Kim Kardashian has hired lawyer Marty Singer to muzzle a man identifying himself as her former publicist while asserting her 72-day marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries was a sham.
According to TMZ, Kardashian is seeking $200,000 in legal damages from Jonathan Jaxson.
On Friday, Jaxson told "Good Day L.A." that he worked for the E! reality star from 2007 - 2009 and that the marriage was staged.
Kardashian claims that Jaxson only worked for her on one project -- a blog -- and that he is in violation of a signed confidentiality document.
According to TMZ, Singer has filed papers on the matter to a party specializing in private arbitration.
On his personal blog, Jaxson released the following statement over the weekend: "To the best of my knowledge, I have never signed an agreement dealing with confidentiality with Kim Kardashian. I have an agreement in my possession that does not have either parties signature on it."
A query for comment from Kardashian's publicity team by TheWrap has not yet been responded to.
On Friday, Jaxson told "Good Day L.A.," "The whole show itself was staged to a T."
Earlier, he told the "Elvis Duran Morning Show," "She knew weeks before getting married she didn't want to do it. She's never gotten over [former boyfriend/NFL player Reggie Bush]."
