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."

Brandy's eyes are far apart because it is a part of her genetics. She looks like she has some East Asian ancestry.

I have seen the show and I really feel sorry for Bruce. To have a scheming wife like Cris. Is she supposed to be the "modern day Lucille Ball" with her many schemes? Her older daughters are grown, but what about the 2 youngest?? One was hiding a puppy from Bruce, when he forbade her to have it (and Cris went against Bruce's wishes). Maybe Bruce SHOULD HAVE TAKEN UP WITH THE YOUNG NANNY PORTRAYED.. And Cris tried with success to prevent one of her daughters from getting married. Let her make her own mistakes, Cris.... That's all I have to say (for now....) Have a good night, everyone!! How is Dannielynn doing?

No-One gives a Hooker a credit card to use even once. Does anyone think that hooker Kim K has any discipline or ethics?
Stupid mistake Sonja You weren't dealing with ethical or moral people.

Another stupid story by TMZ's uneducated chimpanzees    

This article proves 2 things:

1) TMZ writers are idiots. She didn't cancel the card because she didn't know it was being illegally used by the karTRASHians. Stars typically have their bills sent directly to their accountant/biz manager, who pays them directly. The karTRASHian theft was probably picked up on an audit of her statements.

2) The karTRASHians are thieves & morons. They steal; gee what a shocker. Given what a whore little miss fake tities kim is, it shouldn't shock anyone. They're MORONS, because they ran up the stolen credit card balance IN THEIR OWN STORE. I guess being mental midgets like kim the whore runs in the family...

$120,600 is just about enough money to buy big assed Hanes granny panties for the ugly chiek with the huge ass.
Sonja should consider it an investment or charity to help cover up that ASSSSSSSS.
Just kidding, Hopes she sues the Crap out of this Hooker and her family.

So, Sonja is saying that she gave Kim this card to use in 2004, and two and three years later they still have the card and it is still active. Sounds like a gift to me.

Please check out the Jillian Reynolds link to all this. She always says that Kim is her best friend, yet whenever Kim has any controversy she shuts up and acts like she doesn't know her.

How come it took her that long to find out about the charges and do something about it?

Regardless, it was pretty classless of the KardASSians to keep using the card, and at their own store???!!!! They obviously knew that the jig would be up sometime, but that didn't stop them from spending and spending -- not only classless, they are clueless.
