Israeli Newspaper Estimates Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Spent Almost $1M on Israel Trip
Israeli newspapers are reporting that on their recent trip to Israel, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West spent nearly $1 million on various expenditures.
Among the luxurious big ticket items the celebrity couple paid for was a presidential suite at a top hotel, a flight on a private jet and armored vehicles, among other things.
The couple, who traveled with their daughter, North, and Kim’s sister Khloe, rented the private jet to transport a team of 25 people that accompanied them, including photographers, make-up artists, assistants and security guards from Armenia. These expenses alone cost them approximately $200,000.
When they landed at the airport, they were greeted by reception staff from Leopard – a VIP services company, ensuring that their arrival in Ben Gurion would run smoothly, according to Israel’s Channel 2.
They left the airport in a fleet of armored EE911 vehicles, personally selected by Kim herself. In order to ensure that they were well protected, they hired one of the top security firms in Israel, for approximately $300,000.
From the airport, they made their way to the prestigious “David Citadel” Hotel in Jerusalem, where Kanye had booked a Presidential Suite for himself and Kim, costing approximately $8000 a night. Along with the rooms for their staff, the total hotel bill was approximately $85,000 for the entire stay.
Then there was the couple’s meal with Jerusalem’s Mayor, Nir Barkat, at the upscale “Monah” restaurant in Jerusalem which cost around $800.
Additionally, the individual responsible for planning the visit, for months and in secrecy, was Sharon Shavit, and the cost of her services was approximately $40,000.
Finally, their flight back home, aboard an Air France jet that was rented out privately for the couple, cost them approximately $30,000.
