Kim Kardashian is suing celebrity gossip website Media TakeOut and its founder for claiming that she faked being the victim of a robbery in Paris last week.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for defamation and names both Media TakeOut and Fred Mwangaguhunga.
Kim Kardashian was tied up by gun-wielding robbers who broke into a Paris flat earlier this month, police say.

They made off with jewelery worth about $10 million.
The lawsuit filed in federal court in New York said that after being “the victim of a horrific and traumatic armed robbery in France, Kim Kardashian returned to the US only to again be victimized, 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 articles, the lawsuit said, “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 refused to publish a retraction and an apology “for calling her a liar and a criminal”, the lawsuit added.
Media TakeOut has so far not commented.
Kim Kardashian, 35, who is married to rapper Kanye West, became a household name thanks to the reality TV series Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Kim Kardashian has revealed in the May 31 midseason finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she is pregnant with her second child with Kanye West.
Kim Kardashian, 34, has confirmed the exciting news to her family, in the scenes teasing the second half of KUWTK‘s season: “I just got the blood test back and I am pregnant!”
Before the episode aired, Kim Kardashian took to Twitter saying: “Who is excited for tonight’s KUWTK finale?!?!?! There’s some exciting news to share so make sure you tune in!!!!!”
Kim Kardashian, the mom of daughter North West, 23 months, has been vocal about her struggle to conceive a second child. The reality star even allowed KUWTK cameras to document her visits with a fertility doctor throughout season 10.
Former Olympian Bruce Jenner was reportedly offended when InTouch magazine edited a photo of Kris Jenner’s ex-husband for its cover, giving him makeup and combining his image with that of Dynasty actress Stephanie Beacham.
Bruce Jenner will address questions around his changing appearance on a forthcoming episode of Keeping up With the Kardashians, according to Us Weekly.
A source told the magazine Bruce Jenner “was upset by InTouch’s story”, which Russell Brand recently criticized as a transphobic “celebration of the worst aspects of human values”.
The source adds that Bruce Jenner’s family “has been pushing him to make a statement” about the magazine cover.
The preview of the July 27 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians showed that things get tense between Kim and Khloe Kardashian on the family’s vacation to Thailand, when Khloe decides to “get the freak out of [there]” early.
Kim Kardashian, 33, doesn’t understand why her younger sister, 30, is so eager to leave and travel alone, and she has no problem saying so. Her disapproval doesn’t sit well with Khloe Kardashian, who responds by mocking Kim’s rather obsessive habit of taking pictures of herself.

“Why don’t you go take some more selfies?” Khloe Kardashian quips.
“I’m doing it for Kanye, someone that I love,” Kim Kardashian replies, to which Khloe sarcastically retorts: “One day I’ll be so lucky.”
Clearly annoyed, Kim Kardashian fires back with a diss about Khloe’s post-split relationship with French Montana.
“You want to get home to the 50 rappers you’re dating,” Kim Kardashian says.
“You’re, like, a miserable person.”
Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on E!
On last night’s season 10th premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kourtney Kardashian revealed that she is pregnant with her third child.
The episode starts out with Kim Kardashian and sisters Kourtney and Khloé jumping on a trampoline in the backyard, but things get serious when Khloé reveals that someone has already made an offer on the house that she and Lamar Odom used to live in together.
Scott Disick is planning to buy a sports car for Kourtney Kardashian and invites Khloé to help him pick it out.

While looking at cars together, Scott Disick told Khloé Krdashian that he is planning to go back to the retreat in Arizona that he went to with Kourtney because he is having a hard time dealing with some things in his life and he wants to get in touch with his emotions. He also wishes that Kourtney would open up to him a bit more because he really needs someone to be there for him.
Scott Disick decides on a white Ferrari as a gift for Kourtney Kardashian.
He surprises Kourtney with the Ferrari that he bought for her. But when he takes her into the garage, Scott is frustrated by Kourtney’s lack of excitement and inability to express her emotions, which makes it hard for him to figure out how she even feels.
Kourtney Kardashian sits down with Scott Disick and says that she would like to do more for him on an emotional level and promises to listen to him more. Scott Disick tells Kourtney Kardashian that he loves her and is thankful that she is trying to work on her issue for their relationship.
Then Kourtney Kardashian makes the announcement that will change their lives forever: She’s pregnant with their third child!
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are reportedly separated, InTouch magazine has claimed.
The magazine reported that Scott Disick has moved out of the Kardashian’s Calabasas, California, estate and into the Montage Beverly Hills Hotel.

According to InTouch, Scott Disick, 30, he was seen last week with an “exotic-looking” brunette, with a body language-reading spy maintaining that the way “they looked at each other suggested they were a lot more than friends. A man with a long-term partner and two children should never behave like that with another woman.”
However, Kourtney Kardashian, 34, and Scott Disick – who have 4-year-old Mason and 17-month-old Penelope together – were spotted Tuesday cruising around Los Angeles in Disick’s red Ferrari.
The Kardashians insiders called the rumors “ridiculous” and “not true”.
The Kardashian – Jenner clan revealed their latest family holiday card on Sunday’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians: a Very Merry Christmas.
Shot by fashion shutterbug David LaChappelle against a backdrop of Hollywood movie theater props and old tabloids, the family photo features plenty of cleavage, leg and general oddball behavior. Various photos of the family members – including one in the form of Bruce Jenner on an old Wheaties box from his Olympian era – also dot the scenery.
The Kardashian – Jenner clan revealed their latest family holiday card
In previous years, the family’s holiday card has included Kim, Khloe and Kourtney’s significant others, but this year, Scott Disick, Kanye West and Lamar Odom are notably absent.
Also missing from the frame is Kim Kardashian’s 6-month-old daughter, North, although the lack of a few loved ones doesn’t seem to have dampened anyone’s photo shoot fun.
“I loved working with David LaChapelle,” Kris Jenner recently told E! News of the shoot.
Brody and Brandon Jenner are reportedly happy with Bruce and Kris Jenner’s separation after 22 years of marriage.
Bruce Jenner’s sons from a previous marriage allegedly blame Kris Jenner for taking their father away from them when they were growing up, according to TMZ sources.
Brody and Brandon Jenner are reportedly happy with Bruce and Kris Jenner’s separation after 22 years of marriage
The website reported that when Bruce and Kris Jenner said “I do” in 1991, Brody and Brandon felt abandoned by their biological dad when they were left to be raised by their mom Linda Thompson and her new husband, David Foster.
TMZ‘s sources claim the boys felt Kris Jenner convinced their dad to leave them for his new family, and they have been carrying around bitterness toward Kris ever since.
Brandon and Brody Jenner reportedly know that Bruce did not pay child support for 10 years and then gave $1,500 a month afterward, and they think it’s because Kris was calling the shots.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality show will continue to film post the couple’s new separate living arrangements.
In a new trailer for the seventh season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kris Jenner, the matriarch of the family, is seen with a pout which looks suspiciously enhanced compared to her usual appearance.
Kris Jenner, 56, is seen looking shocked as she wakes up in her bed with a much bigger top lip.
The leader of the Kardashian clan shows off her new look to daughter Kim, 31, and son Rob, 25, as the two siblings stand gobsmacked at their mother’s bedside.
Kris Jenner, who is still in her pyjamas and is wearing no make-up, appears horrified by her overnight transformation and tries to hide her mouth with her hand.

The rest of the family hear the commotion and rush into the bedroom surprised by Kris Jenner’s plump top lip.
It is not clear from the 30 second clip whether the mother-of-six has really had a bad reaction to a cosmetic surgery procedure, or if she is playing a prank on her children.
Later in the trailer viewers are shown the Kardashians going on holiday to their favorite destination of the Dominican Republic.
It isn’t long before Kris Jenner is the centre of attention again as her daughters decide to target their mother.
Four bikini clad Kardashian girls gang up on Jenner who is again lying in her bed.
The socialite and businesswoman is literally dragged from her mattress kicking and screaming on a dark blue rug.
Her daughters pull her all the way to the swimming pool before dumping her in the crystal blue waters while she is still wearing her dressing gown.
Embarrassed and not much amused by the antics of her offspring, Kris Jenner barely keeps her dignity as her derriere is exposed as she tries to exit the pool.
The seventh season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians will premiere on 20 May 2012 on E!
With eighteen, hour long episodes, this will be the longest ever series of the popular reality TV show.
