Kim Kardashian Isn't Taking Marriage Sham Charges Sitting Down

Kim KardashianIt's one thing for those of us at home to sit back and analyze and complain about Kim Kardashian's sham marriage. It's another when a former employee of hers goes off spouting supposed evidence that her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries was all a lie. And Kim isn't taking it lightly. According to TMZ, she's pulled out the big legal guns and is firing away.

The target: Jonathan Jaxson, her former publicist, who last week made all sorts of claims about Kim staging big events in her life, like the engagement ring she supposedly got from Reggie Bush. Kardashian has reportedly hired attorney Marty Singer and is seeking at least $200,000 for damage to her reputation.

Now I think Kim's reputation has been so incredibly damaged by this whole marriage that there's no way he did that much damage himself. But I do think he gave some "credibility" to all the allegations against her. And, the more information that comes out, the more he seems like a publicity-hungry leech, who's trying to benefit off of her current sad situation. For that alone, I hope he gets taken to the bank.

See, he's currently promoting his own book, "Don't You Know Who I Am Yet? PT 1." And presales just happen to start tomorrow. How convenient. I'm sorry, but as irked as I am with Kim over this whole thing, he irks me even more based on what's been reported.

First of all, he hasn't spoken with her in years, so it's ridiculous to think he would know anything about her marriage to Kris Humphries and if she still harbors feelings for Reggie Bush. Also, he supposedly signed a confidentiality agreement for the little work he did do with Kim.  On his website he denies it and  states, "To the best of my knowledge, 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." Whatever that means.

My guess is she wouldn't have gotten legal if there wasn't some grounds for the suit. Otherwise, she doesn't have much to gain. And it's just slimy in general to gossip about someone who you claim to have been working for as a "publicist/friend." Kim's wedding may or may not have been a "sham," but this guy shouldn't be trying to make a buck off of an already bad situation.

Do you think the lawsuit against Kim's ex-publicist is legitimate?
