Poor Rick Ross. He can't get a break. Now a very prestigious fashion house is calling him out for wearing fake accessories!!
You see, for the May cover of XXL magazine, Rick Ross was wearing counterfeit Louis Vuitton sunglasses. How do we know it's fake? Louis Vuitton said so.The company's attorney sent the magazine a letter, which I reprinted below:
We were dismayed to see the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine, which features a photo of Rick Ross wearing a pair of sunglasses prominently featuring counterfeit Louis Vuitton trademarks. Because the photo has generated considerable confusion among your readers and Louis Vuitton customers among others, we feel it is important to clarify several points.The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit. Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks. The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton. The third is that counterfeiting is illegal.Thank you for giving us the opportunity to correct the confusion.

Seriously, don't wear your Canal Street knock-offs on an internationally-distributed magazine cover. What da hell is wrong with him??
