Khloe Kardashian Claims Alleged Assault on Transgender Woman Was Self-Defense


By Shari Weiss


Khloe Kardashian is striking back against the transgender woman who is suing the reality star for assault.

Chantal Spears (also known as Ronald Spears) alleged in a lawsuit filed in December that Kardashian caused her significant injuries after an altercation outside Playhouse nightclub in 2009.

In the court papers, Spears claimed Kardashian “pushed” and “hit” her, though no arrests or citations were made.

Now in her own filing, Kardashian says her behavior “was reasonably necessary for her self-defense and safety,” according to TMZ.

The incident reportedly occurred after Spears approached Kardashian’s husband, Lamar Odom, telling him he was “too young to be married.”

Spears is suing Kardashian for damages.

It is not yet known whether the case will go to trial.
