"I'd Rather Die In Poverty Than Be A Kardashian"

Pink, aged 13, said even though she was very excited at the news of becoming the multi-millionaire’s adopted daughter, she also insisted she really just wanted to go to school and help her fellow orphans she's lived with.

A teenager from a Thai orphanage has rejected an offer to become Kim Kardashian's adopted child and says she'd rather stay in abject poverty in Thailand than go live a life of riches and glamor overseas.

Pink, aged 13, said even though she was very excited at the news of becoming the multi-millionaire’s adopted daughter, she also insisted she really just wanted to go to school and help her fellow orphans she's lived with.

“Everyone wants to have a different or a better life, I suppose. But when I thought about it I realised it wouldn't be good for me, because I would have to leave so much behind. I wasn't ready for that.” Pink said after being told the reality TV star wanted to adopt her.

Kim bonded with the teenage girl during her family visit in the country back in April. We earlier reported that the reality star admitted she would love to adopt Pink after visiting her ramshackle Children's home in Phang Nga province, a region where above 4,000 people died in the 2004 Tsunami.

After the visit, Kim declared on camera: 'When you meet someone that you really connect to like this, you can't help but think like how you could change their life. And I think that looking into adoption would be amazing.... I literally cannot stop thinking about her. I told (husband) Kanye, I was like, honestly, this girl is so sweet and so cute, like, I would honestly adopt her.'

Reports claim Kim dropped the idea after her momager Kris Jenner told her to STOP treating adoption like a shopping trip.

According to MailOnline, the Kardashians had not been in contact with the home since the visit, he said, although the owner of the resort in nearby Phuket that arranged the visit was in regular contact as a supporter of the foundation.

So why is this story coming out after Kim's nude Paper cover just got released?
