Reality television star Kim Kardashian, her rapper husband Kanye West and their 22-month-old child named “North West” landed in Israel Monday and immediately had to change hotel destinations because of leaks to the media.
Kim’s sister Chloe Kardashian is traveling with the couple and child.
Jerusalem’s Waldorf-Astoria apparently has at least one empty suite thanks to the sudden change of plans, and another unknown hotel won the privilege and fat check for hosting the couple, who flew in from Armenia.
A private security firm is trying to keep the media out of their hair, but that will be a bit difficult if they go through plans to visit the Western Wall.
They hope to film themselves for their reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
Their next stop is Jordan.
Kardashian three years ago tweeted to her millions of followers that she was “praying for everyone in Israel” during one of Hamas’ chapters of bombing the country with missiles.
After an instant barrage of hate messages and death threats, she tweeted five minutes later, “praying for everyone in Palestine and across the world!”
Later, she deleted both tweets.
She then posted on her blog:
I want to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel and after hearing from my followers, I decided to take down the tweets because I realized that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologize.
If she is smart, she won’t comment on Hillary Clinton, Prime Minister Netanyahu or Iran on her visit and will restrict her comments to more worldly matters, such as herself.Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu
