"We thought we were so badass!"
From logos to outfit ideas, Kim Kardashian has been accused of stealing a lot of things in the past. Though the reality star may be filthy rich enough to buy off some people’s silence, it doesn’t excuse her from breaking the law. Now, she’s found herself in hot water with fans after she’s caught shoplifting and taking advantage of the five-finger discount at a local store. What’s worse — Kim is acting like it’s no big deal!
Kim Kardashian is no stranger to a stealing scandal. Having just been recently accused of lifting another company’s logo for her children’s fashion line with husband Kanye West, you’d think the reality star would try to distance herself from any controversy. However, you’d be wrong. Now, the 36-year-old has found herself in yet another scandal after casually admitting to fans that she shoplifted. To make things worse, the mother-of-two is acting like it’s no big deal as she confesses of indulging in the five-finger discount at a local store.
In a new video shared on her app, Kim revealed she used to be so obsessed with makeup that she would go down to a drugstore and steal a specific lipstick shade she wanted. Though she had the money to pay, she would do it with her then-BFF Nicole Richiejust because they could.
“I’ve always been really interested in beauty,” she began. “My first memory with makeup was when Kourtney [Kardashian] and I would get into all of my mom’s makeup. We would try everything, but we were so obsessed with concealer and foundation for some reason. We would put it everywhere—literally, all over our faces.”
“When Nicole Richie and I were around 11, we went into a drugstore in Malibu and took lipstick. We thought we were so badass!” she said. “I can’t remember the name of the color, but it was a brown shade from Revlon.”
As someone who doesn’t drink a lot, Kim admitted the stunt was her way of being a bad girl during her teenage years. “I wasn’t much of a partier growing up, so this was about as rebellious as I got,” she shared.
This wasn’t the first time Kim admitted to having sticky fingers, though. Just last year, Kim confessed to stealing expensive bathrobes from hotel rooms. In a since-deleted blog post, the Selfish author wrote she couldn’t pass up the chance to snag a towel kimono during her stay at a five-star resort in Dubai.
“One of my fave things about staying in hotels are the big, fluffy white robes they put in the rooms. Anyone who’s traveled with me knows I’m OBSESSED, lol,” Kim penned. “I’ll even admit, sometimes I take the robes from my fave accommodations, like the Atlantis in Dubai (So sorry! I stole two! LOL!) and the Montage in Beverly Hills because they literally have the best ones.”
According to the The Sun, the luxury robes Kim took take 10 months to make. Exclusive to the resort, the aqua colored garb is worth roughly around $300.
While the rest of us would’ve been punished, the hotel ended up not reprimanding her on the thief. A rep for the Atlantis, The Palm later said, “From ball gowns to dressing gowns – Kim clearly knows how to dress for any occasion while on vacation and can certainly spot the ultimate in luxury when relaxing.”
