Pop icon Madonna is helping reality TV personality Kim Kardashian get over her robbery ordeal. The Material Girl singer, who previously revealed that she was sexually assaulted at gunpoint in New York when she was 19, reached out to offer her support to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star after armed robbers invaded her Paris apartment and stole her jewellery after locking her in the bathroom last month, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“Madonna has been helping Kim with daily phone calls and Skype sessions. Although they’ve known each other for a long time, they’ve become so close over the past few weeks. Madonna knows what Kim has been through and is helping her find the courage to carry on with her life. They’ve found they have quite a lot in common and Kim really trusts Madonna’s advice as they’ve known each other for so many years,” a source told Closer magazine.
Madonna isn’t the only star to offer support to Kim. Musician Courtney Love recently offered to “beat up” the men who had stolen from her friend. “I was sitting next to her at the Givenchy show and it happened an hour later. It’s so horrible. I just wrote her a letter and said, ‘If I find them I’ll beat them up. I’m so sorry’,” she said. (ALSO READ: Kourtney Kardashian breaks silence after Kim Kardashian’s Paris robbery incident)
On the other hand, HollywoodLife has stated how Kanye had nightmares about the Paris robbery, before he was hospitalized. The recent breakdown of the rapper has a lot to do with what his wife went through as she was robbed in her Paris apartment. “He’s been shaken up ever since the robbery in Paris. It did a number on him as much as Kim,” an insider told Us Weekly. “The mere thought that anything could happen to her sent him in a tailspin. He wasn’t sleeping and he was having nightmares about it.” Without his wife, Kim by his side, it became more difficult for him to face the crowd and perform. In fact, he couldn’t snap out of the whole Paris incident.
“Without having Kim by his side during the tour as planned, Kanye wasn’t able to snap back,” a source told PEOPLE. We just hope that things are back to normal for this celebrity couple. They did go through an awful lot lately with the robbery and breakdown.
