US reality TV star Kim Kardashian has confirmed she will be returning to the Middle East, this time stopping off in Kuwait.

Kardashian, who spent several days in the UAE last year to launch the US-brand Millions of Milkshakes in Dubai Mall, said she will be in the Gulf state in October. It is not yet known if she will stop over in the UAE.

“I'm going to Kuwait in October! Can’t wait!” she wrote on Twitter.

The 31-year old reality star, who shot to fame along with her family in the reality TV show, ‘Keeping up With The Kardashians’, has previously said she would be interested in pursuing business opportunities in the Gulf.

In an interview with Arabian Business in November she said she wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to open a Kardashian hotel or night club in Dubai if the opportunity was right.

“I’m just excited to meet new people and see what other business opportunities are out there other than what I’ve already have got on,” she said.

“Absolutely [I would look at real estate], if it made sense and there was something there.”

Kardashian’s mother and manager, Kris Jenner, said the family may also look to open a second branch of retail outlet Kardashian Khaos in the region.

“I would love the opportunity to help design a hotel and get into that business or maybe open a club, like a Kardashian experience, I think it would be really amazing,” Jenner said.

“We’re opening up a store in Vegas called Kardashian Khaos and I would love to bring that to Dubai, it would be fun. We consider it a great opportunity to see what’s going on.”

Kardashian was last year named Hollywood’s top-earning reality star, earning an estimated $6m from branding deals for products such as skincare, swimwear and weight loss supplements.
