first time since Paris robbery
Lifestyle| | By
Three days after her much-covered Paris armed robbery, Kim Kardashian has left her New York apartment building.
She’s been unseen in New York since fleeing there Monday from Paris, but on Thursday she, husbandKanye West and their two young children headed out of their building.
She wore a baseball cap and a white hoodie that partially obscured her face as she clutched daughter North, 3, and got into a waiting SUV. West followed with 10-month-old son Saint.
Meanwhile, back in Paris, the French police were still investigating the robbery but no arrests have been made.
On Sunday, when Kardashian was in her luxury private apartment without her usual security, gun-toting men dressed as police officers and wearing masks forced their way inside, tied her up, gagged her and threatened her while demanding her jewelry. They escaped, apparently on bicycles, with a jewelry box containing more than $10 million in bling, including a $4.5 million 20-carat diamond ring she just got from West.
Since then, she has gone silent on social media, where she is normally very open and chatty. But her family is slowly returning to the digital fray, as unexpected public figures joined in the commenting on her terrifying experience.
Most of Wednesday’s social media entries were about what you’d expect — well wishes from Caitlynand a sexy photo from Kylie — but sister Kourtney’s return to Twitter found her in a reflective mood. Her post contained only a prayer emoji and a page from Sarah Young’s devotional book Jesus Calling, which read, in part:
“Remember that joy is not dependent on your circumstances. Some of the world’s most miserable people are those whose circumstances seem the most enviable. People who reach the top of the ladder career-wise are often surprised to find emptiness awaiting them. True Joy is a by-product of living in My Presence. Therefore you can experience it in palaces, in prisons…anywhere.”
Discussion of the robbery has even managed to come up in some unusual settings. On Tuesday, Supreme Court justice Stephen Breyer used the incident as an example during oral arguments in Shaw v. United States, in which the plaintiff argues he didn’t commit fraud against a bank by embezzling from another person’s account because the institution was insured.
The following day, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton expressed sympathy for campaign supporter Kardashian in an interview with Extra, noting, “I feel really bad for her.”
She also praised West for how he handled the incident. “He was in the middle of the concert and he ran offstage, bless his heart, she added. “I’m just glad nobody was hurt.”
