Kourtney Kardashian breaks social media silence after sister robbed at gunpoint

Updated: 

Kourtney Kardashian has broken her social media silence by sharing a book excerpt about "finding joy in difficult days" after her sister Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

The reality TV star and wife of rapper Kanye West was alone in a private residence in the French capital when five armed men broke in and stole millions of dollars worth of jewellery.

Kardashian was in Paris at the time of the attack but was not with her sister when the raid occurred in the early hours of Monday morning.

Days after the incident, Kardashian has posted on Twitter for the first time.

She shared an excerpt from a daily devotional book for October 5 which read: "Remember that joy is not dependent on your circumstances. Some of the world's most miserable people are those whose circumstances seem the most enviable.

"People who reach the top of the ladder career-wise are often surprised to find emptiness awaiting them."

The extract continued: "True joy is a by-product of living in My Presence. Therefore you can experience it in palaces, prisons ... anywhere.

"Do not judge a day devoid of joy just because it contains difficulties.

"Instead, concentrate on staying in communication with Me.

"Many of the problems that clamour for your attention will resolve themselves.

"Other matters you must deal with, but I will help you with them."

The message concluded: "If you make problem-solving secondary to the goal of living close to Me, you can find joy even in your most difficult days."

Along with the book passage, which also included a verse from Hebrew Bible prophet Habakkuk, Kardashian posted a praying hands emoji.

Mother-of-two Kardashian West was tied up and robbed of reportedly £9 million worth of jewellery while staying at the exclusive No Address Hotel, or L'Hotel de Pourtales.

The assailants forced their way into the apartment and locked her in a bathroom before escaping on bicycles after having taken a jewellery box and a ring.

Police in the French capital are hunting five people in connection with the attack, which they have described as "extremely rare".

They said the robbers were focused on "possessions that had been seen and noticed via social media".

Kardashian West, an avid social media fan, has not posted on her various accounts since prior to the incident.
