Kim Kardashian 'Getting Legal With Former PR'
Reality TV star going after guy who claimed her marriage was a sham...
Kim Kardashian is reported to be taking a tough line with a former publicist who has been claiming that her marriage to Kris Humphries was a sham.
The 31-year-old star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is claimed by US gossip site TMZ to have hired legal 'pit bull' Marty Singer to sue Jonathan Jaxson for defamation.
And the site claims that she'll be asking for a cool $200k to make amends for the damage she feels his comments have caused to her reputation.
She is apparently irate that Jaxson, with whom she says she only worked briefly several years ago and barely remembers, has decided to "spill the beans" on matters which she claims he has no knowledge of - just when he happens to have a book out.
Kim's lawyer told TMZ: "Everything that he is saying is false and nonsense. This guy is in it to promote himself for his 15 mins of fame."
The site also claims that Kim reckons she got Jaxson to sign a confidentiality agreement, which he is now violating.
But Jaxson was quoted as responding: "I have never signed an agreement dealing with confidentiality with Kim Kardashian. I have an agreement in my possession that does not have either parties' signature on it."
