Life Kim Kardashian challenges vampire facial doctor By weekster Posted on December 12, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ A doctor who uses images of Kim Kardashian to promote so-called vampire facials is being sued by the reality star. Kardashian says she has never given permission to use her photos, and moreover says that the treatment is not recommended at all. E! managed to get their hands on the court papers that the 39-year-old filed. In it, her lawyers state that she initially directly asked the doctor to remove her photos from his website. This doctor not only refused, he also demanded that Kardashian pay him. In a response to E! the doctor states that he has copyright on the term “vampire facial”, and that Kardashian has named the treatment in reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. In 2013, Kourtney & Kim Take Miami spin-off showed how Kardashian underwent such treatment, whereby blood is collected, treated and injected again. A few years later, the reality star announced on her website that she regretted the vampire facial and would never do it again, because she found the treatment too intense and painful.
