Kim Kardashian shares shots riding a bicycle but doesn’t address backlash over controversial Tahitian birthday vacation
Kim Kardashian posted a series of photos from her Tahitian vacation to social media Sunday, showing her riding bicycles with her friends La La Anthony and Fai Khadra.
In the shots, the reality star, 40, wore a black cap with black sunglasses, a brown top, a patterned black skirt and black sandals as she peddled on the bicycle, which had a basket upfront. She had her long brown blocks down on that idyllic day outside.
She was seen from multiple angles, and one of them walking across the bridge and in another, raising her arms up in victory on the beach in the tropical location alongside Anthony.

The mom-of-four – to girls North, seven, and Chicago, two, and sons Saint, four, and Psalm, one, with husband Kanye West, 43 – did not address the controversy stemming from the South Pacific vacation she had with family and friends for her birthday last month, posting a bicycle emoji as the caption.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star last week tweeted about the vacation, which took place on an island once owned by Hollywood icon Marlon Brando.
‘After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time,’ she wrote.
She continued: ‘We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is.’

A source told Page Six: ‘The group was limited to Kim’s closest family and friends. Everyone on the trip was repeatedly tested for COVID before they left in the middle of the night on a private Boeing 777.
‘Once on the island they had lavish dinner after dinner, spa treatments and hikes through the nature sanctuary. There was no expense spared. Everyone was banned from posting on social media by Kim to ensure her privacy.’
The trip came under social media scrutiny for tone-deafness amid many Americans struggling with health and economic problems as the coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage the country.
The famed family made headlines again Saturday as Kendall Jenner celebrated her 25th birthday with a Halloween party that came under fire for a lack of social distancing. Among the high-profile guests in attendance included sisters Kim and Kylie Jenner; Sofia Richie, The Weeknd, Justin and Hailey Bieber, Jaden Smith, Winnie Harlow and Saweetie.
