Jonathan Jaxson and Kim Kardashian Reach A Legal Agreement

Jonathan Jaxson has reached an agreement with Kim Kardashian that will bring and end (we hope) to the drama surrounding these two since last November.  If you were following me on twitter then, you may remember me freaking out about apparent suicidal tweets from Jaxson, who claims to have been Kardashian’s publicist.  It all began when Jaxson made an appearance on the Elvis Duran Morning Show  making allegations regarding Kim K’s farce of wedding.  Then Kim K decided to sue but not before I posted this blog with all sorts of tea on Kim K and Reggie Bush.   Next came Jaxson’s dramatic blogs and a video in an apparent suicide attempt.   THEN we saw Jaxson in a hospital room and I blogged about his past issues with Perez Hilton where he got into a legal battle with Perez over some sexual thing.

During all this time Jaxson would tweet and blog things and then pull them down  within hours. He was posting pieces of his autobiography on his website, and then pulling them down. He started taking pre-orders (money) from people for a book that was not yet written. There were dramatic posts that would come down hours after going up. It was a long journey into Crazyville, and I was blogging the whole thing. Jaxson blocked me on twitter and I lost interest figuring it would all work out eventually.

Click through the jump to read about the resolution.

Well eventually has finally arrived. Jaxson and Kardashian have reached a confidential agreement just like he did with Perez Hilton a few years back. As part of the agreement, he placed an apology on his website that read:




“I wanted to apologize publicly to Kim Kardashian for any confusion that I may have caused by the personal statements I made recently regarding Kim Kardashian. I would like to further clarify that I did not have any first hand knowledge of Kim’s relationship with Kris. Any statement I made regarding Kim and her marriage was my opinion only and was not intended to imply first hand knowledge of Kim’s thoughts and feelings.”


As of this writing, Jaxson’s entire website has disappeared. He did tweet the following on the issue:

Sometimes you have to do what you have to do in order to continue living a drama free life and one without bullies. I don’t care how I look!

Jonathan Jaxson and Kim Zolciak’s Rollercoaster Relationship

Jonathan Jaxson with Kim Zolciak

I’ve got the tea on Jonathan Jaxson and Kim Zolciak, y’all. If you haven’t been following the drama, you can click here, here, here and here to catch up!  Back in February of 2009, a couple of lawsuits were filed between Jaxson and Zolciak. Here’s what happened. Shortly after RHOA season one ended in November of 2008, Jaxson approached Zolciak about doing some PR work for her.  At the time, Kim was semi-shacked up at her place with Lee Najjar, aka Big Poppa, who was bankrolling her.

Kim entered into a six month agreement with Jaxson to do PR work for her. She paid the five grand for three months and then there was a falling out and Kim stopped paying.  Now my math says that if they met in November and even if November was the first month of payment, filing a lawsuit in February is premature. Kim probably had five thousand dollars in her purse at the time so what Jaxson did next was pretty foolish or simply another stunt on his part to draw some attention to himself.

Don’t miss the tea after the break!

Before he filed the lawsuit, Jaxson went onto a website he had made for Kim, KimZolciakonline (no longer in existence) and jacked it to read, “Site down to due non-payment. This site will be ‘non active’ due to failure of payment and a pending lawsuit against Ms. Zolciak.”  It’s really not a wise business move to go straight to public humiliation when dealing with a client. Especially, a PR client. Supposedly, Kim threatened Jaxson when he requested payment and that is what set him off. I’m not sure I am buying that, but I would not be surprised if Big Poppa was not the one to cut him off in perhaps a not so nice fashion.

So off to court they went and Jaxson had to restore the website which he claims is his, and probably was because Kim already had www.kimzolciak.com .  A gag order was placed, just like the one Jaxson had with Perez Hilton and he was unable to discuss the case.  The interesting thing about the gag order Zolciak’s attorneys requested was this little tidbit:

There is to be no physical, electronic or verbal contact between the parties, including any contact by third parties acting on behalf of the parties to this case. The Court will consider contact by Lee Najjar to be contact by the Petitioner.

So it is sounds like Big Poppa did have a little talk with Jaxson about the matter.

During this war of words, Jaxson gave a vitriolic interview to Gaysocialites which is not longer in their archives. Here is a snippet of that interview that sort of sums things up.

Jaxson also says he plans to pull the rug from under Zolciak taking credit for helping her build her success to an “international level.”
Kim issued this brief statement to us: “Jonathan Jaxson ake Jonathan Lewandowski is not my rep, my manager, my publicist or affiliated with me any way shape or form [sic].” Jonathan also tells us she went on Fox Tuesday morning claiming that the two had never worked together.

To that Jonathan replied: “Kim Zolciak’s claims that I have never worked with her are as fake as her wigs. I have all proof stating otherwise,” Jason [sic] said. “I have a great gift and I have risen Kim’s spotlight to an international level. She would have never been involved in some of her biggest solo career moves without me.”

Jonathan Jaxson and Kim Zolciak

In September of 2009, Jaxson and Zolciak appeared on V-103 saying that they had kissed and made up. Jaxson was indeed out and about promoting Tardy for the Party with Kim in advance of the song’s debut on itunes. It was Kim and her gay, together again, all rainbows and unicorns.

And then a matter of days later, Jaxson went on B98.5 and trash talked Kim referring to her spending like crazy, being a former stripper named Barbie at the Cheetah, and spoiling an upcoming episode of RHOA by letting out that Big Poppa gave Kim a big ring. He also announced he was resigning as Kim’s publicist. DRAMA LLAMA! 

It seems to me that Jonathan Jaxson has a history of being sued by celebrities. This is not his first trip to the celebrity rodeo courtroom but he appears to be all hat and no cattle.

What do you think? Are you sick of hearing about JJ here? It was the dramatic gay hissy fit that lured me in. I can’t help it, I love a good gay hissyfit. :)  Leave a comment and please follow me on twitter! ~@tamaratattles

Jonathan Jaxson’s Past with Perez Hilton



Jonathan Jaxson tweeted this picture from his hospital bed after allegedly trying to kill himself.
Another publicity stunt?

This is part four of four posts regarding this topic. Please read here, here and here  to get caught up.

So just who is Jonathan Jaxson? Perhaps Kim Kardashian should have asked herself that question before she did business with him in the first place.  Apparently, while he was allegedly working for Kim K as a PR rep, he was also involved in a lawsuit with Perez Hilton. Check out this info from The Smoking Gun.

APRIL 9 (2008)–Perez Hilton claims that a Florida blogger slandered him by claiming the online gossip columnist solicited sexual favors in exchange for help promoting the man’s nascent web site. In an April 8 Los Angeles Superior Court complaint, Hilton (real name: Mario Lavandeira) alleges that Jonathan Lewandowski recently told reporters that he was manipulated into sending sexually explicit videos to Lavandeira, and that the pair had sex and dated. Lavandeira, 30, charges that these claims are false, adding that Lewandowski (who uses the handle Jonathan Jaxson when blogging) has also invaded his privacy by posting his cell phone number online. In his complaint, an excerpt of which you’ll find below, Lavandeira contends that, as a result of the 24-year-old Lewandowski’s actions, he has ‘suffered loss of his reputation, shame and mortification’ and ‘mental anguish.’ Lavandeira’s lawsuit does not specify monetary damages, but seeks general, special, and punitive damages, and the reimbursement of legal fees from Lewandowski. Hilton declined comment about the lawsuit, while Lewandowski, who had yet to see the complaint, told TSG that he found it ‘hilarious’ that Lavandeira was suing him. ‘I have not lied about him. What Perez did to me was hurtful,’ he said.

The lawsuit was a result of this article that appear on page 6 of the New York Post in February of 2008.

MARIO Lavandeira – better known as online gossip “Perez Hilton” – encouraged a handsome young blogger to send sex tapes of himself while he was making promises of promotion for the blogger’s own fledgling Web site.
Jonathan Jaxson – a former publicist and founder of gossip site JJ’s Dirt – told Page Six he sent Lavandeira sexually explicit videos of himself with the hope of Lavandeira’s help, which never materialized.

More juicy details after the jump…

“He would tell me he would give me stories for my blog,” Jaxson, 24, said of Lavandeira, 29. “He used me.”

We’ve obtained pages of lengthy AOL Instant-Messenger chats between Jaxson and “Perez Hilton,” who has risen to fame with his Web site, where he doodles on photos of celebrities accompanied by scathing insults.  

The New York Times ran a gushing puff piece on “Perez” Tuesday, reporting he gets 2.8 million visitors a month and is in talks with Warner Music for his own label because he has such a great ear for new music.
In an exchange from Sept. 1, 2007, Lavandeira told Jaxson, “you should totally make a sex tape . . . (but not with me).” Jaxson wrote back, “I will have to make one on here for you tomorrow and e-mail it to you.” Lavandeira responded, “Hot! Do it now!”
The next afternoon, Lavandeira asked Jaxson, “When are you sending me that video you promised?” Jaxson responded, “If you do a phone blog with me for my blog . . . as if I am cold calling you in attempt to get advice for my blog. You can be totally rude. I don’t want others to know we talk.”
The next day, Lavandeira asked again, “Where is that video?”
Jaxson told Page Six he sent Lavandeira videos of himself masturbating and other forms of “sex videos,” but said he only met Lavandeira in person three times – once in Florida and twice in New York.
“I fell in love with Perez. I thought he had a huge heart . . . but he’s just a [bleep]hole,” Jaxson told us. “We started working together and communicating on how to make my blog bigger. Then it got more personal and intimate.”
JJ working it at age 18

Lavendeira had no comment.

Well that is very interesting. At the very least this is not the first time a “celebrity” has had cause to sue ole JJ.  On the other hand it is Perez.  It does sound like something he would do.  According to the lawsuit published at The Smoking Gun, Jonathan Jaxson also published Perez Hilton’s phone number on his blog and encouraged his followers to call him by posting the following.

I can’t stand Perez Hilton and the way he has hurt me and millions of others, because of this I think you should call him and let him know how you feel. Since he gives out everyone’s phone number, here is his mobile XXX XXX XXXX, Happy late Birthday Perez!

Niiiiiice.
Now let’s look at this alleged  book that he was shopping for a publisher for and then wanted to sell online suddenly coming up with a January 2012 release date with pre-sales that began the week of his “suicide” attempt.  Why do you presell a text file? Either it is ready or it isn’t. On his website he briefly had up some sample “chapters”. Well, they were titled as chapters but seem to be a string of short essays. In fact, they read almost exactly like the beginning of this article from Creative Loafing  from nine years ago except he only includes the biography and none of the red flags the article mentions.

Jaxson’s story gets cloudy when it comes to corroborating some of his claims. While Jaffe confirms that Jaxson was on “Ricki” three times (he says five times), his appearance on other shows are difficult to verify since they’re no longer on the air. Asked to produce tapes of his appearances, Jaxson says the tapes are either broken or were lost in a house fire last year.
 
On Jaxson’s website he boasts that his show “The Edge” won a Southern Regional Emmy Award for “Best Cable TV Host.” But that category doesn’t exist, says Tomi Funderburke, executive administrator for the Atlanta chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which oversees the awards.

Clearly Jonathan Wayne Lewandowski had a knack for telling lies to the media from a very early age. But wait! There is some ammo for JJ’s side as well.  Back in 2009, according to Gawker Jonathan Jaxson sued Perez Hilton for violating the terms of an agreement reached where both JJ and PH agreed not to discuss each other in public.  PH was not allowed to blog about JJ but he did. This is when Perez Hilton admitted that he had not been writing his own blog for years. It’s common knowledge now that PH was not actually blogging anything and in this instance he blamed his sister for writing the blog. It is well know that many ghost writers has come and gone from the PH site because apparently it is a difficult gig and PH is well, an asshole.  That agreement would imply that the court found some credence to what JJ said about the sex tapes and decided to rule that both parties would be precluded from discussing the other in the future.
And then there was the time he was a publicist for Kim Zolciak. But that’s a whole nuther talk show, or blog post as the case may be. There is a lot more to tell you.

Is Jonathan Jaxson Suicidal? (Updated)

UPDATE: 11/19/11 More updates from twitter this morning. Make of them what you will.

UPDATE: 11/18/2011 6:30 We have another tweet.  Apparently from the hospital but who really knows at this point?  If he is on a 72 hour mental health observation, he should be getting out tonight or tomorrow.  There is still something not quite right about this whole thing.  I mean would your mother be tweeting pictures of you in the hospital two days after you tried to committ suicide?
Could your mother ever tweet a picture from a phone? #suspicious
UDPATE: 11/18/2011 5pmSomeone claiming to be JJ’s Mother posted this tweet late this afternoon.
Jonathan Jaxson
After someone deleted Jon’s account, we got it back up and he wanted me to say thank you to all for the warm wishes as he heals. -Jon’s Mom

Kim Kardashian’s ex-publicist, Jonathan Jaxson had his twitter account hacked last night. It appeared he got it back, but tonight he is posting suicidal tweets! I am not sure what to think here.  He’s made his living off of publicity stunts. Is this real or fake? And if it is real is there anything that can be done in these situations?  Twitter is full of weirdness and drama. I have no idea what one does in these situations. Some of you seasoned tweeters and bloggers are going to have to coach me on this situation. I can only hope either he is hacked or trying to pull a terribly unfunny publicity stunt.

For those of you asking about the back story, please read here  and  then here.

I’m rather suspect of this whole thing. The whole comment by his “friend” that “he left all this up” seems a weird thing to type when you only have 140 characters to explain things.  Also, last night JJ linked to a blog that supported him that was created yesterday, basically repeated all his “facts” and could have been better written by a trained monkey. That struck me as odd too. Not throwing any shade, just saying there is something off about this whole thing.

Kim Kardashian to Sue Ex-Publicist

Jonathan Jaxson and Kim Kardashian mugging for the camera

As a blogger, it is interesting to see what you guys find to be the most interesting read. The blog I did recapping the fight between Nene and Sheree  on episode one of RHOA is by far my most read story. I’d like to think that my writing was particularly good that day, but despite having the title lifted by another blogger, there really wasn’t anything outstanding about the writing. There probably never will be anything outstanding in the writing of my recaps because they are written late on Sunday evenings while trying to watch the show and WWHL. Not my best work. So why is it the most viewed blog entry? The picture of Nene’s teeth or lack of teeth as the case may be.

Personally, I was rather proud of my blog about Jonathan Jackson’s interview with Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.  This guy was on the show spillin’ tea and throwing shade all over Kim Kardashian at a time when Kim K was in Atlanta and I was giving her some attention on my blog whether she needed it or not. Although he threw out a tidbit here and there about the infamous Kim Kardashian sex tape on which her infamy is based, the nature of Kim K’s relationship with Kayne West and even passing comment about his work with Kim Zolciak  when she was a stripper and living off of Big Poppa, I was focused on his comments regarding Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring.  Even with all that Atlanta gossip, the post was met with a rather lukewarm number of page views. I even whined a bit over at LynnNChicago’s blog, one of my new favorite places to hang out online, when someone mentioned Jonathan Jaxson over, that I posted that story days ago as if her readers were somehow magically supposed to know about the post here. Why yes, I am sort of obsessed with my blog at the moment, it’s new I promise to chill about it later. Maybe.

So last night as I was obsessively stalking Jonathan Jaxson trying to get him to notice me like Jill Zarin and a B-list celebrity reading my twitter feed, I just happened to notice Jonathan Jaxson saying that he was in Atlanta (yay relevance to this blog!) and that he received a call from TMZ  which is usually not a good thing for a publicist. This morning I wake up to find…

Kim Kardashian has hired a lawyer to sue Jonathan Jaxson for damage to her reputation. Read that sentence again. Kim Kardashian wants Jonathan Jaxson to pay her $200,000 for marring her good name in the public arena. Do you have that confused look on your face like you get when someone in the room farts at a formal function and you are looking around sort of aghast? Me too.

As both you you who read my most excellent blog on this (see what I did there?) on November 10th know, Jaxson, a former PR rep for Kardashian, didn’t say anything defamatory. He said Kim was more than friends with Kayne West. Shocking. Kim Kardashian and a famous black guy hooking up? How dare he go there? He was asked that question because Wendy Williams asked Amber Rose about it on her talk show that week. Amber Rose said the same thing and her word can be considered expert testimony in a court of law when it comes to who Kayne West is making the beast with two backs with. Trust.  Defamation? I think not. He said Kim K knew about her sex tape coming out before it happened. Surprising? Hardly.



Kim K wearing the ring and practicing her shocked face

 I was most intrigued when he said that in 2007, Kim K wanted to start a rumor that she was engaged to Reggie Bush. Jaxson said she used a ring she already owned that looks a helluva lot like the “engagement ring” Kris Humphries gave her and they leaked the story to a gossip magazine. Well, I wasn’t paying Kim K any attention in 2007 but Internet archives indicate there was such a rumor and there was such a ring. The ring by the way can be seen here both in 2007 and 2011. Guess where that link goes? As it turns out, this isn’t really news either. Several gossip sites, have pictures of Kim wearing the ring in 2007, 2009, and even during a taping of Keeping Up With the Kardashians in 2011 before the engagement even “happened”.  Jaxson merely told us where the ring came from. You WILL read that blog entry, dammit.

Now sure, Jaxson could be a lying liar who lies. He could be, but it’s not likely. He has pictures, and video blogs and cashed checks and emails between him and Kim K which he posted on his site, here.

Marty Singer, Pit Bull

So enter Marty Singer, asshole lawyer to the stars (forgive the redundancy) whose website describes him as “One whose job is to dive into the gutter of a litigious, capitalistic society and win at all costs. In other words, a specialist: one of the pit bulls of L.A. law” to rescue our fair maiden.  This self-described pit bull gives the following statement to TMZ about Jaxson  “Everything that he is saying is false and nonsense … This guy is in it to promote himself for his 15 mins of fame.” Um DUH!. The guy trying to get a publisher for a book called “Don’t You Know Who I am Yet?”.  It’s an autobiography on his dire attempts to get his 15 minutes of fame and what happened to him when he got it.  So yes, counselor Singer, Jaxson is still working that fifteen minutes, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t telling the truth as he lived it. And the irony of that particular statement being made on behalf of Kim Kardashian is pretty hysterical. Jaxson has documentation proving where he was and who he was with while he worked with Kim Kardashian.  Kim K must be quaking in her boots about what he is saving for his book because she wasn’t back from Atlanta for a day before Kris Jenner was sending her to meet with Singer.

I noticed Singer was not quoted as saying that Kardashian and Jaxson had a confidentiality agreement. No, that was “sources close to Kim” which is TMZ speak for Kim herself.  I hope she can lay hands on this imaginary agreement or she is throwing  money away on her pit bull attorney. I also hope Jaxson sues for court costs.

Jonathan Jaxson’s full statement regarding the TMZ story can be read here. Pre-Sales for Jaxon’s autobiography, Don’t You Know Who I Am Yet?  will start Monday, November 14, 2011 for a January 2, 2012 release. It is not a book about the Kardashians. I have read the excerpts and Jaxson has an intriguing, gripping story that is worth a read.

What Kim Kardashian’s Ex Publicist Jonathan Jaxson Said About The Ring

Photo Credit: OK Magazine
I’d like to suggest you play a youtube of Kim Zolciak’s song  The Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing while reading this one.
In the latest SHOCKING! KARDASHIAN! NEWS!, Kim’s former publicist, Jonathon Jaxson was on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show yesterday making some juicy claims about Kim’s shady past.  Jaxson was on to promote his upcoming tell all book, Don’t You Know Who I am Yet?.  Click the link to read an excerpt.
According to Jaxson, Kim has been using her men for publicity since way back in the Reggie Bush days.  And I am not just talking about trying to bag all the rich and famous black guys she could be seen out with in public (or on a sex tape) . Allegedly, Kim and Jaxson set up a situation with the encouragement of Mama Kardashian back in 2007 to make it appear that Reggie Bush had proposed. Kim used a very large engagement ring that was given to her by a family member to set up the drama. Jaxson leaked the story to OK magazine and then Kim set about coyly denying it.  Reggie Bush had no idea Kim had staged the entire thing for publicity.  Eventually, these sorts of antics got back to Reggie and that played a major role in their breakup.
Are you with me so far? Good. So flash forward to 2011 and Kim’s big engagement. Remember when Kris Jenner had to meet the Brinks truck  at Dash to get the ring that Kris Humphries had allegedly bought for Kim? Yeah, none of that ever happened. Remember the ring Kim used to pretend to be engaged to Reggie? Yep. Same ring.  Kim loved the ring that she already had and wanted to use that. So that would mean that Kim and everyone else knew about the proposal ahead of time because she supplied the ring. Wow. Just wow.  Also, remember how TMZ reported that there was a clause in the prenup saying Kim gets to keep the ring and even said something about Kim paying Kris back for it? I found all of that very odd and it still doesn’t make sense to me. In any legitimate marriage, personal items like jewelry are off the table in a divorce situation.  Did Kris actually buy the ring from Kim and then give it back to her? Would Kim really try to make money off her fiancée rather than just giving him the ring to give back to her?  Just how money hungry is this chick?

UPDATE: Mediatake.com has posted this side by side picture of the ring.

Guess who this Jonathan Jaxson dude also worked with?  Kim Zolciak that’s who.  And he let out some scoop on her as well. Stay tuned. J
