Kim’s def­i­nitely back on so­cial me­dia – but some­thing’s miss­ing…

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Kim Kar­dashian put an end to her so­cial me­dia hia­tus just over two weeks ago. the re­al­ity tv star – who’s fi­nally re­turned to in­sta­gram, twit­ter and snapchat three months on from her rob­bery in Paris – re­sumed her po­si­tion a fort­night ago, amass­ing over 42 mil­lion views on snapchat and 84 mil­lion im­pres­sions on twit­ter in just 24 hours. Go Kim! But although the star’s proven she’s still the queen of so­cial me­dia, fans have been quick to no­tice a dra­matic change.

it’s no se­cret that prior to the rob­bery Kim reg­u­larly flaunted her wealth on so­cial me­dia – like her £3.5mil­lion20-carat en­gage­ment ring, pic­tured on in­sta­gram shortly be­fore the raid. But fast-for­ward three months and she’s show­cas­ing new bling on snapchat – a sim­ple gold chain read­ing Cal­abasas, the name of a city in Cal­i­for­nia, which sells for ap­prox­i­mately $500 (£410) – and that’s not to men­tion her pared-down wardrobe. the price tags might still be de­signer – she’s not ex­actly broke – but a hoodie? on Kim K? So not what we ex­pected.

‘Kim knows now that the rob­bers tar­geted her be­cause of her jew­ellery,’ a source close to the star told Look. ‘she’s not tak­ing any more chances. it’s why she told her hus­band Kanye [west] she doesn’t want him to re­place her di­a­mond ring.’ and that’s not all. ‘Kim’s also toned down her look,’ says an­other friend. ‘she’s wear­ing her hair longer as a sort of cover that she can hide be­hind. she feels safer, in a weird kind of way.’

But Kar­dash diehards have accused Kim of ton­ing it down a lit­tle too much, query­ing an­other se­ries of low-key fam­ily snaps taken in what ap­pears to be a retro-style liv­ing room. one user wrote: ‘why you in a poor peo­ple house in all these pho­tos? who you fak­ing you rich af [sic],’ which has been up­set­ting for Kim.

‘she’s still not ok. she still wells up when she talks about the at­tack,’ says our source. ‘it’s only the kids that are keep­ing her go­ing right now.’ here’s to Kim re­turn­ing to her nor­mal self soon, mi­nus the di­a­monds…
