Exactly one year ago, news broke that reality TV star Kim Kardashian was robbed and held at gunpoint in her Paris apartment. In case you missed it, the robbers stole $10 million worth of jewelry from her.
Since then, there has been a considerable difference in Kardashian’s lifestyle–from sharing that she doesn’t give her children material gifts anymore to the way she posts on Instagram, it is evident that this unfortunate incident has shaped the star’s lifestyle.
1. She reveals less about her whereabouts on social media
During the investigation of the robbery, the French police said that Kim’s use of Snapchat may have brought attention to the robbers, as we can see what jewelry she had on and the fact that she was home alone. In the past, the star would often post which location she was in while she was still there. She recently revealed that she no longer does this, preferring to save content to post for later.
2. Her Instagram feed is a lot less flashy
Kardashian was known for posting photos of her jewelry and designer clothes. Today, her feed mostly revolves around her family and businesses. When she was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she revealed, “I was definitely materialistic before. Not that there’s anything bad with having things and working to get those things – I’m really proud of everyone around me that’s successful. And of course, when you get engaged you’re going to show off your ring. If you get a car, you feel really proud and you might show it off on social media. But I’m not here to show off the way I used to. It’s just not who I am anymore. I just don’t care about that stuff anymore. I really don’t.”
3. She is a lot less flashy when she dresses up for events too
Publications have pointed out that during the past year, Kardashian hasn’t worn a single piece of expensive jewelry for an event, including her engagement ring (she chooses to wear her thin wedding band instead). The way she dresses is also a lot simpler compared to before.
Although it seems as if the star has completely moved on from the event, she reveals that she still experiences anxiety attacks from time to time. Her severe flashbacks have led her to see a therapist. We’re hoping that with this, the star is on the way to a healthy recovery.
