Kim Kardashian's robbery ordeal was terrifying, but there is a silver lining
Even if you aren't a Kardashian fan, you really have to feel for Kim Kardashian right now. The horrific robbery she went through this weekend was undoubtedly traumatizing, and will probably change the way she views the world for the rest of her life.
But details about how Kardashian is handling the encounter are starting to trickle in, and it's beginning to sound like the terrifying event might actually be causing her to get back to basics and focus on what's important in order to heal. And what's important is not the millions of dollars worth of jewelry that was stolen — it's her family.
Now that she is back on American soil, safe and sound, Kardashian is relying on her loved ones for comfort.
"Kim is just happy to be back with Kanye and the kids," a source close to Kardashian told People magazine on Monday. "She is still upset, but being with the kids made her feel a bit better."
The insider also explained that Kardashian had left her kids in the United States while she traveled abroad because she didn't want them to have to deal with the chaos of Paris Fashion Week.
"Kim left the kids in NYC because she thought it would be a much better environment for them," the source said. "Paris is crazy during fashion week and Kim had many obligations to focus on. She was in Paris for work and the kids had fun in NYC."
And Kardashian isn't the only one reevaluating things because of the nightmare. It also seems her husband, Kanye West, has been taking stock of what is important since he was pulled out of a concert to learn of Kardashian's ordeal.
"Kanye says that it has been one of the hardest days of his life, that he feels helpless," another source told People. "This is a guy who isn't used to feeling helpless at all. He's usually in control. And now he realizes that he could have lost her, and there wasn't a thing he could do about it.
"Kanye is ready to fly over there and take care of it himself," the insider added. "He wants to find the men who did this to his wife. But he knows that the best place for him to be right now is with Kim. She needs him now. He won't leave her."
