Angry, Underaged Kennedy Denied at 21+ Club, Throws Rich Kid Temper Tantrum


Being the progeny of rich and famous people is one of the best jobs on earth. You have the time, freedom and material resources to indulge all your whims — the wacky, shitty philosophy of Jaden Smith, or shoe collecting and modeling pursuits in the case of Chai Yan Leung, for example.

For Kyra Kennedy, the 19-year-old daughter of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., it’s the ability to party at 21+ nightclubs, and more importantly, the hubris to say “Google me” when not admitted entry to said 21+ nightclubs. Uttering that phrase in public requires a lot of hubris, an amount so enormous that even Kanye Kardashian would be squeamishly impressed. Kennedy-level fame and fortune, though, apparently affords such hubris.

According to Page Six, the young Kennedy made a “drunken stink” when turned away at club Lava at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, N.Y. last Thursday while trying to pass herself off as her 26-year-old half-sister Kick Kennedy (weird names are one of the few drawbacks to being children of the famous). A witness told the gossip rag:

“A security guard took Kick’s passport from Kyra and asked her to recite her birth date, and she didn’t know it. He then caught her trying to look up Kick’s birthday on Wikipedia on her phone. The security guard then refused to return the passport, and Kyra started shouting all this stuff, including, ‘I am a Kennedy, Google me. If you don’t let me in, the governor will be calling.’”

Presumably, the guard Googled her and told her she was no North West, so she then reportedly went to the casino’s front desk and “screamed at the staff, saying she was going to sue if they didn’t give her the passport back.”

Kennedy’s evening tantrum occurred at the front-end of a weekend trip to Syracuse University with her fellow children-of-rich-people friends, Gaia Matisse (great-great-granddaughter of Henri Matisse), Julia Moshy (the daughter of … someone who didn’t believe in spankings) and Andrew Warren (check out NextShark’s interview with Warren here — you can do no wrong in our eyes, Andy!).

Like all privileged children, the terrible night out and bad publicity (ironically, she’s much more Google-able now) didn’t dampen Kennedy’s shame-free party weekend:
