Khloe Kardashian: Kim's robbery was 'a wake up call'

Khloe Kardashian has described her sister Kim’s robbery in Paris “a wake up call for everybody” but rejected criticism that she had been too public in displaying her wealth.

Armed robbers forced their way into Kim’s hotel room, tied her up and locked her in a bathroom before making off with millions of dollars worth of jewellery.

She said; “Pulling back on social media I think is a personal choice. … No matter what you post or don’t post. … That shouldn’t give someone a reason to feel like they could do anything like that to you.

“But we definitely are just being more aware and I think just making changes to our lives.”

Khloe, 32, said the October 3 robbery was “an incredibly traumatic experience for Kim and she’s definitely taking some well needed and much deserved time off”.

She said she isn’t sure when Kim, 35, will make another public appearance, but she batted down rumours that her sister will be leaving the family’s reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Khloe made the comments while promoting her new jeans collection Good American with co-designer Emma Grede.

She said she agreed to partner up with Emma to design the brand for the curvy woman after she was body shamed.

She said: “I was always body shamed, and that was something that was super important to me to really teach girls to love themselves and love their bodies.

“I was always kind of told I couldn’t wear certain jeans because I was too fat to be trendy, which was always really hard on me.”
