Back in the early 2000s, when they were still friends, Kim Kardashian allegedly provided the tabloids with insider information on Paris Hilton.
The pair were close friends for years. Kim and Paris were seen on many a red carpet and partied together. And, apparently, whenever Paris got into trouble, Kim would snitch to the supermarket tabloids!
Here’s more from InTouch ex-employees (via BuzzFeed):
Take the Kardashians, whom In Touch and Life & Style (and E!) transformed into the household names they are today.
Several former employees confirmed that before Kim Kardashian’s sex tape with Ray J was leaked in 2007, Kim served as a source for In Touch stories, providing a steady stream of information on Paris Hilton.
(A spokesperson for Kardashian states that the claim is “absolutely false.”)
Before that, Paris claimed to have invented modern reality television with The Simple Life in 2007 (even though much bigger shows like The Real World predate it by years).
Asked directly about Kim in a previous interview, Paris said, seeming to be snide, “it’s nice to inspire people”. Implying that Kim, who was Paris’ wardrobe assistant/personal assistant a decade ago, copied Paris’ business model of plotting to leak a tape for attention right before the release of a reality show.
