Blaming herself: Kim Kardashian reportedly regrets posting so many images of her $4 million diamond ring on social media after being the victim of an armed jewel heist
Part of their haul included a stunning $4 million diamond ring that had been recently gifted to Kim by husband Kanye West.
'She's tearing herself up that she Snapchatted the ring so much and wore it all the time,' a source told the magazine.
Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, the French police and a former Pink Panther jewel thief have all said Kim attracted the robbers' attention by showing off her gems on social media, while her former bodyguard is convinced the robbery was an inside job.
'Kanye wants to buy her the ring again but she just says she doesn't want to think about it,' they added.

'He says he wants everything to go back to normal and for the incident to not affect their lives.'
However, that's unlikely in the wake of the shocking incident.
The rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family wants to change things, and Kim will be scaling back her public appearances, another insider said.

Already, the famous family have been spotted with extra bodyguards and have maintained a rare silence on social media since the attack.
Kim now plans to add extra security, including plainclothes and undercover bodyguards, to trail her every move and keep her safe.
'This scared everyone,' says the source of the violent robbery.
'They're not taking chances... It was a really scary situation for the entire family and it's just not worth it to put themselves out there unnecessarily right now.'
Meanwhile, Us Weekly reported that Kim's neighbours didn't hear her screams for help on the night of the theft.
The reality star yelled for help after wiggling free of her restraints after the thieves fled.
