It was not that long ago that Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris and now she still can’t get away from the news surrounding that event. She was robbed of jewelry worth in the range of $10 million.
Well, one website doesn’t believe that she was robbed and has ignored pleas for an apology for being insensitive and flat out wrong. Now, Kim had decided to sue the website for libel, a huge move for both parties.
With the lawsuit out, details about the robbery have been released like the fact that Kim was duct-taped and had a gun to her head at one point during the robbery! What a scary moment for her and we’re not thrilled that someone would say she would lie about such a serious event in her life.
