Khloe Kardashian told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that her sister Kim Kardashian is “not doing that well” after being robbed at gunpoint during Paris Fashion Week.
“It’s incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we’ll get through it together, and we do appreciate all your guys’ love and support and it will take time,” Khloe said.
The interview, set to air on “Ellen” Tuesday, makes Khloe the first member of her family to directly address the Oct. 2 robbery. Kim has not made any public statements. Her spokeswoman told CNN that the reality star was “badly shaken, but physically unarmed” after thieves stole more than $10 million worth of jewelry. Police officials said Kim was tied up and locked in a bathroom in her discreet luxury apartment during the ordeal.
Family matriarch Kris Jenner declared in an Instagram post Monday that she is “grateful for my family, who I love more than words can explain.”
Kim has been uncharacteristically silent on social media, which experts have estimated could cause her to lose more than $1 million a month in revenue from Instagram ads and personal, branded apps including her personalized emoji (Kimoji) and her wildly popular game, “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.”
DeGeneres asked Khloe if the family was collectively scaling back on social media.
“Well, I think it’s just a wake-up call to make a lot of life adjustments. But this is a really serious matter, and for Kim, I think that’s really personal as to when that emotional terror — you could move on from that,” Khloe said. “I think for us it’s all a wake-up call for all of us, but definitely just to make sure our sister’s okay.”
“We’re a family and we’ll do this together and I think it is important to maybe make those adjustments and — to pull back a little bit I think is always smart,” she added.
Kevin Hart, a guest host on Tuesday’s episode, also chimed in: “I think that’s the dope thing about the Kardashian family is that you guys do stick together. So in a situation like this is something that’s gonna bring you guys closer and you’ll be able to make adjustments accordingly and move on,” the comedian said.
Khloe also discussed the ongoing drama between her brother Rob and his fiancée Blac Chyna, who currently star in their own E! reality show.
