Urban Sues Namesake Over Website
Country music star Keith Urban is suing a namesake painter from New Jersey over his KeithUrban.com website.
The Australian-born singer, who is married to Nicole Kidman, claims the artist, who owns the rights to KeithUrban.com, is trying to mislead users searching for information on him.
According to the SmokingGun.com, the singer filed a lawsuit in Nashville, Tennessee on 2 February (07).
The more famous Keith Urban claims the website never notes the painter is not the singer and is "creating confusion among the public," and giving them the "false impression that the art being sold under the referenced website was produced by plaintiff Urban."
The message on the website of New Jersey's Keith Urban says, "Welcome to the wonderful world of Keith Urban... To those who don't know, oil painting is one of my hobbies."
The site also includes a "virtual gallery" featuring oil paintings for sale.
