Kim Kardashian Upstages the Mona Lisa

9/15/2010 3:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chaos erupted at the famous Louvre Museum in France this morning -- with a team of security guards springing into action -- all because Kim Kardashian wanted to check out the Mona Lisa.

Kim Kardashian Sparks Security Alert.
Sources tell TMZ ... Kim and her mother Kris were swarmed by a massive group of paparazzi -- estimated to be 50 photogs strong -- as they entered the museum in Paris.

We're told a security team was assigned to the Kardashians -- and they were escorted directly to the Mona Lisa (pictured above).

But once they got to Da Vinci's masterpiece, people started going crazy -- taking photos, screaming their names ... and even asking the reality stars to pose with the painting.

Our sources say it got so hectic, that Kim and Kris had to leave the museum  ... right after they took one last photo for their Twitter page.

Ugh...the two old hags are over rated!!! They have enough make up on to make the Lady Bunny jealous and had enough plastic surgery that would make Mz. Rivers laugh.

I GUAR-AN-TEE they called the paps to take photos of them there. And the Frenchies just took pics of them because they saw paps surrounding them and figured they must be famous! (I lived in Paris...no one knows who they are.) The Kardashes ALWAYS call the paps to follow them around. Every single time it's shown on their show, of them out and about with paps surrounding them like a bunch of piranhas, they have called the paps. FACT. Seriously, do you ever see them without a full face of makeup, just doing hum drum things like REAL celebrities? No, they pose pose pose for the planted paps EVERY TIME. They're famous because they (and E!) have made them seem famous. That's why we can't figure out WHY besides a trashy sex tape and a big a s s. Simple as that.

I am not going to comment on the (non)relevance of these two individuals like many have on this thread, but I will say that it is absolutely infuriating that they were allowed to take photos in front of the Mono Lisa, one of the most famous pieces of artwork in our history. As several have pointed out, flash photography damages paintings, which is why it is not allowed. The fact that these two actually think they are important enough to bypass these regulations and then have the audacity to flaunt that level of conceitedness by posting their personal pictures of the Mona Lisa to Twitter (the epitome of self-obsession) is absolutely ridiculous, to say the least.

I'll also bet the security guards stopped them from taking pics as soon as they could...these chicks just got a few snaps in before they could get to them. Because, obvi, they think they're above any rules. A lot of people, for some reason, care about these people. Louvre security guards...not so much.

I know that Kim K. has been nipped, tucked, lifted and had (some of the)fat sucked out of her.
But there's no denying that she is a radiant beauty, and her hair looks outstanding.
But it sounds like the real story is that they got kicked out of the Louvre for staging this prohibited photo-op in front of La Giaconda.
