Kim Kardashian blasted the paparazzi as stalkers who are out of control.
Kardashian took to her Twitter on Monday and accused the paparazzi of endangering her life and that of her unborn child's. She is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Kanye West and felt endangered. She demanded to know when the photographers who routinely follow her would be dealt with by the authorities.
"A paparazzi almost crashed into my car today!" Kardashian tweeted. "I am still shaking! He put me in such danger! When will this legalized stalking stop???!!!???"
Kardashian did not provide any further detail but it was the latest dustup involving the reality TV star and a group of photographers. On May 10, West bumped his head into a street sign while in Beverly Hills. West lashed out at the paparazzi who were following him and his girlfriend.
"Don't take another f*****g photo man! ... All of you mother-f*****s stop taking photos!" he yelled.
Kardashian's stance against the paparazzi is one that is not shared by her mother, Kris Jenner. Reportedly, the matriarch of the Kardashian family has relied on the paparazzi to take pictures of her family.
"The Kardashians have made their names off the back off being photographed," a source said.
In the May 2013 edition of Details, Nick Lachey implied that Kardashian was such a fan of being photographed that she would tip off the paparazzi. He dated the reality TV star in 2006 before she rose to fame from her sex tape. He felt that she was responsible for the press attention which surrounded them.
"Let's just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there," he said. "Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside."
In 2010, Kardashian admitted in Kardashian Konfidential that dating Lachey helped improve her profile. She wrote that the paparazzi began to call out her name because she was dating the singer.
"Usually they would shout, 'Paris! Paris! Paris!' [But] they started yelling 'Kim! Kim! Kim!' I wanted to hide, and Paris and I just looked at each other and laughed," she wrote.
