Just yesterday, we reported that Kim Kardashian West was taking a quick break from her prison reform efforts to launch a whole new business - venturing in the realm of shapewear with her own line, Kimono Solutionwear. On Tuesday, the reality star announced she would be finally revealing details with regards to shapewear, writing that it had been a passion of hers for the past fifteen years. The shapewear is looking to rival with leading shaping-underwear brand, Spanx, by having slits and cuts in all the right places to perfectly mold underneath a dress or outfit of choice. She even shared photos of the ad campaign for the product, which features "nude" shapewear in all colors on the skin-tone spectrum. But now, it seems people have still found a way to be mad, as the announcement has been causing Kim K to receive some controversy from Twitter users who are accusing the star of "culture appropriation" with her choice of brand name.
Users took to Twitter to offer their criticism of word choice, with the hashtag #KimOhNo. The word "Kimono" in Japanese means "something to wear," but Kim seems to have used it as a play on words to her own name. Regardless, people AREN'T happy. “She’s been to Japan many times. I’m shocked. She has no respect,” tweeted one user in Japanese. “I like Kim Kardashian, but please pick a name other than Kimono if it’s underwear,” wrote another, with a third even going so far as to say "The Japanese government should file a protest against Kardashian.”

Kim Kardashian’s Being Compared To A Tampon In New Vogue Cover
Her blood, sweat and tears went into this.
Kim Kardashian doesn't usually go for many avante-garde looks or photo shoots, however, it's looking like she decided to step outside of her comfort zone and channel her inner Thierry Mugler for her latest cover for Vogue Japan. Fans, however, don't seem to be digging the experimental shoot as much as Kim, and have taken to comparing her outlandish looks to a whole host of things, but most notably: a tampon.
The KUWTK star posted her three covers, along with several shots from inside the high-fashion magazine on Thursday with the caption, "This was an absolute dream come true for me!" Whilst several of her star-studded friends, including Ashley Graham, Malika Haqq, and Kathy Hilton are applauding her fierce looks, her fans are busy trying to come up with more, lewd red objects to compare her to. The cover photo itself features Kim in a futuristic, cherry red helmet (type-thing) and matching lipstick and jewelry, while her head is being held and tilted to the side by some ceramic looking hands. Moving through the photo series, some bizarre looks which stand out include the second picture, whereby Kim looks like a fluffy satin pillow, and a baby-doll type dress and feather headpiece moment, with the garment reading "I'm not shy I just don't like you."
It's one photo, in particular, that has people talking though: Kim in an oversized... I really don't know what to call it - duvet-looking... duvet. And it didn't take long for fans to start comparing the look to a super-sized female product, adding that it's "like she's being birthed." "Got sis lookin like a whole super size tampon," one fan joked, with another responding with: "you just hit the nail on the head with that." another follower responded,"Only Kim k could look hot dressed as a tampon!"
Kim Kardashian’s Freed Convict Is Scoring Countless Job Offers: Report
The prison reform princess is a good luck charm.
Although Kim Kardashian continues to be mocked for simply being who she is, it is important to note that the reality television star has been making major social justice moves. Her activism streak remains successfully and has aided in freeing a considerable amount of previously incarcerated folks. Of these freed convicts we find Paul Algarin, whom TMZ recently reported on. According to the news outlet, since his Kardashian-pushed freedom from jail, the ex-con has been showered with job offers and work opportunities.
Algarin told TMZ that he is being scouted by people across the globe, including from countries in the UK and Africa. These opportunities range from modeling to work as a tattoo artist. Paul was also approached to help in the prison reform efforts along with Kim Kardashian. Even more recently, Kim K sent over a doctor to help remove the facial tattoo from Paul Algarin’s face post-incarceration. Precisely, both Kim and Kanye funded the procedural costs. Evidently, the socialite must bring forth good luck. Perhaps such initiatives will further people’s approval of Kim’s law school dreams. Though regardless of what anyone has to say, the mother of four is grinding it out despite the opinions of her critics. Good look, Kim K.
Lil Nas X Requests Picture From Kim Kardashian West
A simple request from Lil Nas X.
Lil Nas X has been everywhere lately. Since the release of his smash-hit "Old Town Road," which has since gone onto being remixed and blessed with the vocals of Country legend Billy Ray Cyrus, the 20-year old artist has been enjoying the fruits of his labour. Most recently, the youngster was called out for the accoutrement he's been sporting at his recent shoes, the whole cowboy gear did not please some of his fans. In response, Lil Nas offered a rebuttal and let it be known he dressed as such for his own enjoyment and no one else's. Evidently, nothing is getting in the musician's way.
While spending time with some major A-listers, the artist has ensured to keep all the memorabilia possible from the joyride that has been his recent success. As such, Lil Nas X took up a request by Kim Kardashian West for her to send him a recent photo of himself and Kanye West at the weekly organized Sunday Service. In due time, Kim K. responded with the photo which showed Lil Nas X, Kanye and North posing. While North seemed unimpressed, the smile on Lil Nas X's face is undeniable. He is living his best life.
Kim Kardashian West Earns $300K-$500K Per Instagram Post: Report
The numbers were detailed in court docs.
It’s public knowledge that the Kardashian-Jenner crew make bank from social media posts, but the exact number of what they receive for peddling products hasn’t been confirmed. However, court documents revealed just how much companies are willing to pay to have Kim Kardashian West pose with their items on Instagram.
Kim has sued Missguided USA clothing company for illegally using her image and likeness to sell their products. Back in February, Business Insider reported that Kim filed a complaint against the company, accusing them of “unlawful misappropriation” by stating, “Like other ‘fast fashion’ companies, Missguided … has become notorious for ‘knocking off’ the clothing worn by celebrities like Kardashian.”
“But Missguided does not merely replicate the looks of these celebrities as seen on red carpets, in paparazzi photos, and in social media posts,” the complaint goes on to say. “Missguided systematically uses the names and images of Kardashian and other celebrities to advertise and spark interest in its website and clothing.”
Also in the documents are details regarding how much Kim charges for her social media posts, and it states that the business mogul receives $300K to $500K per Instagram post. Although there are plenty of companies who are willing to write out a check for Kim to help them promote their products, the documents say that Kim regularly turns down offers because she doesn’t want to be associated with the brand.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star claims that her personal brand is being damaged by the association so she’s suing for $10 million. According to The Fashion Law, as of April 1, Missguided hasn’t responded to the lawsuit.
Kim Kardashian’s Daughter North West Throws Adorable Fit Over Boots
North West was heartbroken to find out she couldn't rock Kim Kardashian's boots.
Kim Kardashian shared an adorable photo of her daughter, North West. Herein, the child is seen sporting a matching pink snakeskin fit, but something looks out of place. A good look at the photo reveals the child is wearing her mother's tall and heeled snake boots. Although the two do wonderfully match (good taste, North), Kim was not keen on letting her daughter step out with them.
The hilarious photo depicts North in the aforementioned outfit. Indeed, she looks incredibly pleased at first. However, all of that stops once she is told she cannot wear the fashionista boots.
As a result, the youngster's tantrum is captured in a series of four photos. The shots demonstrate the fit's escalation, precisely ending with a close-up of North crying. Though mother-of-three Kim Kardashian found the entire thing comical, it seems her eldest daughter did not share the same feelings.
Earlier this month, Kim Kardashian allowed the public into her Hidden Hills home as part of a Vogue issue where 73 questions were asked. All of the Kardashian West children, North, Saint, and Chicago, made an appearance along with father Kanye West. The television personality spoke on motherhood, her law school journey and the anticipated addition to their family.
Kim Kardashian West Gets Lawyer Ambition Co-Sign From Her Attorney
Kim's lawyer explains just why the reality star would make the perfect attorney.
On her quest to become the next great social justice warrior attorney, Kim Kardashian West has been met with many critics who doubt the reality star. Kim has worked with the president on criminal justice and prison reform, aiding in the release of two inmates, Alice Marie Johnson and Matthew Charles. She recently shared an Instagram photo of herself as she was engulfed in her studies, a post that included a lengthy caption where Kim responded to those who attributed her ability to become an attorney to her connections, fame, and wealth status.
As Kim continues with her attorney aspirations, her own lawyer, Shawn Holley, video chatted with TMZ to co-sign Kim. Holley said that she's known Kim for years as she worked her Kim's father, Robert Kardashian, on the O.J. Simpson trial back in the early 1990s. "She has always, even as a young girl, been interested in this area, Holley said. "Be it from a legal standpoint or [an] investigation standpoint, this is something she's always been interested in, always asked my questions about over the years. She has, over the years, called me out of the blue to ask questions about investigations or the law.
"It is a true, authentic interest that she has had for a very, very long time," Holley continued. "During the whole Alice Marie Johnson period of time that we were working with the lawyers to get her out, Kim...she was involved far more than you might imagine. She wanted to be on the calls with the lawyers. She wanted to strategize, get involved with legal strategy and not just the part where she talked to Jared or Ivanka. So, to be honest with you, it's not surprising at all to me that she would take it to the next step.
When asked if Kim would be defending clients in a court of law, Holley was unsure. "I think she wants to continue doing what she's already doing which is helping people get out of prison who are serving far too much time for their misdeeds. I think she is truly interested in being a justice warrior and she walks the walk, she talks the talk, she puts her money where her mouth is. There was nothing that was asked of her during my working with Alice Marie Johnson that she wasn't ready, willing, and able to do at the drop of a hat."
Holley went on to say that Kim wants to have a better knowledge of the law, legal ramifications, and understanding of the complication jargon involved in the cases she plans to handle. According to Holley, the apprenticeship that Kim is involved in with her studies to become a lawyer is the same as attending law school. "The State Bar allows you to study law by doing it the way she's doing it," Holley told TMZ. "It's the equivalent to a law school education."
Kim Kardashian Responds To "Stay In Your Lane" Shade Surrounding Lawyer Ambitions
Kim Kardashian gives us #MotivationMonday with inspiring dream chasing post
Kim Kardashian's lobbying efforts surrounding prison reform sparked much chatter these past few years. Her sit-down with 45th US president Donald Trump was step one to granting freedom clemency to former inmates Alice Marie Johnson, Matthew Charles and viral case, Cyntoia Brown. Her success in such endeavours even got folks calling Ms. Kardashian West the "Prison Reform Princess."
In an interview with Extra, Kanye West applauded his wife's good deeds and was first to announce Kim was going to law school. Though the statement was then considered another one of Kanye's verbal faux pas, Kim Kardashian later confirmed its validity. Today, in an uplifting Instagram post, the reality TV star explained how her deep involvement in criminal justice reform has inspired her to pursue a legal career. In the thick of previous allegations surrounding her new goal, Kim faced harsh clap back from the public. While nay-sayers urged Kim to "stay in her lane," others accused her of using fame and financial privilege to by-pass the regular Juris Doctor acquisition process.
"I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn’t care who you are. This option is available to anyone who’s state allows it."
Furthermore, the mother of three insisted on letting the world know she meant serious business and remained adamant about earning her stripes the regular way.
"My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study. I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can’t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me."
It is important to consider Kim's track record does show a commitment to fight for the underprivileged and socially disadvantaged, populations which may solely benefit from additional support. Hence, we can only wish Kim K. best of luck.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Looking To Secure $7.5 Million Vacation Home: Report
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West return to the housing market for a $7.5 million home in Palm Springs.
Kim and Kanye are rumoured to be in talks to secure a giant 6-bedroom and 7-bathroom vacation home in Southern California. The last we’ve heard of the couple’s jab at real estate dates back to Kanye’s purchase of a $14 million dollar Miami Beach condo, a surprise Christmas present to his beloved wifey Kim. Unfortunately, things went awry once the couple found out they had been photographed by paparazzi while sharing an intimate moment on their balcony. To the lovebirds, privacy surely remains a costly yet worthy priority since backing out of the aforementioned deal reportedly caused them to lose their $600k down payment.
However, this time around, things are looking up and the celebrity couple might get lucky with this new pad guaranteed to be a privacy-haven, enclosed within a community-gated area nearing Palm Springs. The coveted home is priced at $7.5 million and includes an array of dope amenities such as numerous fountains and pools to keep cool despite the surrounding dry desert.

Moreover, should they be successful in their attempts, KimYe will be living right next to mom dukes, Kris Jenner, who secured the neighbouring home for $12 million last August. Negotiations are still underway hence nothing is finalized, but we can only wish the best to Kim and Kanye.
