Kim Kardashian’s assistant Steph Shep updated fans on the reality star’s well-being on Monday, October 17. Shep, who has been by Kardasian’s side for almost four years, posted a handwritten note on Kardashian’s website.
“Hey guys. So you may have noticed we haven’t updated the app in a couple weeks. Keeks is taking some much needed time off. But not to worry … we’ve called upon Kim’s closest friends, fam and yours truly to serve up some exclusives. Stay tuned for new posts and app takeovers!! Thank you so much for your support for my girl,” Shep’s note reads. “Love you mean it!”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has stayed off social media since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris earlier this month. Kardashian, 35, returned to Twitter briefly last week to unfollow certain accounts.
Shep was out with Kim’s sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner during the time of the robbery on October 3. As previously reported, she rushed back to the Selfish author’s side after being alerted of what had happened, and accompanied Kim on a private plane back to L.A. just hours after the reality star gave her statement to police.
“She’s not doing that well,” Khloe Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres during an interview on October 11. “It’s incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we’ll get through it together. We do appreciate all of your guys’ love and support. It will take time. It was horrible what happened to her.”
In a statement to Us Weekly on Monday, Kim’s lawyer told Us that the social media maven is doing everything she can to aid in the investigation.
“She is very calm and very determined over a matter that was particularly violent,” Jean Veil told Us. “If she is summoned to France, she will come to France, but judges also have the possibility of moving [to the United States].”
The thieves who robbed Kim — stealing $10 million worth of jewelry, including her 20-carat diamond ring from husband Kanye West — are still at large.
