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."

Coincidence that the amount she is seeking for "damages" is the same amount she is "donating" to cover the cost of the wedding gifts received? I think not. Gotta make that money back somehow I guess.

Not a damn thing the lawyer can do if the statements about her are true.
It is called the first amendment and no lawyer in the world can stop him from speaking up.
If the statements are false, then she has a leg to stand on...
Btw, we all know that he did NOT tarnish her reputation, she did that all on very own.

She instead ought to lawyer up for when they investigate Kim and Kris Jenner for committing a fraud for profit. Ho a D.A. doesn't look into these grifters for their obvious scam of the public, the media and vendors of million is the mystery. She and her mother are as obvious as any grifters in this one.

Wow, she really thinks people are that dumb .. ofcourse it was a sham. She married a guy she knew less than a year, she is so twitter obsessed but she never really tweeted her so called husband, the ring she will not give back because it was hers in the first place. Kris is on it too, I am sure he is. It's all a sham ...

Even her 2 months newlywed life was fake. She upgraded her standard for 2 months I mean she does not live in a house of 120 000 000 Dollars in New york and she does not use a helycotere. For me viewer it s not a reality show it s a fake one. She is costing us money from ADS even if we don t see the show and her production are bad scripted productions. She upgraded her life and we downgraded our standards.
