Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick are being sued for $59 million for promoting luxury prizes that were allegedly part of an Instagram lottery scam.
The world-famous reality stars apparently shared some sponcon for Australia-based company Curated Businesses, urging their followers to enter some competitions back in 2020.
Fans were promised the chance to win a sh*t-ton of epic goodies, including first-class tickets to LA and a multi-night stay in Beverly Hills. Oh, and a cool $149,000 in cash to “shop like Kim Kardashian“. That’s the dream, right?!
However, it seems no one has cashed in on these prizes because there’s been no “legitimate winners”, according to TMZ insiders.
They also added that there’s been no documentation to prove anyone won the competition, either.
Now, several entrants of the competition are suing Curated Businesses with accusations that the brand orchestrated the comps in order to onsell people’s personal information to advertisers.
The lawsuit claims that those who entered the contests are getting “invaded by hundreds of advertisers”.
“Some of which are soliciting the Plaintiffs with potentially offensive and unwanted content,” it continued.
Sources connected to the company in question have since refuted claims of illegitimate proceedings.
Curated Businesses insiders told TMZ that “every winner is legitimate” and “have been awarded their prizes”.
Scott Disick Is Allegedly the Key Organiser of the Competitions
Scott allegedly organised the lottery via his Instagram account.
The competition was then promoted by various influencers, including his ex Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kris Jenner, and Khloé Kardashian.
Another of Scott’s exes, Sofia Richie, also promoted the contest, as well as Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Christine Rossi and Selling Sunset‘s Christine Quinn.
The stars were called out in the suit as “entertainment tycoons” who “only care about becoming richer”.
“Just a short 20 years ago, Oprah was giving away cars and cash,” the lawsuit reads. “But today’s entertainment tycoons seem to only care about becoming richer and living an even more opulent lifestyle while duping their fans and followers.”
The plaintiffs are reportedly seeking $29 million from each defendant, but only Scott and Kim were named in the lawsuit.
