English singer and songwriter Tahlia Barnett, of FKA twigs is facing legal dispute with Linda and Laura Good from Twigs, Pitchfork said.

In April 2014, Barnett switched over from Twigs to FKA (Formally Known As) twigs, after being sued by Good who hold a trademark on the name.

Previously, Barnett had reached out to Goods in 2013 offering $15,000 for the right to use the name, Billboard said.

Goods are still not happy. They are forcing Barnett to divert even further from FKA twigs, or come to a greater financial agreement.

When Goods aimed to place a restraining order against Barnett, she fought that other bands such as Dinosaur Jr. (formerly Dinosaur) and blink-182 (formerly Blink) made similar changes in the past.

FKA twigs recently released her music video ‘Pendulum,’ check out Rolling Stone for their take on her hair bondage style video.
