Kim Kardashian's 16th birthday photos have been posted by her childhood friend Allison Statter on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's website. Kim herself continues to maintain an extremely low profile and is still not ready yet to come out of her self-enforced lockdown ever since her horrible robbery ordeal in Paris.

Allison also shared on kimkardashianwest.com how she had grown up with Kim Kardashian, who turns 36 on October 21, and how it was "nice to look back.""As Kim and I have grown up together and gone through some life milestones—like getting our first jobs, moving into our first apartments, getting married and having babies—it's nice to look back at all of our memories together. Her 16th birthday will always be a special memory because it was at a time in our lives where we didn't have as much responsibility. We enjoyed every moment of being 16 together!"

She ended her short message with a sweet "I love you more than you know" directed towards Kim.
Allison Statter chose to fill in for Kim Kardashian on her website as the reality star herself reportedly has no intention to continue living the way she used to before her horrific experience in Paris. Khloé Kardashian has also shared that the family is looking at what changes are necessary to their lifestyle to maintain safety.
The Kardashians are known for posting every minor and major event of their lives online via their various social media portals. Just days before Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint and left tied up in her Paris apartment after masked gunmen robbed her of millions of dollars, she had posted a picture of herself showing off her expensive jewelry. Her location was also revealed through her posts. Given the lax security measures at the building where she lived, this made her a soft target for the robbers.
The traumatic experience seems to have left a huge scar on the famous star's psyche. She has chosen to surround herself with family and her closest friends at this difficult time.
