Kourtney sued by clothing company
New York: Kourtney Kardashian has been sued by a clothing apparel company for children.
The lawsuit was filed on July 1, 2010 in Van Nuys, California by Flowers by Zoe naming Kourtney as a defendant, along with ‘Smooch,’ a children’s boutique she owned with her mother, Kris.
The lawsuit is listed as a ‘Complaint for Money’ and the clothing store is seeking 2,331.23 dollars in damages for non-payment, reports Radaronline.com.
“On or about March 23, 2010, the Defendants Kourtney and Smooch became indebted to the Plaintiff Flowers by Zoe on an open book account for money due as provided in C.C.P. Section 337a, at the special insistence and request of the Defendants, for credit provided for the purchase of goods, wares, merchandise or services rendered,” the legal document reports.
Smooch stopped business in 2009. Kourtney posted on her website at that time, “My mom and I opened our children’s clothing boutique Smooch six years ago. My grandmother has had a children’s boutique in La Jolla for 30 years now, and it was always a dream of my mom’s and mine to have a store of our own.”
“I used to work in the store all day, every day, stay hours after closing and was obsessed with it. Smooch was my baby! After thinking about it long and hard, we have decided to close Smooch.
“This does make me sad, but I also know that I don’t have the time (especially now that I will have my baby boy to take care of) that the store deserves to be the Smooch that was created. It is just not the same without me and my mom there to run it,” the post added.
The next hearing is scheduled for January 3, 2011.
