Jenner Apology Not Good Enough for Notorious B.I.G. Estate

Earlier this week Kendall and Kylie Jenner apologized to the Estate of rapper Notorious B.I.G. for using his image on their T-Shirt line without permission [click here if you missed that].

The estate is moving forward with a lawsuit...

The Estate of Biggie Smalls tells People Magazine,
''While we appreciate that the Jenners have made an apology and pulled the unlawful and unauthorised items, this matter has yet to be resolved.''
Meanwhile the estate for The Doors are also suing the Jenner Sisters.

An attorney for the 70s rock band tells Rolling Stone,
"This is a case of people who fashion themselves as celebrities who are famous for being well-known but don't actually do anything trying to utilize and steal and capitalize on the legacies of those who actually did do something and created amazing art and messages." 
"It's ironic, at least, and criminal, at worst, both morally, ethically and artistically."
"They're obviously attention-seeking missiles who crave celebrity and being well-known but don't actually do anything." 
"It's the polar opposite of the artists that they're trampling all over. It's just spitting in the face and on top of art and message and soul and legacy."
