According to Courthouse News, a man named Gino Romano filed a lawsuit on June 19, 2012 in the U.S. District Court in Dallas against Kim Kardashian, Mark Cuban, Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom and Kris Jenner. Allegations from the court papers indicate the following:
Class injunctive actions where the plaintiff claims he was in a suite at a Dallas Mavericks game that was next to Cuban’s personal suite. He claims he overheard Cuban offering to not cut Odom from the roster if defendants’ Khloe and Kim Kardashian agreed to shoot a sex tape with him. The plaintiff claims Jenner agreed to shoot it and that the plaintiff climbed into the arena’s ventilation system, creeped through the ducts and saw them having sex. The plaintiff says he made off with the sex tape and has been in hiding ever since.
According to a source, the full court documents reveal the lawsuit also alleges that Mark Cuban fathered Kourtney Kardashian’s child.
Holy allegations! Let’s take this one with a grain of salt you guys. This isn’t Romano’s first rodeo. Romano also filed two restraining orders in Tampa against the Kardashians. Both motions were denied for being frivolous and patently frivolous, respectively.
Excerpts from the first lawsuit filed in Tampa below. Related: key allegations highlighted for your pleasure.
The motion states that Plaintiff faces “imminent danger and bodily harm” from the Defendants, the Kardashians,*fn2 based on an alleged incident that occurred at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida. Plaintiff contends that Khloe Kardashian put him in a head lock, Kourtney Kardashian stuck her heel in his eye, Kim Kardashian put brass knuckles on and punched him in the teeth, and Kris Kardashian pulled out mace and sprayed him while Kim Kardashian searched his pockets and stole his wallet. The motion contains additional descriptions of the alleged batteries he suffered at the hands of the Kardashians, and states that he is bed confined because his head is injured and Kim Kardashian told him “in Arnold Swartzeneggers [sic] voice” that she would be back.
Excerpt from the second lawsuit filed in Tampa below. Seriously, this is some great ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ fan fiction right here. Like is this guy crazy or what!? WHAT.
Petitioner contends he was “terrorized” on the Tower of Terror ride at Disney’s MGM Studios theme park in Orlando, Florida. Petitioner’s “terror” was not, however, what Disney had in mind when it designed and built the Tower of Terror ride. The Tower of Terror is a drop tower thrill ride which borrows liberally from the television show The Twilight Zone to set the ride’s ambiance and scenes. The ride itself is revolutionary-it employs special self-propelled vehicles which independently move in and out of the ride elevators and drop shafts. The ride induces “terror” in its riders by (as one might guess) dropping the vehicles from a great height.
Instead of this kind of terror, Petitioner contends he faced “imminent danger and bodily harm” from the Kardashian Defendants and Defendant Kris Jenner. According to Petitioner, just before the vehicle in which he was riding dropped, he was startled when one of the Kardashian Defendants whispered in his ear. Another Kardashian Defendant then “tasered” him as the vehicle was dropping. Petitioner contends he suffered a seizure and (presumably after the ride had ended or at least after the vehicle stopped dropping) ran away. Unfortunately, he ran straight into yet another Kardashian Defendant, who could not only run faster than Petitioner but had enough time after doing so to don a Sumo Wrestler suit as well. The Kardashians then stole his wallet and Rolex watch. Petitioner advises the Court he anticipates visiting the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando, Florida, within the next few weeks, and does not “want to be attacked by the Kardashians on [the] Batman or Transformers” rides.
While it may be plausible that more than a few people would be terrorized if they found themselves trapped in the Tower of Terror ride with the Kardashians, the Court concludes the Motion is frivolous. The allegations consist of what appear to be delusions related to Petitioner’s fear and apprehension of the Kardashians. He does not attempt to set out an actionable claim and, indeed, does not do so.*fn1 Petitioner provides no basis for this Court’s jurisdiction, and the Court finds none.*fn2 Finally, the docket reflects Petitioner did not pay the filing fee.*fn3
Petitioner is free to enjoy the theme parks in the greater Orlando area; however, the Court invites him to do so without filing another frivolous lawsuit, regardless of whether the Kardashians join him on the rides.
