“After having been the victim of a horrific and traumatic armed robbery in France, Kim Kardashian returned to the United States only to again be victimized, but this time by an online gossip tabloid that published a series of articles in early October 2016 referring to her a liar and thief,” Her Attorney, Andrew Brettler wrote in the court complaint on Tuesday.Kim’s legal team are arguing that the site didn’t use any legit sources and purposely published its posts to harm her.
“Kim Kardashian was assaulted and robbed by two masked men, who placed a gun to her head, duct-taped her hands, legs and mouth, and then left her lying helplessly on the bathroom floor of her rented apartment while the thieves absconded with millions of dollars in jewelry,” Brettler writes.
“As if that ordeal were not awful enough, Defendants made it worse by publishing on the Website, only hours after the assault, that Kardashian faked the robbery and then committed insurance fraud by filing a false claim with her carrier.”
Kardashian is seeking general, special, punitive and exemplary damages. MediaTakeOut has not responded to the lawsuit.
