Beyoncé is once again being targeted for not giving proper dues to someone for their contribution. A Bronx-based dancewear line that helped outfit her recent Elle cover claims they weren’t rightfully credited in the story.
Page Six reports:
The singer wore the company’s leggings in the spread, but the piece online only credits Ivy Park, Beyoncé’s own line with Topshop.
A rep for KD told Page Six that the brand was at first credited until someone from Beyoncé’s camp allegedly had Elle pull the online credit.
KD owner David Lee told Page Six, “We were fully credited when the story went up, and then I went back a couple of days later and it was removed. Someone [close to Beyoncé] called and said the credits were going to be removed without any explanation.”
An Elle rep says the mag switched the format of the copy online (it now says to buy the issue for full credits) for the sake of “user experience.”
Lee is crying conspiracy. “If you look at what’s up online right now, it’s implying that everything there belongs to another company,” he says. “We’re a dance manufacturer in The Bronx. We’re talking about Beyoncé and Topshop sharing a little bit of credit.”
