NEW YORK — Kim Kardashian West is suing an online media outlet, saying she was wrongly portrayed as a liar and thief after she was attacked in Paris.

The lawsuit in Manhattan federal court seeks unspecified damages from MediaTakeOut.com. It says Kardashian West was victimized a second time when the website reported that she faked the robbery and lied about the assault.
