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."

So she claims to have a confidentiality agreement that forever bars him from expressing his opinion on anything she does at any time forever and ever? She must have had an amazing lawyer draw that one up. As for his claim that he has an unsigned agreement, give me a minute, I'll print up an unsigned agreement too. Duh.

My mama always said "If it isn't true there is no reason to address it" Again, this is all about money. Besides that, who even believes her? I hope he writes a tell all it would be a best seller. That is one thing of hers we WOULD buy!

Kris Jenner said she couldn't warn KK about getting married so quickly because she married Bruce 4 months after meeting him. Wise Thought From Kris Jenner: You can't tell your kids not to do something that you have done. She should write a parenting book.

I can understand she wants him to stop talking, but asking for $200K is where she lost credibility (if she ever had any). Also, if that confidentiality agreement was never signed, it's not a contract.

It is unfortunate that Kim and her family refuse to accept the accountability that they all have hurt their own reputations. It is not this individual's fault.

Kind of sick how they posture with lawyers all the time, as if they think they can get people to stop having a negative opinion about Kim and her family.

Unfortunately Kim and her family did this to themselves, they got so wrapped up into the superficial, money and fame, that they lost direction of what is meaningful in life.

They made a wedding, vows and a marriage into a joke. They could instead use their platform and money in the public to do good and be a positive influence in the minds of youth today, instead of feeding the minds with empty, superficial, self absorbed behavior.

The entitlement needs to stop and reality needs to be faced. What is real and their own reality now, is what a joke they have made of their entire Kardashian family.

People no longer are buying what they are selling and see that they are entertaining the devil with their histrionics, melodrama and worshiping of money and fame, at the price of selling their souls to the devil.

People will have an opinion when they see a family spiraling out of control and being consumed by the materialism and unhealthy sense of entitlement.

Pull out the lawyers, posture away, but you can not run from the truth.

Using this guy as their scapegoat, instead of facing the fact that every one of the Kardashians have ruined their reputations (choosing to do so publicly).

Hard pill to swallow, but you cannot blame anyone but yourselves for where you placed yourselves today.

If the things he's saying aren't true how is he violating the confidentiality agreement?


Anyway, I already thought she was no-talent skank mannequin face, her wedding farce hasn't changed my perception at all.

Kris Jenner is being called out by the sister of Nicole Brown Simpson for lying and trying to profit off of Nicole's death.

Kris was willing to do anything to sell her new memoir, whether it's talking about Kim Kardashian's divorce during interviews or dishing about how she cheated on her late ex-hubby Robert Kardashian with a producer named Ryan (it's a little weird that another producer named Ryan helped make her family famous).

From the excerpts that have hit the web so far, it's also obvious that she was very willing to dish out the dirt on herself in her new book. However, she should have been more careful writing about other people - she went a little too far by lying and trying to profit off of the death of one of her pals.

In her book, Kris Jenner claims that Nicole's sister Denise Brown called her the day after Nicole was found murdered to ask her about some photos that Nicole kept in a safety deposit box.

Nicole Brown Simpson had taken the photos in question to do***ent how O.J. Simpson had abused her. However, Denise claims that she didn't even know about their existence until O.J.'s trial, and even if she had known about them, she says that the last thing on her mind when she found out that her sister had been murdered would have been to call Kris Jenner to ask about them.

It's got to be extremely tough for Nicole's family to have to deal with their daughter's horrible death being brought up again, especially since Kris Jenner is using it to sell her book. In the memoir Kris certainly plays up her part in Nicole's life -- in addition to claiming that Nicole Brown Simpson took the photos so that Kris could be a witness to her abuse, the momager claims that she could have saved Nicole from being murdered.

Denise has called Kris "pathetic" and says that she's upset that she has "split open the healing wounds" of Nicole's family in order to profit.

To be fair, Nicole was one of Kris' friends, and Robert Kardashian was one of O.J. Simpson's attorneys. So since these people were a part of her life, it's not surprising that they make an appearance in the memoir. However, Kris went too far by lying about the photos and by claiming that she could have saved Nicole -- if this is the case, then Denise should really be angry with Kris for ignoring her sister's cry for help. Plus it seems that Kris proved then and now just how good of a friend she was to Nicole - first she let her down by not helping her in her time of need, and now she's using her grisly demise to sell her book and rake in more money that she doesn't need or deserve.

The only reason she got married in the first place was that she was upstaged by her lumberjack sister and she wasn't going to have it.


If I'm not mistaken she was even quoted as saying she was going to have an even bigger wedding.
