Kim Kardashian West wants a body double for safety

Kim Kardashian West is looking for a body double.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star was subject to a terrible ordeal in Paris, France, earlier this week when five armed, masked men stormed into her apartment, tied her up with plastic handcuffs, and duct tape, and stole more than $10 million worth of jewellery.

Now, the 35-year-old beauty is on the lookout for a body double to help confuse any would-be assailants.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: "There's a circus that follows Kim's every move. Her new security team is recommending she employ a body double to help confuse would-be assailants."

But Kim has other worries on her mind, as another source claims she is most concerned about the possibility of her two children, daughter North, three, and 10-month-old Saint, being "kidnapped".

The source said: "The kids being kidnapped is Kim's biggest fear. She previously didn't want to shell out for armed security, but now she realises the family needs 24-hour protection."

And for Kim - who is married to music mogul Kanye West - the problems don't stop there, as she is also finding it difficult to know who to trust, amid speculation that the robbery may have been an inside job.

A third source told the publication: "She doesn't know who she can trust. Kim's team is conducting an internal investigation -interviewing assistants and looking through phones for evidence that anyone may have communicated with the thieves. They are slowly ruling people out."

Police first reported on Tuesday (04.10.16) that they suspect the men had information that meant they knew her bodyguards wouldn't be present at that time.

A source said previously: "French police suspect that the five alleged robbers had some contact with her security and were tipped off about her procedures.

"They knew there was no security [with her inside her apartment that night]. All they had to do was go in, make contact with someone inside the hotel."
