Kim Kardashian Sets Record Straight On Kanye West “Privacy” & Autographs Rule

Many sites are now seizing on the portion in which the reality TV star says boyfriend Kanye West has “taught me a lot about privacy,” especially when it comes to dealing with fans.
DuJour notes that Kardashian has “started to be more selective when fans ask for her autograph in airports or when out to dinner.”
“I just tell them, sorry, but my boyfriend won’t let me,” Kardashian is quoted as saying.
But after The Sun and other outlets interpreted her comments to mean that West has put a complete stop to her interactions with fans, Kardashian took to her blog to set the record straight.
In an open letter to her supporters, she wrote:
“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!”
There you have it.
