Kim Kardashian is taking no chances of being robbed at gunpoint again and has sought protection from ex-Secret Service members, a new report claims.
Sources tell TMZ that the 35-year-old reality television star’s met with former special force members of the Israeli army, former members of the Secret Service and ex-CIA agents. Kardashian’s new security detail involves reportedly “one team of 2 hired muscles” at the minimum, who will be armed, for everywhere she goes. Also part of the increased security is an armored car for travel purposes. (RELATED: Kim Kardashian Shares Scandalous Photos From Her Weekend [PHOTOS])
The change in security comes after Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint last week in her Parisian apartment. The gunmen left her bound and gagged and took off with $11 million dollars worth of jewelry. (RELATED: French Police On Kardashian Robbery: She ‘Flaunts Her Riches’ And ‘Invites Trouble’)
After the heist, Kanye West had said he was looking to increase security not just for the reality star but his entire family. The same sources told the outlet that West met with the owners of at least two top security companies.
Kardashian is known for sharing almost everything through her social media accounts, but has not posted one thing since the robbery.
French authorities flat-out blamed the reality star’s robbery on the fact that she shares too much information on social media.
“It was really the celebrity who was targeted, with possessions that had been seen and noticed via social media, and it was these goods that the attackers targeted,” spokesperson Johanna Primevert, for the French police chief said.
“I saw this happening,” Primevert added, according to The Daily Mail. “It just had to with the way Kim flaunts her riches and her diamonds. She has nearly 50 million people( on Twitter) who at any moment and on any day know where she is.”
Sources also told the outlet that Kris Jenner is looking into increasing security for all her daughters, including Kendall, Kylie, Kourtney and Khloe.
