It's no surprise that Kim Kardashian is shaken up after her terrifying night in Paris, but along with trying to deal with what happened, the E! star is now also facing criticism from some skeptics that the entire robbery was a publicity stunt.
We're told Kim is stunned people would even contemplate that she was behind what happened. "It's crazy to her that people, even for a second, think she is fabricating this story," a source close to the star tells E! News, adding that right now, "She feels like no one understands her and what she been through."
"Kim is surrounded by her friends and family now. She is really upset and is going to speak to a therapist in deeper lengths about this," the insider says.
As for her hubby Kanye West, who left mid-New York concert when he became aware of what happened, we're told he's been staying by Kim's side. And he's already working toward replacing that gigantic diamond that was taken from her.
"Kanye have been so supportive to Kim and is being a really great husband through all of this. Kim is extremely sensitive and Kanye is just letting her do her and heal," the source explains. "He is pissed, though, and really wants to make these people pay for what they put his wife through. He plans on getting her new jewelry by Lorraine [Schwartz] and this diamond might just be bigger."
Kim's not against getting another ring, but she'll definitely rethink flaunting her jewels on social media. "She wants another ring eventually and she will just be very careful on how she displays it going forward," the insider adds.
"Her jewelry is part of her and she is not blaming herself for wearing the diamonds she's been given. She knows that her image is what makes Kim, Kim. She just has to be very careful going forward. She will be getting 24/7 security when she travels going forward."
The mother of two has kept a deeply private profile since returning to the United States after being gagged, bound and held at gunpoint by robbers in France. After fearing for her life, the reality star returned to New York City, reunited with Yeezy and retreated to their Big Apple Airbnb.
Currently, Kim is coping with the personal aftermath of the life-threatening experience. A source told E! News she is "emotionally damaged right now."
"This is something that has the potential to screw anyone up for a very long time," the insider said. "It was incredibly frightening and it's going to take a while to get over it."
