9 October 2016 / 2 months 21 hours ago

Kim Kardashian West has called in special forces veterans to investigate her attack in Paris last week. 

Kim, 35, was tied up and locked in the bathroom of her hotel while gun-toting thieves made off with jewels worth millions and two iPhones and she and her husband Kanye West have enlisted the help of experts to find the perpetrators and overhaul their personal security plan. 

A source told the Sunday People: "They've decided to use their own experts as part of their security overhaul. Some of them have worked for the world's top intelligence agencies. If anyone can get to the bottom of what went on, these guys will.

"For Kim, it's about feeling safe. She needs to know that a security breach like this will never happen again.

"For Kanye, it's about knowing exactly who is responsible."

And it has been claimed that Kim is looking for a body double after her terrible ordeal in which five armed, masked men stormed into her room and tied her up with plastic handcuffs and duct tape.

A source previously said: "There's a circus that follows Kim's every move. Her new security team is recommending she employ a body double to help confuse would-be assailants."

Kanye, 39 - who resumed his 'Saint Pablo' tour over the weekend after postponing two dates to look after Kim - is said to be feeling "helpless" following the robbery.

An insider explained: "Kanye says that it has been one of the hardest times of his life, that he feels helpless.

"This is a guy who isn't used to feeling helpless at all. He's usually in control. And now he sees that he could have lost her, and there wasn't a thing he could do about it."

Hours after the terrifying ordeal, which left her "badly shaken" but unhurt, Kim flew out of Paris to be with Kanye - the father of her kids North, three, and Saint, 10 months - in New York.
