A transgender model has agreed to drop her assault and battery lawsuit against Khloe Kardashian if the reality TV personality agrees to pay a $150,000 out of court settlement.
Chantal Spears (also known as Ronald Spears) filed the lawsuit in December 2009 alleging that Kardashian assaulted her in front of a nightclub in 2009, and while the case is ongoing, Spears has offered to drop it if Kardashian pays her for "mental and emotional anxiety," according to TMZ.
Spears claims that she approached Kardashian, 28, and her husband of three years Lamar Odom outside of Playhouse nightclub on Hollywood Blvd in Los Angeles, Calif. Dec. 5 and when she told the NBA star that he was "too young to be married," Kardashian struck her.
After the incident, Spears told police that Kardashian "pushed and hit me" which allegedly caused her serious injury.
"All I was telling Lamar Odom is maybe he is too young to get married, and all of a sudden I get this big push from this girl!" Spears previously told TMZ.
Kardashian claims that she was attacked by Spears first and simply pushed her away in self-defense, but Spears claims that she has witnesses to support her claim that Kardashian assaulted her and that when she tried to defend herself, she was hit a second time.
"I tried to get her and she pushed me again! She is in trouble ... because everybody saw her hit me first," Spears said.
In 2009, Kardashian attended her first anger management class with her sister Kim after assaulting her older sister Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick.
Her visit was filmed for Season 4, Episode 2 of the E! reality TV show "Keeping up with the Kardashians" which aired Sunday, December 20, 2009, and during her time at Daybreak Counseling, she was able to determine the root of her anger aimed at Disick.
Kardashian is also being sued for $5 million in a separate class action lawsuit which is targeted toward her and her two sisters for their roles in endorsing the weight loss product QuickTrim.
