Kardashian church visit causes a ruffle with an Armenian bishop

2015-04-13 17:00

Armenia – Kim, along with Kanye, North and Khloe on Saturday were in Gyumri, a city 90 kilometers (55 miles) northwest of the capital Yerevan, where records show some Kardashian ancestors lived.

When the entourage went into the Cathedral of the Holy Mother of God, bodyguards tried to close its doors to keep journalists and onlookers away.

But the local bishop, Mikayel Adjapagian, sharply objected to obstructing worshippers from the church.

The bodyguards relented and the doors stayed open.


But that hasn’t stopped Armenia from praising the Kardashians for their presence.

From tasting different foods to sightseeing to surprise performances and everything in between, they have now also been offered permanent residence there as well.

An Armenian company gave a plot of land to the family in remembrance of where their ancestors come from.

Khloe on Friday posted on Facebook a photo of a certificate granting her, Kim and their families a plot of land in a housing subdivision outside the capital Yerevan.
