Kim Kardashian And Scott Disick Are Being Slapped With A $40 Million Lawsuit For Promoting Allegedly Scammy Instagram Lotteries

September 19, 2022 / Posted by:

The pandemic was an uncertain time for many when it came to working and finances, that is, unless you were a member of the Kardashian Koterie–they always stay grindin’, COVID be damned. Complex reports that Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick are being sued by a group of losing contestants of several Instagram lotteries they promoted in 2020. According to the plaintiffs, they believe that no winners were actually chosen; instead, their personal information was sold to relentless advertisers. No word on if those advertisers were SKIMS, Good American, Poosh, Lemme, 818 Tequila, Kylie Cosmetics, and/or Arthur George Socks; but we know how this family works and that would track so hard. The company behind the contests, Curated Businesses, says that the contests were run legitimately and winners exist.

Hopefuls on Instagram entered to win prizes like cash and trips but instead ended up with nothing but shame and inboxes full of obnoxious spam. via Complex:

According to TMZ, people who entered the contest could potentially win high-end prizes like a $100,000 cash prize, first-class tickets to Los Angeles, and a three-night stay in Beverly Hills. Disick—who is alleged as the main organizer—worked with the Australian company, Curated Businesses, to set up the lottery.

However, those who participated in the contest now claim that the 2020 lottery was a scam and used to sell their personal information to advertisers. The filing says that participants have been “invaded by hundreds of advertisers, some of which are soliciting the Plaintiffs with potentially offensive and unwanted content.”

While Kim and Scott are the only two individuals being sued along with Curated Businesses, they weren’t the only celebs to awkwardly pose with a horde of Louis Vuitton bags to promote the lotteries.

Kim promoted the lottery on Instagram, as well as Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Sofia Richie, Gretchen Christine Rossi, and Christine Quinn. Curated Businesses also told TMZ that they have authentic winners and the paperwork to show it.

Here’s just a sampling of the Krew flaunting their wealth to “allegedly” underhandedly gain more wealth:

Curated Businesses’ website lists winners of the lotteries from 2019-2022, but only gives their Instagram handles. While some of the winners are shown in pictures holding cash and gift cards, we all know that we can’t believe everything we see on the internet, especially if it’s been kontaminated by Kardashian. The plaintiffs aren’t buying it either.

“Just a short 20 years ago, Oprah was giving away cars and cash. But today’s entertainment tycoons seem to only care about becoming richer and living an even more opulent lifestyle while duping their fans and followers,” the lawsuit says.

Since Scott’s been disKarded and replaced by Travis Barker, I often wondered how the Flip It Like Disickstar” continued to generate the funds for Lambos to flip, but as a scholar of the Jen Shah case, I learned that selling information to advertisers can be quite lucrative. But how could a trustworthy, unassuming sex tape release victim/weight loss guru/water-wasting/brilliant legal student like Kim do this to her adoring fans? This (along with her crime-against-the-eyes Interview pics) is a case for the FBI.
