Kim Kardashian was never afraid to court the paparazzi, posing for photos and even reportedly tipping them off to her whereabouts— but the pregnant reality star is now singing a much different tune.
Kim took to her Twitter account today to voice her disgust for the photographers who she claims have been stalking her— the same ones who helped her become one of the world’s most recognizable public figures.
“I wouldn't let the paps get a pic of me today & they threatened my life & said if I continue to block shots then they will make my world dangerous to live in! How dare they threaten my life & my unborn child!” the expecting star wrote.
She continued: “This has gotten way out of control! Yesterday 4 cars boxed me in. One in front, behind, & one on each side just to have me drive at their speed so they can snap through the window. Its really so scary what they are legally allowed to get away with!”

Kim, who has famously gained over 60 pounds during the course of her pregnancy, then took note of the fact that recent paparazzi shots of her haven’t been to her liking.
“For years I've always been so gracious. Every shot they take now just isn't flattering & crazy stories get made up, so why would I willingly just let them stalk me & smile for them?” she wrote. “Let me enjoy this last month of pregnancy please without threats & being scared to leave my home due to what dangerous thing they just threatened to do to me.”
But things weren’t always this way. Nick Lachey, who briefly dated Kim before the release of her famous sex tape with Ray J in 2007, recently alluded to the fact that Kim would tip off the media regarding their whereabouts.

“Let’s just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside,” he said of their date that ended up plastered all over the tabloids the following day.
So is Kim now biting the hand that fed her or is she genuinely concerned for her wellbeing?
“What will it take for there to be laws put in place to prevent this behavior? I get I live a public life. I live my life on a reality show for the world to see. I love my life, but when the cameras stop, that doesn't mean I don't want a break too,” Kim continued. “I'm 32 yrs old now, about to be a mom. I'm not 25 clubbing around LA anymore. There's no excuse for threats & stalking!”
