Kim Kardashian announced she’s ‘re-evaluating’ her future with Balenciaga, but it appears she’s made up her mind … declining an offer from the brand, and ditching outfits she was set to wear at upcoming events.

Sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell us the design house presented Kim an offer to do a 2023 Balenciaga campaign before the controversial child BDSM ads went live. According to our sources, Kim rejected the offer after the ads were made public. This was before any statement was issued on the matter.

We also know that Kim had planned to wear Balenciaga clothes at events she attends in the coming months. However, our sources claim that she has contacted other designers to find new options.

Kim was criticized for not immediately denouncing Balenciaga’s campaign or announcing that she was leaving the brand. However, our sources claim she isn’t even in a contract with Balenciaga and isn’t making any money from the company.

As we reported, Balenciaga’s campaign using children models holding BDSM teddy bears in a photo shoot — along with prop legal docs referencing child porn — pissed off the public.

Kim responded to the controversy Sunday with a statement that said, in part, “As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images. Safety of children must be respected and any attempts to normalize child abuse should be rejected. “

As for my future with Balenciaga, I am currently re-evaluating my relationship with the brand, basing it off their willingness to accept accountability for something that should have never happened to begin with — & the actions I am expecting to see them take to protect children.

She said that she is currently reevaluating her relationship with Balenciaga. This is based on their willingness to take responsibility for something that should never have happened — and the actions she expects to see them take in order to protect children. “

Clearly, Balenciaga got Kim’s message and announced Monday … “We want to ensure that new controls mark a pivot and will prevent this from happening again. We are working with child protection organizations to ensure that child abuse and exploitation are prevented. “

Our sources claim that Kim has no plans to work with the brand in future.
