After Star Magazine reported that the Kardashian family's clothing lines were being manufactured in Chinese sweatshops (not to mention Global Labour and Human Rights director Charles Kernaghan supporting those claims), the family is firing back, but it looks like they're still not ready to take legal action.
Starâ€™s report quoted the IGLHR as saying the family is â€œtaking advantage of these workersâ€ and â€œholding hands with a government that spits on democracy and womenâ€™s rights.â€ Though it's been reported that the family is preparing to sue the magazine and organization for libel, a source close to the Kardashians told X17online that there are currently no plans for a lawsuit.
A rep for the family said in a statement, â€œThey take this situation very seriously and have been assured by all of their manufacturers that the factories are policed regularly and there is no truth to these allegations. That said, we are continuing to investigate the matter and if there is any evidence of an illegal operation then they will cease work with that manufacturer immediately.â€
Wait, so the Kardashians still don't really know for sure? Maybe that's why they're not suing yet?
