Kim Kardashian Reacts to Robbery: What Will Change?
Kim Kardashian is yet to make a public statement in the wake of Monday morning’s horrific robbery in Paris.
But multiple insiders have gone on record as saying the reality star plans to make a number of life changes to ensure nothing like this ever happens again.
And, really, can you blame her?
Kardashian touched down in New York City yesterday afternoon, just hours after multiple assailants broke into her apartment in France and dragged her out of bed.
They tied her hands together and held a gun to her head while stealing upwards of $ 11 million worth of jewelry.
According to various sources, Kardashian was screaming and begging for her life throughout the approximately six-minute ordeal.
We cannot imagine what she must have been going through.
She told the robbers that she had two little kids at home and that they could take whatever they wanted to; allegedly, the men kept asking about the $ 4 million ring that Kanye West had given to her.
And while no one in their right mind can possibly blame Kardashian for what happened, insiders say that Kim realizes she has to now make a few life changes.
(We said their right mind, Karl Lagerfeld; see the video below.)
“This scared everyone,” a souece tells People Magazine, adding of Kim, Kanye and company:
“They’re not taking chances …. It was a really scary situation for the entire family and it’s just not worth it to put themselves out there unnecessarily right now.”
This means the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan “is cutting down on all public appearances for the time,” the publication reports.
You can tell they really are taking it seriously, considering that not a single loved one has posted a reference to the incident on social media.
This was a life-or-death situation, not a ploy for ratings or attention.
What specific steps will Kardashian be taking going forward?
“[She will have] a much heavier security team,” says the source. “There will be a focus on security personnel who aren’t in traditional clothing. There will be a lot more undercover security.”
Kim and Kanye traveled throughout the Big Apple on Monday as if they were the President and First Lady; they were flanked by numerous cars as a minimum of 10 bodyguards.
Aside from making fewer public appearances, Kim will likely post less frequently on social media.
She will especially post less frequently about items related to her wealth.
No, of course she did not deserve to be robbed, bound, gagged and threatened just because she flaunts her riches online.
But it’s just common sense for anyone in her situation to err on the side of caution and secrecy, as much as possible at least.
“When something like this happens everything changes,” says the People article. “Everything will change. It changes the whole family – how and where they travel…
“[Kim] will reassess traveling for work and feeling safe.”
It remains unclear just who robbed Kardashian.
TMZ confirms that there is no surveillance footage available, from either inside or outside Kim’s hotel in Paris.
Because Kardashian had sent her bodyguard away for the night, some are wondering whether this was an inside job, perpetrated by someone who would have known Kim would be unprotected.
TMZ has also learned that only one cell phone was stolen from Kim’s apartment, not two as was widely reported initially.
Moreover, phone in question did not have “compromising information” and it was remotely wiped.
In other words: no, there will not be another Kim Kardashian sex tape hitting the market as a result of this incident.
