Kim Kardashian Goes Nuclear on Writer Who Claimed She Faked Her Robbery

The reality star put her foot down.

Published October 21, 2016

Kim Kardashian may have gone off the radar since she was robbed at gunpoint nearly three weeks ago, but her lawyers haven't.

The reality star is gunning for a contributing writer to the Huffington Post after the scribe wrote and published a story claiming Kim's Paris robbery was all orchestrated for publicity.

According to TMZ, Kim's attorneys penned a legal letter demanding the writer, Sharika Soal, publish a retraction and an apology for her post, published on October 8, which even quoted Kim as saying the incident was a "publicity stunt gone horribly wrong."

Addressing the quote, Kim said it's completely made up, with her lawyers adding that it was actually pulled from a satirical website.

Speaking with TMZ, Soal says she can't fulfil Kim's requests as the Huffington Post has blocked her out of her account, making it impossible for her to post a retraction. She said she has, instead, explained everything to Kim's attorneys. Soal also said that she's got nothing to give Kim if she sues.

The publication also said that they have no involvement in this as Kim's beef is with Soal and not them. They also went ahead and pulled the story, which was self-published by Soal.
