Why do people always wait forever to file lawsuits?
And who the hell hires Kim Kardashian as their stylist?
Let’s back up.
Brandy Norwood’s mother/manager is suing Kim Kardashian and her siblings, accusing them of running up more than $120,000 in credit card charges without permission while Kim was styling Brandy.
She alleges Kim was authorized to make a single purchase on the family’s AmEx card, but later ran up a ton of unauthorized charges, and gave the card to her siblings, who also ran up a ton of unauthorized charges. Kim claims she and her family were authorized to make all the charges. “We have her signature on all items,” Kardashian says.
You’ll recall that Kim also starred in a recent sex tape with another Norwood: Brandy’s brother Ray-J, who she later dumped for footballer Reggie Bush. Seems like there’s still some bad blood between the families.
Brandy won’t be charged in that little fatal crash on the 405 last year.
“After conducting a thorough investigation, which included consulting with some of the top accident reconstruction experts in the country, city prosecutors concluded that there was insufficient evidence from which a jury could find Ms. Norwood guilty of such a charge beyond a reasonable doubt,” Los Angeles City Attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said.
If convicted, Brandy could have faced up to a year in jail.
However, the relatives of Awatef Aboudihaj, the woman who was killed in the crash, have filed a $50 million wrongful death lawsuit against Brandy. That issue has yet to be resolved.
Brandy — who’s certainly lost all her pregnancy weight and then some, no doubt related to that little fatal crash on the 405 — poses with Omar Epps’ wife, Keisha, at Keisha’s baby shower.
Also in attendance: Jennifer Morrison.
So folks laughed a bit when former superstar Brandy went from being a recording artist to judging “America’s Got Talent.” Now, after running over someone with her car, she is not doing that anymore.
Sharon Osborne has replaced Brandy as a judge on the show. Wow, Brandy’s star sure fell fast. She got knocked up, fake married, engaged again to an NBA star, dumped, accidentially killed someone and now got fired. I remember when she and Ray J were hot stuff.
Hey maybe she she should go into the porn business like her brother.

The California Highway Patrol has recommended that singer and sitcom star Brandy be prosecuted for a fatal car crash she caused last month. In late December, Brandy was driving on L.A.’s 405 freeway at 65 mph, but she failed to slow down when the car in front of her did. She hit the car, causing a series of accidents that resulted in the death of a 38-year-old married mother of one. There was no evidence of drugs or alcohol involved, and Brandy was not arrested at the scene.
However, today the CHP recommended that Brandy be prosecuted for misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter. If convicted, Brandy could potentially face a year in an L.A. county jail and a fine of $1000, which I’m sure is far, far less punishment than living in Brandy’s head is right now.
