Filming on Kim Kardashian's family reality show has been put on hold as the star recovers from an armed robbery.
The socialite and entrepreneur is back in Los Angeles after she was bound, gagged and held at gunpoint in a Paris apartment as thieves grabbed jewellery and cellphones in the early hours on Monday, but her show will not go on - for the time being.
"Kim's well-being is our core focus right now," a spokesperson for E! - the network behind Keeping Up With the Kardashians - says. "No decision has been made as to when production will resume."
Meanwhile, a source close to Kim tells news show Entertainment Tonight the reality TV star is still very shaken up by her scary ordeal.
"This really shook her and gave her a major reality check," the insider says. "She still gets emotional thinking about the incident."
Kim has cancelled a number of commitments as she attempts to get her life back on track following the robbery, and on Wednesday, she axed a makeup class appearance in Dubai, which was scheduled for next week.
"She needs a break from everything," the source says. "Working and posting anything on social media is the last thing on her mind right now."
Meanwhile, the reality TV star and her husband Kanye West are seriously addressing their security in the wake of the gunpoint robbery.
Kim was left alone in her apartment when the thieves, dressed as French police officers, struck.
Her number one bodyguard was looking after her sister Kourtney elsewhere in Paris at the time of the incident.
It's reported she "blames herself" for the incident and places no blame on her bodgyguard Pascal Duvier, who was escorting her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner as they partied in Paris after the Balmain show that night.
"Kim is not blaming Pascal. She felt completely safe at the Paris apartment and doesn't believe this is his fault in any way," a source told Us Weekly.

Insiders echoed the sentiments to People magazine, saying he takes his job "very seriously" and it's not unheardof for him to provide security for other members of the Kardashian family.
Kim absolutely does not blame Pascal for this. She was the one to tell him to go out with her sisters since she was fine and thought she was safe in the apartment," a source told the mag.
"He’s worked for them for a few years now and is incredibly professional and protective — it’s what the girls and family love about him. They are always his priority and he takes his job so seriously — he’s proud of it.”
