The Kardashians are being accused of causing $75 million in debit card damages, but it’s not due to their extravagant lifestyle, like one might think.
The Kardashian women are being accused of causing $75 million in debit card damages, but it’s not due to their somewhat extravagant lifestyle, like one might think.
Khloe, Kim, Kourtney and mom Kris are being sued for breach of contract by The Revenue Resource Group, LLC. According to the lawsuit, the ladies withdrew from their agreement to allow their likeness to be used to promote their Master Card-branded debit card.
The exorbitant fees associated with the card caught the attention of Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and is believed to be the reason why the Kardashians’ separated from the partnership.
Attorney General Blumenthal warned that the card could raise "considerable ethical, and perhaps legal, questions under Connecticut’s consumer laws," according to the New York Daily News.
The Kardashians’ lawyer released this statement: "The Kardashians have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona that appeals to everyone, particularly young adults. Unfortunately, the negative spotlight turned on the Kardashians as a result of the Attorney General’s comments and actions threatens everything for which they have worked."
Scott Rudd, the attorney for The Revenue Resource Group, said that the company went out of business, in part because of the Kardashians’ actions.
