Kim Kardashian has spent much of her adult life in front of a camera - to various degrees of notoriety - but lately, the expectant reality star is sick of them.
Kardashian took a page from her beau Kanye West's book on Thursday, when she unloaded her frustration with paparazzi on Twitter.
"I wouldn't let the paps get a pic of me today & they threatened my life & said if I continue to block shots then they will make my world dangerous to live in! How dare they threaten my life & my unborn child! This has gotten way out of control!" she tweeted.
But that was just the beginning:
Her boyfriend/baby's father understands her pain. On May 10, West banged his head on a street sign in Los Angeles when he was trying to duck the photographers who were snapping photos of him and Kardashian. That same day, the rapper was videotaped angrily approaching another photographer and yelling at him to stop with the pictures.
At a performance in New York on May 15, West went off on a tangent about fame and celebrity, adamantly denying in an expletive-filled rant that he should be considered one:
"I'm the worst kinda ... celebrity, 'cause all I do is make real music. ... So I don't know why they running up on me with no cameras, trying to like, sell pictures and s*** to magazines, asking me those dumba** questions, throwing me off of my focus and s***. Harassing you all motherf****** day," West said. "I'm trying to make some music that inspires people to be the best they can be - and I don't want nobody to ask nothing else of me."
As for Kardashian, she has a different understanding of what her profession as a reality TV star entails. But she still thinks, as do other A-listers like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber, that there should be some regulations in place for the kind of access paparazzi have to celebrities.
"I get I live a public life. I live my life on a reality show for the world to see," Kardashian said on Twitter. "I love my life, but when the cameras stop, that doesn't mean I don't want a break too. I'm 32 yrs old now, about to be a mom. I'm not 25 clubbing around LA anymore. There's no excuse for threats & stalking!"
Unfortunately, the trail of photographers isn't likely to diminish as the E! personality inches closer to her due date. Kardashian and West are expecting the arrival of their daughter in July.
