KIM KARDASHIAN’S parents will file for a divorce, alleging negligence in their daughter’s death, their lawyer has said.
Kim Kardashian’s mother and father will appear before a judge on Friday to discuss their dispute over her death.
Kim’s body was found at her Beverly Hills, California, home on March 1, 2016.
Her death was ruled a homicide, sparking protests in the US and the world over the state’s harsh drug policies and lack of adequate police protection.
Kim was found dead with a blunt object in her bathroom.
She was rushed to hospital but died of an overdose.
Kim and Kanye West are now estranged.
The lawyer for the Kardashian family said on Tuesday that the couple’s daughter’s parents have filed for divorce and have been ordered to return $100,000 in assets.
“They have filed papers and they will be seeking to return the assets to the Kims and have them paid to them by the court,” attorney Michael Arrington told the Associated Press news agency.
“I think it’s a huge mistake for them to file these papers and have it go to trial,” he said.
“The family is trying to get this money back to them and it’s just a huge waste of time.”‘
Disappointed and hurt’Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s divorce lawyer, Michael Arreondi, speaking to the AP.
Arreondis said the couple had been living in a home in North Carolina with their daughter, Kourtney, and their son, Jay.
“Kim was in a very dysfunctional home, which she herself said was her fault,” he told the AP in an interview.
“Kourtney and Jay are devastated by what has happened and their relationship is very, very, sad and I’m disappointed and hurt by what’s happened.”
It’s a terrible thing that they’re going through and I think the courts will have to decide.”‘
Unsustainable lifestyle’Kardashians’ son, Kanye West, and Kim’s estranged father-in-law, Brad Grey, had been close since Kanye was a teenager and had been estranged from Kim for years.”
We are disappointed and we are hurt that the family will have this issue and that it will go to court,” Arreonding said.
He said that the Kardashian’s plan was to “use Kim’s death as a way to show that the Kim dynasty is unsustainable and that she doesn’t have the control over her life that she believes she has.””
They want to show they have no control over their daughter,” he added.
Kim had been under strict orders to keep a strict diet, exercise and avoid alcohol.
Kim is survived by her father, Kanye’s brother Jay, and mother, Khloe.
