The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star must be so over 2017.

Al Pereira, known for his iconic images of famed hip hop acts like Queen Latifah and Ol' Dirty Bastard, claims Kendall Jenner, Inc., had no right to use his image of Tupac, Biggie and Redman.

Kendall Jenner's company faces a third lawsuit over rap icons T-shirt.

As Billboard previously reported, Michael Miller, one of Tupac's photographers, filed suit against the Kendall + Kylie Jenner brand back in July, alleging the sisters used his photograph without proper permission or licensing for their now-controversial "band tees".

"I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this", Biggie's mother Voletta Wallace, who issued a cease and desist letter to the sisters, wrote on Instagram in late June 2017. "I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. Stick to what you know...lip gloss".

Kendall and Kylie later responded to the backlash, posting a joint apology on their social media accounts.

At the time the T-shirts were on sale Kendall released a statement, saying, "These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologise to anyone that has been upset and/or offended". The former Victoria's Secret model went on explaining, "We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway".
