The label's statement says the shirts with Shakur's image were obtained from a company that had a valid license to sell them.

The Kendall + Kylie brand superimposed images of the Jenner sisters or other designs over photos of musicians, including Shakur, Notorious B.I.G. and Ozzy Osbourne. It called Miller's lawsuit baseless.

The shirts sold for $125 apiece, but they were they pulled from the marketplace after Osbourne's wife, Sharon, and B.I.G's mother complained and the label apologised. (Read more here)
