KUWTK: Kim Kardashian West's new security team

Kim Kardashian West has completely changed her security team after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last month.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star is trying different tactics to keep herself safe after she was robbed at gunpoint in a terrifying incident in Paris last month.

A source said: "Kim's ordered a complete overhauling of security ... A team of security experts goes through her day-to-day life to assess potential threats and vulnerabilities."

The 36-year-old television personality - who has North, three, and Saint, 11 months, with her husband Kanye West - refuses to drive herself around anymore and instead gets her drivers to take more than one car out so people cannot track her.

The insider added to Us Weekly magazine: "She's taking a driver and using all different cars to throw off people tracking her ... Kim spent almost a month completely indoors. For someone to go from a busy life to cancelling everything, that's a huge change."

Meanwhile, Kim has reportedly seen a therapist every day since the incident took place in the French capital.

A source shared: "Kim has been having nightmares and flashbacks. She's talking to a therapist every day, usually via Skype, phone or in person."


Kim recently went her separate ways with her personal guard Pascal Duvier.

A source shared: "Pascal, along with a couple other security members of their team, were recently let go by Kim and Kanye. It's a pretty tough situation overall and they love Pascal, but they couldn't take any more chances ...

"Kim is definitely ready to start getting back to her normal life, little by little. She's taking it day by day and isn't pushing it. It's been almost a month since the robbery happened and the break is something that she definitely needed."

Kim Kardashian West losing money after robbery

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star - who is an avid user of social media - rakes in an estimated $300,000 for a single branded post on Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter but her silence online since the horrific ordeal, which saw her robbed of an estimated $8.5 million in jewellery, may have hurt her wages.

Krishna Subramanian, co-founder of social media management platform Captiv8, told Us Magazine: "Someone like Kim, with her following and reach across the social channels, could average around $300,000 for a single branded post."

But she's not just losing money from her lack of online activity, as the 36-year-old beauty has also cancelled appearances around the world since the robbery.

The source explained: "She has a number of business obligations that can no longer be postponed. She needs to get back out in public to make money again."

However, although she really wants to get back out there again, Kim is reportedly still dealing with the trauma and has been having counselling sessions every day.

An insider said recently: "She's [Kim has] been having nightmares and flashbacks. She's talking to a therapist every day, usually via Skype [online video], phone or in person."

Although she's largely stayed indoors with her two children North, three, and Saint, 11 months, over the past four weeks, Kim did step out for frozen yogurt with her best friend Jonathan Cheban on October 24, before attending her husband Kanye's 'Saint Pablo' concert in Los Angeles a few days later.

She also made an appearance at her half-sister Kendall Jenner's 21st birthday party last week but hired three off-duty police officers to keep an eye on her during the bash.

The brunette beauty's decision to hire officers came days after she reportedly sacked her personal guard Pascal Duvier.

Kim and Kanye decided to "let go" of the bodyguard after he failed to protect her from the robbers, who stole jewellery from her worth an estimated $8.5 million, because he was looking after her sister Kourtney Kardashian at the time instead.

The decision no doubt infuriated Pascal as he's protected the businesswoman since 2013 and her husband since 2012.

Tyga splashes out on diamonds for Kylie Jenner

Tyga has splashed out on a diamond necklace for Kylie Jenner, which features his nickname "T Raww" in diamond lettering.

The 26-year-old rapper - real name Michael Stevenson - took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a picture of his beau wearing the small glittering chain which featured the phrase "T Raww", his other nickname, in diamond lettering.

Alongside the photo, the 'Rack City' hitmaker simply wrote: "Feel me"

While there is no price tag attached to the newest piece of bling, Tyga's newest splurge on his 19-year-old girlfriend comes after the '1 of 1' musician recently faced a string of repossessions and money troubles.

In September, it was reported that Tyga's mother was at risk of getting her Range Rover repossessed after the rapper failed to keep up the $1,000-a-month repayments on the $60,000 Evoque model.

Previously, Tyga's own Ferrari was seemingly repossessed, while he was also recently the subject of a $200,000 lawsuit filed by jeweller Jason of Beverly Hills due to an allegedly unpaid purchase of a watch and chain in 2013, and has had action taken against him by more than one landlord for unpaid rent.

Tyga's repayments were due to be settled in debtor's examination last month, however after just two hours of grilling, the 'Ayo' rapper asked for the questioning to end because he felt he was too sick to proceed.

The legal representative for the opposing party explained: "Considering there are a number of documents we asked him to produce that he had not brought with him and the fact that we still have a lot more questions to ask, we have agreed for him to return with the documents on November 1 for the remainder of the examination."

Kris Jenner 'freaked' over Kendall's lip tattoo

Kris Jenner hit the roof when she found out her daughter Kendall got 'Meow' tattooed on her inner lip in July.


The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star - who is managed by the 61 year old - has admitted her mother hit the roof when she discovered the 21-year-old model had got the word 'Meow' carved in her mouth in July without telling her beforehand.

Writing on her website KendallJ.com, she said: "All my sisters knew... but my mom found out late and freaked out about it.

"There's no real meaning behind it, I just wanted to be able to say that I have a tattoo on my face! I didn't plan on telling anyone. But, in an interview, I accidentally said something about it without even realising. I guess I was just excited, lol. (sic)"

However, her lip tattoo isn't the only body art she's got as she's since got two more in white ink on her middle fingers.

She explained: "They're both in white ink on my two middle fingers. The one on my right hand is a full heart to represent an angel and my left is a broken heart - kind of like the devil side."

And, although her half-sister Kim Kardashian West has always told her not to put a "bumper sticker on a Bentley", Kendall is planning to get more tattoos when she's decided on the design.

She said: "I definitely want more [tattoos] and even though I used to say I'd only get one if it meant something to me, now I have even more possibilities! I just don't know what I would get right now. I don't have anything in mind."

Kim Kardashian West considering surrogacy

Kim Kardashian West has told her family she is considering "exploring" the possibility of having another child via a surrogate.

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star has previously vowed not to bear more children after suffering complications while pregnant with daughter North, now three, and Saint, 10 months, but it seems she and husband Kanye West are looking at alternative ways to expand their family further.

In a clip from next week's episode of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians', Kim told her shocked-looking family: "So I've come to the conclusion that I just want to explore surrogacy."

The 36-year-old beauty admitted shortly after Saint was born that her 39-year-old rapper spouse was already talking about wanting a third baby - but she had refused.

She said: "I said no way. I was so set on my two kids and how happy I was with my life the way that it is, but Kanye has been mentioning it every single day for the past 10 days. I'm like why is he doing this to me?!"

And it is no surprise that Kim isn't keen on carrying another child as she really struggled with her two pregnancies.

She explained previously: "With the issues I had last time, my risk of having pre-eclampsia and placenta accreta are increased and there's not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery.

"In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn't think this will happen. So as time goes on, I am stressing out less and trying to go with the flow ...

"We induced my labour and I had North soon after. Right after delivery, the placenta usually then comes out. Mine did not. My placenta stayed attached inside my uterus, which is a condition called placenta accreta ...
