Rob Delaney, Plaintiff in Kardashian Suit: "I'm Against Frivolous Lawsuits, Of Course"

In an interview with MTV News, comedian Rob Delaney defends his lawsuit against newly-divorced Kim Kardashian (plus Ryan Seacrest, E!, and Comcast): "I'm against frivolous lawsuits, of course, so it took something deadly serious for me to come out of the woodwork and mount this case," he said.

He continues: "In America, you can kind of do whatever you want with the law, you know. I mean Michele Bachmann's a lawyer...so there's a tradition here that I feel supports me. So I think the Supreme Court, for example, would be behind me, I'm confident."

Similar to what he told the Voice earlier this week: "I'm representing myself and the people of the United States of America if they'll have me. I went to the O.W. Coburn School of Law and then I went to Oral Roberts University. Both are the same schools that tax attorney and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann went to. At those schools we learned that you can use the law for whatever you want."

MTV is weirdly serious and pro-Kardashian about this whole thing, right? Look at that headline: "Rob Delaney Does Not Rule Out His Lawsuit To Be A PR Stunt." Oh! And the deck? "Comedian Delaney talks more on his ridiculous lawsuit again Kim Kardashian."

To recap: Delaney is suing Kardashian and her corporate handlers for $18 million, the amount of profit she made from the endless string of wedding-related programming, for subjecting the country to her 72-day sham marriage and divorce. He's doing it for you, America!

This law suit is not going to happen..I don't even think its funny wasting tax payers money...No one knows what happen to their marriage and for people to act like this is like the pot calling the kettle black.

Yeah! Go Delaney! Marrying for money is one thing but only being able to stand 72 days is another thing. If you're gonna marry for profit (personally I find it horrible) it doesn't make it any less of a commitment than 'til death to us part' (unless they want to murder you or something) Surely she can place some of that hard earned (haha) cash into some marriage counselling. 

But then all I know about Kardashian is that she is on MTV for some reality tv show and is divorcing this guy after a short amount of time.

rob delaney is hilarious.  if you understand his humor, you know this isn't just a desperate attempt for attention.. it's his way of satirizing the divorce and the public's reaction to it.
