Caitlyn Jenner is the first family member to address Kim Kardashian West's Paris ordeal on social media


As Kim Kardashian West remains in seclusion and off social media after her Paris ordeal, Caitlyn Jenner became the first family member to post about the armed robbery, sending well wishes to her stepdaughter and a warning for all on Instagram.

Caitlyn declared on Tuesday afternoon, below a black-and-white photo of Kim: "Love my girl!"

She added: "After hearing the full story, I'm so thankful she's okay. It's a reminder for us all to be careful in the uncertainty of this world."

Caitlyn has nearly eight million followers on Instagram, including more than 200,000 who left comments below the picture of Kim, posing in a loose cardigan sweater, dark high-neck top and a lace-up waist trainer.

Kim was robbed at gunpoint in the early hours of Monday morning, and French police are continuing to hunt for five people suspected of assaulting her.

After forcing their way into the American celebrity's apartment in the chic eighth district, the robbers locked Kim in a bathroom before escaping on bicycles. They stole a jewellery box containing items worth 6 million euro (£5.3 million) as well as a ring worth 4 million euro (£3.5 million).

Kim, who was in the French capital to attend Fashion Week shows, returned to the US on Monday.
