Kim Kardashian is currently in the middle of a scandal over a stolen ancient artifact... but she's blaming it all on Kanye West.

The Roman artifact was seized by the government but Kim says it was purchased in her name and the 'Noel Roberts Trust.'

A rep for Kim told NBC News, "this is the first that she has learned of its existence."

"We believe it may have been purchased using her name without authorization and because it was never received, she was unaware of the transaction. We encourage an investigation and hope that it gets returned to the rightful owners," the representative said.

According to a civil complaint for forfeiture filed in federal court in Los Angeles last week, Italian officials think the sculpture " was originally looted from Italy, and they want it returned.

Kanye has not delivered a statement on the allegedly looted statue. The original shipment contained antiques, furniture and decorations, and had 40 pieces in all valued at $745,882, the filing says.
