Earlier this week news broke in which Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin reportedly stormed out of a fancy New York City restaurant without paying because the the waitress, Blaine Morris — a sporadically working actress formerly of MTV’s Skins — refused to serve them alcohol. When Morris chased the two down for the check, Kendall allegedly threw some money in the woman’s face.
Kardashian lawyer, Marty Singer, however, has contacted TMZ with a letter saying that they are prepared to sue Morris for defamation — and that Kendall was in fact at the restaurant, Mercer Kitchen, but that the series of events that took place were much different.
I don’t know what TMZ has to do with any of this, but okay.
Singer says in the letter … what actually happened was that the waitress did come up to her outside but Jenner was “extremely apologetic” and gladly paid what she owed — $33, plus a $7 tip … which she “politely handed” to her.
Singer says, “Although you are working as a waitress at Mercer Kitchen, I understand you are also a struggling actress,” adding, “You no doubt concocted a fictionalized account of your encounter with my client in order to create publicity for yourself.”
As much as I would love to believe that a Kardashian/Jenner is dragging some poor woman’s name through the mud to misrepresent her own assy behavior, at this point it’s pretty much she-said, she-said. But if the incident did go down as Morris said, there will likely be restaurant managers and other staff able to corroborate her story (because sh*t like that doesn’t go down at an upscale restaurant without anyone noticing), if not surveillance footage.
But at that point, the matter will likely be quietly settled out of court for what amounts to pocket change for the Kardashian empire, and in the meantime, the family has gotten TMZ to do their dirty for work them. God bless America.
