What the hell Rick? Fake Shades

XXL magazine put Def Jam star Rick Ross on the cover of their May issue, on newstands now. The rapper was photographed at close range, donning Louis Vuitton sunglasses. The publication learned, by way of letter to the editorial staff from Vuitton's attorney, that those glasses were indeed fake, causing a lot of controversy for the famed designer brand, and perhaps the rapper.

Sent by Michael D. Pantalony, Esq., the letter claimed the glasses' trademarks were "counterfeit," and caused "confusion" for readers and consumers. The attorney also clarified that Vuitton has no known association with the rapper or the publication.

Ross has yet to comment on the claims.

Previously, rumors have swirled that Fabolous has worn counterfeit Nike sneakers and Lil Wayne has been photographed in counterfeit Bathing Ape clothing. Neither claims were ever verified, and both refuted by rappers.
