ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Khloe Kardashian has found herself in hot water with Gov. Andrew Cuomo, after her T-shirt line resembled a certain state logo to the point where it apparently violated copyright law.

The design reportedly has been pulled from the high-end apparel line.

Cuomo confirmed his administration sent what he called a “pro forma” letter advising Kardashian that her T-shirt line resembles a state agriculture program logo.

But neither Cuomo nor Agriculture Commissioner Darryl Aubertine would go any farther to comment on a New York Daily News story that included a photo of Kardashian in the tight, white T-shirt.

The state’s design has an image of the Statue of Liberty over farm rows and encircled by the words
“Pride of New York.” Kardashian’s shirt contains the Statue of Liberty logo over rows and “Rich Soil New York,” in a font similar to the New York logo.

The clothing line Rich Soil is run by Kardashian and her husband, NBA basketball player Lamar Odom, the newspaper reported.
