Uh oh, it might be time for a Kim Kardashian defamation lawsuit to take off. Apparently, the Kim Kardashian/Bret Lockett affair might just be all made up.

Usually, affairs are clandestine and a bit scandalous. Two lovers sneaking behind their boyfriend and girlfriend's backs, etc. Yet, now NFL player Lockett is saying that he actually has never met Ms. Kardashian, reports iVillage.

That's right. An affair where you never meet the person. It's kind of like the old saying, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it - does it really fall? So, if there's an affair, but nobody actually saw each other in the flesh, did it really happen?

Maybe. Especially since Lockett is saying that he never met Ms. Kardashian. Logically, that means there was no affair, right?

Confusingly, he's still steadfastly saying that there was an affair. He may not have met Kardashian, but he said that they had a five-month affair of phone sex and texting, reports iVillage. That's right, a phone sex affair.

Lockett is now saying that the only reason he didn't meet up was because Kardashian was "very busy." He is sticking to his original story that Kardashian requested his phone number through her friend Lauren London. Unsurprisingly, London has denied these allegations and has even sent off a letter to In Touch telling the magazine that she has been impersonated by a Lauren London imposter, reports iVillage.

Now Kardashian's lawyers are drafting up legal documents to file a defamation lawsuit against Lockett, reports gossip source TMZ. Defamation lawsuits can be successful but only if the statements are false - which is probably why Lockett will be trying to gather up some evidence of this "affair."

Kim Kardashian's defamation suit over the Kim Kardashian/Bret Lockett affair is expected to be filed today sometimes, reports TMZ, but you never know.
