Kim Kardashian has been having a really bad year and now that 2017 is here she is hoping that she can start again from scratch. The first thing she wants to do is take control over her own life and career.
After being gone from social media for three months, in the aftermath of the Paris heist when she was robbed at gunpoint of millions of dollars worth of jewelry, the reality TV Queen returned to social media this past week.
The time Kim took off from the public life might have helped her reach the conclusion that Kris Jenner, her mother has been using her to gain publicity and make money. While at public events Jenner would always parade her trophy daughter around proudly after the Paris robbery happened, the momager pretty much abandoned her.
“Kim seems to be thinking that Kris used her to get her where she is today. She will never think of her mother the same way again!”
Now, Kim seems to have toned down her image, giving up the usual bling that we were used to.
“Kim hired a transition team to make sure that she gives off a different image than she did previously,” explained the insider. “And part of this process includes phasing out her mother’s management.”
“Kim is trying really hard to not be the same person she was before the robbery. She sees how she flaunted her wealth and it kind of just seems to make her sick.”
In order to do that, Kim has been posting family videos showing the side of Kimye that we didn’t know at all and a lot of ‘normal’ selfies – just fun, not as much lavishness.
The change is welcome considering that just a few hours before she was zip-tied and threatened with a gun, the Kardashian had posted about her reaches on social media.
“In Kim’s return, she did not want to be wearing any jewelry, nor wearing expensive clothes or showing off her fancy house,” explained the source.
