Here’s How Kim Kardashian West Reportedly Plans to Keep Her Jewels Safe After Paris
Kim Kardashian West has made serious life changes since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in 2016. The mother of three is doing everything she can to protect both herself and her family from ever having a harrowing experience like that again — and her latest measure is pretty major.
According to TMZ, the Wests have finally moved into the Hidden Hills, California, home they’ve been renovating for years, but they’ve made one massive adjustment, with the outlet reporting that they will no longer keep any jewelry in their home. Instead, they’ll reportedly be storing it in an undisclosed location that will be under “constant supervision.”
And that’s not all: The reality star is said to be so serious about the rule, she’ll only be wearing replicas or fakes of her own jewels from here on out, with borrowed pieces provided by stylists for red carpet events to be removed from the premises directly after.
In addition, the couple will also have 24-hour security at all times according to the site, proving that safety is their number-one priority going forward.
Kardashian West, 37, spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about the internal changes she’d gone through after she was burglarized, with thieves making off with jewelry that included her 20-carat diamond engagement ring (above). “I was definitely materialistic before, not that there’s anything bad with having things and working hard to get those things and I’m really proud of everyone around me that’s successful,” she said “But I’m so happy that my kids get this me and that this is who I’m raising my kids [to be]. Because I just don’t care about that stuff anymore, I really don’t.”
She’s certainly not alone in her misfortune — dozens of celebrity homes have been vandalized within the past year, including Kelly Clarkson and Kyle Richards Umansky, who was recently robbed of what is estimated to be more than $1 million in jewels.
