Trans inmate Barbie Kardashian to be removed from women's Limerick Prison after making violent threats

Transgender criminal Barbie Kardashian, who was sentenced to four and a half years in prison last month and sent to a women’s facility, could be moved to a separate unit over fears that the 21-year-old could follow through with threats previously made. 

According to the Irish Mirror, Kardashian will be moved from Limerick Prison, where Kardashian is currently held, to a different location because staff members do not feel safe with Kardashian being held there.

A source told the outlet that Kardashian has been deemed too dangerous to mix with the women housed at Limerick Prison, and poses a serious threat to both inmates and staff.

"Meetings are set to take place this month to discuss a better location for Kardashian," the source told the Irish Mirror. "She is deemed very dangerous and requires a number of prison staff to open her cell and accompany her anywhere she goes."

Kardashian was sentenced to four and a half years in prison in March for threatening to torture, rape, and murder Kardashian’s own mother.

Kardashian had 15 previous convictions including threats to kill, sexual assault, assault causing harm, assault, and causing criminal damage to property.

During sentencing, Judge Tom O’Donnell said that the psychiatric reports on Kardashian made "chilling and disturbing" comments..

During a meeting with a social care manager, Kardashian reportedly said, "If I got into [my mother’s] house I would... put the knife into her body and into her genitalia.

“The thing is, I would want to prolong my mum’s suffering for as long as possible. I would stab her, but not in her heart or neck, I’d want to put her through lots of torture...”

Kardashian is currently being housed in a wing of Limerick Prison shared with one transgender prisoner and two female convicts that killed children, none of whom are allowed to mix.

The source told the Irish Mirror, There is a fear that she will follow through on some of the threats she has made in the past. Currently there is no location for transgender inmates to be housed."

"Kardashian is not allowed to mix at all and her current location in Limerick Prison is not deemed suitable," the source added. "[The move] will have to be somewhere she is on her own and doesn’t pose a serious threat to others including staff."

During a court hearing in Limerick Circuit Criminal Court, gardai said they continue to have "grave concerns" that Kardashian poses a threat "to the wider public."

The court also learned that Kardashian was previously known as Gabrielle Alejandro Gentile, later changing to the name Barbie Kardashian by deed poll.

Kardashian was granted a gender recognition certificate in 2020 by the Department of Social Protection, legally changing Kardashian’s gender.

In Ireland, prisoners must be housed according to what jail is specified by the court.

An Irish Prison Service spokesperson told the Irish Mirror, "All prisoners committed are accommodated in accordance with their legal gender.

"The Irish Prison Service is currently drafting a policy for the management of transgender prisoners, to take account of evolving trends in relation to best practice in other jurisdictions in order to inform the final policy, which remains under careful consideration before finalization."
