The BDS movement urging celebrities to boycott the Jewish state can chalk up another massive failure - according to a media leak, the star celeb couple of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have booked a hotel in Jerusalem for a visit next month.
Yedioth Aharonot revealed that the famous couple booked rooms at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in the capital city, with an arrival date planned for April 12 or 13. The paper speculates they will stay in the Holy City for several days before continuing on to Jordan.
Entertainment industry insiders revealed that an Israeli security company specializing in guarding celebrities has been tapped to secure the visit.
The sources added that a confidentiality agreement worth millions has been signed regarding the visit, leading the hotel to refuse to answer questions on the topic when approached Tuesday.
Aside from sight-seeing in the 3,000-year-old capital of the Jewish people, the visit possibly is connected to reports that the Kardashian family plans to buy a luxury apartment in Tel Aviv worth 20 million shekels (about $5 million).
The apartment on 96 Yarkon Street in Tel Aviv is being eyed by Kourtney Kardashian and her husband Scott Disick, who is Jewish. If they purchase it, the apartment is likely to be used by the other Kardashian sisters as well, including Kim.
Kim Kardashian, a TV personality, has become a top celebrity in the entertainment and fashion world with a huge following online. West is a famous rapper and producer in the hip-hop music world.
The celebrity couple tied the knot last May and have a daughter, named North West.
