Not long after Kim Kardaashian West was robbed at gunpoint in a high end Paris hotel, mega designer Karl Lagerfeld told her, "we are all with you."
But that doesn't mean he's totally surprised that the high stakes robbery occurred, and, in part, he lays a little bit of blame directly on the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star.
In speaking to reporters after his Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week, he said, "I don't understand why she was in a hotel with no security and things like this. If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room. You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you."
On Monday, thieves gagged and bound Kim and held her at gunpoint while they reportedly heisted nearly $10 million in jewelry, including a $4 million diamond ring that she showed off on social media.
He said the robbery has tainted the image of Paris, as well.
"Image-wise I think it is very bad," he said. "We make all the efforts to make Paris appealing and then, apparently [the robbers] were people from the east. Eastern Europe."
Karl, of course, wishes no harm on Kim and is still supportive. On Monday, V magazine shard an image of him with a handwritten note that read, "Dearest Kim, we are all with you. Love, Karl."
Kim has yet to publicly address the international incident, but, per the Daily Mail, her BFF Jonathon Cheban reportedly said, "She's not doing so good," as he entered her building on Tuesday.
People magazine said that Kim is reassessing everything from social media to public appearances.
"This scared everyone," says the source. "They're not taking chances …. It was a really scary situation for the entire family and it's just not worth it to put themselves out there unnecessarily right now."
"When something like this happens everything changes," says the source. "Everything will change. It changes the whole family — how and where they travel.... [Kim] will reassess traveling for work and feeling safe."
When she does go out, "[She will have] a much heavier security team," says the source. "There will be a focus on security personnel who aren't in traditional clothing. There will be a lot more undercover security."
