Kim Kardashian West is "not doing that well", according to one of her sisters.

Khloe is the first Kardashian to speak publicly, following an armed robbery in Paris where Kim was held at gunpoint.

"It's incredibly traumatic what happened to her," she told The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

She explained that the Kardashian family are, for safety reasons, making some changes to how freely they post on social media.

"It's just a wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments," she said. "This is a really serious matter."

In the past two weeks it's been clear their social media presence has changed. They haven't been posting as much.

Khloe said the whole family needs to "make sure we're protected as well as possible" and "it's important to make those adjustments and pull back a little bit.".

During the incident in Paris, robbers made off with jewellery worth about $10m (£8m).

It's also been revealed Kim is suing a gossip website for claiming she faked being the victim of the robbery.

The lawsuit said that after being "the victim of a horrific and traumatic armed robbery in France, Kim Kardashian returned to the US only to again be victimised, but this time by an online gossip tabloid that published a series of articles in early October 2016 referring to her a as liar and thief".

The articles, it said, "claimed, without any factual support whatsoever, that Kardashian faked the robbery, lied about the violent assault, and then filed a fraudulent claim with her insurance company to bilk her carrier out of millions of dollars".
