Page Six noted in its report that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s children, North, and Saint, are getting their own security teams.
“The kids being kidnapped is Kim’s biggest fear,” another source says. “She previously didn’t want to shell out for armed security, but now she realizes the family needs 24-hour protection.”
Even French President François Hollande is on the case, wanting those responsible for robbing Kim Kardashian caught.
A source close to Kardashian says immediately after the robbery, Hollande got “personally involved in the investigation.” In fact, he’s vowed to “provide additional security on [Kardashian’s] behalf next time she is in France.”
According to the report, French authorities will be embarrassed if the five men who robbed the Kim last Monday morning aren’t caught. Hollande wants celebrities to continue coming to Paris, and feel safe doing so.
As fans know, Kim Kardashian is staying out of the spotlight for the time being. She’s shaken up by the robbery and doesn’t know who she can trust right now. Kim’s team is in the midst of an internal investigation to learn if anyone has communicated with the robbers. They’re interviewing staff and reviewing phone records to see if anyone is connected to the thieves.
Kanye has gotten back to business and has resumed his tour, RadarOnline reports. He allegedly wants Kim to quit her family’s reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. E! has postponed filming the series in the aftermath of the Paris robbery. Kim Kardashian reportedly wants to stay out of the spotlight for a while and focus on her family in LA. She was spotted holding onto daughter, North, wearing a white hoodie with her head completely covered. It was a look uncharacteristic of Kardashian.
A source told Us Weekly that Kim Kardashian realizes how “naive” she was to flaunt her wealth and make herself the target of an elaborate heist.
“This incident was a completely life-changing event for Kim,” the insider said. “She realizes she was living in a bubble doing what she was doing. She loved flaunting her wealth and being so public. She felt safe and never really thought about her vulnerability. Now she knows she was so naive. Everything has to change going forward.”

A woman believed to be an ideal body double for Kim Kardashian is British makeup artist, Sonia Ali. Life & Style reports that Ali is a dead ringer for Kardashian and would easily throw off thieves as her body double.
Finding the perfect Kim Kardashian body double will be a tall order. Anyone who’s been told they’re a doppelganger of the star may have a real future ahead of her.
