Model and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian as per reports in TMZ is an owner of an ancient Roman artifact which the US government is said to be in desperate need of as they have to return it to Italy. While Kim has denied making any such purchase, it has come to light the artifact was purchased by her estranged husband Kanye West. As per reports, the artifact owned by the star couple reportedly belongs to the 1st or 2nd-century post which Rome shipped it to the US in 2016.
Now the reason why Kim is at the centre of all this is that the model’s name is on the paper, as she is said to have made this purchase via dba Noel Roberts Trust, but Kim has denied making any such purchase. The source informs it was only this week when Kim came across the fact that her estranged husband had bought it as part of big purchases he made. However, now the question is why Kanye bought, and why is Kim still in the dark.
Also because this artifact owned by the couple is said to be a cultural treasure for Italy, it is claimed that it was wrongly acquired from an archaeological site.
The feds informed, “a Belgium designer named Axel Vervoordt shipped the statue to the U.S., and presumably, his company put Kim's name on the customs document. Vervoordt has worked with Kim and Kanye in the past, and back in 2016 when the statue was imported -- they were building their Hidden Hills mansion ... which has been compared to a museum.” ALSO READ: Amidst Divorce With Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Continues To Sport His Wedding Band; Is Reconciliation On The Cards?- Pic Inside
Vervoordt told TMZ that the statute in question was acquired by him from a French gallery that was bought from a German auction house. Vervoordt says, “At this point, there is no evidence that this piece was illegally imported from Italy. If investigation proves that the piece was exported from Italy without a proper export license from the Italian Ministry of Culture, then we will of course take our responsibility.”
Kim hopes this statue mystery gets resolved soon. ALSO READ: Kim Kardashian Makes Study Time A Little Too Hot And Sexy As She Dons A Skimpy Bikini; Fans Say ‘Wish Studying For Law School Was This Glamorous’
