According to TMZ, Kim has filed a federal lawsuit against MediaTakeOut.com for three posts about the Oct. 2 incident. One of the stories claimed that she "staged" the robbery to increase the excitement for "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
The website, which isn't exactly known to be highly credible, used random people off of social media as "sources," Kim claims in the lawsuit.
In addition to the aforementioned story, MediaTakeOut.com also published a story that said "French authorities" suspected Kim had actually "let the robbers in" the apartment. Finally, the site posted a story about Kim's insurance claim.
"If she faked the robbery ... she just committed a FEDERAL CRIME," the post said.
Many of MediaTakeOut.com's posts were picked up some other less-than-credible outlets and shared on social media.
Kim's legal team has demanded the posts be taken down. TMZ reached out to MediaTakeOut.com, but got no response.
Kim has yet to publicly comment on the robbery in which five men reportedly gagged and bound her and held her at gunpoint while they made off with $5.6 million in jewelry. In their hasty escape, the men dropped a platinum mounted diamond cross pendant on the street that was valued at $33,000.
Just as Kim's lawsuit was filed about MediaTakeOut.com, Radar Online, which also isn't always in the truth telling business, published a story that said Kim's claims were "FAKE — staged to bail out bankrupt Kanye West!" So, there likely could be another lawsuit there.
On Tuesday, Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres Show that Kim is "not doing that well."
"I mean, it's incredibly traumatic what happened to her," she says. "But our family is super close and great and we'll get through it together and we do appreciate all of your guys' love and support. It will take time. You know, it was horrible what happened to her."
