Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick are being sued for $40 million for promoting luxe prizes that are allegedly part of a fake lottery scam on Instagram. 

According to the class action lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the reality TV stars created a lottery where people entered contests with an alleged promise of winning items such as first-class tickets to Los Angeles, a three-night stay in Beverly Hills and even US100,000.

Sources close to Curated Businesses, the Australian company that organises the lotteries, told TMZ Thursday that there have been legitimate winners and they have the paperwork to prove it.

However, the plaintiffs claim in the lawsuit that Kardashian, 41, Disick, 39, and Curated Businesses organised the contests to allegedly sell the personal information of participants to advertisers, according to TMZ.

They claim they have been “invaded by hundreds of advertisers, some of which are soliciting the Plaintiffs with potentially offensive and unwanted content,” per the lawsuit.

Disick is allegedly the main organiser of the lotteries and celebrities like Kardashian, her family members Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and Kylie Jenner have helped promote it to their millions of followers on Instagram.

However, Kardashian and Disick are the only ones named in the suit, according to TMZ.

The plaintiffs are reportedly seeking $20 million from each defendant.

On its website, the Australian-based company explained how its process works in its “Frequently Asked Questions” section. It also has a list of campaign winners from 2019 to 2022 on one of its landing pages.

Under the question “How is the winner selected?,” Curated Businesses responds, “We engage the services of a third party facilitator to conduct a random draw of all eligible entrants.

“They are Australian government approved and compliant. As required by Australian law, we also engage the services of (a) fully qualified independent scrutineer to oversee the random draw.”
