Kim Kardashian is reportedly blaming herself for the attack (opens in new tab) that left her bound and gagged in Paris on Sunday night—which is equal parts sad and unsurprising considering that most of Twitter (and Karl Lagerfeld (opens in new tab)) seem to think this whole thing was Kim's fault due to wealth-flaunting.
"Kim's in shock and blaming herself," a source tells People (opens in new tab). "She's tearing herself up that she Snapchatted the ring so much and wore it all the time. This incident is making her question everything. How she dresses, what she does."

Okay, yes, there is a valid point to be made about safety and social media—especially as a public figure. But ideally, we should live in a world where a businesswoman who has earned her own wealth should be able to enjoy a diamond ring without worrying she's going to be bound, gagged, and blamed for it.
Speaking of said ring, Kim shut Kanye West down when he offered to replace it. "Kanye wants to buy her the ring again but she just says she doesn't want to think about it," the source continues. "He says he wants everything to go back to normal and for the incident to not affect their lives."
