Kylie Jenner got a ‘business exemption to travel to Paris, she was a total tourist

For months, I actually thought Kylie Jenner was setting a pretty good example for her young fans: Kylie stayed at home, she kept to a small bubble of friends and family, and she advised people to take the pandemic seriously. But then she got bored. She lives in California, which still has some big travel, mask and social distancing rules and protocols. Kylie’s still been going out a lot recently, and she went on a trip to Turks and Caicos with Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Stormi for her birthday. Then last week, she traveled to Paris. She got a “business exemption.”

Kylie Jenner is getting back to business. According to a source, the Kylie Cosmetics guru brought a group of friends with her on a business trip to Paris where she met with cosmetics company Coty and CEO Peter Harf this week. “She was able to enter the country on a business exemption,” the insider shares. “She had meetings for her cosmetics brand and brought friends along to make a trip out of it.”

Despite travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the website for the U.S. Embassy in Paris says the French government will grant access to individuals with “business activity important to the French economy” but noted that it’s a “rare” occurrence. Additionally, any individuals traveling to France from the United Kingdom or countries outside of the European Union are required to self-isolate for two weeks, per the French consul.

On Kylie’s Instagram Story, it appears that she and her friends visited the Louvre to see the famous Mona Lisa painting, after which they went shopping and grabbed a bite to eat at a local restaurant. She later shared numerous photos of herself on a rooftop, where she was joined for two pictures by the Kardashian sisters’ favorite piece of arm candy, Fai Khadra. He posted one of the photos on his Instagram Story as well, along with a few different pictures he took at the Louvre and museums.

Yeah, I don’t get it? It’s not enough that the entire world can see how Americans are a f–king disaster within our own borders when it comes to a global public health crisis, but now we’re traveling, flouting international quarantine laws and being a–holes and ugly Americans in the middle of a pandemic? Gross. I don’t doubt that Kylie had some legit business in Paris. I also don’t doubt that much of it could have been conducted via Zoom, or a phone call, or a series of emails. She just wanted to go to Paris with her friends. She already returned to LA too, she was back by Saturday, which is when she went out clubbing with friends (see photos below). So, she didn’t quarantine when she arrived in Paris, nor did she quarantine when she returned to LA. My God.

    She got a business exemption when really she’s a piece of work.

    • M says:

      It’s quite icky that she’s posing seductively in front of a church…..

      Not an ounce of class there. There are a million more appropriate places to take photos in Paris. Why choose a church location for seductive midriff baring photos?

      • MasterandMargarita says:

        Cuz that’s all this girl can do. Pose seductively in front of a church. Literally. And charter a jet to go to Paris on an exemption. That is the totality of her brain cells.

    • Lisa says:

      OMG when did it become cool to wear Mom Jeans??? Whyyyyyyy???

  2. minx says:

    Oh, brother.

  3. OriginalLala says:

    The rules never seem to extend to the rich and famous. This is frankly, disgusting, especially because cases of COVID are rising among young people.

    • M says:

      I was in France this week for actual mandatory travel. I’m Canadian (living in the UK, but my accent could pass as American). Anyone who I had to approach for directions etc. asked me where I am from to make sure I am not American. They did not want to see Americans and upon thinking I was from the US they didn’t want to speak to me. Totally changed their demeanours when I said I was Canadian.

      The issue, I feel, is that a lot of people don’t understand how divided the US is. They just see a country who elected Trump – they don’t know it was a 50/50 split. Many just see it as one like minded group – they have no idea how many people are trying to do the right things but are overshadowed by everyone else. So I understand their disgust, but they’re seeing the country as a whole when really it’s the most divided western nation on earth.

      My point is Kyley should have been more responsible. France is having a terrible time controlling cases and Americans are not allowed for a reason. She over stepped here. Go do your work if you must but then at least enjoy yourself low key to show some respect. People just really want Americans to stay where they are and keep the mess to themselves instead of creating more problems for those already fighting their own massive battles. She’s too famous to be flaunting this. Not a strategic business move from my perspective.

      • emmy says:

        We do have TV and newspapers in Europe, you know? Not to be a d*ck about it but come on, of course we know. The thing is, that is less important to many here than it is to US citizens because the result is the same. He is the president and unfortunately, the entire world has to deal with him. We also have our own sh*t going on and when we then think about the US, he is what comes to mind right now. And when Americans travel, we really can’t known if they’re the good ones, i. e. careful and sensible about this virus.

      • Amy Too says:

        I suppose I can see Kylie somehow getting herself a travel exemption, but what about the group she travelled with? Did she claim all of her friends were actually employees? Her “security guards” and “assistants”? The traveling “for business” and then touristing around is jerky, but making it a party by bringing all kinds of friends is on a whole different level of awful. And then not doing the quarantining? How do they enforce these things? Do they just take your word for it that you’re going to quarantine? Don’t they ask you how long you’re going to be in the country? And wouldn’t you be telling on yourself by saying you plan to stay for only 3 days? Does it really just not matter if you’re wealthy? It really is beginning to seem like there are a completely different set of rules for the wealthy and famous. And not even just slyly, or on the down low, it seems like there is an open, accepted, codified, regulated, completely separate set of rules that everyone all over the world has agreed to abide by.

      • M says:

        Emmy – I believe we’re saying the same thing here. Of course you guys have TV’s and newspapers – I do and I am presuming I live near you.

        I’ve lived around the world and I know the results of many other nations elections, legislation, etc. but it would be unreasonable to know all the details of same. I know who many nations presidents are – I do not know precise election results or approval ratings for each nation etc.

        Anyways, kind of a d*ck response. Yes, we know you have a TV. But just because you have a TV I don’t expect you to have in depth knowledge of current Canadian, Czech, or Mexican politics (my home countries). Many people would not know a reasonable break down of what’s happening in the US besides it’s bad and Trump was voted into power via democracy (ish).

      • emmy says:

        @M Your entire 2nd paragraph was incredibly condescending, I was reacting to that. We know no nation or people is a monolith. We know and right now don’t have the capacity to care.

      • M says:

        Emmy – “We don’t have the capacity to care.” Yikes. Hope you can get that sorted out. Sounds quite awful. I’ll remain happy
        to empathize while you remain unable to care.

      • ODIE says:

        I know that many Canadians believe this is true, but it is contrary to my experience.

      • Ange says:

        If they think you’re American and you’re travelling during a pandemic of COURSE they’re going to think you’re one of the bad ones and treat you accordingly because on the surface that looks very frivolous and selfish and absolutely something a Trump supporter would do.

        Of course we know what’s going on and that not every American voted for Trump but put it into some context. How utterly short sighted to think it’s because of a lack of international knowledge.

      • emmy says:

        @M: Sure, tell yourself that. You care about every detail in the political landscape of every country on earth at all times? Good for you. The rest of us sometimes have their limits.

        But I see I was right about you being condescending, thanks for doubling down.

  4. Rumer says:

    There is a travel risk issued to Paris, is she crazy? That city is high risk right now. Way to spread it to your home country…

    • Bryn says:

      Cali is pretty high risk now too, she was putting more than her own country at risk. People are dumb. Stay home

      • Chrissy says:

        She’s putting her own daughter at risk. I bet she never thought of that! So dumb yet so predictable. SMH

  5. Magnet says:

    I wish this whole family would take a giant fun trip….and their plane crash into the Atlantic. Don’t care about others’ life & death in the COVID era? They can end themselves before they end others. I’ll pop the champagne when the news breaks, sorry not sorry.

    • Valkyrie333 says:

      omg I completely totally agree about their plane crashing. That would be the BEST news story ever. ALL of them gone. It’s so sickening to see these people so popular, and making money hand over fist, and now we have to deal with their stupid kids coming into the picture. Will it EVER END ???? Why does ANYONE like these people ? Who is buying their products, and why are they able to be successful ???????

    • Yup, Me says:

      Damn. Do you realize that that amount of hatred is toxic and only harmful to you?

  6. Sarah says:

    I miss Paris so much it hurts. I’m only an hour flight away and usually go one or twice a year on my way to visit family who are in Burgundy (having relocated from Paris suburbs). But if you offered me a flight over tomorrow on a private jet I would still say NO. This is ridiculous.

    Also, clubbing???

    Also also, something was bugging me about her top in the final rooftop pic and I now have it – it reminds me of a scrotum.

    • Mumbles says:

      I was thinking, mesh shopping bag full of boobs, but scrotum is better.

    • Magnet says:

      Reminds me of when Sebastian Stan was railing against ‘dumb f*ck kids down on boats partying in Miami’ while being interviewed in hard hit nyc….& then the next week he was NIGHTCLUBBING & YACHTING

      celebs are inherent hypocrites 😂 but the kardashians are a special kind. The gonorrhea of society, kind.

  7. NotHeidisGirl says:

    I fucking hate rich people.
    At least don‘t splash it all over Social Media that you‘re breaking all the rules.

  8. Lemons says:

    One, I don’t understand the proportions in her photos. Small head, huge body.

    Two, when you have the means STAY AT HOME. If you have the money to quarantine elsewhere, do it! But stay PUT! Covid-19 is dangerous because people just can’t stop spreading it. They can’t help themselves.

    It really will take the deaths of their own before this stops. She’s a mother and an aunt, so there’s really no excuse.

    • Dutch says:

      Those skewed perspective photos remind me of the Waiting Room of the Damned from Beetlejuice for some reason.

    • lucy2 says:

      I know, the top and bottom photos are really weird and disproportionate. I can’t figure out what’s happening. That last one, the “I’m so sexy in front of a church?” one looks downright bizarre, like she’s smuggling melons or something.

      Wasn’t she also throwing parties in CA or am I remembering wrong? This whole family has been jetting around like nothing’s wrong, not following quarantine rules, and it’s disgusting. Shame on her and everyone who participated in this nonsense.

    • Lemons says:

      I keep thinking about Robert Crumb’s drawings of women. They’ve always irked me, but this emphasis on having large curvy bodies with non-existent heads seems like the same thing. I’m not impressed.

  9. SamC says:

    It’s not just the rich and famous. Smaller scale… I live in RI and we are on the list with Maine requiring either a negative covid test or 14 day quarantine to be out and about in the state. Both my brothers, also RI residents, have done numerous overnights without following protocols (and both are in jobs where they are around a lot of people). When calling them out, the response was to ask why I care since I’m not a Maine resident, Mainer’s are happy to take their money, it’s not a big deal, they are staying at a private residence (but go out to eat, the beach, shop), basically they want to go to Maine so screw regulations or risk.

  10. pk says:

    It’s not just rich and famous people acting stupid. I’m disgusted by the people in my own neighborhood. Some of them are healthcare workers and have had parties the entire summer ! Teenagers having large sleepovers too. I just don’t get it. Do these people not watch the news? I start wondering am I the crazy one for staying home and being scared? I just don’t understand.

    Oh has anyone seen the commercials for the next season of their show? They show them “quarantining” and acting like they actually care about the virus when in reality they haven’t quarantined at all. They’ve been partying and travelling ! There is a scene where Khloe is coughing and acting sick. They show a man giving her a swab test up her nose. The funny thing is the guy isn’t wearing an PPE ! This show is so fake. I’m guessing she had a doc look at her sinuses for something unrelated to Covid but they are using the footage to make it seem like Khloe had a Covid scare or something. Stupid…stupid family.

    • Case says:

      I have a relative who is a healthcare worker and he was out partying with friends every. single. weekend. And guess what happened? He got COVID. Not from his high-risk job, from hanging out with friends. Luckily he’s okay now, but it’s just so dumb.

    • bakes says:

      Understanding stateinternational travel rules and regulations, there is essentially no national US strategy to combat the virus and get people back to living their lives. I am lucky to be in a state with really low cases, and to be able to work from home and have my kid schooled remotely. That said, we have been staying home except for essential trips since March and it is really starting to wear on all of us. I am heartbroken by the daily case totals and death totals, but if as a nation we are just going to let the virus run rampant then every individual is going to have to make an independent assessment of the risk level they are comfortable with. Unfortunately, this does leave to people that are wealthy being able to live more freely because it is likely they will be able to setup their own testing to make sure they are still safe while doing this. Similar to how the NBA is able to run thousands of tests a day. I’m not saying this is right, but likely a reality until there is a vaccine.

    • Naomipaige99 says:

      The whole family is fake AF!!!!! Not one thing is real about them. I’m surprised they still have people that continue to watch their show. I wish they would just go away already.

  11. Case says:

    I figured the rich and famous would get bored with being safe. It’s much more upsetting to see friends, family, and coworkers getting bored and risking their lives (and others’ lives) to go on vacation or out to eat. It’s just ridiculous and maddening to watch unfold.

    Some people in my life wonder why I’m still acting like I was in March/April. It’s simple. Just because it was safe for you to travel or go out to eat or hang out with friends one time doesn’t mean it will continue to be safe. It just means you’ve been lucky.

  12. teehee says:

    F*** is she wearing?

    F*** is she posing like that?

    …the hell… lol

  13. grabbyhands says:

    I don’t know why anyone expects anything different from any member of this grifter mob. Nothing is ever going to matter more to any of them than getting attention and likes on social media.

    Literally everything they do is geared towards this, and they’ve proven it over and over again.

  14. Jaxonmeh says:

    Yep. The rich are as stupid as everyone else. My family has been acting stupid the entirety of this. They don’t realize that they just got lucky. So far. And they continue to do stupid things because of it. My aunt is supposedly going to Disney for the second time in three months because she already got away with it once.

    And here I am skipping all the family events right now and still keeping to myself except to work. And even that, I mask and keep social distancing measures up. I don’t have the best relationship with them and I have extreme social anxiety, so I’m grateful I have a legitimate excuse to not participate on some things but it’s also extremely lonely and disheartening.

  15. MrsPanda says:

    My first thought: If I pushed her over that roof, would she bounce back up? She’s pretty much an inflatable ball now. She’s also a stupid, selfish, spoiled brat. This was clear years ago on KUWK, both her and Kendall were always spoiled little shits. Kendall in particular, but Kylie was only marginally more likable as a kid. PMK may be the devil, but if you’re going to have a sociopathic narcissist as a parent, at least with PMK you’re born into a life of luxury.

  16. Suz says:

    Kylie’s business is showing off her fake butt and boobs on Instagram. She did that in Paris. Hence she was there on business. 🙄

  17. Jules says:

    I’m so surprised by this. Said NO ONE.

  18. tan says:

    Why do women pose like this and think they look sexy? She looks constipated.

  19. Mrs. Peel says:

    Is her assistant licking her toes or something in the last pic?

  20. L4frimaire says:

    Regarding her trip Turks and Caicos, a lot of Caribbean countries have seen a big spike in Covid cases due to tourists coming in, mostly from the US. It doesn’t help that the main gateway to these countries are Florida airports. A lot of these celebrities are just tired of lockdown, but have the means and connections to get around travel restrictions, unlike the rest of us who are stuck at home and broke.

  21. Truthiness says:

    Gawd… We are leaking our trash out into other countries. If anyone reading this is from those countries, SORRY!

  22. Mika says:

    But Covid is boooooooring. She wants to go out!!!!! Is France not aware that she wants to go out??!!

  23. Mina_Esq says:

    I believe her business story. August isn’t really a good time to visit Paris, as a lot of the cute little shops and restaurants are closed due to owners being on holidays. As an aside – poor Kylie is a perfect example that money can’t but you style and class. YIkes.

  24. Ellie says:

    Those ridiculous fake boobs are like halfway down her torso already! They’re like aligned with her elbows ffs..
    Why would a young woman do this to herself?!

  25. Smiles says:

    This girl is an irresponsible twat. Business meeting? Have an effing zoom call! “Meetings” in Paris and a vacay to Turks and Caicos and not practicing any sort of required quarantine… unbelievable! Who in the hell poses like that in front of a church? Oh that’s right a Kardashian- Jenner blow up doll. *end rant*

  26. Naomipaige99 says:

    She and her family are self entitled twit!!!!!
