We’re finally getting our first official update about how Kim Kardashian is doing following her harrowing Parisian robbery. BFF Jonathan Cheban says the beloved reality star is still taking the terrifying ordeal really hard. Keep reading for more of what he had to say.
Jonathan, 42, told paparazzi camped outside Kim’s New York apartment that “She’s not doing so good,” as he paid her a visit on Oct. 4. He was seen carrying a giant gift basket as he made his way inside, so he looked like he was doing his best to lift his best friend’s spirits. Kim’s been holed up in her NYC pad ever since fleeing Paris following the terrifying robbery, making no public appearances or statements on social media, so Jonathan’s observation is the closest we’ve come yet to finding out how Kim is coping.
It’s only natural that Kim would want her bestie by her side as she deals with the trauma after being robbed at gunpoint, where she was bound, gagged, and feared she might even be raped! The thieves made off with $10 million worth of her diamond jewelry, including the massive 20 carat rock that Kanye recently gave her, and the terrifying ordeal has her shaken up so badly. Hopefully being surrounded by hubby Kanye West, 39, mama Kris Jenner, 60, and now Jonathan will give her plenty of shoulders to cry on.
It’s a good thing that Jonathan is there for Kim because not all of her friends are completely sympathetic about her getting robbed of her flashy jewelry that she loved to flaunt on social media. Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, 83, told Reuters that, “It’s a very bad thing for Paris, but I don’t understand why she was in a hotel with no security. 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.”
Karl is friends with Kim and regularly features her sister Kendall Jenner, 20, in his runway shows, but he still scolded her about showing off her diamonds all over her Instagram, nearly hinting that she brought the robbery on herself. “You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.” OUCH! Luckily she’s got Jonathan in her corner.
HollywoodLifers, were Karl’s comments insensitive?
