The erudite author and scholar Notorious B.I.G. once said that when you have more money, you have more problems. He couldn’t have hit the nail on the head any harder. Few people have been able to embody this principle than the Kardashian clique. They are so in right now that every company wants to use their name, their image, or their popularity to sell their product. No one really understands why they are such a big draw. It’s kind of like trying to explain how a microwave really works. No one really cares, you just know that if you press buttons a hot pocket becomes fantastic.
Unfortunately, with all of this fame comes people lurking to make a quick buck through the legal system. Copyright lawsuits, negligence lawsuits, breach of contract claims, and even paternity suits have hit the Kardashian crew pretty hard. That’s not surprising. What is surprising is that they have managed to dodge having to go to court like a young Michael Vick. Whoever their lawyers are, they should get a nice Christmas ham for all of their hard work. Never mind, it would probably sue the Kardashians too for some reason. Check out the 10 lawsuits that have that special Kardashian twist.

The United States Copyright Office was designed specifically to give people enforceable rights against people who try to use copyrighted work. If someone tries to use or sell work that is copyrighted by someone else, they can get fined up the wazoo.
9 Disick in Hot Water in the UK
Ever seen a kid whose parents forced her to go to a family reunion or hang out with some kid from school who eats his boogers? Think about the face on that kid. Think about her body language. Just imagine how over the whole situation she would be.

7 Kylie Jenner Car Accident
6 Kris Humphries' 72 Day Marriage
5 Prepaid Debit Debacle
If being a Kardashian lawyer doesn’t encourage more people to go to law school, this next story might do the trick. The Kardashian sisters agreed to promote a prepaid debit card company’s services by saying nice things about it to the public. After pulling back the curtain a bit, consumer watchdog groups and the Connecticut Attorney General realized something fishy was going on. Honestly, they were probably the last to realize it.

2 Kanye Breaks Out a Can of Whoop-Ass
Listening to most rap songs gives the indication that being a rapper equals being a badass. Kanye put his money - or his fist - where another guy’s mouth is to make this true. The honorary Kardashian kept his pimp hand strong with an 18-year old at a chiropractor's office in Los Angeles.
1 Makeup Lawsuit
The Kardashians love to use makeup about as much as that guy at the gym loves to talk about his squat routine (hint: a lot). A company tried to leach on to the Kardashian sisters to market their brand of makeup. The Kardashians said, “call me,” and then in true Kardashian fashion dumped the makeup company on their behinds and went with another to sell a similar product.
The worst part is that the name the original makeup company had a brand called KROMA while the new makeup company used the brand name KHROMA. The KROMA company filed suit in federal court saying that the KHROMA name would confuse people. The judge said you’re damn straight they did (they didn’t say that). The bad guys quickly changed their brand name to Kardashian Beauty, somehow missing this oxymoron. The two companies eventually ended up settling. No word on whether either got their souls back from the Kardashians.
