Khloe Kardashian Hits Back at Lawsuit Filed by Former Assistant, Denies All Claims
Firing back. After Khloé Kardashian was sued by her former assistant for unlawful termination, she filed her own court documents and denied the claims. According to court papers obtained by Us Weekly on Wednesday, May 31, the Good American designer, 38, filed a case management statement in the Superior Court of California. “Defendant also alleges claims based on his alleged termination of employment. Defendants deny all claims and allegations,” Kardashian’s statement reads while noting that she is willing to undergo mediation to settle the case. Both parties have since agreed to a 30-day extension, in which Kardashian is granted more time to respond to the initial complaint. She has until June 26 to reply. Us previously confirmed in February that Matthew Manhard sued the Kardashians star for allegedly firing him when he returned to work after being sidelined with a knee injury. Manhard — who worked as a household assistant for Kardashian between January 2019 and November 2022 — claimed that the Revenge Body alum gave him too many tasks that interfered with his ability to take legally required breaks. He also alleged that Kardashian did not pay him overtime despite working more than 12-hour days. The Strong Looks Better Naked author, who was sued for breach of California’s labor laws, fervently denied the allegations at the time.
