DESTINY’S CHILD BLAZING AT HOT!

DESTINY’S CHILD are taking legal action against US magazine HOT!, claiming that the magazine presented itself as an official publication endorsed by the group.

According to US site [url=]www.vibe.com, the chart-topping girl group’s manager Matthew Knowles, father of frontwoman Beyonce, was concerned that the title of the magazine was smaller than the group’s name, leading fans to assume it was endorsed and approved by the group. Court papers have revealed that he is seeking punitive damages from the publishers and demanding that any unsold copies be destroyed.

He said the cover of the magazine “gave the impression” the group’s appearance in it was official, authorised and “representative as an official Destiny’s

magazine”.
