Kardashians Sue Ex-Stepmom Ellen Pearson

April 06, 2013 05:54 AM by Donna W. Martin

Earlier this year, we learned that Ellen Pearson, the widow of the late Robert Kardashian had shared sold very personal excerpts of his diaries to In Touch. And his children, Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Rob Kardashian aren’t happy about it. In fact, they are so outraged that they, along with their mother, Kris Jenner have filed a lawsuit against Pearson. Keep reading for more details.

According to In Touch, the diaries exposed shocking family secrets that the Kardashians would have rather kept under wraps. Some of which include passages that paint Robert’s then Wife Kris as a horrible wife and mother who beat her children and cheated on her husband.

Shortly after the scandal hit the tabloids, Kim and Khloe were quick to fire back in an attempt to shoot down the nasty rumors about their family, especially those depicting their mother as a monster. The sisters denied the claims made in the diary excerpts calling them fake stories. Kim even addressed Pearson saying she was only married to her father for a short time prior to his passing and was just out to destroy their family. But nothing the sisters said deterred their ex-stepmom; she just kept feeding more information to the tabloids.

And now, they’ve had enough! According to OMG!, the Kardashians filed a lawsuit today in California against Pearson. “The Kardashians and Kris Jenner have filed a suit against Ellen Pearson for taking personal property belonging to them by virtue of Robert Kardashian’s will and by virtue of copyright protection,” attorney Marty Singer said in a statement.

But their father’s diaries aren’t the only personal property they are seeking from their ex-stepmom. The lawsuit also mentions photo albums and family holiday photos.

What do you think? Do the Kardashians have a case? And either way, should Pearson be selling the contents of her late husband’s diaries to be shared with the world and for profit? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments section and let us know.

    I beg to differ! We should be allowed to sue the Kardashian family for all the overrated forced exposure in the airways and the news about their pathetic lives for the past several years. I am sick of hearing and seeing crap about them. How many countless hours I was exposed to them which I will never get back again in life that was wasted! Multiply that by how many Americans who do not give a crap about their lives as well! Countless loss of time and energy! I pray that they all disappear from the face of the earth! God grant me this one wish please!

    I think that Ellen Pearson should be put in jail. First of all, respect the dead. I am sure Mr. Kasdashian is turning over in his grave. Life is not all about money. Where is your dignity Mrs. Pearson. If the information is true or not, it is not your information to share with the entire world. I hope Kris, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe will be able to get everything that belongs to them because it is obvious by your actions that you did not love and respect your husband.

    Yes, it may be out of poor judgement, but KUDOS to the widow to show the true KARDASHIAN FAMILY SECRETS. It is amazing that these low lives try to make themselves out to be perfect little family, but the truth is finally being told. And the paternity of Khloe is****NOT Robert Kardashian. What a wonderful family of lies.

    Who really cares about this shallow family? They make money selling their image to the public. Nasty nasty people.

    These people are just unbelievable. If the woman was left the diary’s they are hers to do whatever she want’s with them. The truth hurts and with these people they are non stop do nothings which just suck off the public. If they ever had a real job and had to think about anything but themselves it would be hysterical.

    I think that whatever his ex wife or late wife has or had is her property, she can do whatever she feels like it. If he divorced her and left her with everything she can do whatever she pleases. The kids should of picked up their belongings and now things are being exposed and they dont like it. At the end of the day they are rich and trying to make more money and more news.

    What Robert Kardashian’s ex-widow has said or done, does not define who the Kardashians really are. If there is any truth about what Kris Jenner did, just own up to it and move on. Your family seems solid now. If there is anything that isn’t true, then you bet, you have a defamation law suit. I think that it would be rather hard to prove, whether Kris Jenner was a bad mom or committed fedality, unless her children were willing to state their case as a group of individually. I think however, you have to look at the real reason that Robert Kardashian’s widow alledgely would do such a thing in the first place. Is she coming from an angry place? If so, why?

    Everyone who talks about the Kardashians being “media whores” etc. needs to get over it. Either you’re jealous or just ignorant. If you don’t want to be “bombarded” with Kardashian news, get a life and quit watching/reading it. Turn off the TV or change the channel, and simply don’t read Kardashian news or better yet, take the time out of your day to comment on it. Most people would look just as dumb as they do if they’re daily lives were televised but they don’t get paid for it..so who’s the loser here?
    ALSO- I think that what the late Mr. Kardashians widow is doing is wrong and I think that the Kardashians have every right to sue.

    I don’t think the Kardashian’s should get another dime of anybody’s money. I can see them wanting the photos but this woman has the right to do with what was left to her. It’s not like everybody like them anyway. We all hear the trash about you in force fed articles, so please nothing will shock me.

    The beatings explain why Kim Kartrashagans butt is the size of two, overinflated beach balls. The hole family are no talent media whores.

    Well I hope the diary is read in court and it is televised, this would be reality t.v.

    Well, finally some real reality tv. Cant hide the truth here can you. First, you should have collected all his belongings. Second, where does Kris come into the picture. Nothing belonged to her, just the kids. Oh wait, I forgot she has to cash in on everything her children do, can we say pimp! Third, if the stories the widow is saying are not true, what do you care?! Seriously, you are just as pathetic as her for trying to make money off your dead father. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. Plus, this is mostly publicity because tabloids are tired of the Kardashians not keeping up with their agreements for exclusivity on stories. All together now, Kris Jenner of pimp someone besides you children and Girls + RobJr get out now, before the whole world learns the truth. Prayers to those idiots involved.

    Of course she’s a cheater she hung out w/ Nicole Brown and we know what she was doing. If the widow is tired of the Kardashian’s and have some real information let her do what she feels fit. Obviously their marriage wasn’t all peaches and cream or they wouldn’t have got divorced. Tell all!!!

    Guess it is OK for the the K pack to air all their personal lives and get paid for it but the RK’s ex can’t do the same? Don’t do as I do, do as I Say = Kardashian mantra!

    I would guess the time RK Sr. spent with Pearson was the happiest in his life!

    That is the price they have to pay for their famous life they chose. All I can say is so what, it just gives them another reason to be in the limelight they all so desperately crave.

    OH, YEAH @ Heather!!! You sound like you are part of their family by the tone. It sounds more personal. My name isn’t Lisa either LOL

    I don’t care how anyone feels about the Kardashian clan, I think it’s disrespectful and downright disgusting to sell someone’s secrets, dead or alive. It’s called a diary for a reason BIA!!! She should be ashamed. An earlier commenter stated that the family puts themselves out there all the time, but what everyone is missing is that they do it on there own accord, knowingly, and they made a choice. Their father doesn’t have a choice because he’s no longer here. I’m pretty sure if he wanted her to sell his secrets, he would have done so before he died. He could have written an autobiography if that’s the case. He has passed on, let the secrets of his diary pass on as well. People are so caught up in the limelight and money, they will do anything and she is showing who she really is….a sad and digusting person. YUCK!!!!
