Now, the New York Post reports he may be in Italy, where a friend, Carol Ann Ransaw, lives.
Ransaw, a makeup artist who used to live in Manhattan, had been looking for Kim after he failed to call her over the holidays. But a cagey Ransaw told the Post on Wednesday, “everything’s fine. He’s fine.”
“He’s a really great person, that’s all I can say,” she added.
