Kim Kardashian and momager Kris Jenner recently flew to Haiti to spread awareness to the charity "We Advance" co-founded by actress Maria Bello. The organization brings much-needed aid to earthquake victims.
The 31-year-old reality star is now responding on her personal blog about "untrue" reports involving her trip. Kim wrote the following:
- "As some of you know, my mom and I flew out to Haiti earlier this month to meet with Maria Bello and embark on an amazing journey together in Haiti. Our mission was to learn more about Mariaâ€™s charity, We Advance, meet the Haitian people who have made such amazing progress since the devastating earthquake in 2010, and celebrate the women of Haiti, who inspired me more than I ever could have anticipated.
While my experience was completely life-changingâ€¦ a very emotional and surprisingly positive journey that I will never forget, some media outlets have tried to tarnish the motive behind my visit and have written completely ridiculous and untrue things. The National Enquirer wrote that I went to a fashion show in Haiti and spent a fortune pampering myself! The truth is that I was at the Haitian Artisan Fair, where the amazing men and women who make their jewelry and crafts sell them to visitors to make a living, and I bought some beautiful jewelry!! Reading this made me so disappointed in the media. Taking such a positive thing and writing something malicious and untrue."

Kim went on to say:
- "I have ignored all of this until now, but because I wanted to write a few blogs about my experience, I felt I needed to address this first. I have become accustomed to dealing with rumors and lies spread about my family or my relationships, and have learned to ignore it to a certain extent. But when a magazine makes the decision to twist the truth and write lies like that, it belittles the entire experience we had in Haiti, and I wonâ€™t let them do that.
I think itâ€™s important that I share my experiences with you all, rather than you read false reports in the media. I have some really great stories and photos from my trip and Iâ€™m so excited to share them with you all! Xo
