“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian has been on a social media hiatus since she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last week, but she finally returned to Twitter in the subtlest way Wednesday. The famous reality star unfollowed a handful of people. While it’s not the emotional statement many fans are waiting for, it proves that she has logged into her account.
Before the attack, when up to $11 million in jewels was stolen, Kardashian followed 121 people, according to The Sun. After her mini purge, she now follows 108 people. It hasn’t been revealed who she eliminated.
Even though she hasn’t posted since Oct. 2, her amount of followers has grown. Before she was gagged, handcuffed and locked in a bathroom, she had 48.3 million followers on Twitter. Now, she boasts 48.5 million followers.
The decision to eliminate some people from her page might be because of the Oct. 3 heist. Kardashian reportedly blames herself. Even friend Karl Lagerfeld, the head designer of Chanel, criticized the reality star-turned-entrepreneur for flaunting her wealth.
“This incident was a completely life-changing event for Kim,” an insider told Us Weekly Oct. 5. “She realizes she was living in a bubble doing what she was doing. She loved flaunting her wealth and being so public. She felt safe and never really thought about her vulnerability. Now she knows she was so naive. Everything has to change going forward.”
The 35-year-old is still “shaken up” and hasn’t returned to work since the incident. “Right now, she's still focused on trying to feel better about the whole situation,” a source told Entertainment Tonight Online Wednesday. “Kim is at home with [her kids] North and Saint in Los Angeles. Her mom [Kris Jenner] and sisters visit her regularly. They're being great and supporting her in every way they can.”
Filming of “KUWTK” has been put on hold while Kardashian recuperates at home with her two kids.
