Kim Kardashian “Publicist” Issues Public Apology After Making False Allegations
Jonathan Jaxson, who claimed he was Kardashian‘s publicist from 2007 to 2009, told “Good Day L.A.” in November that her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries “was staged.” Alleging he had insider information, Jaxson insisted the nuptials were fake but never managed to prove it. As Gossip Cop previously reported, a lawyer for Kardashian denied the two ever worked together and vowed to take legal action.
Now, the two parties have reached a settlement, which includes Jaxson admitting he was lying. “I wanted to apologize publicly to Kim Kardashian for any confusion that I may have caused by the personal statements I made recently regarding Kim Kardashian,” Jaxson wrote on his website. He continued, “I would like to further clarify that I did not have any first hand knowledge of Kim’s relationship with Kris.”
“Any statement I made regarding Kim and her marriage was my opinion only,” Jaxson added, “and was not intended to imply first hand knowledge of Kim’s thoughts and feelings.” For her part, Kardashian’s lawyer tells Gossip Cop she is “very happy” and “extremely pleased with the outcome of the matter.”
