As we first reported, the dueling cases might not even get to trial: The Kardashian clan has been ordered to sit down and attempt to settle the original lawsuit between them and Ellen, which alleged she had no right to sell details from their father's diaries, a journal that contained a slew of juicy allegations against Jenner, 57, including that she once beat her children.
