Brandy's Ma to Kim K

You Screwed My Girl, Too

2/4/2008 9:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brandy's mom is suing everyone Kardashian, claiming they raped her financially.


According to a lawsuit filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Sonja Norwood, the mom of Brandy and Ray J, claims in 2004, when Kim K was a stylist, she was given permission to use Sonja's American Express card to make "one (and only one)" purchase on behalf of Sonja.

According to the suit, Kim allegedly gave the card to other members of her family -- Khloe, Kourtney and Robert Jr. The suit claims in 2006, the Ks racked up $62,793.83 in unauthorized charges. And, in 2007, they blew another $57,841.82. The total: $120,635.65!

And get this for audacity: the suit claims the Kardashians charged thousands of dollars in their own stores, Dash and Smooch.

It's unclear why Sonja didn't just cancel the card.

UPDATE: TMZ got the following statement from the Kardashians: "The charges against the Kardashians are meritless. Both Kim and Khloe were employed by the Norwoods and never used their credit cards without their express authorization. The Kardashian family looks forward to proving the absurdity of these claims in a court of law."

UPDATE: TMZ obtained this statement from Sonja Norwood: "I did not want to commence litigation against the Kardashian family without conducting an exhaustive investigation into the charges, and discussing all options, including criminal prosecution, with my family. After Ray J and Brandy urged me not to file criminal charges because of their prior friendship, I decided to afford the Kardashians an opportunity to resolve this matter without a lawsuit.

When the fraudulent charges were brought to their attention, they apologized profusely, and advised us, through their attorneys, that they would pay the debt in full. However, they have since reneged on that promise. The investigation has revealed that the Kardashians used their two stores and other stores that I have never visited to take advantage of me. I very much look forward to having the Kardashians account for their misconduct in a court of law. I also welcome the examination of any so called evidence to determine whether it was fraudulently obtained or whether it constitutes a forgery."

If Sonja handed over a personal or business credit card to KK, and there were charges during 2004 and 2005, for more than one (and only one) item, and Sonja accepted any items over the number of 1 or did not refute any of the charges, and there was no written contract, she ought to have to pay the bills out of stupidity. This is going to come down to a she said, she said situation, but in the end... Sonja gave Kim the credit card. Sonja Norwood has good business experience and knows better than hand someone a credit card and let them keep it. My real question is this... at what point in time was Kim seriously involved with Ray J? And when did that relationship end? My guess is just about the time Sonja wanted her credit card back.

The Kardashians are, of course, trash but she's lying. Or else she's the most pig ignorant woman who ever was.

someone felt sorrow for bruce jenner. why? he looks like an old lesbian, has allowed his own children to be known as kardashians, has the whore mother act as his "agent" and have his only job as a judge on a dog talent show. actually, that is quite fitting.

Brandy needs to just accept the fact that she's a has been who lacks the common sense to cancel a credit card with that much in unauthorized purchases. $120k is the going rate for dumbass.

Only an idiot would give their credit card to another person to use. As for any of the kardasian's....disgusting! And Bruce Jenner made 2 kids with Kris, the Queen of the Lowlife Kardashians? Idiots all of them! To the owner of the beefed up credit card...chalk it up to your stupidity and learn from it.

Give me a break, this started in 2004 and Kim was supposedly still using the card in 2007? You're telling me in 3 YEARS this woman didn't cancel her credit card or have Kim arrested? I think Brandy and her family are all washed up and now trying to get some money out of Kim and her family.

Brandy's face has always freaked me out. It doesn't help that she exaggerates it by opening her eyes and mouth even WIDER when she sees a camera. Oh, and I agree those Kardashians are trash. The mother's their pimp.

for one it's hard to be on anyone's side when the people reporting are tmz. so there for we don't even have the whole story. and by the way brandy is not broke. for those of you who think so. just because a celeb doesn't come out with new material does not mean they are broke. moesha still comes on in syndication everyday. also even though i am not a huge fan of brandy's or her brother they are far from broke. the people on here that think that she is in trouble financially probably don't have much yourself. and last as far as the credit card i don't see to many people letting someone keep their credit card that long and not say anything. it seems kind of fishy to me also
