One of Khloe Kardashian’s model’s is taking her to court!

Reportedly, reality star Khloe Kardashian’s fashion brand Good American is being sued for more than $100,000 by a model who accused the company for refusing to pay her on time. Jourdan Whitehead claims she was supposed to be paid $3,500 for the one day shoot she completed on November 17, 2021. She alleged the paycheck was supposed to arrive by December 10, 2021 but she was not compensated until March 11, 2022.  Jourdan Whitehead, who listed herself in the filing as a “professional actor,” is suing the brand, founded in 2016, for a late fee.

Whitehead shared her entitlement to a late payment penalty under California Labor Code 203 due to Khloe Kardashian’s clothing line’s “failure to timely pay [her] her wages was willful in that [Good American] was required to make timely payment, were able to do so, but chose not to do so.”

According to reports, the legal documents state:

“Labor Code section 203 provides that upon an employer’s failure to make timely payment of wages, the employee’s wages shall continue as a penalty until paid or for a period of up to 30 days from the time the wages came due, whichever period is due.”

Whitehead says she is owed an “award of penalties in the amount of $105,000.00, which is [her] daily rate multiplied by 30 days,” because she was compensated more than a month after he expected pay date. She is also seeking to have Good American pay for her lawyer fees and other related legal costs. In the past, Kardashian admitted that the fashion line came from her feeling “excluded” during her life when it came to fashion based on her size. The 38-year-old said:

“We started having a conversation about clothes and how I felt excluded my whole life. I’ve fluctuated. At my largest, I was a 14 or 16—which, by the way, is totally standard in the U.S.”

The mother of two, who she shares with NBA star Tristan Thompson, continued:

“I  always felt excluded from my own family—not by them. On shopping trips, I couldn’t shop where they shopped. I’d be indirectly told by brands that their clothes weren’t for me because they didn’t produce a dress in my size.”

She added:

“We built Good American always keeping representation and inclusivity at its core. It wasn’t a fad that we were trying to follow,’ she continued to say also revealing that the company had walked away from many ‘lucrative deals because they weren’t willing to carry the full size range.We didn’t need another denim brand in the world. We needed inclusivity. We needed people to feel represented.”
