Kim Kardashian has made her return to social media...sort of.

The reality tv star (35) has avoided the spotlight since she was held at gunpoint during an armed robbery in Paris earlier this month - postponed filming of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, avoiding all social media and has only been pictured leaving her home once.

But she made a brief return to Twitter on Wednesday, in order to delete 13 followers.

Eagle eyed fans noticed that the mother-of-two cleaned up her social media account, according to The Sun, amid reports the Kardashians are reevaluating how they use social media.

Earlier today it was revealed she cancelled an upcoming appearance at Hakkasan Nightclub in Las Vegas, schedule for October 28 in order to mark her 36th birthday.

Kim signed a lucrative contract with the exclusive hotpost to make four appearances there per year for a reported $1m, but due to the circumstances, they have rescheduled her appearance to a later date without it affecting her fee.

Behind the scenes, Kim, who is one of the most photographed women in the world, is reportedly struggling to cope since five armed raiders forced their way into her Paris residence where they held her at gunpoint and tied her hands with cable ties in a bathtub as they made away with $11m worth of her jewellery -  including a $4m diamond ring her husband Kanye West gifted her.

Kim is very paranoid still when she is alone," an insider told E! News.

"She has been having flashbacks and hasn't been sleeping well.'

"Her sisters and mom have been checking on her every day. Kanye has been by her side when he isn't working and calling her nonstop to check in on her."

"The scariest part for her throughout this experience is the fact that it could have been a lot worse, and she couldn't imagine what that would have been like for her children.'"

Kim reportedly "begged for her life" and pleaded that she "has babies at home" at the time of the robbery.

It's reported that North is "aware her mother is sad" but the family are not discussing the incident in front of the three-year-old or nine-month-old Saint.

She is also suing a website for claiming she faked the dramatic robbery.

In a lawsuit, filed in Manhattan federal court, New York, her lawyers have said that she was wrongly portrayed as a liar and thief after she was attacked.

It seeks unspecified damages from MediaTakeOut.com, saying that Kardashian was victimised a second time when the website reported that she faked the robbery and lied about the assault.

Meanwhile, insiders in the Kardashian camp say she isn't coping well.

Her sister Khloe told Ellen DeGeneres her older sister isn't "doing so well".

"It's incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we'll get through it together," she said.

"It will take time. It was horrible what happened to her.

"I think it's just a wake-up call to make a lot of life adjustments.

"This is a really serious matter and for Kim, I think it's really personal as to when - that emotional terror - you could move on from that. I think for us it's all a wake-up call for all of us, but definitely just to make sure that our sister's okay."
