Chart-topping R&B trio Destiny's Child and manager Mathew Knowles have filed a trademark-infringement suit against magazine publisher H&S Media and its distributor, Warner Publishing Services, Billboard Bulletin reports.

Filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, the suit alleges that the H&S magazine hot! featured a collection of about 30 pin-ups and photographs without the group's consent. The suit also claims that the group's name was significantly larger than that of the magazine, giving consumers the impression that the publication was an authorized Destiny's Child property.

Destiny's Child and Knowles are asking that all unsold copies of the magazine be destroyed. They also seek the publication's profits, as well three times the amount of actual damages caused by the alleged infringement. H&S could not be reached for comment.
