Kim Kardashian Threatens to Sue Mexican Surgeon

By: Vibe / March 14, 2012

If going through a divorce and constant public scrutiny isn’t enough reality star Kim Kardashian may be gearing up for another lawsuit—this time against a plastic surgeon in Mexicali who has used her likeness to promote his plastic surgery business without her permission.

According to TMZ, Dr. Victor Ramirez has used a picture of Kim on a billboard along with the slogan: “No arriesgue su belleza, ni su salud” that translates to: “Don’t risk your beauty or your health.” Kim has garnered the help of her lawyers against Ramirez and his false advert.

TMZ spoke with Dr. Ramirez and asked whether he got permission to use the most famous Kardashian’s image in his advert and he got rather defensive on the subject. “Obviously I did not speak to Kim Kardashian,” Dr. Ramirez said. “I do not have her number.”

If Kim goes through with her lawsuit this could be the actress’ second in less than a year since she sued Old Navy for intentionally using a look-alike in an effort to dupe the public that it was the reality star.– Johnathan Cruse
