Kim Kardashian makes slow return to the spotlight - this time, for frozen yogurt
Kim Kardashian made a brief return o the public eye as she stepped out for dessert in her first proper outing since her armed robbery in Paris.
The reality TV star has been laying low at her Los Angeles mansion ever since returning from France after she was bound, gagged, and robbed at gunpoint in her private apartment on October 3.
Kim cancelled a series of work commitments and appearances as she recovered from the ordeal, but on Monday, she resurfaced in L.A. as she picked up frozen yogurt treats with her best friend Jonathan Cheban.
Photos of her brief outing, obtained by TMZ, show the usually-glamorous mother-of-two dressed down in an oversized white hooded sweatshirt and matching flip flops. She was wearing hardly any make-up, opting for just a little lip gloss.
Kanye West's wife has yet to directly comment on her ordeal, but in the immediate aftermath of the robbery, her representative admitted the star was "badly shaken".
Her sister Khloe shared an update on her recovery during an interview with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres earlier this month, admitting, "She's not doing that well. 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.
"We do appreciate all of your guys' love and support. It will take time. It was horrible what happened to her."
Meanwhile, Kim, who turned 36 on Friday, has since dropped a federal lawsuit filed against editors at gossip blog MediaTakeOut over a story suggesting her armed robbery scare was faked.
Website bosses issued a story retraction and published an official apology on Monday, prompting Kim to withdraw the legal threat.
Kim has avoided the spotlight for more than six weeks, only being pictured twice since the incident as she is re-evaluating how to come back from the robbery.
"She has zero desire to resume her old life," an insider told People.
"Kim is still figuring out what she wants to do. She has no plans for any public appearances."
The insider added that the media mogul has become "withdrawn" since the incident and will no longer leave her home without a bodyguard.
"She just wants to be with her kids and out of public. No one is pressuring her either. She has the best support from her family."
