Stories about aggressive paparazzi have been circulating in the headlines for years. Stars have not been shy about their displeasure with constantly being harassed for photos and comments. Sean Penn even took it so far as to break a paparazzi’s camera.
The latest victim of in-your-face paparazzi antics is a very pregnant Kim Kardashian. Kim said that the paparazzi are “out of control” and threatened her and her unborn daughter. Like so many other stars, Kim decided to air her frustrations via Twitter, stating:
“I wouldn’t let the paps get a pic of me today & they threatened my life & said if I continue to block shots then they will make my world dangerous to live in! How dare they threaten my life & my unborn child! This has gotten way out of control!”
She continues: “I get I live a public life. I live my life on a reality show for the world to see. I love my life, but when the cameras stop, that doesn’t mean I don’t want a break too.”
"I’m 32 yrs old now, about to be a mom. I’m not 25 clubbing around LA anymore. There’s no excuse for threats & stalking!"
Kardashian also begged for privacy during the last month of her pregnancy: "Let me enjoy this last month of pregnancy please without threats & being scared to leave my home due to what dangerous thing they just threatened to do to me.”
“For years I’ve always been so gracious. Every shot they take now just isn’t flattering & crazy stories get made up, so why would I willingly just let them stalk me & smile for them?”
She also alleges that she was cornered in her car by four paparazzi trying to snap pics: “Yesterday 4 cars boxed me in. One in front, behind, & one on each side just to have me drive at their speed so they can snap through the window.”
“It’s really so scary what they are legally allowed to get away with!” she added.
Fame and exposure come with a side of paparazzi, stars know this going in. But whether she’s a Kardashian or not, threats of danger and harm to anyone are not acceptable. I hate to think how much worse it will be when baby girl Kardashian/West is born.
