With all the gossip surrounding Kim Kardashian’s upcoming wedding, Khloe Kardashian’s marital troubles, and Brue and Kris Jenner’s semi-recent separation, it’s been easy to forget that America’s best known reality family has other drama going on – in the form of ex-stepmom Ellen Kardashian. There haven’t been too many reports out there about the legal troubles that have arisen between Ellen and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars, but now that the Dec. hearing is approaching, new info is coming out.
For those of you unfamiliar with the name Ellen Kardashian, here’s a quick review. She married the late Robert Kardashian back in 2003, just two months before he died from esophageal cancer. Tensions between Ellen and her former stepchildren came to a head earlier this year when Kim and her siblings sued Ellen for selling off private family mementos, including photos and letters, to a magazine in January. Ellen’s reaction was all, “Um hello, you guys exploit yourselves on the reg, so what’s the big deal?” and then she countersued for defamation, emotional distress and some other stuff. She also blasted Keeping Up with the Kardashians as being fake and completely orchestrated.
Kris Jenner is none too happy about that last part, and went on the defense, telling court officials that their show is called a REALITY show for a reason – it’s real, y’all. While she did admit that she and her famous family do provide suggestions and feedback when the show is edited, it is ultimately up to the production company on what gets aired. That means that what we see on TV is real, according to Kris.
Ellen Kardashian says no way, however, and points to a particular episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians as proof. In the episode (season 8, episode 2), Kim is seen talking on the phone to Khloe and Kourtney, saying, “Dad’s ex says that mom used to beat me and hit me and kick me and like she claims dad told her.” Ellen says this is absolutely untrue, and that Robert Kardashian was the one who made the accusation, not her. She also said that Kim’s phone call was all part of a larger Kardashian-Jenner plot to defame her.
Kim Kardashian has fired back at her ex-stepmother, saying in a sworn statement that her dad was not quite right mentally when he married Ellen due to his illness and medications. As you can probably imagine, this did not go over well with the most recent Mrs. Kardashian, whose attorney is promising to lay everything out on the table during their Dec. 17th hearing.
So it’s drama in Kardashian-land, as usual. What do you think about the legal battle brewing between Kim & Co. and Robert Kardashian’s widow? Tell us in the comments!
