How do Kim and Kanye stay safe?

Having just welcomed a new baby to the family the security around Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be the best money can buy. After the robbery in Paris Kim and Kanye take their personal security very seriously. Take a look at the different measures they have taken to protect themselves, their children and their surrogate.


They have a panic room.

After Kim was bound and gagged during the Paris robbery she has spent a reported $100,000 on a state of the art panic room. A panic or ‘safe’ room is a fortified room installed in a property that can offer shelter or a hiding place for anyone living in the house. It can provide protection from fire, terror attack, and extreme weather as well as break ins. The Kardashian’s panic room will, according to reports, be made to withstand fire hotter than 1000 degrees and a 7.0 earthquake. We are also guessing that it will be pretty comfortable in there, often panic rooms have sofas and beds installed as well as food, meaning the occupant can survive in there for a number of weeks.



Round the clock security 

Again, after being held at gunpoint in Paris, Kim now has a round the clock security detail that apparently include trained officers who have guarded government officials and royalty. They appear whenever the couple leave their home, they provide not only a physical deterrent but also an intelligence angle. They can look at the family life and see if and where there are any venerable spots that criminals can take advantage of. So it’s not just the beefy guy in the tight t-shirt that is protecting Kim and Kanye, it’s the security you don’t see that is doing most of the work.


Armoured cars

Kim and Kayne are driven around in a fleet of armoured cars, meaning they can also be protected while on the move. Reportedly the cars can withstand attacks from landmines and rocket-propelled grenades. This is a measure usually reserved for presidents and other important figures. But when you have as much money as Kim and Kanye then you can afford the best protection.



Scaled back the social media

After the Paris robbery in 2016 Kim took a few months break from social media, as she feared that flashing her upgraded diamond engagement ring on Instagram is what caused the robbery. The robbers admitted to studying the stars social media pages to work out her movements in the days leading up to the break in. Kim has also stopped showcasing or even wearing any jewellery in her social media posts, as it showed her attackers the amount of expensive jewellery she had. Also by using apps such as snapchat and tagging yourself at locations on social media, not just celebrities leave themselves vulnerable, you do as well.


Protection for their surrogate

Having another woman carry your child for you must be stressful enough, add to that the pressure of being one of the most famous couples in the world and it’s no wonder Kim and Kanye spent millions protecting their surrogate. They rented her a house in a secret location and kitted it out with lots of security measures. Apparently there is stae of the art cameras filming every inch of the property, so there is no chance of intruders getting in. She also has a six man security team doing shifts to make sure she is protected 24/7 as well as a driver to take her wherever she needs.


So it seems that the Kardashian-Wests are one of the most secure families in the world, perhaps second only to the First Family. But when your life is so public and everyone knows where you are, what your wearing and how much you’re worth, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
