Early this month, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and Maria Bello flew to Haiti with Bello’s charity, We Advance, which seeks to empower women in the most impoverished areas of Haiti. Kardashian returned to blog about a 16-year-old girl whose business initiative and philanthropy inspired her.
But, as per usual, Kardashian also found herself forced to address some media reports about her experience. “Some media outlets have tried to tarnish the motive behind my visit and have written completely ridiculous and untrue things,” she writes. “The National Enquirer wrote that I went to a fashion show in Haiti and
then spent a fortune pampering myself! The truth is that I was at the
Haitian Artisan Fair, where the amazing men and women who make their
jewelry and crafts sell them to visitors to make a living, and I bought
some of their beautiful jewelry after the fashion show!! Reading this
made me so disappointed in the media.”
While Kardashian is practically immune to the rumors running rampant about her family and her love life, she draws the line at the media stirring up trouble when it comes to her charitable endeavors.
“The journalists obviously didn’t bother to do their research and instead published a ridiculous story to sell copies,” she says. “I have become accustomed to dealing with rumors and lies spread about
my family or my relationships, and have learned to ignore it to a
certain extent. But when a magazine makes the decision to twist the
truth and write lies like that, it belittles the entire experience we
had in Haiti, and I won’t let them do that.”
She also shared photos, like the one above, from the trip.
