Last month, the world was rocked by the news that Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

The police uniform-clad robbers reportedly tied Kim up in the bath and stole around £10million worth of jewellery.

Kim has since been almost silent on social media, breaking it only to update her Facebook page with a few pics and posts – which were later deleted.

But now she seems to have returned to Instagram – and it's for a very unexpected reason.

It’s hard to remember, but there was a time before Kim, and a time before all Kardashians were a thing, when Paris Hilton was the queen bee socialite – and Kim was her ASSISTANT.

The noughties were SO WEIRD.

And Kim’s return to Instagram concerns her old frenemie – as she has followed Paris on Instagram.

Although Kim hasn’t broken her public silence since the ordeal, members of her family have updated the public on her situation.

When recently speaking about the ordeal on The Ellen Degeneres Show, Khloe Kardashian said: "I mean, it's incredibly traumatic what happened to her. But our family is super-close and great and we'll get through it together, and we do appreciate all of your guys' love and support and it will take time."

She also said that the incident had made the family rethink how they use social media.

"I think it's just a wakeup call to make a lot of life adjustments," she went on.

"This is a really serious matter for Kim. I think that's really personal, as to that emotional terror [and when] you could move on from that. It's a wakeup call for all of us, but definitely [the focus is] just to make sure our sister is OK."
