The Kardashians Sued for $75 Million
After backing out of their famewhorishly named “Kardashian Kard” back in November, Kim, Kourtney and Harry from Harry and the Hendersons are now being sued for $75 million in damages by Revenue Resource Group who claim the sisters essentially turned its lights off. E! News reports:
Consumers Union, which publishes Consumer Reports, dissed the card, and the Connecticut Attorney General’s Office demanded further disclosure from card issuer University National Bank, accusing the Kardashians of “marketing a dangerous financial fantasy.”
Not wanting to be linked to the alleged shadiness any further, the Kardashians’ attorney sent a notice of termination letter to RRG on Nov. 29. Consumer Union issued a statement applauding the move. And it seemed as if the controversy had blown over…
But not everyone was applauding.
“The company waited a month to file hoping this would work out. They didn’t want to sue,” RRG head attorney Scott Rudd tells E! News.
RRG “spent a great deal of time and effort securing the rights to use the Kardashian card,” Rudd says. “RRG is an independent sale organization, which gives it the right to market pre-paid debit card.” The Kardashians walking away has “effectively put this company out of business.”
As for the allegedly prohibitively high fees, Rudd says that the card fees “were in line with other debit cards.”
Look, I’m not going to sit here and pretend I know anything about credit card fees or interest rates. In fact, I spent several years convinced they were free money for being so handsome until American Express repossessed my grandmother. However, I can say with authority that the Kardashians are a walking gaggle of bullshit and anything that comes out of their mouths is a lie. I mean, a state called “Connecticut?” Ha! Nice try.
NOTE: This seemed appropriate and not just because it has two black dudes in it.
