Here is the story from Yahoo: (scroll down for audio of the KS woman, Amy Logan, and the REAL story)
Every week there seems to be yet another Kardashian sister controversy, but this time it's for a seemingly innocent venture – their children's clothing line, Kardashian Kids, exclusively sold at Babies "R" Us. The collection, which includes signature pieces like a $23 leatherette skirt for 0 to 24-month-old baby girls, has raised the ire of one Kansas mom, Amie Logan, who has started a petition to rid the retailer's shelves of the merchandise.
"I don't want my child to grow up to be a sex tape star," Logan wrote in her Change.org petition. "You pulled the Breaking Bad toys because they promoted drug use. You should pull this clothing line because it promotes bad behavior as well. The madness has to stop. If the toys are damaging so is the clothing."
Logan started the petition after she received an email from Babies "R" Us that notified her of the Kardashian Kids collection. In light of the recent Breaking Bad uproar – in which Toys "R" Us pulled the action figures from its stores after parents complainedpetit that the they were unfit for children – the 43-year-old mother of one decided to publicly question why everyone could be up in arms about toys involving a fictional television show but not about clothes that are backed by controversial reality stars. According to Logan, the sisters are bad role models for young girls.
"Our priorities are a little messed up," Logan tells Yahoo Style. "We are getting upset that they have toys from a fictional television show for kids 16 and older, but then they're selling the Kardashian clothing line, which is from a real-life family that made their fortune from Kim's sex tape."
The petition is not yet complete, but it has gained support from mothers nationwide (which Logan says she did not expect). And many are threatening to stop shopping at Babies "R" Us all together. One mother from Michigan wrote, "The Kardashians – due to their own marketing – are certainly not about family values. Just the idea that their brand would be part of Babies "R" Us makes me not want to shop there – ever again." Another mom from Missouri noted, "Maybe we should focus on healthy family values at home and stop idolizing these people."
Others have taken to Twitter to share their support for the exclusive collection.

A new development may be turning the tables in the legal battle between Kesha and her longtime producer Dr. Luke. TMZ says the producer's attorney has asked the court to unseal a deposition from a 2011 case in which they both were being sued by the pop star's ex-manager. The deposition shows Kesha swearing under oath that she never had sexual relations with Luke -- going directly against her current allegations of sexual and physical abuse. The deposition also documents Kesha denying that Luke tried to use a date rape drug on her. A judge has agreed to allow Luke's legal team to use Kesha's 2011 testimony in the current case. Kesha's attorney Mark Geragos is insisting the producer coerced the singer into lying on the stand. He tells the site that the deposition is "a pathetic attempt to once again blame the victim."
