Scam victims are all over the world, no matter how famous or smart the person is, or how much money they have. Khloé Kardashian, 36, and her mother Kris Jenner, 65, were duped by a builder when they began construction of their two houses, side by side, on a huge lot in the Hidden Hills in Calabasas. The man took advantage of them and fled with all the money.
“I didn’t trust him,” Khloé said through tears as she spoke to her mother on the phone. “You told me we could trust this company and now we have given them 20 million dollars in advance and they have not started to build anything at all,” said the diva of «Keeping Up with the Kardashians» in the penultimate chapter of the 20 season. The matriarch washed her hands and made it clear that she thought it was good business.
Of the $ 20 million, $ 10 million belonged to Khloé and $ 10 million to Kris. Mother and daughter decided to take the case to court so that the builder does not deceive other people. Despite the scam, the celebrities continued with plans to build their new mansions. In a previous episode of the series, before talking about the scam, Khloé took a first look at the work.
“My mom and I found two lots next to each other, and we are both building the house of our dreams,” reflected the Good American co-founder in a confessional. «They will not end for months and months and months, but I am very happy to be living with my mother. We are neighbors, “he added. Kardashian would have paid US $ 17 million for the land where she plans to live with her daughter True Thompson and your partner Tristan Thompson.
Khloé was scheduled to move into her home in April, but as construction has been delayed for the COVID-19 pandemic and because of the builder’s deception, he continues to live in a rented house. Kardashian sold her Calabasas mansion for $ 15.5 million in November 2020, according to reports. She moved from that place “because I can’t do the expansion I wanted to do for various reasons,” she reflected to the cameras.
