Kim Kardashian and her family are taking the claims that some of their high end fashion products are made in Chinese sweatshops "very seriously," has exclusively learned.

Kim, Kourtney and Khloe reacted swiftly to the news about the situation. 

"This is the first we are hearing about it and take it very seriously as we would never condone this," their high powered rep Jill Fritzo exclusively told on behalf of the Kardashians. "We are presently investigating the situation."

As Star revealed in their investigation, the famous family, who earned a reported $65 million last year, has products that are made in areas of China known for horrific working conditions.

And, while the Kardashians are involved with many fine consumer products in the fashion, beauty, fragrance, health and lifestyle industries that are not part of this investigation, there are several brands that are coming under fire.

Items in the family’s high-end K-Dash by Kardashian label and the Kris Jenner Kollection — sold on the home-shopping television network QVC — and ShoeDazzle, a company that Kim cofounded and endorses, are all manufactured in areas of China where government regulations are often ignored and workers are subject to inhumane conditions." has reached out to QVC and for comment but calls have not been returned.

The allegations about Kardashian products in this post have nothing to do with their products sold at Sears.
