MediaTakeOut is not exactly the pinnacle of good reporting, and the trashy gossip blog published three stories that said that Kim Kardashian West fabricated the Paris robbery that took place on October 2nd. The articles cited no credible sources, and seemed to have gotten their information from conspiracy theories and tweets alone.

Kim's team requested the site remove the articles, and when the didn't, they a made date with them in federal court. Kardashian is seeking general, special, punitive and exemplary damages.

Mysteriously, the three articles have recently vanished.

This is what Kim's attorney Andrew Brettler wrote in the complaint filed on Tuesday:

Kardashian was assaulted and robbed by two masked men, who placed a gun to her head, duct-taped her hands, legs and mouth, and then left her lying helplessly on the bathroom floor of her rented apartment while the thieves absconded with millions of dollars in jewelry. As if that ordeal were not awful enough, Defendants made it worse by publishing on the Website, only hours after the assault, that Kardashian faked the robbery and then committed insurance fraud by filing a false claim with her carrier.

Those turds at MediaTakeOut have yet to comment.
