Trey Songz is engaged in a legal battle fighting for ownership of his signature term “Yuuup” (as in Songz Yuuup).
According to TMZ, Songz and Storage Wars star David Hester have each claimed the trademark for yuuup in court documents filed in New York.
Hester reportedly sued over “yuuup” last year claiming he had a trademark to sell merchandise despite Trey Songz sending a cease and desist order.
In recent weeks, Songz filed a claim that he’s had a right to “yuuup” since 2009 and thus owns all rights to the term since Hester filed his trademark in 2011.
Trey Songz reportedly wants a judge to void Hester’s trademark and award damages.
