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."

Because TMZ has censored t_-w-_-a-_t (symbols are the only way to get through it). I would use that view instead as Lin suggested.

KK ruined her "reputation" all by herself. Can't expect much from a cat's ass hairball.

"Damaged her reputation". You've got to be shiatting me. This from a woman who did a sex tape with that ugly as hell Ray J., allowed him to wizz on her, staged a fake wedding and marriage and refuses give her ex husband back his engagement ring. At this point, this person could not sink much lower.

I used to think Kim was pretty but then I saw that sex tape with Ray J...ugh... all I can say is BARF. This woman has no class, no taste, and no self esteem. No wonder Reggie Bush booked outta there.

Jonathan Jaxson didn't damaged your reputation you did it to yourself. Jonathan Jaxson did NOT participated in the porn video with Ray j, nor posed for playboy you did. Anyone that does this has no respect for themselves, and wants attention. No one but YOU damaged your own reputation. We all know that wedding was a sham.

LMAO! Funny how she's asking for the same amount of money she claims she's donating to her favorite charity on behalf of all the gifts they received for the so called "real wedding". Things that make you go hmmm....

Kim K and Kris Jenner need to be investigated for perpetrating a fraud. They acted like grifters of the first order - their greed this time exposing them. And if anyone thinks these things are done on the spur of the moment, its ridiculous. The PAPER TRAIL on these two relative to this "wedding" must be enormously lengthy. Contracts galore. Plans galore. The fact they "forgot" the entire Humphries family when it came to cars for the wedding is telling enough. But then there is the cross promotion of Kim K doing a line of wedding dresses for Vera Wang. And what better "credibility" to hawk them than to have worn one? But even that sort of BUSINESS VENTURE would take weeks, months, maybe even a year to hammer out. Same with the entire grifter wedding. It was WEEKS prior when Kim K and Kris Jenner scammed their guests into a particular gift registry. And as we all see, those were treated like CASH PRIZES even after the willful divorce. The vendors and PEOPLE magazine deals, etc all must have lots of PAPER WORK attached describing WHO did what and WHO wanted what.

Kim K acts like an emotional adolescent. But she is a 31 YEAR OLD WOMAN. She is responsible for her actions - in cahoots with her manager mother Kris Jenner.

Lindsay Lohan's life is made a misery over some over-priced $1800 necklace? Winona Ryder has two felons in connection to some emotional problem she played out at a Saks store? And yet THESE TWO - Kim K and Kris Jenner think they can out-scam EVERYONE? This needs a real looking into on a legal - perhaps criminal - level.

the only person I feel bad for in this family is Bruce. His wife Kris is embarrassing, she should act like a wife and not a mother to him.

Dear Kim...no one wants 15 min of fame more than you. Interesting you want the same amount you promised to charity. You were suppose to go away for awhile...please do! We all already knew this marriage was a sham so there, sue me biotch. Boycott all things Kartrashian. And finally, You are just making people hate you more!

I m wondering if one day an IT technicien will confess that Kim paid him to open million accounts in twitter and make it automatic to followe her. I will not be surprised. Twitter made a lot of publicity for her and even make her a lot of money from ads, big serious media than talked about her and invited her, like CNN. I will not be surprised.

Kim, do you read these comments? If so, have you heard the expression, thou protests too much? Desperation makes you laughable and we do love it. Keep it up, it is way more entertaining than anything else you do. A lady knows when to step back and shut her mouth but oh that's right you are definitely not a lady. We so enjoy your payback I hope it never ends.

Just yesterday I looked at a emails between him & Kim and a video blog they did together, I even posted it on a few site, but it's gone today, WTF? This Jaxson guy posted the link on his twitter. It was very obvious she knew who he was, she even kissed him at the end of their video blog. (then again, no shocker there). The emails between Kim & Jaxson were about her staging an engagement w/that ring on. The "source" in this story is Jonathan Cheban, (family azz kisser) he even went to his twitter saying the guy is a "JOKE".
Looks like the joke is on Kim & Cheban because the emails looked totally legit AND the video was like Duhhhhh

It like the unknowed person, after her wedding, who want to buy her sextape for big money. I will not be surprised that it was a big publicity stunt to make, it worked, after that, a big name in the industry sign her to be a member of *****catdoll. Just saying, Kris Jenner is the mastermind.

This chick is hilarious. She’s worried about one guy referring to her 72 day fairy tale wedding by it’s publicly known name “a sham” when she can look anywhere on the web…a much larger forum than this unknown Jonathan could have every reached (well until “she” made him important) …and see her farce described as sham, scam, publicity stunt, etc. I suppose I should expect a “cease and desist” reply post any day now. ;^)
