(Newser) – Melissa Molinaro looks eerily like Kim Kardashian. She's rumored to be dating Kardashian's ex-boyfriend. She even has a similarly alliterative name. Is it any wonder Kardashian might be a little bitter? The reality show star is suing Old Navy for using Molinaro in its new "Super C-U-T-E" ad campaign—and she wants $15 million to $20 million to get over it, the Daily Mail reports.

Kardashian's lawsuit states that Old Navy is trying to make people think she is associated with the brand; she's suing for the unauthorized use of her "name, likeness, identity, and persona." The ad featuring model-actress-singer Molinaro, styled to look just like Kardashian, has become a viral video hit, and Kardashian is particularly irked that Old Navy is tweeting "at" her about the campaign, thus linking the tweets to Kardashian's own account.
