According to the lawsuit
The lawsuit said that the website lacked any factual details when it published the articles stating her as a liar and a thief and alleged that she faked the whole robbery incident, lied about the violent assault and filed a fraudulent claim with her insurance company to cheat her carrier out of the million dollars.
The lawsuit said that the, malicious publication of these articles, which paint the victim as a criminal herself, is libelous.

As per the lawsuit, Kardashian was assaulted and robbed by two masked men who had put a gun on her head, duct-taped her hands, legs and mouth, and left her lying helplessly on the bathroom floor while they flew-off with the jewelry.
After the attack, her husband, Kanye West, abruptly ended his concert, announcing that he had a family emergency.
