Khloe Kardashian says her actions were 'reasonably necessary' during fight with transgender woman

Kardashian: trans assault was ‘self-defense’
03 February 2012

Khloe Kardashian has spoken for the first time about her alleged assault of a transgender woman, claiming she acted in self-defense.

The US reality TV star has filed a response to the L.A. County Superior Court claiming that trans woman Chantal Spears had provoked the assault, reported celebrity gossip website TMZ.

She added that her actions were 'reasonably necessary for her self-defense and safety.'

Spears sued Kardashian last December, two years after a confrontation outside the Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood.

According to Spears, Kardashain violently struck her, causing serious injuries and leaving her in fear of her life and well-being.

The incident occurred after Spears told Kardashian's husband, basketball player Lamar Odom, that he was 'too young to be married'.

Last month, rumors were spread by the late Robert Kardashian's ex-wife Jan Ashley that Khloe was not his biological daughter. Khloe has denied the claims.
