Kim and Khloe Kardashian Hit Out at Stepmother in Deposition

She's a "slippery snake"...
Kim and Khloe Kardashian have both unleashed on their stepmother in a new deposition in their lawsuit against her. As you may recall, the Kardashians sued Ellen Pearson Kardashian, the widow of their father Robert, after she allegedly sold their property, including family photos and writings, to a publishing outlet in January 2013. In the deposition (via Radar Online), Kim and Khloe both acknowledge their dislike for Ellen and say she made poor decisions in regard to her father's alleged diaries.
When asked about her opinion of Ellen, Kim said that she "she is a slippery snake...Selling information on a family, making up lies to benefit herself with the intent to harm others."
She added when asked, "Yeah, I dislike her. I think that she — I don't agree with her decisions as of late. And I didn't agree with her decisions when she wouldn't give us back property or ever since she married my father, I haven't agreed with her decisions. I feel like there was an agenda there — but I don't think about Ellen. I don't spend my time worrying about her, because I try to be a positive person. Everyone is pushed to a limit, and no matter how positive you are, you can look at someone and say, wow, they are a slippery snake, they make awful decisions that are hurtful. I'm not going to try and do the same thing about her or all of this information that I've said about her today would have been in the tabloids, and I could have done exclusives myself, but I choose to try and live a positive life, and I have other things to worry about than Ellen. But because I call her a slippery snake, that is definitely my opinion of her...I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt when they got married, thinking, like, okay, she's trying to push us out, she got married, you know, she has an agenda. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt that maybe she was grieving and have a hard time, but her actions proved otherwise."
Khloe said when asked why the family didn't like Ellen, "We just didn't feel like she was a — a good fit for my dad. They would fight a lot, and they would break up all the time...I dislike what she's done. I don't know her, like, at this moment to say that [whether she dislikes Ellen]. I don't even know if I would know what she looked like if she came in right now. I've kind of blocked her out of my mind."
She continued, "Yeah, I mean, I just — she's just not — I like to focus on positive people….for anyone that loves someone and claims that this is their husband, why would you do — and if you loved them, you love their children, why would you do something that would hurt their children — or especially so many years later, why bring up such — like our father's passing, I don't know if you've ever lost a parent, but any sort it's devastating, especially of something so quickly. Just, I don't understand the timing of it. I don't get why ten years you wait, why all of this. I could just — I thought it was very calculated and cold thing to do, and also like re — it's our father, like let him rest in peace. Like that's not respect in my opinion."
