KIM KARDASHIAN STAFFER MIXES IT UP WITH AIRPORT COP
Kim Kardashian's travel woes continue.
First "sentimental" items were allegedly stolen from her luggage on a flight from the U.K. to the U.S. -- then, upon returning home, one of her staffers got into a shouting match with a police officer outside Los Angeles International Airport. TMZ reports the staffer blasted the officer, saying he was more concerned with getting an autograph than protecting Kim from a mob of fans and paparazzi.
The officer blasted back: "I don't appreciate you coming here and telling us we're here for autographs. I don't do that. We're not here to do any service for [Kardashian]. We're here for the needs of the international terminal."
According to the gossip blog, the staffer eventually stormed off.
