Rumors may be swirling that Nicole Richie‘s clothing line Winter Kate is suing L.A. hot shop Kitson, but a rep from Majestic Mills, the company that distributes Nicole’s Winter Kate collection, tells PEOPLE that just isn’t the case. “Neither Nicole Richie nor Winter Kate is suing Kitson. This is purely a legal issue between Majestic Mills, a manufacturing company, and Kitson, a vendor. Kitson’s efforts to link Nicole to this are purely attempts for them to generate press, which is unfortunate and ridiculous.” The celeb-friendly store also maintains the issue has nothing to do with the star. “Kitson has always supported Nicole Richie in all her creative endeavors,” Dean Khial, Director of Operations for Kitson, tells PEOPLE. “We are simply defending what was written in the Purchase Orders. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Nicole and the House of Harlow Jewelry Collection by Pascal Mouawad continues to be a best seller at Kitson. Hopefully the input of retailers around the world will help build a successful brand for Winter Kate and House of Harlow as retailers provide access to her fans.”– Andrea DeSimone; reporting by Jen Garcia

I thought the Nicole Richie was the designer and it was her clothing line, so of course she is going to be brought into it. Doesn’t she make money off this? Looks like Majestic Mills is using Kitsons and Nicole Richie to get press. Who is Majestic Mills? I bought a Nicole Richie ring from Kitsons last Christmas and I love it.
