Gun Control Advocate Kim Kardashian Beefs Up Security after Paris Robbery
Reality TV star and gun control proponent Kim Kardashian is reportedly making significant increases to her security detail after being robbed at gunpoint in Paris earlier this month.
According to TMZ, Kardashian “met with some ex-special force members from the Israeli army, ex-CIA agents as well as former Secret Service members” after the robbery. She has now hired an unspecified number of former Secret Service agents as part of the effort to “[amp] up her security to Presidential levels.” The security detail will reportedly include “one team of 2 hired muscles (minimum) everywhere she goes” and the car in which she travels will be “armored.”
The move comes after the 35-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was robbed at gunpoint by masked men in her Paris hotel room during Paris Fashion Week. The thieves — who remain at large — reportedly stole $5.6 million worth of jewelry, including a diamond ring given to Kardashian by her husband Kanye West said to be worth $4 million.
AFP reported that Kardashian was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” after the incident, during which she was reportedly bound and gagged.
