Kim Kardashian Sues Website Over Claims She Faked Paris Robbery
Kim Kardashian isn’t taking a gossip site’s claim that she lied about her traumatic Paris robbery lightly. The reality star is suing mediatakeout.com and its owner Fred Mwangaguhunga for libel per se.
“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,” writes Kardashian attorney Andrew Brettler in a complaint filed Tuesday in New York federal court.
The articles claim she “faked the robbery, lied about the violent assault, and then filed a fraudulent claim with her insurance company to bilk her carrier out of millions of dollars,” Brettler writes.
