As you may already know, Joshua’s brother is Jared Kushner, aka husband to Ivanka Trump and senior advisor to POTUS, making Karlie and Ivanka sisters-in-law.
In the newest episode of Diane von Fürstenberg’s podcast InCharge with DVF, Kloss opened up about her relationship with her husband and mentioned the “complications” that come from his relationship with Jared and the Trumps.
“I really followed my heart on choosing to be with the person that I love, despite any complications that came with it,” Karlie said. “I knew for me, it was worth it to fight for that.”
“I think that in my career too, you know, being true to my heart or being true to myself, when I know that something is not aligned with who I am, and the message I want to send to the world, or the kind of person that I want to be maybe that comes back to character,” the supermodel continued.
“But like, my heart often is telling me exactly what I need to hear. And I didn’t always listen to it.”
Even though she did not elaborate on what “complications” she referred to, Karlie said in 2018 that she and Josh “share a lot of the same liberal values that guide [their] lives and the things [they] stand for.”
This is the first time Karlie has touched on this subject since January. A Project Runway contestant mentioned her in-laws when responding to judge Brandon Maxwell’s critique of an outfit that was designed for her.
