It’s not uncommon for the media to take things you say in an interview out of context, or twist them to make a story more interesting. In a recent interview I was asked what Kanye had taught me that I value the most. I said privacy. I have learned to understand that it’s important to have boundaries, especially when we are having a private date night dinner. So if someone came up to the table at dinner, I used to get up, take pics and sign an autograph in the middle of our meal. Now, I know that this time is our private time, and I absolutely will as soon as I’m done eating! It’s not that he won’t let me sign autographs for my fans… far from it! Just as soon as we’re done! Totally understandable! I have learned to understand the importance of privacy and boundaries, something that I haven’t really learned to embrace before. The same thing goes for Kourtney and Khloe. If Kourtney is out with Penelope and Mason, at the park, shopping at the mall or just anywhere she won’t take pictures with people or sign anything, that’s her boundary. Khloe is the same way when she’s with Lamar. I adore my fans so much, and hate that sometimes things get twisted to seem a different way! I hope this makes sense! Xo

I know that many of you have read the Dujour Magazine interview I just did. In the article, I was asked about continuing on with “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” As everyone knows, we are extremely proud of the show and all of us are staying on through at least season 10. The show remains to be my number 1 priority and it’s a big part of my life and I enjoy every moment of it. It has given me such a rare opportunity to share more of my life with all of you and has brought my family closer to each other. I’m looking forward to the new season and beyond. The fact is that I have many goals that I still need to reach and accomplish and I (like so many of you) don’t know where my life will be in the next couple of years, but I’m looking forward to continuing this journey.
I want to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel and after hearing from my followers, I decided to take down the tweets because I realized that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologize. I should have pointed out my intentions behind these tweets when I posted them. The fact is that regardless of religion and political beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didnt choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution. I also pray for all the other people around the world who are caught in similar crossfires.
I want to clear something up for you all, because it seems that something I said has been taken way out of context, as is often the case with quotes pulled from interviews. In a recent magazine interview, I told of how I had called a female fan who was battling cancer, and she told me how she had watched the show and seen how I had faced my own struggles, and had been inspired by how I had found the courage to change a situation that was making me unhappy. She told me how her life had completely changed when she was diagnosed, and a lot of friends had deserted her, which is something I said I could relate to. In no way was I comparing my own experiences to that of a cancer patient. I was merely talking about how there are times in your life, and everyone goes through them, when you find out who loves you enough to stand by you through thick and thin.
Many of you know that my father passed away from cancer, and my grandma is a cancer survivor. This is a disease that has brought so much pain and heartache to our family and I would never want to offend or upset anyone who was battling cancer, or whose family members were battling or had passed away from cancer.
What I said in the interview was misconstrued and I wanted to explain to you all what the context was around my phone call with this girl. Xo
I want to address this because everyone has been asking me if I’m ok after the bar fight last night. I’m totally fine, guys!
Last night Kourtney, Scott, Khloe and I went out to a bar to have a fun night on Khloe’s last night in NYC. A drunk male fan came up to me and asked to take a picture, and I obliged, but his girlfriend, who was also drunk, got a little out of hand.
Luckily I had Scott and Khloe there to protect me. None of us were drinking… we just wanted a fun family night out, but when people see the cameras rolling, they try to get attention and I guess that’s what happened when the drunk girl saw that we were filming KKTNY. I always take the high road, so we all left straight after and didn’t feed into their drama.
Ok, moving on!
I gather you all know what a hard time this week has been—and for obvious reasons. I haven’t commented on anything because it is personal for others, but my silence is unusual and I know it’s upsetting some of you so here is what I will say:
I have never planted stories of any kind in any way. I have always been open and honest in what I do and what I’m doing. There are dozens of engagement rumors every month… then it will soon move to marriage and then it will move to babies. I can’t control these rumors and I don’t care to try.
I have learned many lessons being in this business. You can’t always believe what you read and hear. We all make mistakes. I have certainly made mine and I’m sure I will make mistakes in the future. The important thing is to learn from them.
So, next time something happens and you don’t hear a response from me, please assume it is a silly rumor that is not true or that I have decided that it is not appropriate for me to respond.
