Kim Kardashian and her ex-publicist/”friend”/hanger-on Jonathan Jaxson have finally reached a settlement in their little feud, her reps told Us Weekly earlier this week. After Kim filed for divorce from Kris Humphries a few months ago, Jonathan suddenly popped up on every morning show as a talking head, alleging that he had worked with Kim from 2007-2009 and that her marriage to Kris — and really, all of her relationships — was staged for the cameras.
Jonathan has also been promoting his new tell-all book about Hollywood, which it seems would include dish on the fameball Kardashian family. To that end, Kim slapped him with a $200,000 lawsuit, claiming that he had signed a nondisclosure agreement during their time as employer/employee. But now it looks like everything’s OK: Kim’s rep announced,
Kim Kardashian is very happy to announce that she has reached a settlement of her claims against Jonathan Jaxson… Kim is extremely pleased with the outcome of the matter.
As part of the agreement, Jonathan was required to post a public apology to Kim on his blog. (Likely because he had been using the blog to stir up more drama, including posting videos of him and Kim that showed them to be friends.) Now, what’s interesting is that since Jonathan complied and posted his apology on the 21st, his entire blog has been deleted. Here’s what he originally said:
I wanted to apologize publicly to Kim Kardashian for any confusion that I may have caused by the personal statements I made recently regarding Kim Kardashian. I would like to further clarify that I did not have any first hand knowledge of Kim’s relationship with Kris.
Any statement I made regarding Kim and her marriage was my opinion only and was not intended to imply first hand knowledge of Kim’s thoughts and feelings
What does this mean that his site was taken down? Perhaps Kim’s lawyers thought it was more dangerous for all the old posts to stay up, and they served him with some sort of cease-and-desist? Or, Jonathan could be getting one more jab in to Kim; after all, in this case he would have posted the apology and then erased it.
