Katherine Heigl, an actress most known for her role as Dr. Isobel Stevens on Grey’s Anatomy, claims major drug store chain Duane Reade is shamelessly using her image to promote its brand.
Katherine filed a federal lawsuit in which she claims she was exiting a Duane Reade in NYC last month, when a paparazzo snapped a pic of her carrying a Duane Reade bag.
Katherine says she was horrified to learn the drug store later tweeted, alongside the aforementioned photo, “Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KatieHeigl can’t resist shopping #NYC’s favorite drugstore.”
Katherine demanding $6 Million from the drug store chain.
Katherine also says she’ll donate her monetary judgment to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation which focuses on animal welfare.
A spokesman for Duane Reade said the company has a policy of not commenting on pending litigation. Its lawyers have not filed a response in court.
