New man: Melissa is said to be dating Kim's ex Reggie Bush
Represented by intellectual property attorney Gary Heckler, Kim's representation told the MailOnline she is seeking compensatory and punitive damages.
However possibly adding fuel to her fire is the rumoured romance between Melissa and Kim's ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush.
The exotic beauty is best known for being a competitor on the 'Pussycat Dolls Presents: The Search For The Next Doll' and also P. Diddy's hit show 'Making The Band,' where she just missed out on becoming part of now defunct female group, Danity Kane.
Melissa also scored a major role in the dance/romance film 'Honey 2', the follow up to Jessica Alba's original flick, Honey, but it went straight to DVD in the U.S.
She also recently released her début single and video 'Dance Floor', where she is seen prancing around and posing in an array of leotards and skimpy bathing suits that show off a rounded derrière, similar to Kim's.
