R&B superstar Trey Songz is counter-suing Storage Wars star David Hester over the trademarking of the phrase “Yup!”
As we previously reported, the ridiculous situation began Trey Songz sent a cease-and-desist letter to Hester to get him to stop using the phrase “Yup!” Hester then counter-sued Trigga over the use of the word because both sell merchandise with the phrase emblazoned on it. David Hester asked a judge to allow him to continue to use the word in spite of the cease and desist letter Trey sent the reality star.
Songz filed court documents on April 2nd claiming he’s had the rights to “Yup!” since 2009 while Hester filed papers to trademark the term in 2011. Trigga Trey wants a judge to make David Hester’s trademark null and void. Trey also wants the judge to have Hester pay up for damages.
A judge has yet to make a ruling in the case.
