Kim Kardashian West's assistant releases statement on Kim's app

2016-10-18 08:39

New York — Kim Kardashian West is "taking some much needed time off" from sharing on her phone app after she was held up at gunpoint in Paris, according to a handwritten note posted in the app on Monday by an assistant.

"But not to worry," wrote "Steph Shep," the nickname for Kim assistant Stephanie Sheppard. "We've called upon Kims closest friends, fam & yours truly to serve up some exclusives."

Sheppard promised: "Stay tuned for new posts and app takeovers!!"

Kim has maintained silence on all her social media streams since the 3 October jewellery heist, when she was bound and left in a bathtub by suspects who remain at large. Police estimate more than $10m in jewels were stolen.

The paid app is a rare social media spot where Kim charges money for access. It had been left untouched since the robbery.

The heist, sister Khloe Kardashian said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show about a week after the hold up, was a "wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments" for all in the reality TV family.

Usually heavy social media sharers, the famous sisters, mom, brother and a universe of friends have scaled way back.
