Kim Kardashian Denies Asking For Paintings From Andy Warhol's Cousin

She thinks it's a scam...
TMZ reports that Monica Warhol, who says she's Andy Warhol's cousin, claims Kanye West hired her to paint Kim Kardashian. However, Kardashian says she has no idea who Warhol is.
Warhol, a Tucson artist with a similar style to Andy's, said that West's people contacted her two weeks ago and gave her a photo of Kardashian in order to create a screen painting. She has made nine different Kardashian paintings and says her art usually sells for $20,000 to $70,000 each.
Kardashian claims she's never heard of the woman and thinks it's either a scam or a way to get publicity. Warhol said the reason she may have been turned down is that the painting was meant to be a surprise gift. Now that the surprise is ruined, Kardashian and West don't want it. She plans to put the artwork up for sale for anyone if this deal doesn't go through.
