BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West is suing an Alabama doctor over claims he wrongly used her image to promote a medical procedure called a “Vampire Facial.” West filed suit Tuesday in Los Angeles against Dr. Charles Runels of Fairhope, Alabama. The suit claims Runels misused West’s image in promotional materials after she posted a photo of herself on social media showing the results of a “Vampire Facial.” She’s asking a federal judge to bar Runels from using her name or photo and to make him pay her profits. Runels says West improperly used his trademarked procedure name to promote herself.
