"It's beautiful to be good." That's the philosophy of Kate Hudson's new hair prduct line, David Babaii for Wildaid.

But in case you hadn't heard, Kate is being sued by another hair care company that claims she stole their idea and their secret ingredient.
 
And she's not happy about it.
 
 220 Labs files a lawsuit against Kate on Friday, alleging that she used a sample they gave her to create her own line. They say she stole their "secret" ingredient: volcanic ash.
 
"Kate does not know the plaintiffs and has never met with them or spoken with them," her rep said. "Her (attorneys) believe that the claims are baseless and without merit and (they) intend to vigorously defend the lawsuit."
 
Kate, David and Universal (the manufacturer) have been charged with misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract, breach of confidence and fraud.
