Earlier in the month, MediaTakeOut published a series of articles that accused Kim Kardashian of faking the robbery in which she lost millions of dollars worth of jewellery, then claimed that she’d filed a fraudulent insurance claim for the missing items.
Kim replied by filing a lawsuit against them and now, the site has published a retraction of the stories.
The site has also posted an apology to its website, admitting that the posts were indeed false.
‘MediaTakeOut regrettably published a series of false stories about Kim Kardashian West suggesting she faked the robbery in Paris, lied to authorities and then filed a $5.6 million fraudulent insurance claim for her stolen jewelry. MediaTakeOut knows that Mrs. Kardashian West was in fact robbed in Paris. We have permanently removed from our website any and all posts that suggested she staged the robbery, lied about it to the French police and committed an insurance crime.
‘We sincerely apologize to Mrs. Kardashian West and her family for the false stories we published and regret suggesting that what happened to her in Paris was anything less than horrific.’
Subsequently, Kim’s lawyers confirmed that they have dropped the lawsuit as she continues to recover from the harrowing robbery.
