Kendall Jenner wants the world to know that she did not lay a finger on any photographers while she was in Paris on March 3! The reality star swears she was just covering her face while trying to maneuver her way through a sea of people outside a nightclub.
Kendall Jenner is setting the record straight. The reality star posted a lengthy message to her fans on her website about the incident involving her and Gigi Hadid leaving L’Arc nightclub during Paris Fashion Week, when she was accused of punching a photographer. She says that she never, ever even touched any of the paparazzi and they were actually the ones violating her space.
“I was super sweaty after dancing in the club all night (the last thing on earth I wanted was to have my photo taken at that moment!),” she wrote on her site. “All of a sudden, this paparazzi took his camera and started taking pictures right below my face. It was in my personal space, like centimeters from my body. I was so annoyed. All I ask for is just a bubble of space to breathe, and he disrespected that.” She did admit she grabbed the photog’s camera “and pushed it away across my body, sort of trying to push and pull it out of his hand at the same time.”
Kendall went on to say that the photos made it look worse than it was. “Of course, that side motion with my arm is why all of the pictures look like punches were flying. They totally weren’t! I just wanted him and his camera out of my face!” The reality star also added that she had her security make sure the pics were deleted off the camera. “I wanted to be 100 percent that the photos were gone for good because the paps can be sneaky. Sometimes, they will press delete, and when the camera reconfirms if they actually want to delete it, they quickly press ‘no’ thinking celebrities won’t realize it. I get that [the paparazzi] have a job to do, too – but I’d love it if they gave me a break every now and then.”
