Kim Kardashian West to make first public appearance

KIM Kardashian West is set to make her first high-profile public appearance since she was robbed at gunpoint.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star will reportedly attend Denise Rich's Angel Ball on Monday in honour of her late father Robert Kardashian.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six column: "She is expected to appear. People were working on convincing her to come last week. She would join the family on stage to accept the award, but who knows if she will speak for the family."

Her expected appearance comes only days after it was revealed the 36-year-old television personality - who has North, three, and Saint, 11 months, with her husband Kanye West - has "ordered a complete overhauling" of her security.

A source said: "Kim's ordered a complete overhauling of security ... A team of security experts goes through her day-to-day life to assess potential threats and vulnerabilities.

"She's taking a driver and using all different cars to throw off people tracking her ... Kim spent almost a month completely indoors. For someone to go from a busy life to cancelling everything, that's a huge change."

And Kim has recently gone her separate ways with her personal guard Pascal Duvier.

An insider added: "Pascal, along with a couple other security members of their team, were recently let go by Kim and Kanye. It's a pretty tough situation overall and they love Pascal, but they couldn't take any more chances ...

"Kim is definitely ready to start getting back to her normal life, little by little. She's taking it day by day and isn't pushing it. It's been almost a month since the robbery happened and the break is something that she definitely needed."
