Kim Kardashian wanted to cut Cuban holiday short because of poor internet

8 May 2016 / 5 months 2 weeks ago

Kim Kardashian West was reportedly "frustrated" by the lack of internet access in Cuba. 

The 35-year-old TV personality - who jetted off to the Caribbean island earlier this week with husband Kanye West, 38, and sisters Kourtney, 37, and Khloé Kardashian, 31, to film season 13 of their hit E! programme 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' - was reportedly left bitterly disappointed she couldn't freely log in to Wi-Fi during the trip, which was an "issue" that made her want to return home.

Speaking to the New York Post online about Kim's bug bear on set of the forthcoming series, a source said: "They love the culture, but they don't like the technology. 

"They've had an issue every two seconds about not having internet. They complained they couldn't get on Snapchat. They're frustrated and they can't wait to leave. They weren't culturally prepared for Cuba." 

And the gang reportedly had further issues with shooting scenes in the Havana city with local residents refusing to sign release forms to permit filming. 

A source explained: "We're told their show's had issues getting locals to sign release forms, because nobody knows who they are.

"They don't have reality TV in Cuba -- the Kardashians aren't a big deal. They are like, 'Who are you, why are you filming?'"

However, Kim's representative defended the brunette beauty - who has daughter North, two, and five-month-old son Saint with rapper husband - and claimed the only issues were with the production team rather than the signalling dilemma. 

They said: "If there are any issues, they are production issues. The ladies don't have any issues and are having a great time. They knew there wouldn't be internet service before they came."
