Kim Kardashian is set to visit Manila, Philippines in 2015. The news comes two years after her siblings, Rob Kardashian and Kylie Jenner visited the country for the Philippine Fashion Week. That time, Rob and Kylie attended a fashion show at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium.
According to our sources, the 34-year old controversial Hollywood celebrity may arrive in late January or early February next year. However, Kim’s rep confirmed that neither Kanye West nor their first baby, North West will come with her. No further details were released.
“Kim (Kardashian) learned about the warm response of the Filipinos who downloaded her game app. She just wants to thank them personally.” The rep told Taho News, referring to the popular Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, where players can create their own red carpet adventure.
According to the latest data from Glu Mobile Inc, the company behind Kim Kardashian’s game app, the celebrity’s free app game has been downloaded more than 22.8 million times since its launch last June. In terms of number of downloads, the Philippines ranked 3rd, next to US and India.
In its new agreement with the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star, the video game company has extended its contract for Kim Kardashian: Hollywood for another 3 years. This means the video game will be available until June 30, 2019.
This coming November 22, Kim Kardashian will visit Mumbai, India to make a guest appearance on Bigg Boss Season 8, the Indian version of Big Brother. This will be her first time to visit India, as well as the Philippines.
Meanwhile, GABRIELA is only one of the organizations that are not happy with the arrival of Kim Kardashian to Manila. According to the women’s advocacy group, the controversial reality TV star does not serve as a role model to young Filipinos.
The group is referring to her video scandal in 2007, her divorce to NBA player Kris Humphries after 72 days of being married, and her latest pose on the Paper Magazine which was dubbed as the “Break the Internet Kim Kardashian.”
In December 2013, haters slammed Kim Kardashian after she gave 10 percent of her earnings to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in the Philippines. The controversial celebrity later defended herself through a post on her official blog.
