Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is suing her former publicist whom she claims is spreading lies about her.

Jonathan Jaxson, who is promoting his book, claimed that Kardashian's marriage was staged.

However, the 31-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashian star's lawyer said: "He only did a PR work for her once years ago on a blog and she barely remembered him."

Kardashian has hired attorney Marty Singer to prevent Jonathan from making anymore claims and he has been served a legal paper for violating a written agreement that they signed years ago.

Kardashian is said to be surprised how Jaxson started talking about her marriage while the fact is they have not been in contact for a long time.

Singer submitted papers to a private arbitration in which it is stated that her reputation has been damaged by his allegedly defamatory statements.

"Everything that he is saying is false and nonsense. This guy is in it to promote himself for his 15 mins of fame," Singer said.

Kardashian is seeking US$ 200,000 in damages.

In response to the lawsuit, Jaxson said: "I have never signed an agreement dealing with confidentiality with Kim Kardashian. I have an agreement in my possession that does not have either parties signature on it."

Kardashian married NBA basketball player Kris Humphries in August in a lavish ceremony and filed for divorce after 72 days.
