The 30 year-old reality star, Kim Kardashian is the cover of the first Armenian Cosmopolitan magazine, when the news came up, all kinds of rumors started. The first report I read was Kim was bothered by appearing on the cover of the Turkish magazine. According to the sources she was unaware that her pic will be used in the new mag this month, nobody told her or her people about it and she never would approve to be the cover of a magazine from a country that perpetrated genocide on the Armenian people. The Armenian Genocide Day is April 24.

“Sources say Cosmo let Kim’s people know which international outlets of the magazine would use her picture — but we’re told Cosmo never mentioned Turkey to Kim or her reps. Our sources say Kim would never have approved the use of her pic in the Turkish version.”

But after all, Kim K denied it. She said she was pleased to be on the cover of the magazine and published it on her website. The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star is proud of her Armenian heritage and family’s background, and called the cover ‘a huge honor’. So, it seems like she was never upset for this cover on the magazine, in fact, she is happy and proud. However, Armenian Groups are not so glad about the publication choice, they criticized the cover and called it an insult to her and all the Armenian people.

“It’s disrespectful to Kim Kardashian and to all Armenians for the publishers of Cosmopolitan to use her image, without her permission, on the month we mark Turkey’s genocide against the Armenian people.”

But there is a detail, Cosmo replied saying Kim is one of their favorite cover girls and they are happy to use her pictures for the magazine editions worldwide. So, Now I’m confused and don’t know what to say. What do you think about the Cosmopolitan cover controversy that involves Kim Kardashian? Leave your comments below.
