Another day, another lawsuit for Kim Kardashian. Not long after being slapped with a lawsuit for her cosmetics line, Kim is being sued again -- this time for her iconic lighted smartphone case, the LuMee. 

No doubt, anyone who's ever taken a gander at any of Kim's social feeds has seen the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star promoting her LuMee case. According to Kim, it helps her take the perfect selfie. But! LuMee apparently isn't the inventor of the illuminated smartphone case -- a man named Hooshmand Harooni is. Or, you know, that's what he's claiming. 

According to TMZ, Harooni says that in 2013 he got a patent for an "integrated lighting accessory and case for a mobile phone device" -- which is exactly what LuMee is. Apparently, Harooni has the receipts to prove all of this and has slapped Kim's company, Kimsaprincess, Inc., with a $100 million lawsuit. 
Evidently, Harooni licensed his idea to a company called Snaplight, which is now struggling to keep its head above water. So, not surprisingly, Snaplight and Harooni are claiming that LuMee stole their invention and made it impossible for them to make any money after they teamed up with an influencer like Kim. 
If Harooni has the receipts to prove that the illuminated phone case really was his idea, he may have a case. But suing Kim? Come on, that's ridiculous. She's just the face of LuMee, she didn't steal anyone's invention herself. 
The Kardashians are no strangers to lawsuits, and, as with most of them, they seem to be taking this one with a grain of salt. A rep for Kim told TMZ, "The patent lawsuit filed by Snaplight has no merit and is just another attempted shakedown. Kim has done absolutely nothing wrong."
So don't go getting too excited there, Harooni.
