Back in February last year, Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian found herself involved in a court case filed by the mother of R&B musician Brandy Norwood. Last Monday, however, the apparent settlement has been dismissed at last.
Brandy's mom, Sonja Norwood, sued the reality TV star, who once worked as the stylist of the singer. She accused Kardashian of charging more than $120,000 to a credit card without permission.
The rest of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians
clan wasn't safe as well. The suit also mentioned Kim's siblings Khloe, Kourtney and Robert Jr. who were said to have run up the charges to the card as well. Norwood went on to say that this occurred in 2006 and 2007, leading her to seek action against them. In addition, Norwood is seeking the return of the money as well as a 10 percent interest.
Kim worked as Brandy's stylist in 2004 and was allowed to use the Norwood American Express card for a single item. Norwood then claimed to discover unauthorized purchases on the card, then later accused Kim Kardashian of passing on the card number to her siblings.
Norwood went on to say that the money was used to run up bills for two of the family's clothing boutiques - Dash and Smooch. All the charges supposedly amounted to a total of $120,636.
At the time, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians
star denied the allegations and released a statement regarding the issue. "The charges against the Kardashians are meritless," it was said. "Both Kim and Khloe were employed by the Norwoods and never used their credit cards without their express authorization. The Kardashian family looks forward to proving the absurdity of these claims in a court of law."
With that, the lawsuit was dismissed on the 1st of June without prejudice. This means the case can no longer be re-filed or appealed. As for comments from both parties, neither could be reached to speak about the matter.
