It’s been a few days since news broke that Kim Kardashian was robbed and held at gunpoint in Paris, and while her family members have yet to officially comment (not including Caitlyn Jenner’s questionable Instagram post) sources close to her say she’s blaming herself for the incident.
After returning to the U.S. to be with her children in New York earlier this week, a source close to the reality start opened up to People, saying that the mother of two is taking the blame for flaunting her multi-million dollar ring on social media.
“Kim’s in shock and blaming herself. She’s tearing herself up that she Snapchatted the ring so much and wore it all the time. This incident is making her question everything. How she dresses, what she does,” a source close to the Kardashian family told People.
She’s also refusing her husband’s request to have her ring replaced. “Kanye wants to buy her the ring again but she just says she doesn’t want to think about it. He says he wants everything to go back to normal and for the incident to not affect their lives,” the source added.
Her words mirror those of her former body guard Steve Stanulis, who said the reality star “was asking for” the robbery to happened based on how often she flaunts her lifestyle on social media.
“I saw this happening. It just had to with the way Kim flaunts her riches and her diamonds,” he explained. “If you have a multi-million dollar ring and you’re sporting it on Snapchat, how much does it cost to get an off-duty or retired police officer, who is trained and you could have prevented this from happening,” he said.“She has nearly 50 million people [on Twitter] who at any moment and any day know where she is. And then she shows them this mighty great expensive rock on her hand a few hours before and she invites trouble.”
He followed that up by bashing his former employers, specifically Kardashian’s husband Kanye West. “Look, they had this coming to them. They do not respect the importance of security when you have a profile as strong as theirs,” he said. “When I worked for them Kanye would take off on his own in a cab and leave me behind to take another cab. It used to infuriate me as I wasn’t doing my job as well as I could have. When he went out for dinner in a restaurant, I would sit on a separate table and he wouldn’t even offer me a glass of water. That sums up his feelings for his security people.”
