Dubai, December 6 (ANI): Kim Kardashian, who was on a visit to the Gulf to launch amilkshake franchise, has left for her hometown following an unprecedented three-day visit to Kuwait and Bahrain.

The 32-year-old reality TV star brought out screaming fans, angry Muslim hardliners and police throwing stun grenades on Saturday when she visited Bahrain, witnesses said.

"It is my first visit to the country and I heard it was beautiful, but what I saw was beyond that,"Gulf News quoted her as telling her fans in Bahrain.

"I was on the phone with my sisters and family telling them how beautiful it is. The country has lovely beaches and desert," she said.

The reality star heaped praise on Bahrain and urged fellow US citizens to visit the country.

"People from the States should come here because the people and the country are so amazing and welcoming that I am planning to be back here during my vacation," she said.

Her pledge to learn more about the Middle East following her controversial comments over Palestine and Israel included a visit to the desert to see camels.

In one of her numerous tweets during the trip, she said that she had a fun day out at the desert and posted pictures standing at some distance from camels and a photo of a glass of camel milk.

Her visit to both Kuwait and Bahrain has been greeted as "a once in a lifetime opportunity by a role model for successful women" by cheering fans and as "a move to spread vice by a woman with a bad reputation" by angry protestors.

Thousands of fans, who had paid up to 500 Bahrain i dinars (1,360 dollars) a ticket, broke into hysterical screams as the socialite launched the 'Millions of Milkshakes' franchise inside the mall. (ANI)
