Kim Kardashian snubbed by president

  • Print

Kim Kardashian was upset to be snubbed by President Barack Obama this week.

The reality TV star had reportedly hoped to meet the commander-in-chief at Steven Spielberg's USC Shoah Foundation gala in Los Angeles on Wednesday (05.07.14) and though she wasn't seated near the guest of honor, she asked one of her entourage to find out if he would meet her, only for her request to be denied.

A source said: "Kim's table wasn't close to President Obama's but she enlisted one of her minions to scout out the opportunity to meet him.

"Obama's table and surrounding area was swarming with Secret Service, and security was very tight. Kim's lackey was told to go pound sand, and it was conveyed to Kim that she wouldn't be able to meet him."

Kim - who is engaged to Kanye West, the father of her 10-month-old daughter North - was particularly disappointed not to meet the president as he met with filmmaker Spielberg and some of his friends at his table "for about an hour" after the director had presented him with the Ambassador for Humanity award.

The source added to RadarOnline.com: "Kim was let down and disappointed. She didn't understand why she just couldn't say hello to him. Ever since landing the Vogue cover, her ego is even more out of control. In her mind, she and Kanye are more popular than the President Obama and the First Lady!"

Despite her upset, Kanye - who has twice been branded a "jackass" by the president - advised his fiancee not to be upset by the snub.

The source said: "Kim truly thinks she is American royalty, and she and Kanye are a global couple powerhouse. She doesn't understand why President Obama wouldn't want to meet her.

"Kanye told her not to bother wasting her time with Obama because he is a hater. Yes, Kanye actually said that!"
