The Kardashians have maxed out their good will

More than a month after pulling out of a debit card venture that had attracted nothing but negative attention, the company that licensed Kim, Kourtney and Khlo's images has sued the sisters, mom Kris Jenner and their company Dash Dolls for $75 million, claiming they breached their contract by abruptly terminating the deal.

Revenue Resource Group's complaint, filed Thursday in Fresno, Calif. and obtained by TMZ, states that the Kardashians had a two-year contract and that RRG has been weathering a bad PR storm since the E! stars pulled out.

And why did they do that again?

Upon its launch in November, the Kardashian Prepaid MasterCard was immediately criticized for harboring hefty hidden fees to activate, replace, etc. Consumers Union, which publishes Consumer Reports, dissed the card, and the Connecticut Attorney General's Office demanded further disclosure from card issuer University National Bank, accusing the Kardashians of "marketing a dangerous financial fantasty."

Not wanting to be linked to the alleged shadiness any further, the Kardashians' attorney sent a notice of termination letter to RRG on Nov. 29. Consumer Union issued a statement applauding the move. And it seemed as if the controversy had blown over...

But not everyone was applauding.

Team Kardashian is not commenting on the lawsuit at this time. A case management hearing has been called for May 2.
