Kim Kardashian: 'I can handle fame'
Kim Kardashian West insisted she could handle the pitfalls of fame, in an interview conducted before her terrifying Paris ordeal.
The 36-year-old reality TV star attributed her career to social media and admitted that the lack of privacy could be difficult but insisted she was happy with her life in the TV interview, which she filmed before she was tied up by five gun-wielding robbers, who stole millions worth of jewels from her in her suite in the French capital earlier this month.
Kim told '60 Minutes': "There are pitfalls. Lack of privacy, loss of privacy. And that's not for everyone. For me, I can handle it. I totally attribute my career to social media."
Speaking about her talents, she added: "It is a talent to have a brand that's really successful off of getting people to like you for being you."
Meanwhile, Kim's older sister Kourtney, 37, recently revealed the star is still "not doing great" after her ordeal.
Kourtney said: "She's not doing great. I think we're all really still shaken up and I just - you know, I think she has a big supportive family and I know that all the traumatic things that we've been through, we get through them together as a family.
"And that's what family's all about."
This comes after their sibling Khloe Kardashian, 32, made similar comments about Kim during an appearance on US TV earlier this month.
Khloe said: "She's not doing that well. It's incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we'll get through it together.
"We do appreciate all of your guys' love and support. It will take time. It was horrible what happened to her."
