Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick are each being sued for $20 million for promoting a fake lottery scam.

According to TMZ, people who entered the contest could potentially win high-end prizes like a $100,000 cash prize, first-class tickets to Los Angeles, and a three-night stay in Beverly Hills. Disick—who is alleged as the main organizer—worked with the Australian company, Curated Businesses, to set up the lottery.

However, those who participated in the contest now claim that the 2020 lottery was a scam and used to sell their personal information to advertisers. The filing says that participants have been “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.

“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,” the lawsuit says.

Disick and Kim are the only celebrities names in the lawsuit, as well as Curated Businesses.
