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."

Now you know who's going to win not with justice. Kim K and company will win because she's pretty and popular. Brandy's mom is considered mom of a murderer.

Hey, Kelli, don't worry about the trolls. They say the same things about everyone and use the same language. They can't mimic anyone competently.

Guess Brandy's mama is going to need the cash when her reckless-driving killer daughter loses all of hers when she gets smacked down with the civil suit at the end of the day.

This is sooo funny I am on the floor and unable to keep my Top Ramen down.

If Kim could make good porn, they would all be rich now but she was just a life-less fat whore in that tape.

Kim needs to seek help over her addiction to the black snake, and the Brandy family needs to hide the money they still have: ASAP!!!

Oh puuuhleeeeze...after all this time she wants to bring up a suit. She is as crazy as Brandy's spaced out eyes! Then again, she probably needs the cash to help Brandy get her eyes fixed or for Brandy's Lawyer fees. Leave the Kardashian's alone. The kardashians are beautiful people.

Slut, whore and now, thief. The whole family is a bunch of whore dogs, and they learned from their Mama. I feel sorry for Bruce Jenner, she's surrounded by a bunch of TRASHY women, including those two little girl. Sure, make fun of Brandy's appearance, does that make you feel better, You whore-dog douchebags. I was wondering when you'd hit the news, cause one of the first readers pegged it perfectly. You are NAAAASTY, Yuck.

My only question about this whole "article" is why is Brandy's name thrown in the middle of it? This is between her mother and Kim K. The poll question asking whose side are you on, "Brandy or Kim K." is irrelevant and misleading. Leave Brandy out of it. Oh, I forgot, if you didn't put Brandy's name in it, no one would give a crap. Just remember this the next time someone misrepresents you or your families. You have brought this bad karma on yourselves, TMZ.

"Brandy's Ma to Kim K: You Screwed My Girl, Too"

Hey Sonja do you remember this headline


"Brandy Kills Woman With Wreckless Driving"


I say $120,635.65 is a very small sum compared to the $50 mil, you will have to come up with for Brandy's Lead Killing Foot! Hey kim just charged a few things (hahahahahahahaha), Brandy took a wife, mother, daughter's life and that is much more than some fine woman helping herself to a card you never remembered to get back and somehow forgot to check your statment or cancel the card. If you have accountants..then maybe you should sue them for not protecting your interest...lord knows you'd sue mcdonalds if you could find a reason....need to save up for that fat settlement Brandy will have to pay.

A store clerk kept my AMEX gold card overnight 10 years ago and promptly ran up $3,000.00 worth of CRAP purchases. Granted, $3,000.00 doesn't even come CLOSE to the amount the K's blew thru, but - even though I tracked down receipts, filed charges with the police dept., got a store to promise to give their copy of a video tape showing the person using the card & signing my name, AMEX didn't bother to prosecute... and if Brandy's mom never filed a police report (likely, since she authorized the use of her card - strictly against the rules of the AMEX contract) she doesn't have a legal leg to stand on regarding having "fraudulent" charges removed. So, a personal fraud suit is her only hope. But good luck with that in LA - the celebrities are in charge there, and Brandy has already caught her major break for the year, with no charges filed in that auto crash on the freeway... so the K's will walk.
