She's kept an unprecedently low profile since being tied up and robbed at gunpoint in Paris nearly three weeks ago, and now Kim Kardashian's personal assistant Steph Shep has confirmed that the star is taking time out of the spotlight. 

Steph shared a note called #StraightUp on the star's paid-for app this week, in which she told fans that "Keeks is taking some much needed time off". There was no input in the note from KKW herself, but Steph used the opportunity to reassure fans that the app's content would continue, thanks to the help of her family and friends.

It read:

Hey group... 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 cuz we've called upon Kim's closest friends, fam & 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

More details have emerged overnight about the events on October 2, with the night manager exclusively telling the DailyMail further details about what happened. Identified only as Abdulrahman, he told the site that after being handcuffed and forced to let them into the apartment, he pleaded with the gang member holding him not to hurt the reality star. "I told him, I ask you, don't hurt her. He told me, don't worry, we are here for money. One of the gang kept telling her to shut up. I put my hand on her shoulder and told her to be calm... She asked me, are we going to die? I said, I don't know, how can I know?" 

He also told the publication that Kim pleaded with the gang not to kill her as she had a family, consistent with other reports from the night. "She said, I have family and babies... and she began to scream again. That's why he put the tape on her mouth... He attacked her, holding his gun in her face. She was crying... saying, don't kill me... I'm a mom. Take whatever you want." 

Kim's younger sister Khloé appeared on Ellen Degeneres last week and told the talk show host that Kim "wasn't doing so good" and that the event had forced the entire family to take stock of their social media presence.
