Kardashians Sued for Ginormous Debit Card Loss

1/8/2011 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Kardashian women -- Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Kris -- are accused of causing more than $75 million in debit card damage ... and they never pulled a single card out of their wallets.

The Revenue Resource Group, LLC filed a lawsuit in Fresno, CA claiming the Kardashians breached their contract when they pulled out of a deal to be the faces of a controversial MasterCard-approved prepaid debit card.

As we previously reported, the K-ladies claimed they quit the deal because they had no idea the card was loaded with hidden, possibly illegal fees ... fees that caused the Attorney General of Connecticut to open an investigation into the card.

Revenue Resource Group claims the sisters signed a two-year deal that they should have honored -- and since the fam backed out, RRG has been crushed by a wave of bad publicity.

RRG wants the women to fork over more than $75 mil to make things right.

So far, no comment from the Kardashians.

You can trust this is a deal made by Kris. She sells out these girls at every single turn and I don't believe she turns down much when it comes to putting the Kardashian name on something/anything. She pushes everything on her girls because if anyone is greedy, it's Kris Jenner. Hell, she's even pushing her young daughters out in the spotlight, all in the name of the mighty dollar.
She is the worst kind of stage mother.

They did the right thing to back out but not the legal correct thing. Don't think they will get 75 million but will have to return what they have already been paid. How else was the debit card company going to pay the K's if they did not charge a fee for the card.

Those Kardashians sure are pretty to look at, and they seem to have some marketing expertise, but man do they act stupid in public. Why do they demean themselves so? Don't they know they are role models to little girls everywhere in the world? Oh well, I'll just have to take rips off teh bong and post up some stuff at weedyelp.com

LMAO and then ROFLMAO. It's too bad the 75 million didn't go to more worthy recipients (but everyone would have an opinion on that I guess) but at least it came from the pockets of some real douchebags.

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm sick of these folks. Why are they even in the media? Never heard of Kardashians til their father was on the OJ Simpson trial. And that's old news. Go away, girls you are just embarassing.

I'm torn on this.

On one hand, I have absolutely no love for the Kardashians. I think they're overrated, overhyped, and overblown as "celebrities".

However, I applaud them for backing out of this deal. The card was clearly aimed at their underage fanbase and could've destroyed the credit of millions of teens with hidden fees. If any of the fees actually were illegal, then they had even MORE reason for backing out and RRG should be convicted for their crimes.

I don't get why some of you say the Kardashians "got what they deserved" though then go on to say that their lawyers should have known better. Had their lawyers been involved in contract negotiations - and they almost certainly had to be - then it isn't their fault for listening to them because that's what they PAY them for. If anything, their lawyers should be blamed for not looking out for their clients' best interests or doing the necessary research on the product they were contracted to shill.

Honestly, I don't see how this is the Kardashian's fault. Judging from what little we know of the story they were totally in the right. No one should be forced to honor a deceptive - and possibly downright illegal- contract.

I can't believe I'm actually rooting for the Ks for once. First time for everything I suppose.

lmfao    

So much to say, I read every comment and I am laughing my effin a** off right now. First, if the credit card company did do anything illegal then they will not have to pay nothing to no one and will look like hero's for backing out at all costs to "save" their fans. However, I am almost sure the meeting went like this.. Kardasians you stand to gain a fortune from going into ventures with us..you will recieve x amount of $95 per card per person..blah blah blah and $$$ in the eyes they agree'd.

I almost died when Kim told the story about whoever flicking robs penis to "see what would happen" when he was a baby THAT IS CHILD MOLESTATION and if you dont see it that way your a freakin perve yourself. Khole is always sexually taunting and flaunting with rob and hmm Mason looks like ROB so much and not like scott one bit... keep it in the family much kourtney and rob?? Is Mason Rob's Dad??? Now thats a headline I would like to see on a magazine I would buy that in a instant.. Maybe instead of all this glitz & glamour about the kardashians how about some truth for once.

Why do they call mom Kris.. isnt THAT WEIRD??? who calls their parent by their first name?? I dont know but I DO watch the show and watch every single episode so who am I to bxtch?? Oh I know, I am a fan who they get my ratings so I guess I CAN bxtch because they get paid cuz of me!!! lol

I am glad the majority of people on here are not followers and see the weird sexual world of the kardashians.. but on the other hand, making a Brand and marketing it to its fullest potential is what any SMART person would do because 15 minutes only last so long and they are grabbing every opportunity they can until it dries out.. do you blame them..i dont because I would do the same.. I DO blame them for being dirty money grubbing pigs.. you can go after your dreams, market a brand and make millions without SCREWING people.. literally and figativly!!! I know i spelled that wrong.. i suck.. what do u want from me!!! lol.. I loved everyones comment!!! keep on coming!!

"You go girls!!! Nobody needs a lying thieving credit card company. There's enough of them out there already. You don't owe those pricks a thing. Hang tough Kardashians. You are in the right."

Are you retarded? They used their celebrity status to engage in a predatory, evil debit card scheme and "they are right?"

What you've just said... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

It would be just deserts for their unwavering greed.

Unfortunately, The Revenue Resource Group can not prove they were harmed by the K's pull out. The opposite however - that the K's reputation was harmed by this scam - sorry! credit card is easily proven.
