The Kardashians were stunned—and they sued—after Robert Kardashian’s widow, Ellen Pearson, aired all their dirty laundry by selling details from his diaries to In Touch magazine this year. According to the diary entries provided to the magazine by Pearson? She claimed that Kris Jenner allegedly tortured her daughters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian with hair-pulling, arm-twisting and repeated beatings. The Kardashians denied all of Pearson’s claims and slapped her with a lawsuit; Pearson then filed a countersuit and both cases have since been settled.

But she soon settled a lawsuit with Vivid Entertainment, reportedly getting $5 million for the tape — just six months before Keeping Up with The Kardashians premiered. Reality TV star Janice Dickinson recently claimed to Radar, “Kris Jenner signed a contract with Vivid. Kris approved the video, she signed it along with Kim and Ray J.” A Kardashian rep previously called claims that Kris was involved in the release of the tape “100 percent not true.”

Houghton’s former fiancé, Vicky Thomsen, told Star they planned to marry in 1975 in Mexico but after downing margaritas, Bob got behind the wheel of his Porsche and swerved into a vegetable truck, dying in the accident. (Thomsen survived to tell the tale). Another former girlfriend, Leslie Johnson Leech, told Star that Kris likely inherited her dad’s ambition.
Kris Jenner’s “Bribe”:
As Radar has reported, Kris tried to bribe her way to a better review of her summer talk show, Kris, according to New York Post columnist Linda Stasi. Stasi had slammed the show, saying Kris came across as a “demented Norma Desmond.” Kris apparently tried to convince Stassi otherwise, as Stasi reported she received a “bribe” of a dozen Magnolia cupcakes and a $325 sterling silver Tiffany pen! In a note to Stassi, Kris wrote that perhaps she could use the pen to write a “better review next time.” Stassi replied that she’s not allowed to accept bribes!

But a source told Radar that before baby North’s birth, the reality beauty’s family didn’t approve of how the singer was treating her. Kris was reportedly horrified when West walked into a street sign and then went on an expletive-laden tirade against photographers in front of pregnant Kim. The Kardashian clan was also allegedly appalled when they saw how West didn’t open a door for massively expectant Kim during a shopping trip to Paris, letting her do it herself!
Kourtney’s Will Challenge:
Kourtney Kardashian contested the will of her late father, Robert, because she believed the document was forged, Radar has reported.

Kris Cheated on Bruce?:
On Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kris and Bruce Jenner were shown to be bickering but loving spouses. However, the marriage came under fire when In Touch magazine reported that Kris cheated on Bruce when they were living together (before getting married in 1991). While the Kardashian matriarch has denied cheating on Bruce with former boyfriend Todd Waterman, the magazine says he revealed in January 2012 that he had sex with her when she was dating the Olympian. However, Waterman reportedly received a payment of $15,000 to $20,000 after appearing on KUWTK later in 2012, and said that he is no longer allowed to comment about his relationship with Kris.
Kanye Rejected Kris’ House Plans:
As Radar reported, Kris had a big plan to keep her daughter and first grandchild close by –but it was dashed after Kim’s baby daddy, West, rejected the idea of moving into the Kardashians’ neighborhood. Although Kim lived at her mom and Bruce’s house during her pregnancy and while filming KUWTK, Kanye had no interest in living nearby afterwards, fearing Kris would be intruding on their privacy, a Radar source said. So Kimye splashed out a cool $11 million on a luxurious home in Bel Air, far away from the Kardashian country of Calabasas! They’ve since sold that pad and moved into yet another dream home.
Kris and Bruce’s Sham Marriage:
When Radar reported in summer 2013 that Kris and Bruce had separated, the momager was quick to squash the rumors, insisting on a June 26 appearance on The View that she and Bruce were happy together. But when she filed for divorce in September 2014, she listed their date of separation as June 1, 2013 — proving Radar had been right all along!
Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal:
A clothing manufacturer once used by the Kardashians to produce one of their branded lines paid its Chinese workers a paltry 8 cents per garment, an investigation by a leading human rights advocacy group uncovered in 2011.

Kim and Kanye Plastic Surgery Battle:
According to sources, the reality show star has been considering getting plastic surgery to reshape her post-baby body — but West can’t stand the idea!

However, Kanye’s mother, Donda West, passed away after having plastic surgery and he doesn’t want his baby mama taking any drastic measures, sources said.
Ratings Struggles Doom Show:
After many years of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the family doesn’t want you to know it might soon be over!

A source said Kim got upset that West took over to make all of the public announcements about their baby, North. “Kanye wants to make sure that every single aspect of Kim’s life is now handled the way he wants it to be,” the source said. It’s hard for Kim because she craves the spotlight and being shut away from the photographers and fans, Radar’s source said.
Kanye and Kim Throw Kris A Lifeline:
The super couple, Radar learned, rejected a $4 million offer from an Australian news outlet for publishing rights to the first photos of their newborn daughter North to let Kim’s mother Kris unveil a photograph of the child on her much-in-need-of-a-boost talk show, Kris. Although the move did increase the ratings — up 113 percent over the show’s average — Radar sources reported the show was still canceled.
Kim’s Secret Butt Implants:
The reality TV queen has always denied having plastic surgery done on her famous derriere, but according to a report in the magazine The Making of Kim Kardashian, she is indeed surgically enhanced — just not by typical implants. “Kim had lipo on her legs and the doctor moved the fat into her butt,” a source told the magazine. Meanwhile, Kim has claimed, “I’ve tried Botox before. That’s the only thing that I’ve done.”

North’s Luxe Life:
Kanye and Kim probably wouldn’t want fans to know their outrageous expenditures on baby North. Kim outfitted “Nori’s” lavish nursery in their Bel Air mansion with a top-of-the line crib, designer furnishings, hand-made teddy bears from Paris, expensive art work, a state-of-the-art sound system and custom-made baby monitors, sources say. And Radar also learned that West shelled out $1.2 million each for two super-sized SUV’s for Kim and their baby girl.
Kim Wanted to Film Goodbye to Ex:
It’s no secret that the Kardashians love the TV cameras, but did Kim even try to exploit her divorce for ratings? That was what Radar found out when a source said Kim’s ex, Kris Humphries, turned down her request to film a final farewell video chat for KUWTK. Kim wanted cameras rolling for a Skype chat with Humphries to let the basketball hunk know she truly had loved him. “But Kris said no way,” a source told Radar. “He didn’t want to appear on any of the Kardashian reality shows ever again.”

Kim Kardashian had an on-camera meltdown during KUWTK, after mom Kris and sister Khloe trashed her yard with toilet paper. But Radar learned the scenes were scripted! According to a source, the earlier premise that Kim and Kourtney were ignoring Khloe as they shopped for baby clothes wasn’t true. “It makes for better television if Khloe feels left out,” the source said.

Khloe Paternity Scandal:
In 2012, Star magazine claimed that the late Robert Kardashian, Kris Jenner’s first husband, was not really the father of daughter Khloe, according to interviews with the attorney’s other wives, Jan Ashley and Ellen Kardashian. “Khloe is not his kid. He told me that after we got married,” Ashley declared.

Kim Branded A Homewrecker:
As Radar reported , Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, called Kim a “homewrecker,” asserting that the rapper cheated on her with Kim while Kim was also dating someone else — football player Reggie Bush.

District Attorney’s office after someone alerted the authorities that he had stolen money a year earlier from a bank near the Disick family home in Eastport, New York.

Nanny Tells All:

Some like it Bruce?:
