Khloe Kardashian may be in some legal trouble. The reality star is reportedly being sued for assault in connection with an alleged incident that took place in Hollywood in 2009.
TMZ reported that Kardashian got into an argument with a transgender woman named Chantal Spears (real name Ronald Spears) on December 5, 2009, at Playhouse nightclub. Spears claims that the reality star pushed and struck her “in and about her body,” leading to injuries.
The website further reports that the altercation took place when Spears allegedly walked up to Khloe’s husband, Lamar Odom, and told him that he was “too young to be married.” In a video posted at the time of the incident, she told a cameraman for the website, “All I was telling Lamar Odom is maybe he is too young to get married, and all of a sudden I get this big push from this girl,” she explained. “She hit me. She pushed me and hit me. [Security] didn’t say nothing. It was her. She looked in my face. I tried to get her and she pushed me again.”
Later Spears is seen holding up a police report and saying, “She’s in trouble. Yeah, [she’s going to court] because everyone seen her hit me first.”
In her lawsuit, Spears says she didn’t provoke anyone and is seeking unspecified damages. A rep for Kardashian had not responded to MTV News’ request for comment by press time.
