Kim Kardashian reveals she has 24/7 security standing outside her house two years after 'life changing' Paris robbery
Talking about how she spends her £132m fortune, Kim told Wealthsimple: “I travel with a couple of security people and my nanny. At home I have multiple security people. I need someone on every edge of my property.
“I live in a gated community, and I have them right at my gate. Someone came in yesterday, a friend, and was like, 'Do you always have security standing outside your door? Because you never did before.' And I was like, 'Yeah — 24/7.'
“It’s just what I have to do to make me feel safe or make me able to sleep at night. And I think that had to happen after what happened in Paris.”
Kim was robbed at gunpoint while alone in a Paris apartment in October 2016 – and was so scared she thought she was going to die.
The attackers tied her up and put her in a bathtub while they ransacked the apartment for £9m worth of jewellery including her £3.5m engagement ring from husband Kanye West.
“It probably lasted about seven or eight minutes. It wasn’t that long,” Kim tells the website.
“They definitely wanted to get in and out and knew what they were coming for. I was specifically targeted and had been followed for like two years.
“I figured they had done their research through social media. They were pretty clear: I had done interviews about my jewellery and my pieces, so they always knew it was real. And I guess I was so open about talking about that.
“When you get engaged, you want to post the photo of your ring. I mean, that’s natural, no matter what size ring, where it comes from. Everyone does that.”
Since then, 17 people have been arrested in connection with the robbery, and Kim says it’s changed the way she lives.
“All that stuff definitely has changed for me in my life. I never say my whereabouts. And if I do, I make sure there is tons of security outside.
“I will do something, save it, and then post it when I leave.
“I think I really attribute that experience that I had in Paris to helping me shut down and completely not worry about the digital world and live in the moment and at home and with my kids and my family and my husband.”
