Kim Kardashian West is still canceling appearances & struggling with the aftermath of her robbery

Kim Kardashian West was the victim of a horrific crime, and in the weeks after her robbery in Paris, France, she has made the decision to keep a very low profile.

The event will be held on Nov. 21, and this year it will hold special significance for the Kardashians because their late father, Robert Kardashian, will reportedly be honored Us Weekly reports. However, a source has revealed that Kardashian West may not be ready to make her public debut, and while her name was initially on the list of confirmed attendees, it has since been removed.

"Kim is not expected to attend at this time," a rep for the event told the publication. However, Kardashian West's mother, Kris Jenner, as well as her sisters, Khloé Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, are expected to be in attendance.
