It seems that the company filed a lawsuit against the singer claiming she soled their trademark. The L.A. Triumph’s attorney said: ‘Our client and its predecessor have been continually selling similar clothes in similar retail outlets at similar price points under their Material Girl brand since at least 1997 and Madonna and her new-found company do not have the right to trade in the same space under this brand.’
Even so, Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes, 13, was the one that designed the Material Girl Brand, that Madonna is being sued now. The singer told People magazine how Lourdes inspired the clothing line: ‘I usually tell her to take off her three-inch or six-inch platforms and pull her skirt down just a little bit and take off some of the black eye makeup.
‘My role is really to make sure we were all going in the right direction … and it was a line that I could stand behind and be proud of and feel good about and one that she could also feel represented her. … ‘I really like the way Lola dresses, and I think this line is absolutely an extension of her taste.’
Actress Taylor Momsen, 17, was the image of Material Girl Brand launched several weeks ago by Madonna in the Macy’s stores. Until now, no comments were given by Madonna concerning this matter.
Macy’s, one of the largest chains in the United States, will spread starting August 2010, at more than 200 of its stores, but its official website, pants, shirts, school bags and other accessories of this collection entitled “Material Girl”, one of the singer nicknames in the ’80s. This is seen as “a collection of beginning of a new school year”.
” Material Girl “will be a dynamic and exclusive brand of Macy’s group,” said Jeff Gennette, marketing manager of this group.
The “Material Girl” collection, which is also the name of a track from the album “Like A Virgin” of Madonna, was designed and drawn by the famous American singer and her daughter, Lourdes, aged 13 years, in collaboration with a textile company, Iconix Brand Group.
The articles in this collection will have sale prices ranging from 12 to 40 dollars, considered extremely affordable prices compared with those from the specialized shops in children articles.
It seems that the former couple’s son, Rocco 9 years old, and David Banda, 4 years old, wants their parents to get back together and they also want a settled home life especially due to Madonna’s split from Jesus Luz.
“Both Guy and Madonna hated the way it all ended,” said a source close to the pair.
“They adore their children above all else and, now they’ve had time to cool off, they’re listening to what the kids have to say.”
Lourdes – Madge’s 13-year-old daughter by her former fitness trainer Carlos Leon — also wishes her mom to get back with Ritchie.
“The kids see their mom’s split from Jesus as an opportunity for their parents to reunite so they can all be one big happy family,” dished the insider.
“All divorced couples face this kind of dilemma and all kids want to reunite separated parents. But in this case it just might work”.
“Madonna really loves being a home-body when she gets the chance and Guy too places great store on having a close-knit family”.
“They’re both still smarting from their divorce wounds”.
“But Madonna, especially, regrets losing Guy. It’s possible she is ready to make compromises.”
Nevertheless, the singer and Guy divorced in October 2008 after 8-years of marriage.

On the other hand, rumors also say that teenage Lourdes has the habit to polemics with her superstar mother about her fashion choices.
Rumors say that mother Madonna is trying to make her daughter be more self confident and to be able to defend on her own : “Occasionally, they argue because Lourdes might like to wear something her mother doesn’t agree with.
