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."

I have absolutely no respect for Kim Kardashian and most of her family after that wedding scam. We were either duped that it was a fairy tale or it just went horribly wrong. If she knew she shouldn't have married him before she married him, she should have not gone through with it even if it would mess up the TV show.

Why can't these Kardashians just go away.... and why does TMZ think they're so iconic? Everyone of them are a bunch of talentless schleps and gossip ****... and are a part of the fall of civilization...

If all Kim wants is more fame (oh, well, and more money) then Jaxson is continuing to help her! And he hasn't said anything that is at all shocking or new. Everyone should be clear by now that "reality" TV isn't "real" (maybe unless it involves very young children who can't be as well controlled and rehearsed).

Kim just worried that her future earning power may be compromised, but I doubt that will happen. It didn't hurt Jessica Simpson to retire from TV and from singing, so even if Kim looses her show, which she probably won't, she'll still be rich enough to survive for the rest of her life without working another day.

She needs counseling but probably will never get it. After all, she's much too successful at achieving her goals to see herself as having any kind of problem. And if her future "husbands" and children are just accessories to her fame, she won't be the first person whose personal life comes in a distant second to making money.

the american people need to lawyer up and file a class action against the kardashians. They protray this as reality it is time they acknowledge nothing about this crap is reality but a staged mockery of the american public. She wants to talk about Kris and now this guy getting their 15 minutes of fame. This fame things 15 minutes are UP> What has she or her family done of value. Nothing but distroy it is time for them to go.

Wait... Wait... Jaxson damaged Kardashian's reputation? I would say 72 of "marriage" and a sex tape have done all that well enough. How could this tramp every need help.

Big whoop, she's asking for money again! Is that all she knows how to do?

Another point, Kris Jenner admitted to an affair around the time she had Khloe... explains why she's so massive and everyone else looks alike!

I hate to say it, but this plastic troll will never disappear. Sorry guys, but if any of you have teenage children, then its those kids that drive these ratings of their KarTRASHian shows. So please put a block on E! so that this family will just DIE already. Well with the exception of Rob. He seems to be the only normal in that family. Sorry Kimmie, you ruined your own rep the second you stepped out on that sham of a runner to walk down the isle. Like ur face, ass and boobs it was all FAKE!!

Can we hire a "legal pitbull attorney" to silence Kim Kartrashian and that idiotic nasal voice of hers? She should only blame herself for *ahem* "damaged" reputation. Why didn't she hire said pitbull attorney when her sex tape was "released without her permission?" Oh yeah, she helped orchestrate that little coup. She's nothing but a laughing stock now.

Wow that lawyer is going to be really busy if she is wanting to sue everyone who is saying her marriage was a sham out loud. Of course it was and I hope this guy wipes the floor with her. Guess we all know where they money for the charity is coming from what a surprise suing for the exact same amount. Can she get any more classless? These losers need to be dropped from E I can't believe anyone is going to be stupid enough to continue watching their stupid show. The whole thing is scripted and even that isn't done well. How are they going to ignore the divorce when they carried on so much about the wedding and then did a series with the newlyweds? The marriage ended before it even aired who is going to bother watching it? I guess laying low for one or two days was enough for her. She shot scenes for some pathetic movie so she must be holding up fine. I'm thinking if she is in it, it should go straight to DVD as she can't act and really shouldn't be in it in the first place. The whole Kardashian Klan needs to disappear for awhile they have made enough money too.

GOD GIRL, You are soo freekin STUPID. How could anyone damage your reputation, YOU are a TRAMP, a whore, a low life surgically created mess. You have no talent, no skills (other than being a true whore, a media whore, a pathetic excuse for a human, etc) who will do anything for money, including getting married and even making a porn tape for publicty. Shame on Marty Singer ( a classy lawyer) for representing a skank like you. Your reputation couldn't be any worse, so damaging it is a joke, just like you and your family. GO AWAY ALREADY The KrapTrashians are done.
