Kim Kardashian meets teenager whose father was shot dead by police in first posed photo since robbery ordeal

Updated: 

Kim Kardashian joined a teenager whose father was shot dead by US police as she posed for her first picture since her Paris robbery ordeal.

The reality TV star and her husband, rapper Kanye West, helped celebrate the 16th birthday of Cameron Sterling, the oldest son of Alton Sterling, whose death in Louisiana in July sparked mass protests.

The Sterlings' family lawyer Justin Bamberg posted the picture on Twitter, with the caption: "Shoutout to @kanyewest & @KimKardashian for showing 16th bday love last night to my client #CameronSterling, eldest son of #AltonSterling."

The photo was reportedly taken backstage at Kanye's concert at the Forum in Inglewood, California, on Tuesday night.

Kim's appearance with Cameron is the first time a new photo of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been shared on social media since she was targeted by robbers in Paris a month ago.

Kim sparked speculation that she would be making a return to public life when she posted an old snap on Facebook on Monday, but the posts have since been deleted.
