KIM’S MELTING DOWN!
In the wake of a terrifying gunpoint robbery in her Paris hotel room, Kim Kardashian is struggling emotionally. “She’s been suffering severe panic attacks and refuses to be alone,” a source tells In Touch of the reality star, 36, who was tied up by armed thieves and robbed of millions in jewelry on Oct. 3. “She’s also been having flashbacks and nightmares. She’s a nervous wreck.” The only relief she gets comes from talking to her therapist, who is on call 24 hours a day. “Kim can reach out at any time, day or night,” says an insider. “It’s been very comforting for her.” The after-hours access has been a must. “She gets especially anxious late at night,” adds the insider. “Kanye [West] is back on tour, and when the kids [North, 3, and Saint, 10 months] are sleeping she has time to think and she just replays that dreadful night over and over.” Naturally, Kim and Kanye, 39, are increasing security at their Bel Air mansion, and there’s no precaution that seems too drastic. “Kanye has hired a company that protects government officials in war-torn countries,” a second source tells In Touch. One of its recommendations: to install a panic room equipped with cameras, a bathroom and other state-of-the-art features. “It will be made to withstand a fire of over 1,000 degrees and a 7.0 earthquake,” adds the second source, noting that the pair want construction to begin immediately. Only time will tell if that will help Kim regain her footing. “She’s not well,” says the insider. “It’s worse than anyone knows.”
