Insiders told TMZ that Kim Kardashian’s insurance has paid out on an accident from 2014 on the Sunset Strip and that Kim will not have to pay for damages out of pocket.
The lawsuit filed by Rafael Linares was seeking unspecified damages from the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
Linares claimed in court documents that he ‘sustained personal injuries which caused and will continue to cause pain, discomfort, and physical disability’. He was seeking financial compensation for past and future medical expenses and reimbursement for the repair of his vehicle. As well as money for the costs associated with the ‘loss of use’ of his vehicle.
The reality star was driving her Merecdes G Wagon along Sunset Boulevard and was turning left at an intersection when the collision occurred.
An eyewitness said the other driver was going in the opposite direction and continued driving straight through the intersection after allegedly indicating a right turn, according to Daily Mail.
Both vehicles appeared to suffer minor damage and no tickets were issued by authorities. The mother of two and the man went to the nearby Beverly Hills Hotel where they exchanged information and eventually hugged it out.
