Kate Middleton Stops Talking to Kim Kardashian, Ends Friendship [PHOTOS]
The Duchess' image coaches say that she should refrain from continuing her ties with Kim Kardashian after scandals following the reality star's divorce.
After developing a communicative relationship, The Duchess has been egged to say that Kardashian's antics and recent 'run-in' with an organization (PETA), is causing a negative effect to her sterling reputation. Middleton and Kardashian have been close friends since the pair met in a charity event last year.
It was said that Kate has 'unfollowed' Kardashian on Twitter and even deleted the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star on Facebook. It was also reported that The Duchess has stopped replying to Kim's messages and calls.
Even before the 'flour bombing' that happened on her fragrance launch, Kim's personality is the main reason for this Aside from Kardashian's behavior, it was also her intentions with the 'Royal friendship' that got the best of her.
"Kim's desperate to get back in contact with Kate... She needs advice on how to bag a Prince and she feels that Kate is the only person who can help her with that" says a source close to the reality star, as reported by EntertainmentWise.
Feeling used and manipulated, Middleton, with the help of some royal advisers, has decided to steer away from forming a long and fruitful relationship with the star.
"Kate wanted to be friends but, ultimately, Kim's behaviour has made that impossible." says a source in the same post.
Back then, Kardashian has been reported 'gushing' over her new high-profile relationship, saying that the similarities between her and the Duchess are insurmountable, including the big weddings they both had.
"Both of our weddings were huge news worldwide. Nobody really understood what that was like but Kate" says Kardashian in a past interview.
