Left with no other choice, Brandy’s mom, Sonja Norwood explains that she was hesitant to serve Kim Kardashian, star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, a lawsuit over alleged credit card abuse.
Norwood claims that Kim Kardashian, who was once employed as Brandy’s stylist, had only been authorized to use her card for a single 2004 purchase, and that some unauthorized charges took place at the Kardashian family’s Dash and Smooch clothing stores when the pop singer hired Kardashian in 2006 and 2007. Norwood is now seeking the return of the $120,636 plus 10 percent interest.

“I did not want to commence litigation against the Kardashian family without conducting an exhaustive investigation into the charges and discussing all options, including criminal prosecution, with my family,” Norwood said in a statement issued in line with the legal proceedings that began last week.
According to Norwood, her son Ray J, Kim Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend whom she was involved with in the highly publicized sex tape, and daughter Brandy, singer and former judge on America’s Got Talent, discouraged her to file criminal charges because of their prior friendship. Because of this, she decided to give the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star the opportunity to resolve the matter without going to court but to no avail.
“When the fraudulent charges were brought to their attention, they apologized profusely, and advised us, through their attorneys, that they would pay the debt in full. However, they have since reneged on that promise. I very much look forward to having the Kardashians account for their misconduct in a court of law,” she explained.
On the other hand, Kim Kardashian, her siblings Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Robert Kardashian, maintain that the charges are unfounded and that they look forward to “proving the absurdity of these claims in a court of law.”
