Kim Kardashian Cancels Australia Appearances – Kim Kardashian is canceling weekend engagements in Australia to head back home, according to The Daily Telegraph.
After honoring commitments to promote handbags in Sydney, and enduring a “grilling” on a morning show, Kim told sponsor Swisse that her Saturday appearance at Stakes Day, part of Melbourne’s racing event, would be “too much,” waiving her estimated $150,000 fee for the one-hour gig.
In a statement to the Herald Sun she said, “I am very disappointed that I am unable to attend the Swisse marquee but I hope to come back and work with the Swisse team at another point in time.”
A spokesman for Swisse confirmed the withdrawal and said they were disappointed. “All indications were that Kim wanted to fulfill all of her commitments once she landed in Australia but has obviously changed her mind given her very difficult personal challenges at the moment.”
Kardashian’s sister Khloe was approached as a last-minute replacement but will also leave the country for Los Angeles.
