"They wouldn't let me out of customs line," People magazine quoted her as telling about the ordeal after flying from Botswana to Johannesburg, South Africa. As part of her tour around Africa for the Russell Simmons Diamond Empowerment Fund, Kardashian was travelling with her sister Khloe and Bush from Botswana when the unexpected happened.
"I left my passport on the plane!" she said. "They claimed they looked for it but I had a feeling they didn't. They called the embassy and said I would have had to sleep at the hotel airport," she says.
However, Bush somehow managed to persuade customs officials to allow him to search for the passport. "Reggie begged to go check for the passport himself ... and he found it! He saved the day!" Kardashian said.
The happy trio was then able to resume their charity trip. "We want to educate people how the diamond industry has helped so much in contrast to what people believe," Kardashian said.
