Kim Kardashian, star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, is once again the subject of some controversial news. Only this time, the focus of discussion is much more serious than her adventurous social life as she now faces some legal charges.
The 27-year-old reality TV star is now being served with a lawsuit filed on Monday by Sonja Norwood, manager and mother of singer Brandy, who also served as a judge on America’s Got Talent. The lawsuit alleges that Kardashian and three of her siblings, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Robert Kardashian, rang up over $120,000 worth of purchases to Norwood’s credit card without her permission.

kaycee said: um.. why didn’t the mom cancel the credit cards? they racked up $120,000 over 2 years! TWO YEARS!
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 Kim in 2006 and 2007. Norwood is now seeking the return of the $120,636 plus 10 percent interest.
The Kardashians, on the other hand, deny the allegations.
“The charges against the Kardashians are meritless,” Kardashian publicist Cindy Guagenti said in a statement. “The Kardashian family looks forward to proving the absurdity of these claims in a court of law.”
“Both Kim and Khloe were employed by the Norwoods and never used their credit cards without their express authorization,” Guagenti added in the statement.
Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time Kim Kardashian was involved in legal action in court. Previously, she filed for an invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against porn production company Vivid Entertainment, which planned to release a DVD of X-rated footage featuring the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and her then boyfriend William “Ray J” Norwood Jr., who is also Brandy’s brother. Kim eventually reached a multimillion-dollar settlement with Vivid and the video was taken off the market.
