Kim Kardashian West cancels birthday bash on road to recovery

2016-10-13 14:00

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian West is slowly recovering following the night she was robbed at gunpoint.

The 35-year-old was involved in a horrific ordeal when she was tied up, put in a bath and had more than $10m worth of jewellery stolen from her by five masked, armed men in Paris, France, last week, and a source close to the beauty has revealed she "still has a long way to recover".

Speaking to E! News, the source said: "Kim is doing better but she still has a long way to recover from the robbery. She has been receiving some professional counselling. Her friends and family have been really supportive. Her sisters and mom have been checking on her every day."

Despite Kanye, 39, deciding to continue on his Saint Pablo Tour, the rapper makes sure to check in with his wife as often as he can, and stays by her side ''when he isn't working''.

The source added: "Kanye has been by her side when he isn't working and calling her nonstop to check in on her."


Whilst trying to move on with her life, Kim has been having "flashbacks" to the night of the robbery.

"Kim is very paranoid still when she is alone. She has been having flashbacks and hasn't been sleeping well. Her security is always around her now."

And whilst the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star finds being around her children - North, three, and Saint, 10 months - is a good distraction, the beauty and her husband Kanye West aren't telling the tots what happened.

The insider said: "Being around her children is the biggest distraction for her mind. North West is aware her mum is sad and not herself, but Kanye and Kim are trying not to talk about it around her."

Public appearances

Kim first cancelled a public appearance she had scheduled on on 14 October. The reality TV star was supposed to join her make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic for a masterclass in Dubai.

Now, a public appearance scheduled for 28 October has also been cancelled.

Kim was booked to make an appearance at Las Vegas' Hakkasan Nightclub a week after her 36th birthday.

According to E! News Kim had a $1m deal with the club for four appearances in 2016 and because she has already made two, one in April and one in July, she has two left before the end of the year.
