Kim Kardashian West to go back to work

Kim Kardashian West to go back to work

Kim Kardashian West is slowly getting back in to "normal life."

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star is taking a much-needed break from work after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris earlier this month, but she's decided to start getting back out there in the spotlight over the next coming weeks.

Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', a source said: "Kim is definitely ready to start getting back to her normal life, little by little. She's taking it day by day and isn't pushing it.

"It's been almost a month since the robbery happened and the break is something that she definitely needed."

The time off has given the 36-year-old beauty the chance to bond with her children North, three, and Saint, 10 months.

The insider said: "She went through a traumatic experience and it definitely put a lot of things in perspective for her.

"She really hasn't had a chance to spend that much quiet time with the kids [North and Saint] since each of them was born. This was the first time in years that she could just unwind and be a normal person. She is really happy she was able to do so."

The reality TV star has agreed to discuss the robbery on her family's E! show next year but producers have said she'll be able to control the final edits and what makes it on air.

Kim was left fearing for her life when a five-men gang broke into her room at Hôtel de Pourtalès in Paris, France, on October 3, waved a gun in her face, gagged her and tied her up in the bathroom while they raided her drawers and made off with her lavish jewellery worth an estimated $8.5 million.

Once caught, the criminals will face charges of armed robbery by an organised gang, criminal conspiracy and kidnapping, which could lead to a sentence of at least 30 years.

Inmates sentenced to life in the European country are required to serve a safety period of at least 18 to 22 years before they can become eligible for early release.
