Star Magazine has pulled off the impossible: coverage of the Kardashians than actually turns off this attention-crazed family.

The latest issue of the tabloid quotes Charles Kernaghan - the head of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights - as saying the Kris Jenner-led clan employs youths in China to manufacture Kardashian merchandize in unsanitary warehouses.

An investigation has been launched into these "slave labor" like conditions - that reportedly include long work hours, meager wages and uncomfortable temperatures - but there's a  problem:

Kardashians Kover Story

Kernaghan says he was misquoted and tells TMZ there's no proof that the Kardashians are involved in any kind of sweatshop scandal. He's never even been to any of the factories in question.

In light of this admission, along with the magazine cover above, sources say the family is set to move forward with a libel lawsuit against Star. Lawyers believe the tabloid should have to pay for damage caused to the Kardashian brand's reputation and, trust us, we hate to agree with anything this family says or does.

But they may have a point here.

The Kardashians stand accused of using "slave labor" and turning a blind eye to human rights atrocities to produce their multimillion dollar fashion lines.

A human rights group is investigating claims that workers in China - as young as 16 - work in squalor to manufacture merchandise for the famous family.

The labels in question: K-Dash by Kardashian (which Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are all involved with), the Kris Jenner Kollection and ShoeDazzle, according to Star.

The institute for Global Labour and Human Rights has in fact launched an investigation, amidst claims the Kardashians' products are inhumanely produced.

With factories reeking of stench from sewage and temperatures north of 100 degrees, an official from the group says conditions in the area are "horrific."

There are also claims the employees work up to 84 hours a week, earning $1 an hour ... while the Kardashians rake in approximately $65 million a year.

However, a leader of the human rights group quoted in the story implying the Kardashians use "slave labor" says the story is misleading in many ways.

Charles Kernaghan, Executive Director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, says he told Star, "It was a wise idea to wait on the article."

Despite the protests of thousands of well-intentioned people, Kim Kardashian will never leave E!.

But PETA hopes this reality star does leave her fur attire behind, and it will unveil a billboard (below) at the corner of Beverly Boulevard and Sweetzer Avenue in early December urging the professional celebrity to do just that.

Kim Kardashian Billboard

"Kim knows that animals on fur farms are beaten, electrocuted, and often skinned alive. We've explained it to her, and she's watched a video exposé that was filmed inside fur farms," says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. "PETA hopes that the prominent billboard will finally be enough to convince Kim...to divorce herself from fur and say 'I do' to a more compassionate wardrobe."

Khloe Kardashian, of course, has already posed naked on behalf of the organization - and we all know Kim doesn't mind taking off her clothes.

Throw enough money at her, PETA, and she'll throw away her animal-based outfits faster than she threw away her marriage.

Kim Kardashian is suing mad.

The large-breasted professional celebrity has filed a lawsuit against Old Navy in which she claims the company intentionally duped the public with a lookalike (who may be dating Kim's ex!) in one of its commercials.

Making Kardashian especially irate? In an effort to boost publicity, Old Navy has been Tweeting to her account, referencing the similar-looking model. And we all know that NOTHING is more sacred to Kim Kardashian than her Twitter account.

The reality star is reportedly suing for at least $15 million, claiming the ad cost her that amount in damages. How? That's more confounding than the reason for Kim's fame.

Did Kim Kardashian cheat on fiance Kris Humphries with football player Bret Lockett?

Yes, writes In Touch Weekly in its latest issue. No, argues Kim, who is threatening to take legal action against the tabloid for printing such alleged lies.

Kim Kardashian Caught Cheating?!

But Lockett, a safety for the New England Patriots, tells TMZ that he can prove the two carried on an affair.

He says he has phone records, text messages and Anthony Weiner-esque cell phone pics of the reality star. If need be, he's supposedly prepared to present them in court.

Whose side do you take in this escalating disagreement? Think Kim banged Lockett?

Normally, Kim Kardashian loves attention ... but not this kind of attention.

The professional celebrity is PISSED that In Touch Weekly is running a huge cover story claiming she has been cheating on her fiance, Kris Humphries.

They even name her supposed male mistress: NFL player Bret Lockett!

Kim Kardashian Caught Cheating?!

Kinky texts? Wild phone sex? Was Anthony Weiner involved?

Kim says she has never even met or spoken with Lockett ... but in the story Lockett is QUOTED PERSONALLY as saying that Kim pursued him, and that, "I knew this was a game to her ... this is what she does."

Yeah. Kim's rep says she's gonna be suing both In Touch and Bret.

A demand letter from Kim's lawyer has already been sent, threatening legal action and putting In Touch on notice, calling the cheating allegations "are, at a minimum, damaging, defamatory, and an invasion of her privacy."

The tabloid is running the story anyway. Lawyer up, In Touch.

THG POLL: What do you think? Did Kim have an affair?

Kim Kardashian is reportedly very upset that a photo of her was used on the cover of Turkey's edition of Cosmopolitan magazine this month.

Her objections stem from her Armenian heritage.

It is a widely-held belief that Turkey was responsible for acts of genocide against the Armenian people in the early part of the 20th Century.

Kim Kardashian Turkish Cosmo Cover

Kim Kardashian, an Armenian-American who has been vocal about the genocide, did an international photo shoot recently that went to various magazines.

That included several owned by Cosmopolitan, but she didn't know it would end up on the Turkish version of the mag, and she's quite upset about this.

Sources say Cosmo let Kim's people know which international outlets of the magazine would use her picture, but never mentioned Turkey to Kim or her reps.

Kim would not have approved the use of her pic in the Turkish version, according to sources close to her, and it's particularly upsetting this time of year.

April 24, which happens to also be Easter Sunday this year, is the day Armenians commemorate the genocide, and comes just weeks after this release.

The Kardashians have kause for koncern.

Five weeks after they took their debit card off the market because it was associated with dangerously high fees, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Kris have been sued by The Revenue Resource Group, LLC. For $75 million.

The company claims these sisters breached their contract when they pulled out of the aforementioned deal. It's the biggest pulling out scandal Kim has been involved in since November 2007.

Many Kardashians

Following an announcement by the Attorney General of Connecticut, who said he'd consider an investigation into the MasterCard-approved debit card, the siblings dropped out of their deal.

But Revenue Resource Group says they signed a two-year contract and their public bashing of the product has affected the company's bottom line. RRG is seeking $75 million in damages.

Perhaps this will teach the family a lesson about attaching their name to any product that comes calling. But, somehow, we doubt it will.

Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian have been spotted together numerous times over the last few weeks, most recently at the opening for Dash NYC.

But beneath the red carpet smiles and plastic body parties, Life & Style has breaking, utterly contrived news for fans of thees siblings: they hate each other!!!

Down Under Kim

"When Khloé arrived in NYC, Kim wanted nothing more than for the three sisters to hit the town together and have fun," an insider tells the tabloid. "But Khloé said Kim was being a selfish bitch. Kim burst into tears and rushed out of the room."

Forget a pretend Kardashian split... Amber Portwood has three boyfriends AND a baby?!?

Indeed, while Kim claims to be content with her single life, such a contrast with her siblings has apparently created an opportunity for imaginary sources to give fake quotes a riff.
