Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are famous for many things, but holding back on social media is not one of them. After all, the Kardashians are basically the first family of Instagram, and can send the Internet into meltdown with one simple post to their hundreds of millions of Twitter followers.

So, it's pretty surprising to hear that the sisters have reportedly come into legal trouble for not tweeting enough. Yes, you read that right. According to American gossip site TMZ, the reality stars are being sued by Hillair Capital Management, an investment firm which stepped in with $10 million to support the sisters' Kardashian Beauty line in 2014.

In return for Hillair funding the distribution of the line, 'the Kardashians would continue to be the faces of the line, and actively promote, market and support the line,' according to court documents. That's where the tweeting bit comes in.

However, disagreement reportedly arose, with Hillair claiming that the sisters did not fulfill their side of the bargain. The documents further state that 'The Kardashians immediately stopped marketing, promoting, and supporting the line and began courting new potential investors to buy out Hillair's stake.'

The company alleges that had the sisters promoted Kardashian Beauty on Twitter and other social media platforms, the brand would have earned around $180 million.

Kim, Khloé and Kourtney are yet to comment on the case.
