Kim Kardashian is many things:

A sex tape star. A waste of very large breasts. The fiancee of Kanye West.

But fashion maven would like to make one thing very clear: she is not a member of The Illuminati!

Some believe otherwise, however, after Kim wished good friend Brittny Gastineau a happy birthday on Wednesday.


She did so via message (“Happy Birthday to my best friend… We’ve shared soooo many memories over the past years! I love you!”) and also via a collage that appears to invoke the pyramid symbol often associated with this ancient secret society.

Following a slew of comments from those wondering if Kim was part of the sect that was founded in the late 18th century and which opposes superstition, prejudice and religious influence over public life, Kardashian posted a confused response on Twitter.

“What is the illuminate? A religion?… I’m a Christian. A cult?… not into that sorry!” Kim wrote, adding of the image above:

“It had an eye on it, which reminded me of Britt bc her company ‘eye on glam’ & reminds me of against evil eye bracelets we wear. So sorry guys it was just a cool design I saw on one of those IG collage apps.”

So we guess that settles that.

But what is the illuminate, Kim?!? Go pick up a copy of The Da Vinci Code for the answer. If Kanye will allow it, that is.
