Kim Kardashian’s Family Returns to Social Media While Inside Sources Share Details About Her Life Post-Robbery
Page Six reports that Kim has a strong ally in her case while the jewel thefts that held her at gunpoint are still at large. Sources close to the investigation say that French President François Hollande is “personally involved in the investigation” and has pledged to provide “additional security on [Kardashian’s] behalf next time she is in France.” The same report alleges that Kim is on the hunt for a body double to “help confuse would-be assailants” and that Kim’s children, North and Saint, are getting their own security teams.
“The kids being kidnapped is Kim’s biggest fear,” a source tells Page Six. “She previously didn’t want to shell out for armed security, but now she realizes the family needs 24-hour protection.”
She has also put her public appearances on hold for the time being.
A source close to the reality star tells E! News that she is “stunned” that people would question whether the robbery was real or if it was just a publicity stunt. “It’s crazy to her that people, even for a second, think she is fabricating this story,” the source says. “She feels like no one understands her and what she been through.”
In response to additional criticism that the robbery was brought on by Kim’s excessive displays of wealth, TMZ reports that Kim will refrain from showing off her jewels on social media from now on and will even be less ostentatious with the promotion of her fashion line. At the same time, E! News reports that Kim’s husband, Kanye West, plans to gift her with new jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz and that her replacement diamond ring might even be bigger than the first.
“Her jewelry is part of her and she is not blaming herself for wearing the diamonds she’s been given,” the source tells E!. “She knows that her image is what makes Kim, Kim. She just has to be very careful going forward. She will be getting 24/7 security when she travels going forward.”
Meanwhile, Kim’s bodyguard Pascal Duvier, who was absent during the heist, deleted every mention of her from his social media accounts, including photos and all references to him working for her. Sources tell TMZ that this is a preventative measure to keep Kim’s whereabouts private from those who wish to do her harm. The tabloid also reports that Kim and West “don’t blame Pascal for Kim’s robbery” given that Duvier was protecting Kendall Jenner and Kourtney that evening.
Kendall and Kourtney returned to social media for the first time since the incident on Wednesday and Thursday with positive posts. First, Kourtney shared a verse from the bible about keeping faith alive during tough times on Twitter.
Then, Kendall shared a happy photo of her wearing a giant red sweater on Instagram with the caption, “Low key look.”
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton even addressed Kim’s robbery in an interview with Extra. “I felt really bad for her,” said Clinton before praising West’s impulse decision to leave the Meadows Festival stage mid-performance to be by his wife’s side. “He was in the middle of the concert and he ran offstage, bless his heart. I’m just glad nobody was hurt.”
