Kris Jenner Reveals Family Has 'Enormous Amount' of Armed Security Since Paris Robbery: 'It Changed the Way We Live'
“It really changed all of our lives and the way that we live,” the family matriarch recently admitted during The Hollywood Reporter‘s reality TV roundtable.
This past October, Kardashian West was alone in her No Address Hotel room during Paris Fashion week when multiple masked men broke in and bound, gagged and robbed the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star of millions of dollars worth of jewels. Immediately following the heist, Kardashian West retreated from the public eye for three months, and her husband, Kanye West, increased the amount of security surrounding his wife.
But not only did the terrifying incident change the way that Kardashian West lived — her family also followed suit.
“Not only do we now have an enormous amount of security — everyone is armed and licensed; it’s legit companies that protect all of us — but also the way that we deal with our lives on social media took a huge turn: what we show, what we don’t show,” said Jenner, 61.
“If we go to Disneyland, we’re not snapping pictures with Dumbo; we’ll wait until we leave and then share something we want to share. But it also gave us great pause about what to share,” said the momager.
Of the items that were stolen from Kardashian West was a 20-carat, emerald cut Lorraine Schwartz ring that West gave her, which she flaunted on social media prior to the terrifying break-in. Since the theft, Jenner and her family have drastically — and intentionally — changed what they decide to reveal to their social media audiences.
“There is nothing wrong with working hard and getting something wonderful for yourself if you want to or that’s what you’re into, but I think the way that we share it with other people really changed,” said Jenner. “You think five times about what you’re going to put out there on social media.”

On a recent episode of KUWTK, Kardashian West acknowledged that the attackers who robbed her at gunpoint and tied her up likely targeted her because of her social media posts.
“What I think happened now after like thinking about it so much is that there was probably a group of guys that were following us the entire trip,” she explained.
“I was Snapchatting that I was home and that everyone was going out,” she recounted. “So I think they knew [bodyguard Pascal Duvier] was out with Kourtney and that I was there by myself.”
“They had to have known we were leaving that day,” she added. “They had this window of opportunity and just went for it.”
