Kim Kardashian’s assistant just gave us an update on how Kim’s doing, and our hearts are going out

At this point basically everyone is aware that reality star Kim Kardashian was tied up and robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room several weeks ago. The event sounded truly horrifying for Kardashian, as a mother, a wife, a daughter — and most importantly as a human being who went through something that no one should ever have to go through — no matter who they are.

Several friends and family members have spoken out in the wake of the incident. Model Chrissy Tiegen came to Kim’s defense after a ton of completely insensitive – and often just straight up mean — online comments were directed at her friend, and sister Khloe said that Kim “was not doing that well,” in a recent appearance on Ellen.

And now we have a new update, this time from Kim’s assistant and close friend, Stephanie Sheppard.

Sheppard posted a hand-written note on Kim’s website that read,

Hey guys. So you may have noticed we haven’t updated the app in a couple weeks. Keeks is taking some much needed time off. But not to worry … we’ve called upon Kim’s closest friends, fam and yours truly to serve up some exclusives. Stay tuned for new posts and app takeovers!! Thank you so much for your support for my girl. Love you mean it! - Steph Shep-

Basically, it sounds like Kim is going to continue to keep a low profile, but her site will continue to update with the help of friends and loved ones.

And in terms of how Kim is doing otherwise, Us tells us that her lawyers released the following statement:

"She is very calm and very determined over a matter that was particularly violent. If she is summoned to France, she will come to France, but judges also have the possibility of moving [to the United States]."

While we’re so sorry that this happened to Kim (as again, being held up violently at gunpoint should never happen to anyone), we’re relieved to know she’s taking action against the people who did this to her.

Sending you all the love, Kim. And glad you’re taking some time for yourself right now.
