As one does whenever they need to discuss a major, slightly uncomfortable and/or emotional high profile celebrity news topic, Khloé Kardashian discussed Kim Kardashian's robbery on The Ellen Show. Ellen DeGeneres, the ever-sympathetic and endearing host, addressed Khloé's and the general public's concern for her sister, Khloé gave a surprisingly honest answer. One that may not be what fans of Kim and the rest of the family necessarily want to hear, but a real answer nonetheless.
Khloé's words hit home in particular because the usually upbeat and humorous reality star's demeanor took a more stoic turn. She told DeGerenes,
"I mean, she’s not doing that well. I mean, it’s incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we’ll get through it together. And we do appreciate all of your guys' love and support and it will take time. You know, it was horrible what happened to her."
While the denim designer's revelation isn't all that surprising, it's still quite unnerving to hear that the typically resilient Kim is so downtrodden.
Also, Khloé basically confirmed the speculation that Kim is changing it up and the rest of the family is following suit. DeGeneres asked if their social media sharing had been mostly "shut down" and Khloé responded,
"Well, I think it’s just a wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments. But this is a really serious matter for Kim, I think, that’s really personal as to when... that emotional terror you could move on from that. I think for us it’s all a wake up call for all of us, but definitely just to make sure our sister is OK ... Like I said, we’re a family we’ll do this together. I think it is important to make those adjustments and to pull back a little bit, I think is always smart."
This seems to go along with what sources told Us Weekly only a few days ago. A source said, "Appearances are being cancelled for them because of the robbery, Kendall, Kylie and Khloé have cancelled upcoming book signings." The report continued, "The family is all on lockdown right now. They're deciding when to discuss the situation and how to move forward."
While it feels unfair that the way the Kardashians operate has to be dictated by the fear that criminals inflicted upon them, it is also entirely understandable. People took advantage of their openness and the result is that they'll be more closed off.
