Kim Kardashian West hired three off-duty police officers to escort her to and from Kendall Jenner’s birthday bash.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has been keeping a low profile since she was robbed by an armed gang of men in Paris, France, last month and, although she’s now safe, she’s not taking any chances and had three bodyguards watching over her while she attended her half-sister’s 21st birthday party at Catch in Los Angeles, California, on Wednesday night.
The 36-year-old reality TV star reportedly paid each police officer $100 an hour to keep an eye on her, according to TMZ.
No more Pascal?
Kim’s decision to hire three off-duty officers comes days after she allegedly sacked her personal guard Pascal Duvier.
The brunette beauty and her husband Kanye West, with whom she has children North, three, and Saint, 10 months, decided to “let go” of the bodyguard after he failed to protect her from the robbers, who stole jewellery worth $8.5m, because he was looking after her sister Kourtney Kardashian instead.
A source said: “Pascal, along with a couple other security members of their team, were recently let go by Kim and Kanye.”
The decision no doubt infuriated Pascal as he’s protected the businesswoman since 2013 and her husband since 2012.
The insider explained: “It’s a pretty tough situation overall and they love Pascal, but they couldn’t take any more chances.”
Although Kim has barely been seen in public since the incident in France, it’s believed she’s determined to return to work.
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.”
