We can add this one to the never ending Trove of things Beyonce has been collectively accused of. According to reports, a New York based dancewear company KD New York has accused the Singer of removing credits to his company in an Elle cover story about the new Ivy Park collection.

via Page Six:

A rep for KD told Page Six that the brand was at first credited until someone from Beyoncé’s camp allegedly had Elle pull the online credit.

“We were fully credited when the story went up, and then I went back a couple of days later and it was removed,” owner David Lee told us. “Someone [close to Beyoncé] called and said the credits were going to be removed without any explanation.” Lee said they lent the mag over 60 pieces.

Elle’s site instructs readers to pick up the print issue on newsstands “for a list of complete fashion credits” while mentioning, “Beyoncé wears Ivy Park throughout.”

But Lee said: “If you look at what’s up online right now, it’s implying that everything there belongs to another company. We’re a dance manufacturer in The Bronx. We’re talking about Beyoncé and Topshop sharing a little bit of credit.”

An Elle rep said, “The format of the story was modified solely to benefit user experience and showcase the content.”

The magazine was recently slammed by a disgruntled freelance writer in a bizarre Observer piece called “Elle on Earth.”

Meantime, a KD rep snarked of the Beyoncé brouhaha: “It’s complete greed. It’s disgraceful that they could not share even a fashion credit with a ‘Made in USA’ minority-owned clothing line.”
