Kim Kardashian’s Intruder Thought He Had a Job Interview, Baffles Everyone
That’s right: Kim Kardashian’s intruder actually wanted to work for her. And that, my friends, is the weirdest thing about this story.
So remember how over the weekend, some random dude showed up at Kim Kardashian’s house in Beverly Hills with luggage saying that he was intending to stay there? No? Well, in case you didn’t hear, it happened. The story goes like this, according to TMZ: When the guy wouldn’t leave, naturally, Kim freaked out (to be fair, I probably would have, too) and had her security guys call the police. Here’s the wacky thing: It turns out that the stranger was convinced that he actually had a job interview scheduled with Kim.
Of course my immediate reaction to this news is “I’m sorry, what?!”—though not for the reason that you might think. It’s possible that this makes me a terrible person, but I’m not shocked by the fact that an intruder tried to work his way into Kim’s home. I’m shocked that said intruder ACTUALLY WANTED TO WORK FOR HER. Would you want to work for Kim Kardashian? I certainly wouldn’t, no matter how good the pay is!… But maybe that’s just me.
LAPD officials told the L.A. Times that the man believed Kim flew him in from North Carolina for the aforementioned job interview. It’s unclear whether he’s suffering from some sort of delusion or whether he has simply been the victim of a mean prank; however, the evidence is strongly in favor of the former. The big tip-off? Well, let’s put it this way: When was the last time someone flew you out somewhere for a job interview and actually put you up in their own house? Because that’s not standard procedure, even for reality stars. Especially for reality stars, one even might argue, because opening your home to someone you don’t know is a huge security risk—even more so if you’re a well-known public figure.
In any event, the cops determined that the man wasn’t a threat and gave him a ride back to the airport, where he presumably caught the next flight back to the North Carolina. Moral of the story: Before you go anywhere for a job interview, make sure the job actually exists first. Or, y’know, just steer clear of Kim Kardashian. Either works.
