Kardashian West sued the gossip website for publishing articles that suggested she staged the robbery in Paris as a publicity stunt or insurance fraud scheme.
Now, following an apology and retraction from MediaTakeOut, Kardashian West has settled the lawsuit, a representative for the social media star and entrepreneur confirmed to Mashable.
The website deleted the offending posts, which cited “people on social media” as reliable sources, and issued a retraction on Monday.
“We sincerely apologize to Mrs. Kardashian West and her family for the false stories we published and regret suggesting that what happened to her in Paris was anything less than horrific.”
The statement goes on to reveal that, “this matter has been resolved to satisfaction of all the parties.”
The website’s founder, Fred Mwangaguhunga, discussed the lawsuit with CNN last week.
“Kim Kardashian is not just a celebrity, she is a human being. She is a mother, she is a wife and she was a victim of a violent crime,” said Mwangaguhunga. She definitely did not deserve it and she deserved to be believed.”
