Kim Kardashian’s former business partner has blamed the reality star for “ruining” his life.
43-year-old David Liebensohn is a software developer who previously worked on Kimoji and is believed to be the original author of the Kardashian-inspired line of emojis, DailyMail.com reported.
While the app allegedly generated thousands of downloads per second and generated millions worth of income, David claims that the socialite and her attorney, Marty Singer, gave him and the other participating developers no option but to walk away from the deal and lose a fortune in the process.
“If I get hit by a bus tomorrow, I want everyone to know the truth about the Kardashians. I refuse to be gagged,” the man told DailyMail.com.
Previously, in 2019, Liebensohn sued the KUWTK star for $300 million claiming she ran away with the earnings after stealing his idea.
Kim’s lawyers, however, pointed out that the developer willingly signed documents in which he waived all rights to Kimoji, leaving Kim in total control of the app without any further obligations to the developers.
According to Liebensohn, he has since the deal-gone-south lost his home and his $2 million business. He was also forced to withdraw his lawsuit because he couldn’t keep up with the legal fees.
With barely anything left to lose, the 43-year-old decided to launch the website ‘www.kimkardashianruinedmylife.com’ in an attempt to share his truth about his financial ruin.
“I thought people might want to know about this story, what have I got to lose right now by telling it? I’m literally sleeping in my car. I might as well put all this in a story that people can maybe make some sense out of, and see what happens,” he added.
“I lost my wife, my kids blamed me, they had a rough time at school, they were teenagers at the time and idolized that family – Kim and her sisters – then this happened and it destroyed us.”
Speaking of the problematic deal, Liebensohn revealed that he and Kim initially agreed on splitting the profits from Kimoji and another app, CensorGram.
Things went south, however, when one of his partners leaked private information, angering Kim in the process and making her back out of the deal.
“Without my knowledge, one of our partners took a picture of some words on a page that Kim used in our CensorGram app. No user handle or private info. Just a little clip of a screenshot to brag. Privately between him and a friend,” Liebensohn shared.
“This friend was jealous and actually had a friend in Chicago that knew someone in Kim and Kanye’s world. They intentionally sent the screenshot in the hope it would interfere. It did. Kim backed out and threatened to sue us for $5 million.”
The distraught developer went on to claim that Singer then sent him a letter threatening legal action unless he and his partners agreed to hand the reins to Kardashian and walk away from the deal.
