(Newser) – As if you didn't already have enough reasons to hate Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, now a man is suing them for alleged ties to al-Qaeda. Jonathan Lee Riches—who, you will certainly not be surprised to hear, holds the Guinness World Record for "World's Most Litigious Man"—also names Kardashian's sisters, mom, and stepdad in the suit. He claims he "stumbled upon" the family in West Virginia earlier this month at an "al-Qaeda secret training camp."

After pledging their allegiance to al-Qaeda, the lawsuit alleges, the Kardashians and Kanye burned a US flag, stomped on a picture of the president, shot AK-47s into the air, and then—of course, because this is totally believable—performed a concert for other al-Qaeda members. In an unsurprising development, Riches was just released from prison for fraud. AllHipHop.com has a copy of the suit, which gets even more bizarre (at one point Riches claims the "defendants" took out shovels and were "fracking ... to get fuel to make weapons of mass destruction," and that Kardashian is adding "al-Qaeda women veils" to her clothing line).
