Is un­likely to at­tend an event hon­or­ing her late father

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The ‘Keep­ing Up With the Kar­dashi­ans’ star is still shaken up af­ter be­ing robbed at gun­point in Paris ear­lier this month and she has now can­celled her ap­pear­ance at the An­gel Ball, an an­nual can­cer re­search fundraiser which is due to take place at Cipri­ani Wall Street in New York on Novem­ber 21. Her mother Kris Jen­ner and sis­ters Kourt­ney and Khloe Kar­dashian are still ex­pected to at­tend the black-tie gala, which will honor late lawyer Robert Kar­dashian, who died of can­cer in 2003. A pub­li­cist for the event told the New York Post news­pa­per: “Kim is not ex­pected to at­tend at this time.” The 36-year-old beauty - who has chil­dren North, three, and Saint, 10 months, with hus­band Kanye West - has been keep­ing a low pro­file since the rob­bery in her ho­tel suite, but made her first pub­lic ap­pear­ance last week at her spouse’s con­cert in Los An­ge­les, and so could still change her mind about at­tend­ing the glitzy event. A source said: “It was a very trau­matic ex­pe­ri­ence. It’s not good. She’s got things to work out. “[But] she may show up. We’ll see.” Bob Geldof, CeeLo Green and Star Jones are among the per­form­ers and pre­sen­ters slated to ap­pear at the An­gel Ball. Kim was left fear­ing for her life when a five-men gang broke into her room at HÙ­tel de Pour­talËs in Paris, France, on Oc­to­ber 3, waved a gun in her face, gagged her and tied her up in the bath­room while they raided her draw­ers and made off with her lav­ish jew­elry worth an es­ti­mated $8.5 mil­lion. Once caught, the crim­i­nals will face charges of armed rob­bery by an or­ga­nized gang, crim­i­nal con­spir­acy and kid­nap­ping, which could lead to a sen­tence of at least 30 years. In­mates sen­tenced to life in the Euro­pean coun­try are re­quired to serve a safety pe­riod of at least 18 to 22 years be­fore they can be­come el­i­gi­ble for early re­lease.

The ‘Keep­ing Up With the Kar­dashi­ans’ star - who has kids Ma­son, six, Pene­lope, four, and Reign, 22 months, with ex-girl­friend Kourt­ney Kar­dashian thinks his for­mer lover’s brother Rob Kar­dashian will be a great dad when his fi­ancee Blac Chyna gives birth to their baby next month, but he won’t be giv­ing him any tips on rais­ing his fam­ily as there isn’t a “rule book” on rais­ing kids. He said of Rob: “I think he’s go­ing to be a great dad. You learn as you go. There’s no real ad­vice you can give any­body, and if any­body says there is, they’re ly­ing.” Asked the best ad­vice he was given when Ma­son was born, he added to Peo­ple mag­a­zine: “None. I could have used some ad­vice prob­a­bly. It’s not easy. Kids don’t come with a rule book. You gotta fig­ure it out your­self. It’s one of those things.” One way in which be­ing a father has changed Scott’s out­look on life is that he has more fun on spooky cel­e­bra­tion Hal­loween now. He said: “The kids re­ally like it, so it makes me want to get into the spirit of it. Be­fore that, I was not a mon­ster Hal­loween guy, per se, but it’s fun now.” While Scott, 33, split from Kourt­ney, 37, over a year ago, he is still a part of her fam­ily’s re­al­ity TV show and ad­mits hav­ing his life shad­owed by a cam­era crew no longer feels strange as he has been do­ing it for so long, it is just “sec­ond na­ture”. He said: “I think re­al­ity TV is just a part of our life and it fol­lows our lives. “I’m not steer­ing in or out of it. It’s just kind of sec­ond na­ture at this point. You’ve got to re­mem­ber ev­ery­one in pro­duc­tion we’ve been with for 10 years so it’s ba­si­cally a big fam­ily.”

The 50-year-old singer is ex­pect­ing her first child with her hus­band Wis­sam Al Mana - whom she wed in se­cret in 2012 - and her friends be­lieve she has un­der­gone a full con­ver­sion to the re­li­gion which Wis­sam him­self prac­tices. A source told The Sun news­pa­per: “When she’s vis­it­ing Wis­sam’s fam­ily in the Mid­dle East she wears no make-up, no hair ex­ten­sions and keeps to tra­di­tional Mus­lim cloth­ing. “She feels like she has found a home with her new re­li­gion. She has spent a great deal of time study­ing it.” And the news comes as a stark change for the ‘Rhythm Na­tion’ hit­maker, who pre­vi­ously ap­peared top­less on the cover of Rolling Stone mag­a­zine, and suf­fered a “wardrobe mal­func­tion” at the 2004 Su­per Bowl. The source added: “The days of raunchy dance moves and sex­ual lyrics are long gone.” Mean­while, the loved-up cou­ple have al­ready be­gan dis­cussing names for their baby. A source said: “Her sup­port sys­tem is ex­tremely strong. She is tak­ing things easy these days and is feel­ing well but not over­do­ing it in any ca­pac­ity of her life. Janet is stay­ing healthy for her and her baby. “She’s been pray­ing for a child for a very long time. She’s al­ready in the process of think­ing of baby names.” An­other source added that the preg­nancy was “the best thing” to hap­pen to the ‘Love Will Never Do’ singer. They said: “Janet is su­per ex­cited. She’s do­ing great. Janet feels re­ally strong and is just so ex­cited for the baby to come. She feels like this is one of the best things ever to hap­pen to her.”
