Kim Kardashian West Files Libel Suit Against Gossip Site Claiming She Faked Paris Robbery; They Apologize & Retract

media take out

Kim Kardashian West has sued the online gossip site MediaTakeOut.com for libel after the site portrayed her as a liar and a thief after she was robbed in Paris earlier this month.

In a lawsuit filed in a Manhattan federal court, Kardashian West states not only was she traumatized by the October 3, 2016 robbery but was victimized a second time when the site reported after the attack that she faked the robbery and lied about the assault.

No arrests have been made since, according to Paris police, armed robbers posing as police officers tricked the concierge of the private mansion she was renting while in town for Paris Fashion Week, and then eventually tied, bound and gagged both Kardasian West and the concierge and made off with $10M in jewelry.

The lawsuit says she asked the site to publish a retraction and apologize for painting a victim of a serious crime as a criminal. The lawsuit said the “malicious publication of the articles…is libelous.”

 

After the attack, her husband, Kanye West, abruptly ended his New York concert, announcing that he had a family emergency.

Media Take Out has taken down the post and its editor in chief Fred Mwangaguhunga  told CNN:

“Our number one goal is to produce the most accurate information as quickly as possible and we did that … But now, looking back at it, you have a chance often times to look back and reflect on what it is that happened. It’s now clear that she was robbed. It’s clear that the reporting that we did hurt her, and we certainly don’t want that to be what we do.

It’s a bigger issue than just someone telling you to take it down. Sometimes you take it down because there’s something on there that’s not right and your readers are being misled by the information on it.

Kim Kardashian is not just a celebrity, she is a human being. She is a mother, she is a wife and she was a victim of a violent crime. She definitely did not deserve it and she deserved to be believed.”

Nothing like a million dollar lawsuit to make you change you mind.

Chyna’s best friend Sylvia Karapetian organized the cloud-themed event which featured decadent desserts, cloud-shaped cookies, a cupcake tower and more. The bar was stocked with Moet, Ciroc and top shelf premium alcohol for friends.

The intimate affair was attended by 80 guests including Rob’s friend Scott Disick (ex-boyfriend to his sister Kourtney Kardashian and dad to his nephew and nieces), E! News reported. Rob’s sisters Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall and Kim were at Paris Fashion Week. 

There was a very unique 7-layer topsy turvy cake, balloons in the shape of clouds over the pool and floral arrangements in the shape of clouds. There was a photo booth for kids to

“Rob has been involved in the planning. He really wants Chyna to be happy and he has been helping with the small details so that everything is to her liking,” an insider told E! prior to the bash. “He really wants it to be a special day for her.”

Guests brought several designer and upscale gifts. (see video below). Looks like it was a success and E! News sources said the couple were very affectionate towards one another and Rob seemed very pleased to becoming a dad.

“It was such a fun party. Rob and Chyna had the best time. Rob and Scott arrived together right at the beginning and Rob was the last to leave,” a source shared with E! News. “He was so happy, very very excited about being a dad. Scott kept teasing him and saying “Bob, you are about to be a dad!”

Recall, last week, Rob had a mini melt down and tweeted out his half-sister Kylie’s number out  when he mistakenly thought his sisters were planning a shower without inviting Chyna but he told On Air with Ryan Secrest.

“It was miscommunication,” Rob told Secrest on his daily radio show. “They were trying to all surprise me and do a little shower … I took it the wrong way because it was a surprise, so I thought they weren’t going to have Chyna there.”

At least Rob manned up to the very juvenile mistake.

“It was literally miscommunication and I probably shouldn’t have went on Twitter, but I did,” he admitted. “We all love each other and we’re all family and I never want to beef or argue with anybody.”

Chyna and Rob got engaged in April after three months of dating and announced they’re expecting the next month.

Check out the photos that various guests and vendors shared on Instagram, including photos of a maternity shoot they did with PEOPLE magazine.
