Celebrity superstar Kim Kardashian and the rest of her famous family certainly know how to splash the cash on lavish holidays – even during the coronavirus lockdown!
Here at The Mirror, we take a look at some of the reality TV star’s most luxe trips – and the backlash that followed from travelling during the pandemic for becoming ‘Covidiots’.
She made her first trip during the pandemic back in March, and has continued to cause controversy amongst fans up until now as the family have blatantly ignored rules in a bid to “pretend things are normal” on their luxe getaways.
It would appear the Kardashians have ignored all backlash received from furious fans in October after flying out to a private island for Kim’s 40th birthday, as they are currently on vacation in Tahoe.
They have been staying at their luxury holiday home Gunbarrel Lodge at the heart of Lakeview Ski since earlier this month – and it seems the clan are prepared to spend Christmas together, completely ignoring the high threat of coronavirus in LA.
Seven of the clan – including Kris Jenner, her boyfriend Corey Gamble, daughters Kendall, Khloe, Kourtney, Kim and family friend Scott Disick – all posed for a family snap.
Kim’s husband Kanye was nowhere to be seen, but the close-knit family also brought their children along on the trip.
She shared the snap on Instagram, writing: “Tahoe w the fam.”
Kim brushed off all comments from her fans as she shared multiple snaps from the winter break.
One raged: “Nice stay at home order being followed lol,” as another asked: “Why are you all together? Many families are doing the right thing and staying apart for Xmas. Guess rules don’t apply to the likes of you.”
Their eye-watering break costs a whopping £4,500 a night.
Kim ignored California’s non-essential travel ban to take a lavish six-day break in Tahiti to celebrate her 40th birthday.
The jaw-droppingly expensive break saw Kim joined by her extensive family and friends despite soaring Covid cases back in the United States.
It’s no wonder lots of people got the hump and slated her on social media as Kim rented a £15,000-a-night private tropical island and flew all her guests to the glamorous bash using a luxury private jet.
Socialite sister Kendall Jenner and sister Kourtney were both at the rumoured $1million celebrations as they all took turns in spamming social media with photos of beach banquets and boat rides.
Sharing a series of boastful pictures to social media, Kardashian wrote that the group had headed on the trip to “pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time”, but the comments were branded “tone-deaf” and even sparked their own meme.
American actor Tom Payne, star of Prodigal Son on FOXTV, was just one of many people perplexed by Kim’s bragging.
He blasted on Twitter: “This thread is so unbelievably awful. This is no being ‘humbled’.”
Another tweet with 4,300 likes read: “You know what would have felt normal for me, Kim? Not having to say goodbye to my mother over FaceTime as she was dying of COVID … Rubbing in this in our faces is cruel & clueless.”
The mum-of-four made her first trip during the pandemic to Paris to accompany husband Kanye West at his runway show for Paris Fashion Week.
News of the deadly virus started to spread at this point, so momager Kris asked on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians: “Wait, have you guys heard about this new virus?”
However Kim took her daughter North, older sister Kourtney and her daughter Penelope on a break to the city despite their worried mum telling them to reconsider the trip.
They were seen picking up little Eiffel Tower souvenirs from a street seller, before hitting the carousel for a quick ride.
Shortly after they returned home from the lavish trip, the family were forced to begin filming the show from their iPhones as the pandemic got worse.
They discovered face masks and how to use Zoom for family video calls as they were separated due to the lockdown.
Prior to the pandemic, the famous family have been all over the world on lavish getaways – including to Dubai and Iceland.
Here’s a look at some more below.
And it’s not just this year the Kardashian clan have splashed the cash on luxurious holidays…
Kim enjoyed an expensive jaunt to Japan in 2018, staying at some of the best hotels Tokyo has to offer.
She relaxed at the luxury Shangri-La hotel, named as one of the top five hotels in country.
The girls enjoyed afternoon tea and relaxed in the award-winning CHI Spa.
The Kardashian clan rented a £17,000-a-night villa in Costa Rica; an elaborate eight-bed property that came with private executive chefs and obligatory swimming pool.
And just to make sure the celebrity crew were not roughing it, a spa and private theatre, luxury bar and party rooms were on hand to help usher away the toils of daily life.
The trip was the Kardashian’s first major trip abroad since Kim was infamously robbed in Paris.
Time for an extravagant trip to Dubai and a chance to stay the famous Atlantis, The Palm hotel.
Kim reportedly forked out £22,000-a-night to stay at the luxury resorts, where bars of soap are incredibly coated in gold.
Royalty has stayed at the hotel and no doubt Kim and her entourage would have felt right at home been waited on hand and foot.
The clan travelled to Iceland to lap up the famous Blue Lagoon as part of Kourtney’s 37th birthday celebrations.
For good measure the Kardashians took a helicopter tour over the country’s icon glaciers and pampered themselves in the natural spas.
The family splashed out an enormous £150,000 a week on a Thailand sanctuary, staying in a dream villa.
The hotel has stunning views of the Andaman Sea with private butlers, chefs and drivers on tap for all lucky guests.
Kim famously lost one of her £55,000 diamond earrings during her trip to Bora Bora.
She was staying at the opulent Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort, where you can rent presidential suites for £4,000 a night.
Having been thrown into the sea, Kim had a meltdown when she discovered the earring was missing.
But her sister Kendall later found the earring as Kourtney joked: “Kim, there’s people that are dying [in the world].”
Kim celebrated her 29th birthday with an elaborate bash in Las Vegas.
She and her crew stayed in the £18,000-a-night Venetian Chairman’s Suite, with a private karaoke booth to carry on the party into the early hours.
After a heavy night of partying Kim’s brother Rob and fellow reality star Scott Disick got badly drunk and proceeded to smash up the suite.
