Ellen Kardashian Sues Kardashians and Ryan Seacrest for Defamation

We heard two days ago that Ellen Kardashian, the second wife of the late Robert Kardashian and stepmom to the Kardashian kids, was ready to sue the family — and now she has pulled the trigger.

TMZ reports that Ellen has officially filed a defamation suit against Kris Jenner, the Kardashian children — Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob — and even Ryan Seacrest Productions.

In the suit, Ellen alleges that the Kardashians and the producers of their reality show attempted to fool her by baiting her with a private investigator who told Ellen she had damaging information against the famous fam. But Ellen wasn't fooled.

Even so, Ellen claims, the Kardashians lied about her on the show anyway — making incendiary comments, e.g. that Ellen wed the Robert for money.

Most of her ire seems to be directed at Kris, though, as she calls the momager a "manipulative and devious mother and ex-wife who simply used and exploited her children."

As TMZ notes, Ellen is seeking damages of an unspecified amount.
