Rob Delaney to Sue Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest, E!, and Comcast
Comedian Rob Delaney, who writes a very funny column for Vice, says he's filing suit against Kim Kardashian and the rest of the players in her probably-sham 72-day marriage and subsequent divorce. Why? Because why the hell not. Also:
I guess I'm just nervous because I've never sued anyone before, and this is not a joke. I AM suing Kim Kardashian and the others mentioned above. It is alleged that Kim Kardshian was paid $18 million to participate in her own wedding. I feel like schools could use that money. Or health clinics in areas hit hardest by the recession. Or Pizza Hut. Or Bernie Madoff. Or my uncle Mitchell, who is a convicted sex offender making a living selling Percocet to the elderly in Rhode Island.
Also, quitting your marriage now is a rather public admission that you are very, very bad at the job you were hired to do. I will be surprised if the venerable fashion house Sears renews your "design" contract.
Delaney also says he's suing Comcast, E! and Ryan Seacrest, who produces the insipid Kardashian television show. And apparently this is a real plan.
We've reached out to Delaney (well, via Tumblr) and Kardashian and will update if we hear back. No word yet on how much he's suing for!
