Kim Kardashian West losing money after robbery
Kim Kardashian West has lost millions of dollars since she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last month.
The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star - who is an avid user of social media - rakes in an estimated $300,000 for a single branded post on Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter but her silence online since the horrific ordeal, which saw her robbed of an estimated $8.5 million in jewellery, may have hurt her wages.
Krishna Subramanian, co-founder of social media management platform Captiv8, told Us Magazine: "Someone like Kim, with her following and reach across the social channels, could average around $300,000 for a single branded post."
But she's not just losing money from her lack of online activity, as the 36-year-old beauty has also cancelled appearances around the world since the robbery.
The source explained: "She has a number of business obligations that can no longer be postponed. She needs to get back out in public to make money again."
However, although she really wants to get back out there again, Kim is reportedly still dealing with the trauma and has been having counselling sessions every day.
An insider said recently: "She's [Kim has] been having nightmares and flashbacks. She's talking to a therapist every day, usually via Skype [online video], phone or in person."
Although she's largely stayed indoors with her two children North, three, and Saint, 11 months, over the past four weeks, Kim did step out for frozen yogurt with her best friend Jonathan Cheban on October 24, before attending her husband Kanye's 'Saint Pablo' concert in Los Angeles a few days later.
She also made an appearance at her half-sister Kendall Jenner's 21st birthday party last week but hired three off-duty police officers to keep an eye on her during the bash.
The brunette beauty's decision to hire officers came days after she reportedly sacked her personal guard Pascal Duvier.
Kim and Kanye decided to "let go" of the bodyguard after he failed to protect her from the robbers, who stole jewellery from her worth an estimated $8.5 million, because he was looking after her sister Kourtney Kardashian at the time instead.
The decision no doubt infuriated Pascal as he's protected the businesswoman since 2013 and her husband since 2012.
