Kim Kardashian finally addressed being apart of Illuminati after she wished her best friend Brittny Gastineau a happy birthday Wednesday attached with a photo college, in which some fans though represented a symbol of a cult.
The 33-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality star uploaded the collage on Instagram that had a triangle in the middle of Gastineau and her, another photo of the besties on the middle and one on the outside on Instagram
"Happy Birthday to my best friend... We've shared soooo many memories over the past years! I love you!" Kardashian captioned the photo.
While it may have seemed like a sweet message to Gastineau, fans took to the photo to ask if Kardashian was part of the secret society, a cult that has been linked to other celebrity names such as Jay Z and Beyonce.
But Kardashian cleared up the rumors and said she is not down with Illuminati.
"What is the illuminate? A religion?... I'm a Christian. A cult?... not into that sorry!" Kardashian wrote, adding, "It had an eye on it, which reminded me of Britt bc her company 'eye on glam' & reminds me of against evil eye bracelets we wear. So sorry guys it was just a cool design I saw on one of those IG collage apps."
"Illuminati" is a group founded by Adam Weishaupt, a law professor in Bavaria, according to Discovery News. Weishaupt claimed he had been given mysterious knowledge by a "higher source" than God. The "Illuminati" organization represents a "pyramid scheme cult," with new initiates mandated to pledge obedience to Weishaupt, and promises more knowledge and greater wisdom the more invested a member becomes.
