When FKA Twigs (aka Tahliah Barnett) first started making music, she performed under just simply Twigs. The problem with that was the name already belonged to Linda and Laura Good, who had been performing under the name since the ’90s. In 2013, Barnett reached out and offered the Goods $15,000 for the right to use the name, but was denied and sued by the duo. As a result, Barnett added FKA and became known as FKA Twigs.
However, according to Billboard, the name change apparently wasn’t enough. The Goods are still pursuing further legal action against Barnett, asking for the singer to enter a personal use agreement which would require her paying more than $15,000. As of now, FKA Twigs hasn’t made any additional changes to her name because of the lawsuit, but the Goods’ attorney stated her clients have preserved the right to sue again, so this battle may only be beginning.
