Kim Kardashian & Pete Davidson really are in London for the Platinum Jubbly

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have been in London this week and no one knows why. Kim was like this with Kanye West sometimes too – they would just fly to some city for a few days and we would only find out later that they did a photoshoot or visited friends or something. I don’t think that’s what Kim and Pete were doing though, I think it started out as a vacation. The thing is, everyone knows that the UK four-day Jubilee weekend is happening. So people did wonder “is Kim about to gatecrash the Jubbly?” Turns out, that was her plan. Instead of gatecrashing the Jubbly, royal aides decided to gatekeep the reality star and billionaire.

She may be the Queen of celebrities, but Kim Kardashian’s dream of joining the official Platinum Jubilee celebrations in the UK have been dashed. Despite her best efforts, officials at Buckingham Palace have rejected her pleas to attend the Platinum Party at the Palace on Saturday. Representatives for the star, 41 — who landed in the UK with her boyfriend Pete Davidson, 28, this week — asked for tickets But the Palace turned the American couple down, as did publicists at the BBC, which will broadcast the show.

Kim was so determined to attend that a source told the Daily Mail she is trying to acquire tickets by other means — and has even said she doesn’t mind if the tickets are ‘not VIP’.

They said: ‘Kim rarely gets turned down to attend any event, so this has been quite surprising, especially as she doesn’t visit the UK often. Kim and Pete love the Royal Family and really wanted to be a part of this special celebration.’

It’s not clear if the Jubilee celebrations were the only reason for the couple’s trip to London. The likes of Queen, Diana Ross and Nile Rodgers will perform at the event, while Sir David Attenborough and David Beckham will make appearances. Some 10,000 tickets were allocated via a public ballot, and 7,500 have been given to key workers, those in the Armed Forces, volunteers and charities. Members of the Royal Family are expected to attend on behalf of the Queen, who is ‘pacing herself’ but will be watching on TV from Windsor Castle.

[From The Daily Mail]

Yes, lord help the Windsors if some American celebrities turn up at… a public concert and party staged in London. The question is more like… why did Kim even want to go? I know she fancies herself “American royalty,” but this is not the way! Maybe it’s all bullsh-t though, maybe she and Pete are just on vacation and/or she has some kind of work to do in London.

    What’s wrong with Kim’s face?

    • Sue E Generis says:

      She’s definitely done something else. Jaw work? She looks like a comic book character.

      • Merricat says:

        Uncanny valley.

      • Tanguerita says:

        She might have had some additional work done, but she also lost a lot of weight lately.

      • snappyfish says:

        Jaw work. Was looking at this photo last night with a. friend who is a plastic surgeon. She says it looks like a string lift as the down time is very minimal and we just saw her at the wedding a week ago.

      • February Pisces says:

        It might just be down to weight loss. Or she could of had some sort of double chin fat removal.

    • Smart&Messy says:

      Her face looks painful and like it was made of clay or somerhing. She used to be so pretty. Even her latest face before this was pretty. I never cared about her much, bit it still makes me sad.

      Weirdly, she looks more stoned than Pete in these pics, and like she was trying hard not to show it.

    • rainbow kitty says:

      That was my thought. She (all of them actually) looks like an empty shell. Their faces are pulled so high and tight. It’s very strange that this is what is considered beautiful. I will try and shield my young daughter from this world of ridiculous beauty standards as long as possible- as hard as that may be.

    • BeanieBean says:

      You’ve all said what I was thinking! As for the why, I’m pretty sure the Kardashians have some kind of contract with the Daily Mail, so maybe the DM is funding this.
      I’ve been wondering about this concert–any younger performers at all? What a great opportunity to showcase new talent. Then again, maybe it’s not an event younger people would want to be associated with.

    • Paige says:

      SEEMINGLY OVERNIGHT? After years of struggle –
      she actually looks NORMAL????

      • Paige says:

        ok-Ive thought about it:
        breasts plants removed
        Whatever was in ass removed
        is it me or is she a NORMAL body now??

      • AnnaKist says:

        I was talking about this with my sister today. I have a theory. I think since she split with Kanye, she’s been getting fat sucked out from every possible place she can. Notice her bum is really small now, compared to photos of a couple of years ago? And those clothes she’s always in – unless she’s attending a big event that calls for a gown – they could well be compression garments. I once saw a documentary where a doctor was demonstrating liposuction. The interviewer asked him what after-care the patient required, and one thing stuck in my mind. The doctor said they have to wear these girdle things – compression garments – to help the skin ease back into the body, and to make sure the remaining fat distribution is evenly spread. He said they could only do a minimal amount at each session , another reason why patients had to wear these garments in between Lipo session When asked how long patients had to do this, the doctor replied, “23 hours per day for several months.” This is what makes me think she has been doing this for a long time, hence her uniform of these very tight leggings. I remember some years ago seeing photos on this site where she was sitting down or moving around and the hemline or even the The garment itself was visible through her clothing or because the wind had blown her dress up. I also remember reading or hearing her say that she sometimes wore two pairs of Spanx. Remembering all of this and seeing this transformation makes me think that that’s what she’s been up to. Then add in the mix of her older sister getting with Travis Barker, and trying to transform herself into a rock chick, I can see Kim going all out to look like a 20-something girl with a bad-boy boyfriend. And what was the caption on the article about her on this site yesterday? That’s right: Kim and poop.

      • FHMom says:

        She actually looks too skinny. Everywhere. Usually she is so out of proportion. I have no idea what is happening but it’s noticeable.

      • ME says:

        Doesn’t anyone find it odd she won’t ever talk about all the plastic surgery she has gotten and continues to get, but she’ll gladly say she’ll eat sh*t if it makes her younger. I just don’t understand her. God forbid she tell the truth for once. We all know her body is not from diet and exercise. We all know she’s changed every little thing about her face. We have pics/videos of what she used to look like. But damn it if she ever admits to work she’s had done !

      • LIONE says:

        If you google pictures of her you can find pictures from her going outside to her (new?) grey car and she still has her diaper butt. She lost weight, though, and probably did something plastic surgery, but her butt is still big and disproportionate.

    • Asking for a Friend says:

      Is it her nose?

      • Suzybeontime says:

        It is! Another nose job. These women will fall apart as they get older.

    • Lady Luna says:

      I was just going to ask that! What did she do to her face now?

    • Christina says:

      She lost weight and is probably is a regular at her plastic surgeon’s office, but I think the biggest difference in her face is that she has a genuine smile in pictures now when she is with Davidson or her kids. She didn’t do that previously. When she was with Kanye, she said it was to prevent wrinkles. When she isn’t smiling, she looks the same to me.

      • CuriousCole says:

        Christina, that is a strikingly sad comment, but I agree. She’s actually smiling, in a way she hasn’t for years upon years.

  2. LEvans says:

    In this instance, the Windsors should be grateful that Kim wanted to attend and the press (at least non RR) would have been good!

    • Snuffles says:

      I know, right? It’s a concert. The more celebrities the better. It’s not like they were trying to get on the balcony for Trooping or attend the church service. This is the celebrity heavy event. What’s the big whoop?

      • Jais says:

        Gatekeeping a public concert seems snobby, even if it is Kim. Are tix already sold out or something so she couldn’t get one? I mean most people do have to plan ahead and buy tix to something if it’s going to sell out. But would think that the royals would recognize their counterparts. For some, the royals are nothing more than tax-paid Kardashians. Actually that’s prob why they don’t want them there. Too many connections could be made.

      • MeganC says:

        The Kardashians are not the counterpart to the BRF. The idea that Kim could show up uninvited and be handed tickets to an official event is ridiculous.

      • Selene says:

        I agree @MeganC, I felt a wave of secondhand embarrassment when I read this. She lacks self awareness and was so over her head with this! They laughed at her and Kendall at the Emmys, so you would think she got the message…

      • BlueDot says:

        In this case it’s not that they’re trying to gatekeeper the concert. It’s that the tickets weren’t ever on sale (as far as I’m aware). They were balloted to members of the public and key workers.

  3. MsIam says:

    Of course they are. Did Kim try and borrow one of Diana’s dress to wear? We shall see.

    • Amy T says:

      Since Diana was probably the size of several Kims (I think D was 5’ 11” compared to K’s barely 5’), that would be quite a sight.

      • MsIam says:

        Well she couldn’t fit Marilyn Monroe’s dress either but that didn’t stop our Kim, lol!

    • VoominVava says:

      LMAO so funny! I wouldn’t put it past her! She just idolizes herself doesn’t she.
      Poor Kim, she and her boyfriend even went platinum for the platinum jubbly only to be turned away. It must be nice living in that bubble.

  4. Sue E Generis says:

    Meh, this is the Kardashian way. They’re like a virus. They choose a target/institution that wants to avoid them at all costs, then they are repeatedly repelled but keep coming back. Eventually, they find a crack and ooze their way in, take over whatever it is, and leave the brand damaged and covered in slime.

    This is like Vogue, the Met Gala etc. Once the Kardashians have arrived, it’s over.

    • mia girl says:

      Yup. Perfect summary.

    • SAS says:

      It’s so true! Even the sites that were originally hilariously skewering the Kardashians (eg. Nori’s black book, Benny Drama), once they’re targeted and cozied up to by the family all the bite goes out. Maybe that’s the attraction to the royals (colonisers gonna colonise).

      She looks really cute here though.

    • DrFt says:

      Yes to all of THIS.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    Are we really going to be shocked that she tries to insert herself into every situation that will gain her attention?

  6. Southern Fried says:

    “her dream of joining the official Platinum Jubilee celebrations…”
    Her addiction to making a spectacle of herself is more like it. Maybe they should let her come nude except for gold ropes, ribbons and dollar store medals.

    • Culture Cannibal says:

      She has done something *really* intense to her jawline. That’s not just lipo and threads. That’s, like, some kind of implant/reconstruction jobby.

      Why does this stunt queen want to hang out at this gross party, anyway
      Wouldn’t it be better for her brand to try and worm her way into the Sussex orbit?

      • Mel says:

        Wouldn’t it be better for her brand to try and worm her way into the Sussex orbit? Who said that wasn’t the plan? She’s got to be somewhere where they are first…..

    • marie says:

      I just love that she doesn’t understand “no.” She wants it and she admires them so therefore she should get to. The very definition of entitlement.

  7. Pix says:

    Her eyebrows look great.

  8. Melissa says:

    Jesus she is dumb. You can flex your trash celebratory some places but no. I’m so glad she was rejected, girl needs to learn boundaries and this is hilarious. She truly is no one outside of a trash porn star.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Meh she worked for her money unlike the Windsors. as for being a trash porn star didn’t air miles Andy date a trash porn star, Koo Stark, at one time?

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      Saying she is only a trash porn star says more about you than her.
      She is many things, mom, business woman, campaigner for Penal reform, reality TV actress, and sex did a sex tape
      If each of us was boiled down to our least point what a world it would be. You don’t have to like her but stop reducing women. Plenty of pointless misogyny in that post

  9. caitlin says:

    If it weren’t for the headline, I wouldn’t have known it was Kim!!

  10. Lucy says:

    Maybe it’s the angle but she looks like Madam (the puppet) here. Girl…

  11. Truthiness says:

    Remember when Kim got pregnant with her first at the same time as Kate? She thought it was so cool to have this in common, it was like they were twinning, and she viewed herself as some kind of princess. Then she gained a ton of weight while Kate stayed slim and she said “stop comparing us, you’re mean!” Also her face looks new. Again.

  12. Genevieve says:

    What I want to know is what is Pete doing with her? I mean, obviously I know next to nothing about either of these people, but photo assumptions are telling me he is not into this nonsense. How is this relationship lasting?

    • Smart&Messy says:

      Pete does look like he wants to be anywhere but there. I doubt he gives a crap about the royals either. But doesn’t he have a movie coming out in the near future? It’ publicity and it’s a bit embarrasing, but harmless. He needs name recognition to get the movie career he seems to be going for.

  13. Eurydice says:

    I don’t understand. Did Kim think it was like getting last-minute half-price at TKTS?

  14. Gibby says:

    I would not doubt at all she is trying to get into everything, she just looks pathetic. If she goes, probably as a guest for the daily mail or something, she will either Diana cosplay or wear a gloved catsuit. Also I doubt Pete is obsessed with the royals

  15. Becks1 says:

    Remember when Kim got married after Kate (who was that, the basketball player? IDK) and People had a spread calling it AMERICA’S ROYAL WEDDING! I actually think that might have been a quote from Kim. Like……no. Especially not 11 years ago, most people barely knew who Kim was at that point.

    Anyway I’m laughing bc I avoid the Kardashian posts on here for the most part but you all know I am all over the royal posts, so I was torn here. What to do, what to do. do I honk or do I keep driving?? lol. and here i am.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Ha! This must be the car crash you just had to see.

    • VoominVava says:

      HA ! It’s okay to look sometimes LOL

    • Fabiola says:

      By the time Kim got married to the basketball player everyone knew who she was by then. I remember the radio stations calling it America’s version of the royal wedding. I truly don’t get why she would be interested in going. She’s never expressed any interest in the royals especially as an American why would she care to go?

  16. LightPurple says:

    Did she walk into a surgeon’s office and say she wanted to look like Kate Bosworth after bad surgery?

  17. Muggs says:

    Waiting for her to come back to the states with the “full Madonna” fake accent

  18. Mel says:

    The delusion is STRONG in this one. He looks uncomfortable and her latest face isn’t that good. She looks like a mad clown.

  19. girl_ninja says:

    Oddly enough, Kim and KKKate share similarities. Anything to get to the top and addicted to messing with their faces. Kim does seem to work though, so there is the difference.

  20. Kris says:

    I think part of what looked so wrong with KK and the Marilyn dress was that Marilyn always had a look of softness.

    The Ks seem to see natural flesh as the enemy because they’ve all had any extra trimmed away, which has resulted in a tight, somewhat pinched look for many of them.

    As one ages there’s only so much you can take away before it starts to almost distort your appearance. Smooth and tight are not the only or most important characteristics of youth or well-being.

  21. Lynne says:

    Tickets were distributed a long time ago with a lottery for citizens. Her showing up doesn’t mean that she is entitled. She just wanted publicity being there and she got it.

  22. Lisa says:

    who is that woman? she looks like she wants to be in the next avatar movie

    • ME says:

      I noticed she finally got rid of her fake tan. She’s back to being a White woman now.

  23. Sue E Generis says:

    Pete doesn’t look happy. Could the constant media/public attention be getting to him? He doesn’t strike me as someone who wants to be ‘on’ all the time – right outfit, right look, right event, right photo. I actually think that will be their undoing. It must feel like such a grind.

    • KC says:

      Personally, and I said this from the start of their thing, I think Pete likes attention. That being said, I may agree with you that he doesn’t like always being “on”. That and he’s finally bored. I’m sure they’re enjoying themselves between the sheets but I don’t get her appeal to him still. At first she’s attractive and he got a lot of pr, but now, what do they do together? What do they talk about? Clothes? Money? Law? It’s not possible to be knocking boots at all times. When they have to do real life he can make her laugh and all but it must be rather dull for him.

      Also, I think she looks like herself just like a very thin version because she recently lost so much weight.

      • LIONE says:

        Yeah, people think they know Pete because of the branding his publicists did earlier in his career as being laid back and chill about everything. But if you take a look at every move he makes in his career and personally, you see he is climbing and wanting this attention.

        We are the company we keep. And Pete chose the Kardashians. That’s who he is.

  24. Emily says:

    I actually thought she was looking more natural lately. Less implants, less makeup, looks happier. I wonder if the weight loss is making jaw/cheek implants/fillers more obvious.

  25. Jillieb says:

    HahahA I think it’s great! Take those royals down some notches. They are the real inbred trash

  26. ME says:

    She was jealous of Kourtney so she had to go get herself a tatted White boy too. She was jealous of Khloe’s weight loss so she went and got a tonne of shit done to look skinnier. She can’t let her sisters have any attention. She is beyond jealous of any woman that gets more attention than her…lol and now it’s the Queen’s turn ! Kim must be the one getting all the attention at the Jubilee. How dare they not invite her !

  27. Nedsdag says:

    Please, Kim! Just stop! You’re embarrassing yourself.

  28. AmelieOriginal says:

    I think Pete is finally over it. He doesn’t like constant paparazzi attention, he did that once with Ariana Grande and it ended badly. The end is nigh I think. It’s okay, it was fun while it lasted! Kim looks incredibly happy though, I’m guessing being with Pete has been a breath of fresh air. I do find it interesting she’s the one who approached Pete and not the other way around.

    • ME says:

      She’s making sure she’s smiling in every pap pic…it’s so calculated. It’s all for show. I trust nothing this family does or says. I think Kim’s ego was hurt when Pete didn’t show up for her SNL after-party. How dare any guy not want her? Remember she accused Tyson Beckford of being gay because he said he wasn’t into her. Plus she’s on this “skinny White girl” kick right now. She needs a skinny White dude to compliment her new image. If it wasn’t for her dating Pete, would anyone be talking about her right now? Probably not.

  29. Yo says:

    The only skin Kimmy hasnt tried on is white so she’s having fun turning all WASPY. Everyday she grosses me out more. Her reaches obviously going down since she’s having PR people plant her stupid Instagram post in the news like it’s news worthy or somethingLuckily Pete looks over it.. She’s clearly not the same girl he fell in love with anymore

    • Julia K says:

      Love?? They’re using each other. They are adults and apparently okay with this arrangement.

  30. J. Ferber says:

    She had her jaw elongated? Why? Brooklyn Beckham’s wife had her jaw shortened. I guess you can go both ways with it. The insanity.

  31. laurie says:

    I just can’t understand how someone (Pete) can be in a relationship with someone else (Kim) who is constantly having lipo and various plastic surgery procedures. How do they have a relationship if she’s constantly in compression garments? Are there drains? It boggles my mind. And yes, he really does not look happy in these pics

  32. J. Ferber says:

    laurie, you are cracking me up with the “compression garments” and “drains.” It’s really true though. Every time he goes to see her, she probably has some surgery-related recovery to do.

  33. Lusaka mummy says:

    Kim has always wanted the in with British royalty. I remember when she was pregnant or after that she had sent Kate some gifts for George but the RF sent them back. K and K were pregnant at the same time as someone had mentioned above. My memory is rather sketchy but i remember reading that she wanted the Cambs to invite her for tea or something.

  34. Justjj says:

    I really wonder if Kim is trying to morph into Ariana’s Sweetener days with the platinum, hair pulled back, dramatic weight loss, lighter skin, (no spray tanning, as Pete himself once criticized Ariana for doing). She was with Kanye so long it seems like she lost herself a little bit, but is she one of those types that tries to become the ideal of whoever she’s with? Ugh
