Kim Kardashian And Scott Disick Sued Over Allegedly Running A Massive Instagram Scam For $40 Million10/21/2022
According to the class action lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Kim and Scott created a lottery where the winner would get $100,000 and 2, first class tickets to L.A. But wait, there’s more. The winner would also get a 3-night stay in Bev Hills and they could “shop like Kim Kardashian.”
The lawsuit claims the 2020 lottery was a sham. The real purpose of the so-called lottery was for the celebrities to work with an Australian company — Curated — which is also being sued, to sell personal information to advertisers.
The suit claims winners were announced but the “winners” Instagram accounts were quickly made private and the plaintiffs are doubtful that everything’s on the up and up.
Sources directly connected to Curated tell TMZ, every winner is legitimate, have been awarded their prizes and the company has appropriate paperwork to prove that.
The suit claims the people who entered the contest are getting “invaded by hundreds of advertisers, some of which are soliciting the Plaintiffs with potentially offensive and unwanted content.”

Kim promoted the lottery on Instagram, as well as Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Sofia Richie, Gretchen Christine Rossi, and Christine Quinn. Curated Businesses also told TMZ that they have authentic winners and the paperwork to show it.
According to the lawsuit, “Just a short 20 years ago, Oprah was giving away cars and cash. But today’s entertainment tycoons seem to only care about becoming richer and living an even more opulent lifestyle while duping their fans and followers.”
Disick and Kim are the only celebrities named in the lawsuit, as well as Curated Businesses.
The suit is asking for more than $20 million from each defendant, though the only 2 specifically named are Kim and Scott, along with the Australian company.
However, the Australian-based company explains on its website how its process works in its “Frequently Asked Questions” section and has a list of campaign winners from 2019 to 2022 on one of its landing pages.
Under the question “How is the winner selected?,” Curated Businesses responds, “We engage the services of a third party facilitator to conduct a random draw of all eligible entrants.
“They are Australian government approved and compliant. As required by Australian law, we also engage the services of fully qualified independent scrutineer to oversee the random draw.”
One of the winners listed is a social media user with the handle @nana_billions.
In an August 31 post about the contest’s results on Instagram, she wrote, “Pinch meeeeeeeeee! I’m screaming omg this is surreal! @curatedbusinesses @curated_businesses_legal thank you guys so much! I’m in shock 💃💃💃💃💃💃.”
