Kim Kardashian

Unleashing Heavyweight Lawyer

To Silence PR Flack

11/13/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113_kim_kardashian_new3Kim Kardashian is finally firing back at the guy who has been making claims her wedding was a sham -- by hiring legal pit bull Marty Singer to put a muzzle on him ... TMZ has learned. 

A guy by the name of Jonathan Jaxson has been doing a media tour to promote his book (coincidence?) and saying Kim never wanted to marry Kris Humphries and her wedding was all staged.

Jaxson claims he knows this because he did PR work for her, but a source close to Kim tells us they worked together once, years ago, on a blog ... and that Kim barely remembers who he is.

We're told Kim is particularly baffled how Jaxson can talk about Kim's wedding plans ... when she hasn't spoken to him in years.

But as part of their brief time together, we're told Kim had Jaxson sign a confidentiality agreement -- which Kim clearly feels he's violating now. Kim has now hired Marty Singer, who submitted papers to a private arbitration to attempt to shut Jaxson up immediately.

KK is claiming Jaxson has damaged her reputation with his allegedly defamatory statements and she wants a minimum of $200,000 in damages.

Singer tells TMZ, "Everything that he is saying is false and nonsense ... This guy is in it to promote himself for his 15 mins of fame."

When contacted, Jonathan Jaxson told us, "I have never signed an agreement dealing with confidentiality with Kim Kardashian.  I have an agreement in my possession that does not have either parties signature on it."

LMAO @ her trying to save her rep by suddenly fighting back - KIM YOU ARE FAMOUS BECAUSE YOU GOT PISSED ON IN A TAPE - WHICH IS MORE DEFAMATORY - GETTING PISSED ON OR SOMEONE SPREADING A RUMOR ABOUT YOU!? Only YOU would say a rumor. IDIOT.

Actually, we all thought you were full of crap before he opened his mouth. Also, pretty hard to damage the reputation of someone who is only famous for having a big ass and a sex tape.

Let's take a moment and step back in TMZ history. Funny how just shortly after the wedding, TMZ blow the cover off a botched segment in which producers were caught scripting a scene between Courtney and Scott leading us to beleive they were the next couple to head to the alter. It has been reported that attendees of neputials felt very awkward by the presence of cameras stating that all behaviors were geared toward making a great "wedding special". Too say the wedding was not driven by financial gain is foolish. I am insulted that the Kardashians think the public is stupid enough to believe otherwise. Kim, by the fact that you are going so much out off your way to hire lawyers and PR damage control reps makes you seem guilty of something. I find it ironic that the more the public outcrys for less Kardashians, the more they get in publics face in fear of losing their "star power". It only strengthens the case they are in it for the fame, fortune and attention....I will no longer support this farce and I hope the public follows closely behind!

I heard Mr. Jaxson's interview and he never spoke about her wedding, he just simply stated what we already knew. How Kim K. staged incidents for publicity more specific her staging Reggie Bush's proposal. He said that he worked for the Kardashian Klan when the sex tape came out and hasn't worked for them since i believe 2009/2010.

IF this guy worked for her soooo long ago that Kim can't recall him but because of that long ago work, a confideniality agreement was signed, why would that play any part now? Agreement was for past services, right? Or does this guy actually have something that could blow her damage control system right out of the water? Either way, Kim the game has to stop, even the blind see through this one.

If Kim is going to sue everyone who knows her wedding wasn't anything more than a PUBLICITY STUNT, she'll be in court 24/7 for the rest of her life. How about a reality show showing the whole family die slowly from a raging case syphilis? I'd watch and I bet the ratings would be over the top!

Kim proved on the family VACA that she is very whinny and spoiled(Who wears 10,000 dollar diamond earring in the ocean?)Chris is way to opinionated for that family I knew it wouldn't work,Poor Scott and Bruce they can't speak any thing unless Kris Jenner says so, I think it's time to end the show girls and have a family at peace.....

If she "barely remembers him" why does she have an "alleged" confidentiality agreement? Where is it? People talk about her all the time....she has built a career out of getting people to talk about her - why is she suing HIM? Most likely because he is legit and all the others aren't. I see it as just yet another opportunity to get her name in the tabloids and grab some cash. That is their empires mission statement after all, isn't it?

First of all, it's totally ridiculous for ANYONE to have such little time getting to know each other and get married. Then to 'claim' that you "married for love" and contradict that by filing for divorce after only 72 days...."Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." Love is supposed to be unconditional. Kim's lavish wedding is boastful at the very least...just a 'look at how glamorous and rich I am' way of showing how materialistic she is. When Kris proposed to her on 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', all she did was stare at the engagement ring and show how shallow she is. She didn't seem happy that the man she is supposed to be so in love with was proposing....all she cared about was how big and expensive the rock on her finger was. If you truly love someone, you would want to do anything to make your marriage work. Kim, you should be ashamed of yourself! And isn't it a coincidence that your Mom's book came out at the same time as you filing for divorce? Yeah....just a way of Mommy distracting attention from her spoiled brat of a daughter and to make even more money. You all make me sick!

They are closing the door after the horse got out of the barn! No one believes anything Kim says or her pimp mother Kris. Everything about their life is a phony scripted set up. Now it is time to pay the piper! The public is done with the Kardashians. I don't know one person that has anything positive to say about this greedy disgusting family!
