Kim Kardashian is still reeling after being held at gunpoint and robbed in Paris on Monday morning, an according to sources, she’s “blaming herself” after losing millions of dollars worth of jewelry to five armed men.
“Kim’s in shock,” an insider told People. “She’s tearing herself up that she Snapchatted the ring so much and wore it all the time. This incident is making her question everything. How she dresses, what she does.”
It seems as though she might be in agreement with family friend Karl Lagerfeld, who not so shockingly made a statement about the incident on Tuesday.
“It’s a very bad thing for Paris, but I don’t understand why she was in a hotel with no security,” the Chanel designer told Reuters. “If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room. You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.” Point taken.
Kim’s BFF Jonathan Cheban was spotted bringing a goodie basket to the starlet’s New York City apartment, and when grilled by reporters outside, he replied, “She’s not doing so good.” According to ET, Kim “heard really loud footsteps in the apartment coming up to the second floor, where she was sleeping. She picked up her cell but wasn’t able to call [bodyguard] Pascal [Duvier] in time before one of the guys grabbed it out of her hand and she realized what was happening. It was absolutely horrific. None of them spoke English, so she couldn’t communicate with them. All she kept saying over and over is ‘I have kids. Take anything you want. Please don’t kill me. Please don’t kill me.'”
In addition to a jewelry box worth $6.7 million, Kim’s $4 million diamond ring from Kanye West was snatched as well, but she doesn’t want it replaced. “Kanye wants to buy her the ring again but she just says she doesn’t want to think about it,” a source told People. “He says he wants everything to go back to normal and for the incident to not affect their lives.” Perhaps she’s hoping the bling will turn up eventually?
“She believes if anyone tries to sell the ring they’ll find it,” a source for TMZ added. “The police report she filed includes the diamond’s inscription number and other markers that will raise red flags if it ends up on the market.”
