Kim Kardashian is coming to Kendall Jenner‘s defense over an incident involving the supermodel’s dog.
Over the weekend, TMZ reported that cops were called on the 22-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star after her Doberman Pinscher allegedly bit a little girl. The outlet stated that Kendall was at Beverly Glen Deli in Los Angeles on Sunday with boyfriend Ben Simmons when the incident occurred, but there were no obvious puncture wounds so the staff at the deli administered ice. An eyewitness also tells E! News that the dog didn’t actually bite the girl, he just scared her, causing her to cry. The eyewitness shares that the dog made a growling sound as the girl approached and lunged toward her, but didn’t actually bite her.
The Los Angeles Police Department has also confirmed to E! News that no police officers responded to this call and that they are not investigating this incident because a crime did not occur. If anything were to happen now it would be a civil matter and not criminal.
According to a source, Ben and Kendall have previously been to Beverly Glen Deli a “couple of times” in the past. “Ben and Kendall seem very normal and low-key,” the insider tells E! News, adding that they “always treat the staff very politely.”
The source also shares that the couple was sitting outside when the incident with the dog occurred, but “the girl was not bitten and had no physical markings that would indicate the dog made any contact with her.”
When the little girl’s mom called to report the incident to police, she was overheard on the phone telling 911 that “Kendall Jenner’s dog bit my daughter,” according to the insider.
Eyewitnesses describe the mother as “somewhat hysterical,” and even though Kendall stuck around for a period of time, others at the restaurant told her that “she better get out of there, and she and Ben listened and got the dog and left.”
As reports about the incident started surfacing, one social media user wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “Add this to the growing list of reasons why @KendallJenner is a disturbingly despicable, entitled, unsympathetic, sadistic, uncharitable and self-absorbed human being who doesn’t deserve to be idolized. (Yes, I went there.).”
After seeing the tweet on Monday, Kim decided to clap back in defense of her sister. “Do u know Kendall? She’s the complete opposite &is the most generous,compassionate person I know!” Kim replied to the Twitter user. “Her being standoffish is anxiety that paralyzes her which u take as rude! Only a despicable, entitled,unsympathetic,sadistic, uncharitable @self-absorbed human would write this tweet.”
Minutes later, Kendall also replied to the social media user, “oof i’m sorry you feel that way. hope to meet you one day to show you the real me, maybe i’ll tell you a little bit about the story too. God bless.”
