It takes a brave guy to ask out Kanye West's girl!
On Thursday, Kim Kardashian headed down south for the sake of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness when she joined Sgt. Martin Gardner at the HQ Battery 10th Marine Birthday Ball.
The 32-year-old follows in the footsteps of Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis and Kristin Cavallari as she ventured down to Greenvile, N.C. to join Gardner at the annual shindig. He was apparently on the event's planning committee and asked her to attend months ago.
She showed up looking sexy in an all-red Roland Mouret gown, and says she had a great time. "Just left the Marine Corps Ball. Thanks to all of the marines I had the opportunity to meet tonight! Thank you for all that you do!" she tweeted.
A source tells Us Weekly that Kardashian "changed her schedule so she could be there," while another source claims "she's honored that she was invited." Prior to attending the Ball, Kardashian was in Florida filming Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.
