Keeping Up With Kim Kardashian Will be Much More Difficult Following Robbery

kim-kardashian-e1475504350655After being tied up, gagged, and robbed at gunpoint in Paris over the weekend, Kim Kardashian is going to be a lot less Kim Kardashian-like. A source told People, “Everything will change.”

Starting now, she will have “a much heavier security team… There will be a focus on security personnel who aren’t in traditional clothing. There will be a lot more undercover security.”

The reality star’s famous family will follow suit. The whole Kardashian-Jenner krew “is cutting down on all public appearances for the time being.”

They’re also going to change the way they post on social media, and how and where they will travel. “This scared everyone,” the source said. “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.”

It’s an interesting situation, given that “putting themselves out there” is pretty much how they’ve made their careers. While they have their stores, cosmetic lines, and other products and projects, a huge part of Kim Kardashian’s job is simply being an extremely public-facing Kim Kardashian.

The choice is, however, understandable. The entire situation is terrifying. According to a source, “She’s barely slept. She’s had no anxiety medication or alcoholic drinks as she doesn’t do any of that stuff… She’s just got comfort from being around her kids and friends.”
