Kim Kardashian has damaged her silence on the current allegations that her private photographer, Marcus Hyde, supplied a mannequin a free photoshoot in change for nude photos.
“I have been reading all of the messages and stories from women regarding inappropriate and inexcusable behavior of a photographer that I have worked with in the past,” Kim wrote on her Instagram story on Tuesday. “My very own experiences have at all times been skilled, and I am deeply shocked, saddened and upset to be taught that different ladies have had very completely different experiences.
“I stand in full support of every woman’s right to not be harassed, asked or pressured to do anything they are not comfortable with,” she continued. “We cannot allow this type of behavior to go unnoticed and I applaud those who speak out.”
On Monday, Los Angeles-based mannequin Sunnaya accused Hyde of attempting to bribe her into sending him nude photos in change for a free photoshoot. If she didn’t ship the nudes, he would’ve charged her $2,000, she claimed. Sunnaya shared screenshots of a dialog allegedly between her and Hyde that in the end ended with him allegedly telling her to “find someone else. I’ll keep shooting celebs.”
Ariana Grande, who often collaborated with Hyde, slammed him over the accusations, as did Bella Thorne, drag queen Aquaria and Michelle Visage.
The famed shutterbug survived a near-fatal automotive crash final yr. Throughout his restoration, Kardashian and husband Kanye West donated $25,000 to alleviate his medical prices, and in April he attended West’s Sunday Service efficiency at Coachella.
