Kim Kardashian West 'doing great now' after horrific ordeal

Chrissy Teigen says Kim Kardashian West is "doing great" following her recent traumatic robbery.

Although Kim, 35, suffered a terrible ordeal in Paris, France, recently when she was tied up and robbed at gunpoint by five armed men who escaped with jewels worth millions, her close pal Chrissy, 30, says she is recovering.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, she said: "We've been texting. She's doing great now. It was definitely a traumatising, horrible, horrible thing. Honestly I couldn't even imagine it happening to me. I don't even know how I would have reacted. I don't think anyone would know how they would have reacted to a situation like that. It's definitely terrifying. And we're all looking at social [media] now, like, 'Crap, maybe we got to chill out a bit.'

"It's hard for me because I'm so used to being an open book. It was so fun to be able to do that. Everybody after Kim's robbery has definitely simmered down."

Chrissy's comments came after her husband John Legend, 37, defended Kim against critics who said the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star should have had tighter security.

He said: "You can't stop every situation from happening. People were saying, you know, security, this and that, but five people with guns come up? I don't care if you've got two or three security people - they got to back up. You don't want to get in a gunfight... You've got five armed guys coming, like, there's not really much you can do to stop that. Just give them what they want and escape with your life, you know?"

Meanwhile, Kim's sister Khloé Kardashian recently revealed that whilst the star isn't physically harmed by the theft, she isn't "doing that well".

She 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."
