After enduring the horrific experience of being held up at gunpoint in her Paris apartment, Kim Kardashian has since had to face the ongoing ugliness of (a) being called a liar or (b) being blamed her for her own assault. Now — unsurprisingly — she is fighting back.
Recently, Kim filed a federal lawsuit against MediaTakeOut after the gossip site wrote a series of allegedly libelous posts suggesting that she staged her own robbery. According to TMZ, Kim’s legal team demanded that the site remove the posts; after they failed to get a response, she filed suit against them.
“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 as a liar and thief,” reads the suit, in which Kim is requesting unspecified damages.
This isn’t the first time the Kardashian-Wests have scuffled with MediaTakeOut; last year, Kanye slammed the site for its negative coverage of his 2015 Yeezy show. This time, however, it sounds like they may actually have a case.
