What Next? She’s Made A Fortune From Flaunting Her Riches (And Figure) On Social Media But Now She’s ‘On A Break’ From Instagram, We Ask: What Next For Kim?

When Forbes magazine placed her at number 42 on their Rich List of the World’s Highest Paid Celebrities, Kim Kardashian could not resist bragging about how far she had come from the days when she achieved infamy in a dubious sex tape.

Taking to Twitter, the multi-millionairess – who made her name in the much-maligned reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians – mocked her detractors with the hashtag: #NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent.

Now three months later, she is ruing the day that she began chronicling her life and riches on social media.

For, although the mother-of-two has amassed a fortune by posting every minute detail about her conspicuous consumption on social media, it was a photograph of her £3.5 million 20-carat engagement ring, which she posted on Instagram six days ago, that would prove her downfall.

She has 84.4 million followers on Instagram and 48.3 million fans on Twitter – and the numbers are rising in the wake of her traumatic gunpoint robbery in Paris.

And after receiving a diatribe of abuse – Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld blamed her for being partly responsible for the heist after flaunting her wealth – she has decided to take a month off work and scale back on social media.

‘This incident was a completely life-changing event for Kim,’ a source told Us magazine. ‘She realizes she was living in a bubble doing what she was doing.

‘She loved flaunting her wealth and being so public. She felt safe and never really thought about her vulnerability. Now she knows she was so naive. Everything has to change going forward.’

So what will Kardashian do now? After all she has earned her fortune through self-promotion – from the moment she first appeared on American TV channel E!’s real life soap opera nine years ago she has barely been out of the public eye.

In fact, she is so ubiquitous that some people have even suggested that the robbery, in which she was tied up in the bathroom of a luxurious Paris apartment and robbed at gunpoint by five masked men, could have been a PR stunt.

Certainly it appeared to have come at an opportune moment, raising her profile as the 13th series of Keeping Up with the Kardashians prepares to air – ratings fell to an all-time low in June when her brother Rob announced his engagement to model Blac Chyna.

However, according to her biographer Sean Smith, Kim’s career has been slowly moving in a new direction since she married rapper Kanye West, father of her two children, daughter North three, and ten-month-old son Saint in 2014 – the couple was named on Time magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World a year later. He believes she is perfectly capable of reinventing herself.

Not only has she become a vocal campaigner – raising awareness of the genocide in Armenia – her ancestral home – supporting the Dream Foundation for terminally-ill adults and breaking taboos on mental illness – but she is now making a fortune in mobile technology.
