He also claims that using the above name would mean that he is promoting the products.

According to the outlet’s findings, the rapper’s attorney stated in court documents: “(Robyn & Gizelle’s) Reasonably Shady trademark simply looks and sounds like Shady and suggests that it represents the services of Mathers,” Eminem’s team argued.
