Kim Kardashian Carries Cutout of Brother Through Armenia, Has North West Baptized in Jerusalem Church
By Antoinette Bueno
No hard feelings, bro.
Despite some not-so-secret bad blood between Kim Kardashian and her younger brother, currently troubled 28-year-old Rob Kardashian, Kim made sure her sibling was with her in spirit in Armenia last week by carrying a cardboard cutout of his face.
"The girls wanted Rob to enjoy Armenia," a source explains to People. Kim carried the hilarious prop while walking through the streets of Yerevan on Sunday.
While Rob has publicly made his beef with the 34-year-old reality superstar known -- comparing her to "the b**ch in Gone Girl" last month -- Kim has insisted on Keeping Up with the Kardashians that their conflict is due to her being the only one in the family to show him some tough love.
"He obviously has some kind of depression," Kim said about Rob in a recent episode, who according to their mother Kris has gained 100 pounds over the last year. "He is the king of excuses ... I'm the only one that's really tough with him so he probably avoids me the most."
But how could Rob have missed Kim and Khloe's jam-packed trip to Armenia? Aside from Kim's hubby Kanye West throwing a free surprise concert on Sunday -- which ended in mayhem after he jumped into Swan Lake mid-song -- the sisters also reunited with their cousins, who are appropriately named Kourtni, Kara and Krista.
The life-changing events didn't stop there. Kim, Kanye and Khloe visited Israel via private plane on Monday following their trip to Armenia, where the couple had their one-year-old daughter North West baptized in the Holy Land, the AP reports.
The ceremony took place at St. James Cathedral in the Armenian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. "Kim Kardashian's daughter will be baptized and become a Christian officially and a member of the Armenian Church," said Archbishop Aris Shirvanian.
Kim has noted how important her recent trip is to her.
"We are so grateful to be here & start this journey of a lifetime!" she Instagrammed on Wednesday, with a shot of the massive crowd gathered outside the sisters' hotel to welcome them to the country. "#MyDadAndGrandParentsWouldBeSoProud."
