LOS ANGELES (AP) — A slippery fight has emerged between the maker of high-end latex clothing worn by Katy Perry and Lady Gaga and a former employee turned competitor.

The Stockroom Inc. sued Abigail Greydanus in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday, claiming she is using some of its designs and disrupted its business relationship with Perry.

Stockroom is the maker of a high-end latex clothing line called SYREN. The company states the SYREN line has created form-fitting suits that have appeared in such as "The Watchmen," "Batman Returns" and "Men in Black II."

The company is seeking an injunction blocking Greydanus from selling latex clothing and costumes, claiming she is using designs she acquired during her nearly three years as a latex assembler.

Greydanus did not immediately return an email message seeking comment.
