Cape Town - Reality star and KKW Beauty make-up mogul Kim Kardashian-West is being sued by a social media developer who alleges that she cheated him out of his profits for Kimoji app, according to the Washington Post.

The law suit launched against Kim and her company Kimsaprincess Inc. by developer David Liebensohn in the federal court of Oklahoma City is worth $100 million (R1.4 billion). According to David, Kim gained interest in an app he had created with his business partners and wanted to team up, agreeing to provide a 60% cut of the profits.

But this was all reverted after the 38-year-old mother-of-three allegedly filed for the trademark in 2014 and informed David that one of his partners has leaked personal information about her – making her want to back out of the deal, reported Daily Mail.

Speaking to TMZ, Kim’s lawyer, Marty Singer, described the lawsuit filed against his client as “ridiculous and absurd. Singer further revealed that the parties entered into a binding settlement agreement, "…in 2014 in which Kim gave up multi-million dollar claims against Mr. Liebensohn and his party," Singer added.

According to Singer, his client did offer the developer and his partners a binding settlement agreement 2014  but they waited more than four years to claim that the agreement wasn't binding, “Kim commenced an arbitration in December 2018, and after Mr. Liebensohn was unsuccessful in stopping the arbitration he filed this meritless lawsuit.”

Singer continued to explain that on those grounds they, “feel very confident we will get the case dismissed.”

In the lawsuit filed by David and his partner, they are suing Kim for breach of contract, fraud and profits they forfeited after being cheated out of the Kimoji deal.
