Kim K gets apology from website that published story claiming her robbery was staged.
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian fondly called ‘Kim K’ has received an apology from the website that claimed her robbery attack was fake.
She took legal action against the media outfit MediaTakeOut over claims she faked her Paris robbery.
On Friday, MediaTakeOut posted a lengthy statement on their website apologizing to Kim over their claims.
The statement said:
“After speaking to sources, including some connected to the Kardashians, and getting further details on the sequence of events – we are now confident and without a doubt believe that Kim Kardashian was robbed as was reported to the Paris police.
“Anyone who is still questioning it is wrong.
“We can understand how reports questioning if the robbery in fact took place can be hurtful, and so we apologize.”
The 35-year-old reality star had enlisted her lawyers to take action against the media outfit.
MediaTakeOut had posted 3 articles about her faking the robbery and committing insurance fraud.

In the suit Kim filed, she reportedly accused the gossip site of ‘blatant defamatory lies.’
She also accused them of labeling her ‘without any factual support’ a ‘liar and a thief’.
Kim’s lawyers said the site has no credible sources to back-up the ‘false and outrageous’ claim.
MediaTakeOut Founder, Fred Mwangaguhunga not only issued an apology but also wished Kim well as she recovers from her ordeal.
In his apology statement, he said:
“No one deserves to go through such a traumatic experience.
“Kim is not just celebrity, she is a person, a wife and a mother – who in no way deserved what happened to her.
“We wish her the best as she emotionally recovers from the traumatic incident.”
On Friday, Mwangaguhunga also went on CNN to acknowledge their reporting had gone too far.

The robbers reportedly entered her Paris hotel building at around 3am after the concierge let them in.

She reportedly told the robbers she was a mother of two, before the robbers made off with her giant engagement ring and a jewelry box.
The TV star is said to be ‘badly shaken’ and ‘blaming herself’ after the shocking attack.
Kim is already making changes to her public profile and security who were fingered as possible suspects.
Kim has also canceled public appearances for a month and is now recovering at her home in Los Angeles.
