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."

The Whoredashians are a bunch of sluts! That whore Kim is so trashy and has no class. I hope she pays back whatever she spend on the card.

I know    

Why do we as Americans accept these "trashy" celebrities? Don't we know our power.

Just like they forced themselves into the spotlight, se can FORCE them out. Somebodies watching their show keeping them alive.

Wouldn't it be nice to show strength and regain some control over what we are feed in the media?

Let's make this trash "DIE AWAY", now that would make us a strong nation again, now we are "force feed" celebrities, it's as if they say "It doesn't matter if you want me to be celebrity or not, I will make it anyway", then we buy into the hype due to curiosity all the while lining their pockets. NOT GOOD AMERICA.

I hate hate HATE those HAIRY Kardashian girls. But I understand those high charges. Do you have ANY idea how much wax it takes to keep those freaks semi-smooth? They get 5:00 shadows every day on their backs alone.

Shame on Sonja Norwood for not keeping a tighter lid on her finances. If someone charged over $100K on my AMEX I'd be on them like no ones business. How can she let this just slide on by? I have a feeling that this is the K girls are going to slide out without so much as a slap on the wrist.

Is Brandy part Chinese or Japanese? She was never beautiful and gets uglier as she gets older. She and her brother have very little talent but somehow manage to stay in the news.

In order for the card to be active over a two (or longer) period, someone had to make payments to AMEX. So, it would appear that Sonja ALLOWED the card to be used with the understanding that the Ks make payments. She claims only one purchase, but it looks like Kimmie wanted revenge. Bottom line: does not add up, especially when the card could have easily been cancelled and the charges disputed. Verdict to the K's....

Most women are very jealous of Kim because she is very appealing sexually to men. She is sexy and alluring and has a nice ass. Just because she made a tape doesn't mean she's a slut. Her mistake was making the tape with that no talented, low life Ray J. In the privacy of the bedroom many couples make tapes and photos. I have done it with my girl and she is definitely not a slut. Humans are turned on by watching sex and that's that! It doesn't mean that someone's a slut. There are so many women on this site who are haters because they simply are not as beautiful as Kim and men do not give them the attention that she gets. People say all these nasty things about her and don't even know her and will never talk to her or see her in their lives and have no idea what kind of person she really is.

There is obviously more to this story. Nobody is going to simply let somebody charge that kind of money and they wait until now to do something about it. This story has been changed to make the kardashians look like thieves. The press manipulates these stories and the American public is so gullibel that they'll believe anything.
