Kim Kardashian Sues Over Faking Paris Robbery Accusation

Posted on

Kim Kardashian may be staying out of the spotlight right now, but she isn’t taking too kindly to being accused of fabricating her armed robbery story.

Kardashian is suing and its owner Fred Mwangaguhunga for libel per se.

The reality TV star’s attorney Andrew Brettler wrotein a complaint filed Tuesday in New York federal court, “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.”

According to local authorities, armed robbers in masks stole $11 million in jewelry from Kardashian in the middle of the night on October 2nd.

Brettler wrote that the articles claim that the star “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.”

“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 also wrote.

“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 aclaim with her carrier.”

Kardashian is seeking general, special, punitive and exemplary damages.
