While accepting the Vanguard Award at the All Def Movie Awards on Wednesday night, former stripper Amber Rose told the audience that she had bought the popular Los Angeles strip club Ace of Diamonds. Amber, who was there with former fellow stripper Blac Chyna, didn’t elaborate on when she bought the strip club or why. She just said she bought it and that was that.
There’s just one little problem. Ace of Diamonds claims she didn’t buy it and TMZ says that they’re suing her for slander and they want $1 million. SKWS Enterprises, who own Ace of Diamonds, calls Amber’s claim “unequivocally false.” The lawsuit adds that Ace of Diamonds hasn’t been sold to anyone, much less to Amber Rose.
But it sounds like Amber is sure she’s about to be a strip club owner. TMZ says that back in December, Amber formed a corporation called Ace of Diamonds, Inc. and filed for a trademark on that name as well as a trademark for the abbreviation “AoD.” The documents for the trademark request describe the company as “entertainment services in the nature of live dance performances” and “gentlemen’s clubs featuring exotic dancing.” Basically, Amber Rose is trying to open a strip club called Ace of Diamonds. Her trademark request hasn’t been approved yet, but she tells TMZ that she plans on opening a new location in a month and a half.
I’m wondering why the owners of Ace of Diamonds never trademarked their business name? Someone is obviously going to have to change their name. Just a simple change so you don’t get hit with a cease-and-desist. Like Ass of Diamonds. Sounds kind of like the old name, and it tells people exactly what they’re getting.
