Khloe Kardashian: Kim's robbery was 'a wake-up call'

Khloe Kardashian has called her sister's robbery in Paris "a wake-up call for everybody" but pushed back against criticism that Kim Kardashian West had been too public in displaying her wealth.

"Pulling back on social media I think is a personal choice ... No matter what you post or don't post ... That shouldn't give someone a reason to feel like they could do anything like that to you," she said in an interview.

"But we definitely are just being more aware and I think just making changes to our lives."

Armed robbers forced their way into Kardashian West's hotel room, tied her up and locked her in a bathroom before making off with more than 10 million dollars (£8 million) of jewellery.

Khloe Kardashian, 32, said the October 3 robbery was "an incredibly traumatic experience for Kim and she's definitely taking some well needed and much deserved time off".

She said she is not sure when Kardashian West, 35, would make another public appearance, but she played down rumours that her sister would be leaving the family's reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Kardashian made the comments while promoting her new autumn denim line Good American with co-designer Emma Grede.

She said she agreed to partner with Grede to design the brand for the curvy woman.

"I was always body-shamed, and that was something that was super important to me to really teach girls to love themselves and love their bodies," said Kardashian, who has publicly chronicled her issues with weight.

"I was always kind of told I couldn't wear certain jeans because I was too fat to be trendy, which was always really hard on me."
