When Kim Kardashian West touches down in Tel Aviv next month, she won't be bringing any of her famous family members.

Despite reports in Hebrew media over the past week, a representative for Kardashian West told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that the supermodel will be arriving alone - without her husband, children or sisters.

Reports to the contrary were first aired earlier this week by the Keshet 12 show Erev Tov with Guy Pines. Pines also said that Kardashian West will be filming for her reality TV show while in town, the PR representative said that is also not true.

Kardashian West is arriving in Israel on March 19, as part of her new campaign and partnership with Israeli glasses brand Carolina Lemke. The company, which is partly owned by Bar Refaeli, signed Kardashian West to a two-year advertising deal as well as an agreement for Kardashian-West to design her own sunglasses line with the brand. 

Kardashian West and her husband last visited in Israel in 2015, along with her husband, and as part of their trip they baptized their eldest, North, at the Armenian cathedral in Jerusalem.

On Wednesday, Carolina Lemke unveiled a sneak peek at the line of sunglasses Kardashian West has designed on its website. Seven of the 13 frames she created are available in a pre-sale for a week on the brand's Israeli website. The full collection is slated to go on sale in Israel when she arrives, and in the United States on April 3. All of the sunglasses revealed on Wednesday are priced at NIS 350 ($97).
