#kim kardashian is a wealthy wife and mother of two who loves to brag about her celebrity lifestyle on social networks and she's been unlucky to come to realize all its implications in the most brutal way. She's physically safe and sane now but she came so close to witness the tragedy on the night of her #robbery to gun point in Paris, she will have to reconsider some things in the way she's been carrying and protecting her glamorous life and style so far.

Fame vs Fortune

Apparently Kim Kardashian's french apartment block had only one guard on duty and no CCTV. It's located inside an Hotel so exclusive it's known as 'No Address France' and usually more discrete A-listers are able to enjoy its luxury and stay safe by using the private hidden exits.

To spoil such anonymity by regularly and very publicly entering and exiting the building during the fashion week, without caring to reinforce the number of guards and surveillance system, is quite ingenuous for a celebrity whose net worth is estimated at 150 million $ and counting. Perhaps she was thinking the elitist appearance of the block and the distance from the public created by fame were enough to keep away criminals, as if they're just ordinary fans. What Kim Kardashian and perhaps other stars forget is that fans are not the only ones who are witnessing their bragging when it comes to luxurious mansions, jewels and parties in TV programs and interviews. Robbers are watching too, and they don't care how fabulous is your body or how many likes you get with every pic you post. They will follow you, spot a fallacy and rob you to gun point.

Security first

Richer people like Bill Gates, Oprah or Steven Spielberg know this simple truth: out of sight, out of mind. They are barely seen around, not partying anywhere nor flaunting any private acquisition, reducing therefore the chances of being targeted. Johanna Primevert, chief spokeswoman for the Paris police, told the press: "It was really the celebrity who was targeted, with possessions that had been seen and noticed via social media, and it was these goods that the attackers targeted." It might be too much to ask to Kim K to stay reserved on her future trips and belongings, as sharing her lifestyle is itself a huge part of her public persona and business. The least she can do is make sure she spends enough cash on security before telling the world via Instagram she's alone and chilling in Paris. #Celebrities
