I remember seeing Russell Simmons advertise his pre-paid “Rush” cards years back. It really rubbed me the wrong way. Then I saw the Kardashians take the baton and try to do the same, and once again it bothered me.  There might very well not be an issue with the cards or the terms but for whatever unknown reason to me, it really just irks me and feels suspect. I guess I always suspect somehow, somewhere there will be hidden fees for the unsuspecting. 🙂 In any event, here we are with the story below. For breach of contract analysis, click here.

“NEW YORK (CBS) Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are facing some off-screen drama.

A company that created a prepaid debit card endorsed by the reality TV stars has sued the trio for breach of contract.

The Fresno Bee reports that Revenue Resource Group LLC claims it lost millions of dollars after the sisters pulled out of the deal in November after facing criticism over the card’s fees.

The company’s lawsuit claims they broke their contract and cost company at least $75 million in losses. The sisters’ mother, Kris Kardashian Jenner, and their company, Dash Dolls LLC, are also named in the suit.

The suit alleges the sisters improperly terminated a two-year contract to promote the Kardashian Kard, a prepaid debit card aimed at young adults. The deal had called for the sisters to advertise the card on their websites and through social media, according to the report. They also were supposed to appear at events on behalf of the company. . .” ~CBSNews.com has the full story.
