Drew Barrymore has been hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit by a fabric designer over a cushion pattern.

The Hollywood actress first partnered with executives at Walmart on the Drew Barrymore Flower Home collection back in March 2019, with the line comprised of decor and furniture pieces.

However, editors at TMZ reported on Thursday that Barrymore is facing a lawsuit from the team at Rule of Three Studio, who have claimed that she copied their Turkish Plume patterns on a cushion design.

Lawyers for the design studio have alleged that they started selling their version, which retails for between $315 and $565 (£250-£443), back in 2015, while the cushion in Barrymore’s range was launched last year.

They are suing both Barrymore and Walmart, and in court documents, requested that the company stop sales of the cushions and asked for all profits from the design as well additional damages.

The Santa Clarita Diet star and her representatives have not yet responded to the lawsuit.

Drew Barrymore Flower Home is the latest addition to Barrymore’s lifestyle empire, with the 45-year-old having first unveiled a range of cosmetics under the Flower banner in 2013 before going on to expand the line to include fragrance and eyewear.

“Drew Barrymore Flower Home is a whimsical, unpretentious collection of furniture and decor,” a Walmart spokesperson said of the designs at the time of the launch. “Inspired by Drew’s own personal aesthetic – and her ability to draw from every genre, style, and era – these gorgeous furnishings and must-have accents help you create a home that truly feels like an amazing mosaic map of yourself and your life.”

Zoey Deutch was pretty in pink at the premiere of Flower on Tuesday night (13Mar18).

The actress turned heads as she stepped out for a special screening of the Max Winkler-directed comedy held at the ArcLight venue in Los Angeles.

Zoey, who father Howard Deutch directed classic ‘80s movie Pretty in Pink, opted to sport an elegant strapless gown made from coral and light pink-coloured jacquard fabric from Prada for the event.

She complemented the dress with a swipe of rose-hued eyeshadow and topped off her ensemble with bling from Tiffany & Co.

A number of celebrities stepped out to show their support for the film, including Ben Platt, Jack Antonoff, and Aubrey Plaza. Going for a relaxed vibe, Aubrey walked the red carpet in a white 3.1 Phillip Lim outfit comprised of silk dress and chunky knit sweater, which she chose to accessorise with Alexandre Birman high heels and a purse from Jimmy Choo.

Across town, the stars of highly-anticipated comedy-drama Love, Simon also celebrated their new movie at the Westfield Century City.

13 Reasons Why’s Katherine Langford, who takes on the part of Leah in the flick, made a sartorial statement in a custom black dress from Stella McCartney featuring puffed sleeves and white detail on the neckline.

The 21-year-old matched the look with black Jimmy Choo pumps, and jewellery from Ana Khouri and Anita Ko.

Lead actor Nick Robinson, who plays closeted gay teenager Simon in the movie, rocked a casual vibe in brown trousers, patterned shirt, and tan leather jacket, while Alexandra Shipp dazzled in a shiny silver slip dress.

Love, Simon castmembers including Josh Duhamel, Logan Miller, and Talitha Bateman were also in attendance.
