Kim Kardashian taking time off after Paris burglary

Kim Kardashian West is having "much needed time off" from the limelight after she was robbed at gunpoint in a Paris hotel room, her assistant has revealed.

The reality TV star has been avoiding social media in the two weeks since she was tied up by raiders who made off with £8m of jewellery.

Her assistant, Stephanie Shepherd, has now posted a message on Kardashian West's subscription website and app that suggests she is still too traumatised to return to the spotlight.

She wrote: "So you may have noticed we haven't updated the app in a couple of weeks.

"Keeks is taking some much-needed time off.

"But not to worry. We've called upon Kim's closest friends, fam and yours truly to serve up some exclusives. Stay tuned for new posts and app takeovers!"

In an interview for the Ellen DeGeneres Show last week, Khloe Kardashian said her sister was unwell.

"It's incredibly traumatic what happened to her," she said. "But our family is super close and great and we'll get through it together."

The star was bound and gagged while her attackers took jewellery belonging to her and her husband Kanye West, who cut short a gig in the US when he was told about the raid.

There have been no arrests.

Four days before the robbery, Kardashian West posted a photograph on Instagram of a large ring on her left hand. 

The day after the attack, police in Paris said she had made herself a target by flaunting her lifestyle.

All the Kardashian sisters have their own paid mobile app and website, offering fans a deeper glimpse into their personal lives - including behind-the-scenes videos, diaries and fashion tips.
