Last week, the company responsible for the Kardashians’ favorite waist trainers was hit with a lawsuit by a group of women claiming the waist trainers worked about as well as the muscles in Kim Kardashian’s face (which is to say, not very much). Well, the Kardashians are once again in trouble for their brand-whoring ways, but this time, it’s because they didn’t sell out hard enough. Damn, the Kardashians kan’t katch a product-pimping break!
The NY Daily News says that a company called Hillair Capital Management has filed a $180 million lawsuit against the trifecta of tacky, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, for fraud and breach of contract. Hillair Capitol is pissed off because they put $10.8 million into Kardashian Beauty (formerly Khroma Beauty), back in 2014 and haven’t seen a return on investment. Kardashian Beauty was in need of some financial help two years ago after their original distribution company went tits up. So Hillair promised to fund distribution on the condition that Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe keep promoting it. You know, like pretending they actually use it.
But according to Hillair’s lawsuit, the Kardashians weren’t happy with the amount of coins that were dropped in their beggin’ cups, and they started looking for other investors. Hillair claims Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe then forced Hillair into a buyout by withholding support of Kardashian Beauty. The lawsuit also accuses Khloe of talking shit about the brand at a 2015 beauty expo in Dubai, and slapped at Kim for putting her name on a lipstick for the far klassier makeup brand Charlotte Tilbury.
Hillair wants their $10.8 million investment back, as well as its interest in the company, which they value at being between $64 million and $180 million. A lawyer for Kamp Kardashian has called the lawsuit “a disgrace” and accuses them of spreading “lies.” They also blame Hillair’s mismanagement on why Kardashian Beauty is in the krapper.
Hillair doesn’t realize actually just how large of a bullet they dodged when those greedy opportunists stopped pimping out their khosmetics khompany. I mean, at least waist trainer selfies are somewhat easy to Photoshop. But you know they’d never be able to show such restraint when retouching their faces. So yes, they lost a bunch of money. But it’s nothing compared to the money they’d lose after millions of pissed-off customers hit them with a class-action lawsuit after discovering that Kardashian Beauty products don’t actually transform their faces into airbrushed cartoons.
