The formerReal Housewives of Atlanta star fired off a cease and desist to the photo agency selling the photos, claiming that they weren't taken yesterday (but she doesn't say exactly when they were taken).
According to TMZ, "Kim feels the agency defamed her by creating a made-up scandal — and she also claims the photog was trespassing when the smoking pics were taken." She says they DID get photos of her yesterday, but she was wearing black sweat pants seen here. Interestingly, the tank top looks the same in both pics.
The agency did take down the photo set in question, but they are still selling the photos of Kimsmoking at the beach earlier this month before she confirmed her pregnancy to the world.
So far the photo agency hasn't asked us to take them down (or any other media outlet that we know of). We'll keep you posted.
The expectant Don't Be Tardy star was initially spotted on the beach puffing away before she went public with her pregnancy. And yesterday morning Kim was photographed as she chatted on the phone outside her home. I guess the positive thing to note here is that at least she's not smoking in the house with Ariana, Brielle, KJ and Kash.
The Don't Be Tardy star has apparently been hiding the pregnancy because she's probably brokering some big announcement with a tabloid. Hot on the heels of the news, The Daily Mail captured Kim allegedly smoking while sporting a noticeable baby bump during a recent vacation with her family.
