Kim Kardashian West is willing to do just about anything to feel safe and secure in the future.
According to a new report in In Touch, the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star is building a state-of-the-art panic room in her Los Angeles area home. The room might cost upwards of $100,000 the mag says.
"It will be made to withstand a fire of over 1,000 degrees and a 7.0 earthquake," a source said, adding that the room would be equipped with a bathroom and security cameras.
Kim, her family says, is still healing after being bound and gagged and robbed at gunpoint on Oct. 2 in her Paris hotel. Since then, Kim, as well as her family, have ratcheted up their security teams.
Kim is now reportedly being guarded by former members of the Secret Service, who will be "armed," a source told TMZ. Kim will also be accompanied by at least two body guards at all times, and will be transported in an "armored" car. The level of protection is presidential.
Kim's husband, Kanye West "has hired a company that protects government officials in war-torn countries," the source told In Touch.
She and her whole family are certainly shaken from the incident and have been reevaluating how they go about their business on social media and in the form of public appearances.
"This incident is making her question everything. How she dresses, what she does," a source told People magazine after the incident. Kim recently canceled an appearance in Las Vegas that would have paid her hundreds of thousands of dollars. She also opted for a small birthday celebration this week, as opposed to a big soirée that was planned.
In Touch claims Kim is also speaking to a therapist about the ordeal.
"Kim can reach out any time, day or night. It's been very comforting for her," the source claimed. "She's not well. It's worse than anyone knows. She's been suffering severe panic attacks and refuses to be alone. She's been having flashbacks and nightmares. She's a nervous wreck. She gets especially anxious late at night.
"When the kids are sleeping she has time to think and she just replays that dreadful night over and over," the source continued, "Kim's ordeal is far from behind her."
Khloe Kardashian spoke about her sister a week after the incident, telling Ellen DeGeneres, "Well, I think it's just a wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments. This is a really serious matter for Kim I think that's really personal as to when that emotional terror you could move on from that. I think for us it's all a wake up call for all of us, but definitely just to make sure our sister's OK."
She continued, "I mean, she's not doing that well. I mean, 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 of your guys' love and support and it will take time. You know it was horrible what happened to her."
