    Milf of the Year nominee Gigi Dior trademarked her “porn name” last year to prevent rivals from trading under her brand.

    But now venerable French fashion house Christian Dior has issued a “cease and desist” order against the 40-year-old OnlyFans star, claiming that her choice of stage name is damaging their business.

    “This is ridiculous,” Gigi responded. “My name has nothing to do with couture and the funny part is — what I do usually involves wearing no clothes at all!”

    Lawyers acting for Christian Dior Couture wrote that “All goods and services … are opposed, namely: Entertainment services … personal appearances by a porn star… providing a web site featuring non-downloadable adult-themed photographs and videos.”

    The 76-year-old fashion empire claims that Gigi’s use of the name risks “Priority and likelihood of confusion, dilution by blurring and dilution by tarnishment”.

    Gigi, who cameoed in the music video for Bloodhound Gang’s Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo as well as appearing in several porn movies including Hot MILFs F***, told Page Six that she registered her name in September.

    “I trademarked my stage name for entertainment and modelling purposes," she explained.

    “I had to show proof of what I was using the name for, so I used appearances at exotica, and a website for confirmation … My request was granted”.

    But a month later came the response from the French designer label: “I received notice from Christian Dior Couture that they were appealing my trademark approval and they claim that the name Dior is being diluted and that I am diluting their products.”

    The single mother of four fears that if she’s forced to change her stage name, she’ll lose ether profile she has been carefully building up across the web, on social media and via OnlyFans.

    “If I lose my name… I have built a brand around this name, it has become me and my reputation, so it’s really devastating to think I might have to start from scratch and rebrand everything."

    “I have thousands and thousands of T-shirts, signs and photographs," Gigi added. "I have retained websites, all of my social media. I’d have to start again, it’s going to be a huge undertaking if I lose this name.

    “I’m devastated, and it is ridiculous.”

    Gigi tweeted a photo of herself with a sour expression while standing in front of a life-sized lingerie poster of herself: “This is the face you make when you learn that a company with over 50 billion dollars in revenue took legal action against you…”

    She urged fans to mobilise and retweet her claim to the name.

    One Twitter user suggested that she just make a minor change to her name, such as adding an ‘e’.

    However, Gigi responded: “That sounds easy enough, except I already have signs, banners, merchandise, websites, and over $10,000 in marketing that can’t be changed. So it will be back to square one and lots of money lost”.
