Kim Kardashian: 'My trip to Haiti was completely life-changing'

By
Kim Kardashian has clarified the purpose behind her recent trip to Haiti.

A report appeared in the National Enquirer last week claiming that the socialite and reality star visited the Caribbean country in order to attend a fashion show and pamper herself, an accusation which she has vehemently denied.

Writing on her official blog, Kardashian revealed that she was in Haiti to learn more about the charity We Advance, which aims to facilitate "a movement to advance the health, safety, and well being of women throughout Haiti".

Kardashian wrote: "As some of you know, my mom and I flew out to Haiti earlier this month to meet with Maria Bello and embark on an amazing journey together in Haiti.

"Our mission was to learn more about Maria's charity, We Advance, meet the Haitian people who have made such amazing progress since the devastating earthquake in 2010, and celebrate the women of Haiti, who inspired me more than I ever could have anticipated."

Kardashian further explained: "While my experience was completely life-changing… a very emotional and surprisingly positive journey that I will never forget, some media outlets have tried to tarnish the motive behind my visit and have written completely ridiculous and untrue things.

"The truth is that I was at the Haitian Artisan Fair, where the amazing men and women who make their jewelry and crafts sell them to visitors to make a living, and I bought some of their beautiful jewelry after the fashion show!! Reading this made me so disappointed in the media."

Kardashian went on to call The National Enquirer story "malicious and untrue", adding: "The journalists obviously didn't bother to do their research and instead published a ridiculous story to sell copies. I have ignored all of this until now, but because I wanted to write a few blogs about my experience, I felt I needed to address this first.

"I have become accustomed to dealing with rumors and lies spread about my family or my relationships, and have learned to ignore it to a certain extent. But when a magazine makes the decision to twist the truth and write lies like that, it belittles the entire experience we had in Haiti, and I won't let them do that."
