In a scene far from the Paris Bal des débutantes, where a Dior-clad Kyra made her formal society debut in December 2013, the 19-year-old made a drunken stink at club Lava at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY, last Thursday when security didn’t accept her ID.
Witnesses said Kyra appeared inebriated when she arrived at the club and was trying to enter an over-21 area using a passport belonging to her 26-year-old half-sister Kick Kennedy.
One witness said, “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.’”
The witness said Kyra appeared drunk as she left the club after being turned away: “She went to the hotel front desk and then screamed at the staff, saying she was going to sue if they didn’t give her the passport back.”
Kyra’s ill-fated night out happened at the start of a weekend trip to Syracuse University to party with her young socialite friends, including Gaia Matisse, Andrew Warren and Julia Moshy. Warren, who is over 21 and had booked a table at Lava, was seen pleading with managers to return the passport.
Kyra — daughter of the late Mary Richardson Kennedy and RFK Jr., and a great-niece to President John F. Kennedy — went back to her room at Turning Stone. She got the passport back the following morning after club staff left it at the front desk.
While Kyra declined to comment, a source close to her said she did try to use her older sister’s ID at the club. But the source insisted that Kyra didn’t make a scene and instead went directly upstairs to bed.
