Kardashian Fam

Prepping to SUE Over

Bogus Slave Labor Report

12/22/2011 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Kardashian family is preparing for war -- gearing up to unleash a legal attack on everyone who claimed their clothing line is manufactured in child slave labor sweat shops in China ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the family tell us ... Kris Jenner is furious -- claiming the guy who runs the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights had no right to accuse the Kardashian brands of wrongdoing because he has no tangible proof to back up his claims.

Kris must have seen I.G.L.H.R. honcho Charles Kernaghan on "TMZ Live" Wednesday -- when he flat out admitted he didn't actually go to the factories in question ... and is making the ASSUMPTION based on years of research on the Chinese manufacturing industry.

Jenner also believes Star Magazine's cover -- which screamed "Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal" -- was not only unfair ... but libelous ... and it should have to pay for any damage that has been caused to the brand's reputation.

As TMZ previously reported, Kris -- along with one of their manufacturing companies -- adamantly deny the use of child slave labor in their factories ... insisting they have people who are constantly patrolling for any possible violations.

Proper etiquette would dictate the return of all gifts to the givers,when a marriage immediately ends.Kim Kardashian greedily returned the gifts(to the store)and exchanged them for ROLEX watches!!Who does that? SO tacky and ill bred.What a grifter!The guests must have been utterly appalled at this low class breach.Her equally tacky parents allowed this raunchy behavior? What trashy people they are.

Boy, if you look at that picture long enough Khloe looks like Chewbacca from Star Wars and Kourtney looks like Dr Zira from Planet of the Apes. Kris Jenner has had so many facelifts she looks like a wx figure, Kim just looks like her usual unahappy self. When are they going away?

Most countries are aware of sweatshops in China but do not dare speak against the country. Let the Kardashians sue and see what China does to them. There was a convention whereby al the "BIG" labels gathered talking about "fakes" made by certain countries and China was not even mentioned.

If the HardKashdasians are really suing anyone who tries to "damage their reputation" they should start reading the comment threads on articles about them on TMZ. I think they will find a thousand reasons to sue. Let the suings begin!
