The three Kardashian sisters could be on the hook for a lot of cash after a business partner sued them.

Hillair Capital Management has filed a US$180 million lawsuit, accusing Kim, Kourtney and Khloe of fraud and breach of contract, according to the New York Daily News.

The company said in court filings that it sunk US$10.2 million into their beauty line in 2014 to save it after the previous distributor went bankrupt.

But soon after, the women started looking for a better deal, Hillair said.

It accused the reality stars of sabotaging the contract on purpose by refusing to promote the line, according to GossipCop. However, the Kardashians never found a new buyer, and threatened to remove their names from the products.

Khloe even "publicly disparaged" the line at a 2015 beauty exhibition in Dubai, screaming and claiming that she hated it, according to the Daily News.

Hillair wants the value of its $10 million investment back, as well as lost profits up to $180 million, according to TMZ.

The sisters were forced to change the name of their line to Kardashian Beauty from Khroma Beauty back in 2013, after a company called Kroma Makeup accused them of copyright infringement.

This isn't the first time Kim, Kourtney and Khloe have been in the news recently on legal matters. A corset company endorsed by all three is facing a class-action lawsuit that claims it misled customers about the products' weight-loss capabilities.
