Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian broke the Internet once again (if she’s gonna keep pulling this, she better start paying our wireless bills) when she flew her inner circle to a private island to celebrate the big 4-0. Obviously all the Internet commoners went nuts. How dare she flaunt her mega-rich privilege in this pandemic hellscape? On the bright side, her tone-deaf caption received the meme treatment. So thanks for the laughs, Kimberly.
Now Page Six is reporting that Kim spent $1 million to fly under 30 of her closest friends and family all the way to Tahiti (smack dab in the middle of the Pacific, an 8 hour plane ride). On a private jet, but of cooourse. They left LA on October 20th, and spent five days at The Brando, “a luxurious private island resort in French Polynesia with just 35 villas”, that’s known as one of the “finest eco-friendly resorts in the world”. And yeah, it was Marlon Brando’s private island. So I guess the Kardashians were waited on hand and hoove by animal-human hybrid freaks.
Kim & Ko. took over the entire island, which features “35 one, two, and three-bedroom villas, which all have private pools and rent for up to $20,000 a night plus tax.” Oof, it’s the tax that’ll get ya. And obviously these cool cats and kittens received VVVIP treatment. A source tells Page Six:
“The group was limited to Kim’s closest family and friends. Everyone on the trip was repeatedly tested for COVID before they left in the middle of the night on a private Boeing 777. Once on the island they had lavish dinner after dinner, spa treatments and hikes through the nature sanctuary. There was no expense spared. Everyone was banned from posting on social media by Kim to ensure her privacy.”
Page Six also says that Presidential candidate Kanye West was in attendance, despite his absence from the photos. Speaking of the election, Kim used her privilege to remind fans to vote, vote, vote:
Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian (who claims to have had khoronavirus earlier this year), went on Ellen and discussed the trip. She said the group didn’t even know where they were going until they were on the plane. They were just told to bring a few nice outfits. Of course the allegedly cruel, toxic, abusive Ellen DeGeneres just had to spoil the vibe by bringing up how Kim “got in trouble” for the trip. And Khloe predictably defended her sister’s right to party (via Us Weekly):
“I haven’t heard a lot about it, but I did hear that people were upset that we all went out of town [but] I don’t really know the extent of it, but this year is a frustrating year. I get it,” the Revenge Body host said. “I think there’s so many frustrations going on for everybody, but also, it’s her 40th. This is something she really wanted to do for us … it was such a nice thing.”
She also says the trip helped give the island a tourism boost:
“All of the precautions and everything that we took and being there and how grateful everyone was for the tourist aspect of it — so many people said that we were their first party or guests that they’ve had in months and what it’s done for them to be able to pay their bills or do stuff for their family. Just hearing those messages when we were there, we felt really good.”
Khloe says the entire group, which included her now on-again boyfriend Tristan Thompson, felt “so safe” on the trip. Um, here’s where we katch Khloe in an obvious lie. As if she felt safe with professional love rat Tristan hanging around scantily clad women. Unless… ohhh, she forced him to wear some sort of chastity belt! Of course! That’s what Khloe meant when she said “precautions”! Clever girl.
