Kim Kardashian Limits Social Media & Public Appearances Post-Robbery

The television personality is taking her privacy seriously following her Paris robbery ordeal. 

A lot of changes are underway in Kim Kardashian's camp following her Paris Fashion Week incident where she was held at gunpoint as robbers got away with over $10 million in jewelry.

People reports the reality star will reduce the amounts of social media and public appearances she makes while police continue to investigate the incident. “This scared everyone,” the unnamed source said. “They’re not taking chances ... It was a really scary situation for the entire family, and it’s just not worth it to put themselves out there unnecessarily right now.” Kardashian will also hire more security members with the inclusion of plainclothes guards. Since the robbery early Monday (Oct. 3), the 35-year-old's "normal" activities were scrutinized as critics suggest Kardashian's openness about her private life made her an easy target for the robbers.

Johanna Primevert, the chief spokesperson for the Paris police department, tells CNN the masked men strictly went for the items Kim posted on Snapchat and Instagram just a few hours before the incident. “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,” Primevert said.

Five men dressed as police officers entered through the service entrance of the mansion hotel around 2:30 a.m. Kardashian was tied up by two of the men and locked in a bathroom while the suspects stole two cellphones, a ring worth $4 million and a jewelry box containing over $6 million in items.

Kardashian's family has followed her lead of keeping quiet on social media, except Kylie Jenner's "throwback" IG-pic from her Turks & Caicos trip on Tuesday (Oct. 4). For now, Kim has been in the company of friends like Johnathan Cheban and Lala Anthony. "She’s barely slept. She’s had no anxiety medication or alcoholic drinks as she doesn’t do any of that stuff,” the source said. “She’s just got comfort from being around her kids and friends. They have been her rocks and spent the day with her yesterday.”

Her first cancelled appearance will be The Master Class, a beauty demonstration with her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. The event was scheduled for October 14 in Dubai but has been pushed to an unannounced date.

Cardi B Comments On Government Shutdown: "Our Country Is In A Hellhole"

Cardi B wanted to give her two cents on the now-25 day partial government shutdown. The Grammy-nominated rapper got political on her Instagram page, stating that she believes our country is in a "Hellhole" and she feels terribly for those affected.

"It’s been a little bit over three weeks. Trump is now ordering, as in summoning, federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid," she said. Cardi continued by telling people not to drag former President Barack Obama's partial government shutdown into the conversation, as his shutdown was for a better reason than Trump's dream border wall.

"Now, I don't want to hear any of y'all motherf**kas talkin' 'bout, 'Oh, but Obama shut down the government for 17 days,' Yeah, b***h! For healthcare!" she continued. "So your grandma could check her blood pressure and you b****es could go check y'all p***y at the gynecologist with no motherf**kin' problem. This sh*t is really f**kin' serious, bro. This sh*t is crazy. Like, our country is in a hellhole right now. All for a f**kin' wall."

The Invasion of Privacy MC continues by stating that she is "scared" and feels badly for those who aren't able to be compensated for their work.

"Now, I now a lot of y’all don’t care…  b***h I’m scared," she concludes. "This is crazy, and I really feel bad for these people that gotta go to f**kin' work without getting f**kin' paid."

R. Kelly's Former Manager Will Reportedly Surrender To Georgia Police For Threats Towards Savage Family

James Mason, R. Kelly’s former manager who is being accused of sending terrorizing, threatening text messages to the father of one of Kelly’s accusers, is reportedly surrendering to Georgia authorities.

According to The Blast, Mason will surrender in Henry County, Ga. on Wednesday (Jan. 16) after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest, citing “terroristic threats and acts.” A police report obtained by the site states that Mason told Timothy Savage, the father of Kelly’s alleged cult member Jocelyn Savage, that he was going to “f**king kill” him when he saw him, and that he was going to harm him and his family.

A second manager for Kelly, Don Russell, is also reportedly under investigation for allegedly harassing and threatening the Savage family for participating in the six-part docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly. 

Mr. Savage was reportedly texted by Mr. Russell, who said it would “be best for him and his family if the documentary [Surviving R. Kelly] does not air." During a phone call that was put on speaker, Russell reportedly threatened to reveal information about Mr. Savage if he did not pull out of the doc.

Kelly is under investigation in both Georgia and Illinois, which is reportedly a direct response to the allegations made in the Lifetime docu-series.

Porn Site Condemns Users After Searches For R. Kelly's Sex Tape Increase

Searches for the infamous sex tape recorded by R. Kelly and featuring a minor has seen an uptick, and a porn site is condemning its users from trying to find it, because child pornography is illegal.

According to The Blast, porn site xHamster reportedly said that searches for the term ‘R. Kelly’ are up 388 percent since the beginning of January. Of course, this coincides with the release of the six-part Lifetime docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, which chronicles over 20 years of indecent and immoral behavior towards teenage girls and women.

The site noted that they do not have the infamous tape that involves the controversial musician having sex with and urinating on an underage girl, nor will they ever carry it and other videos like it on their site.

“The R. Kelly tape is not on xHamster, nor would we ever allow it to be,” representatives for the site told The Blast. “Regardless of the news or sensation, a tape featuring underaged is both illegal and immoral.” xHamster also says they will be “disabling searches and putting up messages alerting any searches that the content is not acceptable.”

One of the messages on the site says “Please consider that in searching for and viewing such content, you may be re-victimizing a minor who could not consent.”
