Kim Kardashian’s assistant has spoken out, just two weeks after the reality star was tied up, robbed, and held at gunpoint in Paris.
Stephanie Sheppard, who is Kim’s personal assistant as well as one of her best friends, was spotted fleeing the French capital with the Armenian beauty just hours after the terrifying incident took place on October 3.
Yesterday, in a note posted on Kim’s hugely popular app, Steph updated fans on how her best friend is doing.
“Hey guys, so you may have noticed we haven’t updated the app in a couple of weeks,” she wrote. “Keeks is taking some much needed time off.”

“But not to worry. We’ve called upon Kim’s closest friends, fam and yours truly to serve up some exclusives. Stay tuned for new posts and app takeovers!!” she added.
Meanwhile, E! News has learned that the 35-year-old is now receiving professional counselling, after being left traumatised since the incident.
“Kim is doing better but she still has a long way to recover from the robbery. Her friends and family have been really supportive. Her sisters and mom have been checking on her every day,” an insider said.
“Kanye has been by her side when he isn’t working and calling her nonstop to check in on her,” they added.

The news comes just days after Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian appeared on The Ellen Show, and told how the terrifying ordeal was a “wake-up call” for their entire family.
“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,” she told Ellen DeGeneres.
“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.”
“Like I said, we’re a family. We’ll do this together. I think it’s important to make those adjustments and to pull back a little bit, I think is always smart,” she added.
