Kim Kardashian Travels to Kuwait to Learn About Middle East ConflictPublished by Natasha Fierce on Wednesday, November 21, 2012 at 11:49 am.
For Kim Kardashian’s second tour of the Middle East, the reality star won’t be focusing only on camel rides and photo ops.
TMZ reports that Kardashian, who recently came under fire for tweeting support for Israel during the devastating air strikes in Gaza, will spend part of her time during an upcoming trip to Bahrain and Kuwait educating herself about the complex Middle East conflict.
“Kim wants to be as informed as possible … so she can use her celebrity to help those in need and raise awareness about important issues in the area,” a source says. Further, the source claims Kardashian has set up meetings with leaders on both sides of the political divide.
One person who doesn’t seem to be buying Kim’s Angelina Jolie-like change-up is princess Kate Middleton. Kate reportedly promptly returned a cache of Kardashian Kollection dressed Kim had gifted her with a polite “thanks, but no thanks.”
“While she was in London last week, Kim had several free dresses from her Kardashian Kollection sent to Princess Kate,” UK’s Marie Claire reported. “She hoped Kate might be seen wearing one of the designs out in public, which would give their fashion credentials a huge boost.”
Unfortunately for Kim, fashion icon Kate turned down the free goods, and also an invitation to join the Kardashian sisters for high tea.
Maybe Kim will have an easier time finding her way into royal circles once her “diplomatic” mission is complete?
