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."

..oh, I almost forgot, Kim also used to have an ebay account where she used to sell thousands of dollars of designer stuff she got out of Paris's or whomever's closets she would "organize" ... like I remember seeing listing for a bunch of size 11 shoes before... it was too funny. I think when people caught on, she cut that out... seems she found a new way to suppliment herself though. ...oh and while I am at it, her older sister, (the smaller one's) boyfriend Scott, is a real freako, he would have sex with TONS of girls and video tape them secretly. He has a massive stash. He is really huge, and would get the girls all drunk and pop viagra and do them for hours until they could not take it anymore, all while videoing them. freaky! ..i saw some of the tapes too!

seriously    

The K girls are trashy but they have money of their own to blow. Daddy K was loaded and Step Dad Bruce has a few g's of his own. Why would they want Brandy's moms money? Speaking of how the hell does her mom have the money to afford that? Brandy hasn't had a hit(that wasn't a person) in years and Ray J is only famous for doing Kim K.

Gotta love it. What I want to know is: WHY wasn't Brandy prosecuted for that fatal car wreck where SHE REAR ENDED SOMEONE????

These "stars" all think their money can buy others peoples lives. They think they're above the law....and actually they are.

Who really cares? Do you for one second think ANY of these "stars" give one fleeting thought about you or your heartache or troubles? NO.

These people are losers. I watched a couple episodes of their E show and I can't believe what low-lifes they are. Robert Kardashian was the only decent person in the family. And for Bruce Jenner to marry into that bunch of hookers is beyond believable.

wow. again. seriously    

this is a strange case. I am gonna get hell for this, but I totally watched that show "keeping up with the kardashians." It was on late when nothing else was on, that is my story and i am sticking to it. If kim did do it, they should be able to find out. If brandy's mama is full of it, they'll find that out, too. I didn't know kim was a stylist. Guess, not a very good one? I read on some website that reviewed their store Dash and one girl said she went there and it looked like all the clothes had been worn then put back on the hangers as new. I can totally see them doing that. But, why would you commit cc fraud? It could be mama brandy over-extended herself. (how long ago was "I wanna be down?"). I wonder how cc fraud works? Meaning, do you have to prove a certain person did it in order to recover, or would just creating a posibility that it could've happened mean you won't be held responsible? I don't know.

Both sides involved are lame. The Kardashians and Brandy's family ZZZZZZ...who cares. When is the last time Brandy had a hit? ? Her brother Ray J is so freakin lame, he had one hit a long time ago. Big deal. Kim Kardashian is just good for nothing...just a ho-bag.

Wow. Most of your comments are truly lame. The ACCIDENT that Brandy was involved in was just that an accident and it was revealed that the woman who died had been smoking marijuana. She, not Brandy, caused the accident. If I were Brandy I would fight the Civil Suit and never settle. It is the principle of the matter. And I read the complaint and it seems quite plausible that it happened that way. As the victim of identity theft and cc fraud, it takes a very long time to sort it all out and investigate. She probably never gave Kim K the card, but only the number to charge an outfit. I charge things for my boss all the time. Some of you are mean and hateful and need to get a life. I am done!
