The anti-Kardashian backlash is kicked into a new gear Thursday (Nov. 10) as Kim Kardashian’s former publicist blasted the reality star for staging much about her life in recent years.
Jonathan Jaxson, Kardashian’s publicist from 2007-09, went on the syndicated radio program “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show” to explain how unreal everything in Kardashian’s life is.
“I’ve staged several moments that the world has seen of her,” Jaxson says.
He then recounts that on Dec. 26, 2007 Kardashian was attempting to figure out how to garner more publicity for herself. It was at this time the two hatched an idea to dupe the press into thinking she was engagement ring shopping for an impending nuptial with then beau Reggie Bush.
Jaxson explains the Kardashian suggested, “Let me go to a ring store and act as if I’m walking out and Reggie Bush is proposing to me.”
When asked if Jaxson and Kardashian staged the Reggie Bush proposal he says, “100 percent.”
Jaxson adds that this kind of behavior is what drove a wedge between the Kardashian and the NFL running back.
“He was totally unaware of these type of antics,” Jaxson says. “And when he finally got wind of it through some other people, he chose not to be in this relationship.”
As for her 72-day marriage to NBAer Kris Humphries, Jaxson says he believes that Kardashian was in love. But he disputes the family’s frequent assertions that they didn’t profit off the televised event.
“She would never make such a move…[of] getting proposed or engaged…if she wasn’t serious in love,” Jaxson says. “To say they weren’t paid is a bunch of foolish garbage.”
As for Kardashian’s future as a reality star, Jaxson doesn’t hold out much hope. He first pointed to Paris Hilton’s demise in this arena before discussing his former client.
“They all die out eventually,” he says.
