American reality television star Kim Kardashian and her rapper husband Kanye West met for a meal with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat on Monday evening. Kikar Shabbat, an ultra-Orthodox news website, removed Kardashian from the photograph taken of the group using the restaurant bill.

In a quick visit to Jerusalem, the famous couple had their toddler daughter, North West, baptized at a 12th century Armenian church in the old walled city.
