The Kardashians -- said to be worth $80 million -- are asking a judge to force Robert Kardashian's widow Ellen Pearson to pony up nearly $150,000 in legal fees they’ve incurred in their ongoing courtroom dispute, is exclusively reporting.

In legal documents obtained by Radar, Kris Jenner and the Kardashian daughters have formally asked Judge Mitchell Beckloff to order Ellen Pearson to pay the fees, in connection to the lawsuit the late attorney’s widow filed against the family.

This monetary request DOESN'T include fees in a federal lawsuit the Kardashians filed against Pearson for $500,000 in damages over claims she sold their family property (including photos and diaries) to Bauer Publishing’s In Touch and Life & Style magazines.

Pearson subsequently struck back with a countersuit against the family for defamation of character and other perceived misdeeds.

The Kardashians claim in legal docs they are entitled to recover the legal fees since they partially prevailed in a anti-SLAAP motion, which saw Pearson's lawsuit reduced to a single count of libel, the only cause of action she can proceed to trial with.

A hearing has been scheduled for May 5 to determine if Pearson will be forced to pay her late husband's family legal bills.
