Kim Kardashian threatens slander lawsuit
Kim Kardashian is usually the one creating media splashes. Well now, NE Patriots safety Brett Lockett is trying to step into her spotlight. He is trying to establish a music career on Kim’s back. He told TMZ yesterday that he had a five month affair with the starlet. He also claimed that they “sexted” and she even sent a naked photo of her to him. Kim didn’t waste any time, and had her lawyer draft a letter to him and various publications. Kim warned In Touch magazine before they printed the slanderous article. Kim is enraged and engaged to NJ Nets Kris Humphries. Check it out!
“To put it very plainly and clearly, and as Mr. Lockett knows, there is not now, and never has been such a relationship,” said Kardashian’s attorney Michael Kump, adding, “Ms. Kardashian does not know and has never even met Mr. Lockett.”
In a letter sent to Lockett, and published by TMZ, Kardashian demands an apology and a retraction of the statements by Lockett, saying the claims are “an attempt to garner publicity, including to promote his musical aspirations.”
The attorney’s letter demands Lockett, “immediately cease and desist from making, giving, publishing, disseminating, and/or distributing any and all further statements, remarks or comments regarding Ms. Kardashian and any purported relationship between Mr. Lockett and Ms. Kardashian.”
Kardashian’s lawyers had earlier demanded In Touch not publish the story, warning that if they did, it would be at their “legal risk and peril.”
In Touch apparently ignored the letter and Wednesday published a cover story with the headline, “STOP THE WEDDING! KIM CAUGHT CHEATING!”
Shortly after the article was published, Kardashian wrote a post on her Celebuzz blog claiming Lockett was making it all up.
“This guy should be ashamed of himself. Calling up a magazine and making up an entirely fake story in a sad attempt to ruin my relationship!?!?! It’s just shameful and this guy should feel ashamed and humiliated,” she wrote.
“Is this your pathetic attempt for attention? I’ll be damned if anyone, especially some loser I’ve never even met, is going to try to come between Kris and I.”
In an interview with NESN.com published Wednesday, Lockett insisted the magazine article was true.
“I’m saying the story in the tabloid is true, and that my relationship with Kim is true as well,” Lockett said. (courtesy foxsports)
