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. No one knows just how long Kardashian West intends to stay out of the public eye, but if there were ever an event that could force her back into the limelight, it would be the upcoming Angel Ball in New York City.
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.
The event is linked to a charity called Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research — Robert Kardashian died of esophageal cancer in September 2003 — and we’re sure Kardashian West would usually be more than happy to attend such a worthy cause, especially one with such significance to her family. But this report proves that no one can force her to come back into the limelight before she’s ready, and it also serves as a reminder that, while Kardashian West may be a celebrity, she’s also a person with emotions just like the rest of us, and she’s been forced to process something incredibly traumatic.
