KIM KARDASHIAN OFFICIALLY THREATENS TO SUE OVER CHEATING ALLEGATIONS: KIM KARDASHIAN has officially threatened to sue New England Patriots safety BRET LOCKETT if he doesn't stop saying he hooked it up with Kim and take everything he's said back.

Kim's attorney sent a letter to Bret's rep saying, quote, "To put it very plainly and clearly, and as Mr. Lockett knows, there is not now, and never has been such a relationship. Ms. Kardashian does not know and has never even met Mr. Lockett."

In other Kim K. news ...she isn't just trying to protect her reputation, she's trying to protect her fortune from fiance Kris Humphries. Kim is putting the finishing touches on a prenup with the help of her mother, according to "Us Weekly". As for specifics, their insider says, "Kim's Beverly Hills home and all of her assets are protected. She keeps anything she earns during the marriage. He does not receive anything if the marriage fails."

The groom-to-be, who makes $3.2 million a year playing for the New Jersey Nets, doesn't seem to have a problem with the agreement.

THERE APPEARS TO BE A LEANN RIMES SEX TAPE!!!:According to the not-always-reliable "Star", there's a LEANN RIMES sex tape floating around that was filmed a couple of years ago when she was still married to Dean Sheremet.

There's no word who has possession of it, but it's not LeAnn because according to reports, she's doing everything she can to stop it from coming out. Dean isn't exactly denying the tape exists, telling "Star", quote, "Things like this happen. We were married for eight years, we did a lot of [stuff]!" LeAnn, however, is issuing a public denial through her spokesperson who said, quote, "LeAnn has absolutely never filmed a video having sex."

As far as the naughty content of the tape ...seems like Dean was mostly manning the camera and LeAnn was the star. She's wearing a thong and, quote, "bending over in front of the mirror". She's also, quote, "doing other things".

I've said it before and I'll say it again: DON'T take a photo or make a tape that can eventually be seen by your parents, kids, co-workers, whomever. It's just ain't worth it.
