After recent reports of relationship problems with boyfriend Kanye West, pregnant Kim Kardashian was pulled over by police in Beverly Hills.
Kim Kardashian, 32, was driving her Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG down Wilshire Boulevard with close friend Brittney Gastineau on Saturday when she was pulled over by the Beverly Hills Police Department.
While the reasons for Kim Kardashian being stopped are as yet unknown, the expectant star looked distressed as she was spoken to by the officer.
Kim Kardashian is currently counting down the days until the birth of her first child with Kanye West.
However, the pair have sparked rumors that there could be an issue in their relationship as they haven’t been seen together since May 13.

Their time apart is despite the fact that Kim Kardashian travelled to Paris to see her baby daddy – who then headed to Milan.
The couple’s latest narrow miss came on Friday, when the pair were both in Los Angeles but not seen together.
Kim Kardashian tweeted fans from her hometown, sharing a picture of her in the backseat of a car.
The following day Kanye West was pictured looking decidedly glum as he left a Malibu restaurant without his girlfriend in tow.
The claims come after reports that Kim Kardashian had to beg Kanye West to attend her upcoming baby shower because it is being filmed for an E! special.
A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com Kim Kardashian had to beg Kanye West “to stop by the baby shower” which is taking place on June 2.
The baby shower will be filmed for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and he just doesn’t want to appear on the show at all, period.
“Kim nagged him until he agreed when she said it would look really bad if he didn’t show up. Kanye thinks it’s silly to even go to the baby shower since he will be the only man there. He will be there for less than ten minutes, tops. It was important to Kim that he go, so he agreed.”
Raffles Van Exel, Whitney Houston’s associate, will be questioned by Beverly Hills Police Department, according to new reports.
After Whitney Houston was found lifeless in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills hotel room on February 11, the Los Angeles County Coroner ruled her official cause of death was accidental drowning due to the effects of heart disease and cocaine use.
However, police are now keen to speak with Raffles Van Exel – a member of the star’s entourage – after he admitted to cleaning out the hotel room immediately after she passed away, allegedly removing vital evidence about Whitney Houston’s drug use from the premises.
A law enforcement source told RadarOnline.com: “Whitney’s family, including her sister-in-law Pat Houston had absolutely no idea that Whitney was using drugs again. The family has been extremely cooperative and they have been told that investigators want to speak to Raffles Van Exel about allegedly removing evidence from Whitney’s hotel room.
“The cops want to know who provided Whitney with the cocaine, but if someone tampered with the death scene, well, that could be against the law in California. Investigators have tried to make contact with Van Exel, but have been unable to do so.
“Since Van Exel is from Denmark, investigators assume that he may no longer be in the United States, and they very much want to talk to him.”

Raffles Van Exel reportedly told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf he cleaned out Whitney Houston’s hotel room after she died, removing clothes and belongings and sweeping the floor.
Rffles Van Exel said: “Someone had to do it. The room was empty.”
Whitney Houston’s family recently admitted they were “saddened” to learn cocaine had played a part in her sudden death.
Patricia Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager, said: “We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure.”
A plane believed to be carrying Whitney Houston’s body has landed in her home state of New Jersey, after leaving from LA.
In a news conference on Monday, Beverly Hills police spokesman Lt. Mark Rosen said fire department officials were told the singer was found unresponsive on Saturday morning.
“Ms. Houston was pulled from the tub by members of her staff and hotel security was promptly notified,” he said.
“First aid and CPR measures were performed in an attempt to revive her,” he said, adding that after unsuccessful attempts, Houston was pronounced dead at 15:55 local time.
The police spokesman played down reports that prescription drugs might have been involved in Whitney Houston’s death.
“Our intent at Beverly Hills Police Department is not to fuel the speculation or rumors that are circulating right now,” Lt. Mark Rosen said.
“We can’t comment on where those rumors have come from.”
However, the Los Angeles’s coroner’s office then said there were bottles of prescription medicine in the room, although it did not provide further details.
“There weren’t a lot of prescription bottles,” said Ed Winter, the coroner’s assistant chief.
“You probably have just as many prescription bottles in your medicine cabinet.”
Earlier, the coroner’s office confirmed Whitney Houston’s body was released to her family late on Monday morning.
