The terrifying armed robbery of Kim Kardashian at her Paris apartment is not only impacting her social media presence and public appearance obligations, but also (possibly) the future of the Kardashian family's empire-establishing E! series Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The hit docuseries, now nearly 10 years into its reality TV reign, is reportedly hitting the pause button indefinitely.
"Kim's well-being is our core focus right now," an E! insider told Us Weekly Thursday. "No decision has been made as to when production will resume." A separate report from Marie Claire claims the series is now "on hold indefinitely" in the aftermath of Kim Kardashian being robbed at gunpoint in Paris. According to sources, Kardashian has also called off all plans for the next few weeks and will be spending her time in Los Angeles with family.
Thursday also brought news that Paris police had obtained security footage showing a mysterious blacked-out limo that circled Kardashian's Paris apartment multiple times during the robbery, with the Hollywood Reporter saying police are now searching for the vehicle:
"The mysterious black car with blacked-out windows is seen passing the building three times in the footage, first at 2:34 a.m., again at 2:45 a.m. and finally at 2:54 a.m. Kardashian called her bodyguard at 2:56 a.m."
Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered on E! way back in 2007, introducing the nation to Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian, as well as the Jenner sisters, Kylie and Kendall. The series, produced by perpetual money-getter Ryan Seacrest, has spawned multiple spin-offs including this year's Rob & Chyna and the recently canceled I Am Cait.
