Beyonce ‘refuses’ to hand over private messages with husband Jay-Z amid trademark legal battle

The couple filed to trademark their daughter's name


Beyonce has reportedly refused to hand over her private messages to her husband, Jay-Z and mother, Tina Knowles during their trademark legal battle.

The couple filed to trademark their daughter, Blue Ivy’s name almost two years ago and are currently involved in a case after wedding planner, Veronica Morales opposed their request.

Veronica owns a company called ‘Blue Ivy’, which was created three years before the couple had their daughter.

According to The Blast, she has reportedly requested to see any documents and communications from the singer that shows she intended to use the trademark, including private texts to her hubby about the lawsuit.


The wedding planner believes that the couple did not intend on using the trademarked name for any further ventures – and claimed they wanted to trademark it so no one else could benefit from the name.

However, Beyonce’s company, BGK Trademark Holdings, allegedly filed an application in February 2017, to trademark the name to launch a series of products including mobile devices, hair care, a clothing line, and even video games.

The documents show that from July 2013 to July 2015, the singer filed five extensions with the US Patent and Trademark Office requesting additional time to file statements showing the use of the Blue Ivy Carter mark.
