Kim Kardashian has decided to drop a court case against celebrity gossip website Media TakeOut that claimed she staged an armed robbery in Paris.

The reality star’s lawyer said the two sides had resolved the issue.

Media TakeOut reported Kim Kardashian had faked being robbed at gunpoint at a luxury apartment in Paris earlier this month.

The site also accused the reality star of making a fraudulent insurance claim for millions of dollars of jewellery.

According to French police, Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint by at least two men dressed as police officers who stole a box containing jewellery worth up to $6.7 million.

Her husband, Kanye West, was on stage at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York at the time of the robbery.

Kanye West ended his set as soon as he heard the news, telling fans: “I’m sorry, family emergency. I have to stop the show.”

A spokeswoman for Kim Kardashian said she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed”.

Some have suggested she had made herself vulnerable by revealing her location and posting photos of jewellery in the days before the attack.

Kim Kardashian has since been virtually silent on social media with her only appearance coming on her birthday when Caitlyn Jenner posted a picture with her on Instagram.


Kim Kardashian is suing celebrity gossip website Media TakeOut and its founder for claiming that she faked being the victim of a robbery in Paris last week.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for defamation and names both Media TakeOut and Fred Mwangaguhunga.

They made off with jewelery worth about $10 million.

The lawsuit filed in federal court in New York said that after being “the victim of a horrific and traumatic armed robbery in France, Kim Kardashian returned to the US only to again be victimized, but this time by an online gossip tabloid that published a series of articles in early October 2016 referring to her as a liar and thief”.

The articles, the lawsuit said, “claimed, without any factual support whatsoever, that Kardashian faked the robbery, lied about the violent assault, and then filed a fraudulent claim with her insurance company to bilk her carrier out of millions of dollars”.

Fred Mwangaguhunga refused to publish a retraction and an apology “for calling her a liar and a criminal”, the lawsuit added.

Media TakeOut has so far not commented.

Kim Kardashian, 35, who is married to rapper Kanye West, became a household name thanks to the reality TV series Keeping up with the Kardashians.
