Kim Kardashian threatens to sue over infidelity story; Edie Falco asks, Kim who?
Kim Kardashian doesn't like it when you mess with her, or her man. The reality TV starlet has denied allegations made by In Touch magazine that she cheated on her now-fiance Kris Humphries with the New England Patriots' Bret Lockett, and she plans to sue the mag for defamation and the NFL player for shooting off his mouth.
This coming on the heels of rumors that she might be pregnant, rumors that she adamantly shut down.
In Touch's current cover story alleges that Kardashian was involved with Lockett for five months while she was courted by Humphries, who popped the question to Lady K after six months of dating.
The tabloid cited text messages exchanged between Kardashian and Lockett and quoted the NFL player as saying Kardashian was the one who "pursued" him.
"I knew this was a game to her, and this is what she does," Lockett is quoted as saying. The magazine adds that their flirtatious messaging started when Kardashian's friend Lauren London told Lockett's brother Colin that Kim wanted Bret's phone number.
"This is absolutely not true," Kardashian told E! News. "I have no idea who this person is."
"For the record, none of the facts ... are accurate," Kardashian lawyer Dennis A. Roach wrote in a demand letter to the magazine's counsel. He asserted that the facts cited by the mag were fabricated and were "at a minimum, damaging, defamatory and an invasion of her privacy."
Roach added that the weekly should "immediately refrain from publishing, distributing or disseminating any factually untrue and unsubstantiated information." If not, Roach said, he "will be forced to take appropriate legal action to protect my client's rights."
As for the blushing bride-to-be, she doesn't seem to appreciate the distraction from her wedding blitz.
"Remember, people only rain on your parade because they're jealous of your sun & tired of their shade," she tweeted Wednesday.
In other Kim K news, the reality star needn't worry about inviting Edie Falco to the wedding. The "Nurse Jackie" star apparently has no idea who Kardashian is.
"Like, forgive me, I don't know if you're friends with her -- but who the hell is Kim Kardashian?" Falco asked New York magazine's Vulture blog.
"Like, who are these people and why are they famous and why are they advertising things and being asked their opinions about things? I just don't understand what these people did to be in a position of having everyone ask their opinions about stuff," Falco said. "I mean, if there's something about her personality or something that she's accomplished or her philosophy on something -- but beyond that I don't understand what's happening. It's actually frightening."
Oh, Edie. If you only knew -- we ask ourselves the same questions every day.
