Kardashian Fam

Prepping to SUE Over

Bogus Slave Labor Report

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

1221_kardashian_sisters_ex
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.

That's what you get for claiming an assumption is a fact. This'll be an easy defamation of character suit

What weight class do think Khloe wrestles in? I'm thinking super-heavyweight after seeing the picture above.

By the way... the Kardashians are public figures. Therefore malice must be proven to win any defamation suit against them. There's no malice here in this case.

What a piece of work this family is. It just shows what s***bag greedy people they are when they are trying to deflect the fact that they won't use american workers. This holiday season I will be telling as many people about these low life greedy unamerican people.

These stupid wannabe A list trashy people need to just go away. They think they are royalty but in fact they are just ugly and dumb people who got famous because one of the sluts made a porn tape. Real classy! With the exception of the Jenners, this family is disgusting! Their clothes are cheaply constructed because their fans their stupid fans don't know any better. YUCK! All they care about is money but too bad it doesn't buy them class. How pathetic for Kris Jenner to be in the public eye knowing her vvhore daughter has a gross sex tape out- if that were my daughter, I would be absolutely embarrassed. Horrible people. And Hollywood Reporter, shame on you for giving these D listers any attention, especially that pornstar Kim kardashian.

Be careful what you sue for....it is easier for these publications to do the research to back up their claim, then for you to get all the kids out of the factories. Just ask Kathy Lee.....

Money can get you out of anything. DO NOT SUPPORT THEM WITH YOUR MONEY. I notice most sites of removed the story; also probably threatened with a lawsuit. It's not rocket science. MONEY TALKS. People shut up. The Kardashians are pathetic. Hell, even Perez won't allow comments for them at times. Paid to shut up eh Perez? I would bet so.

These despicable people are just as bad the the Lohan's, who if I remember sue anyone who disparages their name. If you don't want the publicity then go away and that will fix it once and for all, and will make this world a better place. You exist just like a Hilton, a Lohan or any other faux celebrity you think you have attained. You have contributed nothing to making the world a better place other than vanity run-amouck! In Lohans defense with all of her court-appearances that should help you on how to deal with the law once you all start breaking it, it is coming this 'train-ride' your on will not last forever - nothing in Hollywood and faux-celebrity land ever does! And we can Thank God For That!
