MIAMI, Fla. -- On the eve of launching a Miami branch of their boutique, Dash, the Kardashian sisters’ store has been vandalized, a Miami Beach Police Department spokesperson told Access Hollywood.
According to the MBPD’s Deborah Doty, the shop, which will sell designer labels, was not burglarized. However, the boutique was tagged with “a little graffiti.”
Doty said the sisters, who are gearing up to film a new reality show for E! – “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami” — “should have let us know they moved into the neighborhood.”
According to Kourtney Kardashian, the vandalism “was gang-related and there were carvings in the glass,” she wrote on her official blog.
“All in all, the damage is pretty bad, but they’re painting over it now,” she continued. “Luckily nothing was taken from the store, but as a precaution we called and filed a police report and the police came to the store.”
Kourtney claims no one was aware the store was Kardashian related and reports that the graffiti had to do with their name are totally false.
“Of course the paparazzi were all over this, and assumed our new Dash store had been the intentional target,” she blogged. “We want to make it clear that no one was targeting the store or Kim, Khloe and myself, specifically. The location of the store has remained a secret since we started filming, so there’s no way whoever graffiti’d the store front knew it was Dash. They were just defacing buildings in the area.”
The Kardashian sisters already own an outlet of their luxury-line boutique in Calabasas, Calif.
