It would appear that Kim Kardashian waited for the furor to die down about the flour bomb stunt, before deciding not to file a formal criminal complaint. It was widely reported at the time, and seems entirely plausible, that Kardashian staged the publicity stunt as Keeping Up With The Kardashians cameras rolled (just as she did when a drink was thrown by a random during a scripted fight on Kourtney & Kim Take New York season one).
The cameras are currently filming and the woman identified as the bomber has a sister who’s appeared on the show. It screams stunt for publicity, for sympathy, the same way her relationship with Kanye West is currently being mutually-exploited for financial gain. It’s all been part of their laboured, contrived plans.
RadarOnline.com is reporting, contrary to earlier reports from TMZ.com, that Kardashian is no longer interested in filing a criminal complaint against Christina Cho.
The day after the stunt, Kardashian phoned in to TMZ Live where she continued to shill the perfume being promoted on the red carpet the night the flour bombing took place. She told TMZ Live she couldn’t file charges and be present at the event. So she declined. However, later, TMZ reported that Kardashian would file which appears to have been planted information to make it look as though Kardashian distanced herself from the incident so it would look less faked (logic dictates she won’t charge someone she hired for a stunt on her show).
Now RadarOnline confirms what we knew already, Kardashian isn’t really going to file. She’s back to the old “I don’t have time” excuse: “Kim Kardashian has decided not to file a formal police report against Christina Cho, the woman who threw a flour bomb on the reality star last month. Kim was flour bombed by the PETA activist at West Hollywood hotel, The London. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department took a non-criminal battery report of the incident that night, and Cho was briefly taken into custody, but wasn’t arrested.”
A source tries to explain this away: ”Kim ultimately decided that it was going to be more trouble than it was worth, and she didn’t want to give Christina Cho a platform for her to promote whatever agenda she obviously has. Kim is just too busy and has so much going on with her life to file the report, meet with investigators and possibly testify at a trial if Cho was going to be charged. Remember, only prosecutors can determine if charges are ever going to be filed, that decision was never up to Kim. What Kim could have done is filed a formal complaint or a police report and then that would have been turned over to prosecutors to determine if there was enough evidence to charge Cho. Kim is already going through exhausting and taxing divorce proceedings, she doesn’t want to get involved in yet another legal drama.”
Sooo… there was no arrest and there will be no complaint. Convenient?
