Kim Kardashian Irate Over Turkish Cosmo Cover
Kim Kardashian is reportedly very upset that a photo of her was used on the cover of Turkey’s edition of Cosmopolitan magazine this month.
Her objections stem from her Armenian heritage.
It is a widely-held belief that Turkey was responsible for acts of genocide against the Armenian people in the early part of the 20th Century.
Kim Kardashian, an Armenian-American who has been vocal about the genocide, did an international photo shoot recently that went to various magazines.
That included several owned by Cosmopolitan, but she didn’t know it would end up on the Turkish version of the mag, and she’s quite upset about this.
Sources say Cosmo let Kim’s people know which international outlets of the magazine would use her picture, but never mentioned Turkey to Kim or her reps.
Kim would not have approved the use of her pic in the Turkish version, according to sources close to her, and it’s particularly upsetting this time of year.
April 24, which happens to also be Easter Sunday this year, is the day Armenians commemorate the genocide, and comes just weeks after this release.
