Kim Kardashian’s Medical Records Hacked, Hospital Employees Fired!
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, better known recently as the hospital where Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby daughter North West was born on June 15, has reportedly just fired employees for hacking into several people's medical records—including Kim’s!
According to a report in the LA Times, Cedars-Sinai officials released a statement that 14 patient records were "inappropriately accessed" between the dates of June 18 and June 24, and six people have apparently been fired because of the incident. “Four were employees of community physicians who have medical staff privileges at the hospital, one was a medical assistant employed by Cedars-Sinai, and one was an unpaid student research assistant,” writes the paper.
Evidently a hospital spokeswoman didn’t say who exactly was affected by the security breach, but that all the victims had been notified that their records had been breached.
So shady! It seems pretty obvious that Kim was a target, given the timing and her massive celebrity, but TMZ is confirming that Kim was indeed one of the victims, as she was among those contacted by the hospital.
“Our sources say the family suspected that information was leaking from the hospital after various media reports surfaced with certain information about the birth of her daughter North that she hadn't told anyone,” the site reports, adding that they hear Kim is happy action was taken.
We’ll say! We get the impulse to be in the know, but come on people, these are medical records! Kim has to deal with enough prying on a daily basis, let’s leave her at least a few things she doesn’t have to worry about.
