Khloe Kardashian sued by transgender woman

Khloe Kardashian is being sued for assault.

Transgender woman Chantel Spears - formerly Ronald Spears - claims the reality TV star "violently" attacked her outside a Hollywood nightclub on December 5 2009.

Papers filed by Chantal state that after the incident the victim needed medical care and suffered from "severe mental anguish" and also claimed Khloe struck her "in and about her body".

However, no arrests were made at the time of the incident.

Chantel - who is seeking unspecified damages - says the alleged assault happened after she made a comment to Khloe's husband Lamar Odom.

She told website TMZ: "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."

Although Khloe's spokesperson didn't comment, her friends insist she did nothing wrong.

One told Us Weekly magazine: 'This was two years ago and Khloe did nothing. This person shoved Khloe and she pushed them off. This person just wants to jump on the bandwagon.'
