Kim Kardashian sues over ‘fake robbery’ claim

Kim Kardashian is suing a celebrity gossip site for claiming she faked the armed robbery in Paris last week.

The reality TV star has filed a lawsuit for defamation and names both the site, MediaTakeout, and its founder, Fred Mwangaguhunga, BBC reports.

We reported last week that Kim was bound, gagged and robbed of about $10 million worth of jewels in a luxury hotel in the French capital.

The lawsuit filed in New York City states that after she had been “the victim of a horrific and traumatic armed robbery in France, Kim Kardashian returned to the US only to again be victimised, 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.”

The lawsuit also said 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.”

Fred Mwangaguhunga has reportedly refused to post a retraction or apologize.

Kim, meanwhile, has been uncharacteristically quiet while she rethinks her very public life with husband Kanye West.
