Is unlikely to attend an event honoring her late father
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.”
