Kim Kardashian has ended up at the centre of an illegal art smuggling row after an ancient Roman sculpture was imported in her name to California. The US officials claim that the statue was stolen from Italy.
As per media reports the court documents list the importer name “Kim Kardashian dba Noel Roberts Trust in Woodland Hills, California.” An invoice states, “for the sale of the defendant statue by Vervoordt to Noel Robert Trust, dated March 11, 2016.” The Noel Roberts Trust is linked to Kim Kardashian and her estranged husband Kanye West’s real estate purchases in the US, as per the report.
Kim has, however, denied purchasing the sculpture. A spokesperson for Kardashian told CNN, “We believe that it may have been purchased using her name without authorisation and because it was never received (and) she was unaware of the transaction. We encourage an investigation and hope that it gets returned to the rightful owners.”
