kardashians040212_01_230.jpgEarlier this week, In Touch kicked off a frenzy of media reports by publishing a story detailing the Kardashian girl's unstable upbringing. Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney's lawyer father Robert Kardashian apparently documented all of the mental and physical abuse by his former wife in a secret journal, which the family believes was given to the magazine by his widow Ellen Kardashian.

One journal entry details how the family matriarch kicked and threatened to kill Kim when she was just 8-years-old. Another claims that the momager used to abandon her kids to have sex with her boy toy lover Todd Waterman during her extramarital affair, and wouldn't even call to check-in on them for days at a time.

Apparently the Keeping Up with the Kardashian stars still carry the scars from their rocky relationship with their mother, which is why more often than not, they refer to her as Kris, rather than mom.

Although it is pretty difficult to deny things when cold hard evidence exists, the reality stars are fighting back and slamming their stepmom for selling "lies" to the media for money.

"You should be hiding in shame for all of the lies you sell to tabloids!! 10yrs after my father's passing & now that she has filed for bankruptcy... NOW she sells FALSE stories. Hope that money buys you water in hell," Khloe furiously tweeted.

Although Kris has yet to speak out on the story, the family rep denies all the allegations. "We have no knowledge of these diaries existing and these accusations are ridiculous and not true," the rep said in a statement.
