Kevin Durant is being sued for use of nickname ‘Durantula’

Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant is being sued for the use of the nickname “Durantula.” Mark Durante, a guitarist who once played with several ’80s rock bands, has filed the lawsuit claiming it was his “on-stage and performance persona’.”  Complex magazine has the story:

When it rains, it pours. With Oklahoma City down 3-1 to Miami in the NBA Finals, the last thing Kevin Durant needs is an off-the-court distraction. According to TMZ, a guitarist named Mark Durante, who once played with Public Enemy (not the hip-hop group), The Aliens, The Next Big Thing, and other bands, is suing Durant over the nickname “Durantula.” In the lawsuit, which was filed yesterday, Durante is claiming that he used the alias for his “‘on-stage and performance persona’ and has since used it to market ‘music, recordings, apparel, t-shirts, guitars, and related merchandise.’”

Even though Durant’s reps are reportedly claiming that they’re not using the nickname, Durante is countering that Nike has made a “Durantula”-themed T-shirt.
