Luckily, Kim came out unharmed. She reported the crime and flew back home on her private jet. Her husband Kanye West cut his live concert midway when he hurt the news and he has been at her side throughout her ordeal.
Khloe Kardashian revealed that Kim was not doing well after the incident and she was still shocked and depressed about it.
Under those circumstances, a website MediaTakeOut.com owned by Fred Mwangaguhunga, published an article in which they claimed that Kim had faked the robbery.
According to the article, Kim had faked the robbery to claim money from the insurance companies and gain sympathy. Kim is outraged about the allegation made in the article and went ahead to sue the website.
In the lawsuit filed in the court, "malicious publication of the articles, which paint the victim of a serious crime as a criminal herself, is libelous."
According to THR, the lawsuit detailed that the website lacked any factual support when it published a series of articles referring to her as a liar and a thief and alleged that she faked the robbery, lied about the violent assault and filed a fraudulent claim with her insurance company to cheat her carrier out of millions of dollars.
The lawsuit, in addition to punitive damages is also demanding that the website publish a retraction of the article and apologize for the false accusations.
The website has been unavailable for comment. Furthermore, they are also avoiding the demands for apologies.
