Kim Kardashian drops Paris robbery lawsuit

Kim Kardashian has dropped her lawsuit against the media outlet that accused her of faking the Paris robbery earlier this month.

The reality TV star was set to drag US celebrity gossip site MediaTakeOut to court after it reported that Kim might have faked being bound, gagged and robbed at gunpoint in the French capital on October 3, BBC reports.

The 36-year-old beauty has now dropped the case after the site published an apology.

The headline for the apology reads: “RETRACTION: Kim Kardashian Was In Fact ROBBED In Paris!!”

“MediaTakeOut regrettably published a series of false stories about Kim Kardashian West suggesting she faked the robbery in Paris, lied to authorities and then filed a $5.6 million fraudulent insurance claim for her stolen jewelry,” the apology reads.

Indeed, Kim’s lawsuit stated that MediaTakeout “claimed, without any factual support whatsoever, that Kardashian 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.”

The lawsuit singled out both MediaTakeout and its founder, Fred Mwangaguhunga, for defamation.

“We have permanently removed from our website any and all posts that suggested she staged the robbery, lied about it to the French police and committed an insurance crime,” the site’s statement continues.

“We sincerely apologize to Mrs. Kardashian West and her family for the false stories we published and regret suggesting that what happened to her in Paris was anything less than horrific.”

Even in her darkest hour, Kim is one classy lady for accepting the apology for that outrageous lie!
