Sonja Norwood, mother of R n’ B singer Brandy, is suing reality television family the Kardashian’s, claiming that they ran up more than $120,000 worth of expenses on her credit card when Kim Karadashian was employed as Brandy’s stylist back in 2004. According to documents obtained by TMZ.com, Ms Norwood alleges that Kim “was authorized to make one (and only one) purchase on behalf of the Plaintiff, using Plaintiff’s American Express credit card. Neither Kim nor any of the other Defendants were ever authorized to make any further purchases on, or charges to, Plaintiff’s credit card.” The lawsuit claims that Kim disclosed the details of her credit card to other members of her family, and that “each of them, have improperly, and without any permission or authority whatsoever, made charges to Plaintiff’s credit card, claiming to be employed by Brandy or Plaintiff in one capacity or another.”
Norwood states that a total of US$120,653.65, “calculated thus far”, is owed by the Karadashian’s, and that they used the credit card to make purchases in their own stores ‘Dash’ and ‘Smooch’.
At time of writing, there had been no response from the Kardashian family and no official comment made by Brandy or Sonja Norwood.
