Bethenny Frankel is suing TikTok for allegedly allowing scammers to use her “image and likeness” to promote counterfeit products on the platform.

According to docs obtained by Page Six, the “Real Housewives of New York City” alum claims that in September, some of her 994,600 followers notified her upon seeing what appeared to be Frankel promoting a counterfeit designer cardigan.

Frankel says, per the docs, that a scammer had taken a past video of her singing her praises for a different cardigan and edited it to appear as though she was actually promoting the fake product – without her consent.

The Skinnygirl founder says that after seeing the alleged scam, she posted her own video warning her followers of the “unauthorized and illegal use of her persona to sell counterfeit goods,” but claims TikTok deleted the video for being “abusive,” according to the filing.


Frankel has nearly one million followers on the major social media platform.
