On June 7, Rob, 32, launched his line with some help from sister Kylie Jenner. She modeled a few pieces from the collection on Instagram to help introduce the clothes.

A few days later, Halfway Dead removed several items from their website after another fashion brand, Rx Skulls, accused them of copying a skull graphic.

The skull image was displayed on one of Halfway Dead's orange hoodies and pins. Photos of those clothes were removed from the site.

Rob's company released a statement about the skull design after deleting the merchandise from the site. They explained the origins of the image in their Instagram stories.

“I hate to even have to explain ourselves but we traced this skull above. We showed this to the artist who accused us of stealing his art and after seeing where we got it from he deleted his post about it," the brand wrote.

The company added, "We both moved on and out of respect of the art being similar to his we are not releasing this graphic. We at HWD are artists who have been in the industry for over a decade and wouldn’t purposely copy anyone else’s original art."
