On Friday, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared on Instagram a close-up image of her new diamond grill.
“Good on ya Kim…keep flaunting your wealth on social media,” one user wrote. Another added, “Keep posting! There you go, get robbed again.”
“I thought after being robbed in Paris, she was going to be more savvy and less ostentatious on social media??” one person commented. “That lasted long.”
Many took issue with the extravagant post in general. “Hidious — donate to charities instead of living such an excessive life,” one person wrote. Another added, “Maybe it’s time you grew up, stop craving attention and find more worthwhile things to spend your money on. There’s a lot of need in this world. Just sayin.”
In October 2016, robbers stole $10 million worth of jewelry from the 38-year-old KKW Beauty mogul. During the terrifying incident, Kardashian was tied up and feared for her life. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in 2017, Kardashian said she was “100 percent” sure she was going to die.
“I said a prayer, I’m like, ‘I know I’m going to heaven.’ I hope my kids are OK, my husband [Kanye West],’” she recalled. Prior to the incident, Kardashian regularly flaunted her jewels — and grills — on social media.
“I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me,” Kardashian said on The Ellen Show. “I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things.”
The thieves had apparently followed Kardashian, planning the robbery over many months.
“Knowing the information that I know now, they had been following me for two years,” she explained. “They had been hearing interviews that I did getting excited about this jewelry or this jewelry, and it’s not to say that I’ll never wear jewelry again or anything like that. I truly don’t know if I’d ever feel comfortable, I truly don’t know if I’d ever wear real jewelry again. My whole life has changed in terms of how I travel and what security.”
She added, “I was definitely materialistic before, not that there’s anything bad with having things and working hard to get those things and I’m really proud of everyone around me that’s successful. But … I just don’t care about that stuff anymore, I really don’t.
“Of course when you get engaged you’re going to show off your ring, if you get a car — no matter what it is — you feel really proud and you might show it off on social media,” she admitted. “I’m not here to show off the way that I used to. It’s just not who I am anymore.”
Never say never.
