Several weeks after the 2021 Met Gala, rumors persist that Khloé Kardashian was banned from the star-studded event. The reality star has finally cleared the air on the issue. See her statement.
"Keeping up with the Kardashians" star and denim mogul Khloé Kardashian took to social media recently to clear up the rumors claiming she was barred from attending this year's Met Gala.
The 37-year-old socialite is the only member of the Kardashian-Jenner family who reportedly has not received an official invite from the prestigious social gathering of renowned Hollywood celebrities.
On Twitter, Khloé decided to entertain questions from fans. One Twitter user took the opportunity to ask the co-founder of Good American Jeans if the Met Gala rumors were true. Dismissing the rumors, Khloé wrote:
"Absolutely NOT True."
Khloé has never attended the gala that annually takes place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The elite guest list curator is Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour.
Khloé's equally-fashionable siblings Kim, Kourtney, Kylie, and Kendall Jenner, including their mom-ager Kris Jenner, are reportedly part of the benefit event's official guest list every year.
Besides starting a trend, she, Kim, and Kourtney reportedly started filming their new reality show in Malibu.
However, for this year, Kourtney and Kylie skipped the event. The Kylie Cosmetics founder's absence comes after revealing she is expecting her second child with rapper Travis Scott.
As for Kourtney's nonappearance in the recent event, an insider reportedly said the Poosh founder did not show up because she did not want Khloé to feel left out.
Khloé previously expressed she was not okay with being excluded from Met Gala for being "too C list," according to Mirror. She also posted a message urging her fans to "make the decision to be happy."
Despite reportedly being uninvited, Khloe has publicly supported her sisters' and mom's appearance at the social event. She once posted on Twitter in 2019, gushing over their stunning Met Gala looks.
The cold shoulder and swirling rumors do not seem to bother her anymore. Especially now that she and her sisters are working on an exciting reality TV show that is set to premiere on the streaming service Hulu soon.
They scored a multi-year deal with Hulu to produce new content, but details of their new show remain unknown. The whole clan previously ended their 20-season "KUWTK" TV series in June 2021.
