Kim Kardashian

Upset at Cosmo

for Turkish Cover

4/11/2011 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources close to Kim Kardashian tell TMZ ... Kim is upset that a picture from one of her photo shoots ended up on the cover of Turkish Cosmopolitan -- the country that committed genocide on the Armenian people.

Kim Kardashian Cosmo Cover Upset
We're told Kim -- an Armenian-American who has been vocal about the genocide -- did an international photo shoot that went to various magazines published by Cosmo, but she didn't know it would end up on the Turkish version of the mag.

Sources say Cosmo let Kim's people know which international outlets of the magazine would use her picture -- but we're told Cosmo never mentioned Turkey to Kim or her reps.  Our sources say Kim would never have approved the use of her pic in the Turkish version.

Rubbing salt in the wound ...  April 24 is the day Armenians commemorate the genocide -- just weeks after her pic was splashed on the cover of Turkish Cosmo.

We contacted Cosmo for a statement ... and here's what they told us -- “Kim Kardashian is one of our favorite cover girls.  We were thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph her for the Cosmopolitan editions worldwide.”

Why did she not stipulate that her picture not be used for any Turkish publications or media if that was important to her?

It seems like she's always upset about something "leaking out" or being shown in a way she didn't want. I'm not buying her naivete anymore.

Not a fan but if this is true it's a complete slap in the face. I've been stationed in Turkey and the level of ignorance there towards Armenians is brutal.
