Kardashians Taking Sweatshop Claims "Very Seriously," Family Publicist Says

Posted on Wed Dec 21, 2011 02:05 PM PDT


The Kardashians are not staying quiet regarding claims that they've been using Chinese sweatshops to manufacture products.

Jill Fritzo, the Kardashian's rep, issued the following statement:

    "This is the first we are hearing about it and take it very seriously as we would never condone this. We are presently investigating the situation."

Star magazine is reporting that the family's successful clothing brand was created in foreign sweatshops using child labor. According to the report, the workers are as young as sixteen years old and are being abused and imprisoned against their will.

The Kardashians earned a reported $65 million last year.

Do you think the Kardashians knew about these conditions?
