Kim Kardashian Sees Teen Identity Thief Put Behind BarsBy: Amanda Crum - February 3, 2014
Kim Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner, were reportedly two targets of identity theft for a teen who stole several thousands of dollars from them, and he has now been sentenced to 3 ½ years in federal prison.
Luis Flores Jr. allegedly took over $70,000 from Jenner, although it’s not known how much he might have gotten from Kim. According to Msn.com, Flores gained access to Kim’s social security number and attempted to change it to his own on her accounts. He was busted in May when he attempted to have her credit cards changed over to his address in Florida, and authorities believe he may have been involved in thefts targeting Tom Cruise and Bill Gates, among others.
Kardashian has been in the news recently for everything from going back to brunette to her worries about stepdad Bruce Jenner’s physical transformation possibly ruining her wedding.
There are a lot of rumors surrounding Jenner and the change in his appearance, and while nothing has been confirmed, he reportedly had a procedure done to reduce the appearance of his Adam’s apple recently. A “source” told the Mirror that Kim is upset at the idea of Jenner possibly stealing the spotlight from her.
“Kim is fed up having to field questions about Bruce wanting to be a woman,” an insider said, as quoted in the Mirror. “She thinks he’s trying to steal her thunder. Kim had her heart set on a traditional ceremony with Bruce walking her down the aisle and giving her away. If he’s a woman by then, she absolutely won’t have it.”
However, Bruce’s sons, Brody and Brandon, have laughed off the rumors that their father is going through a transformation and say that he began having plastic surgery procedures after “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” became so popular.
“The boys don’t think their father is trying to become a woman and simply laugh at rumours,” a source said. “They do believe that Bruce became more conscience of his physical appearance and how he looked after Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered. They blame their step-mother (Kris) for all of the plastic surgery he has had over the years. Kris always encouraged Bruce to have his face nipped and tucked. He has had plastic surgery to remove excess fat above his eyelids. The Adam’s apple surgery is just following in that pattern.”
