Kim Kardashian has reportedly vowed to stop flaunting her wealth on social media after she was robbed at gunpoint, tied up and dumped in her marble bath tub in Paris.
The 35-year-old reality star was forced to hand over her 20-carat Lorraine Schwartz ring, worth $4.5million (€4 million/£3.5 million), along with her jewellery box containing gems worth $6.7 million (€6 million/£5.24 million) when five masked men stormed her luxury Paris apartment in the early hours of Monday morning.
The ring - gifted to her by husband Kanye West- was last seen sparkling on Kim's finger in a Snapchat post earlier that night.
The star agrees with critics who said she made herself a robbery target, according to TMZ.
She has reportedly decided to take a month off work and change the way she displays her fortune.
'Material things mean nothing. It's not all about the money. It's not worth it,' she reportedly said.

Meanwhile, it has emerged the robbers tricked their way into her Paris home by simply saying: ‘It’s urgent – we must see Miss Kardashian’.
The bizarre testament from the concierge is the latest spoken evidence to be made available to detectives investigating Monday’s £9m heist.
She says she was held up at gunpoint by members of a five-man gang, who then bound and gagged her before making off with the jewels.
The concierge – who has not been identified – insists he suffered the same fate, but not before talking to the criminals.

PORN SITE OFFERS $50,000 REWARD FOR INFORMATION ABOUT KIM'S ROBBERY BECAUSE SHE'S 'ONE OF THE FAMILY'
A porn website has offered a $50,000 (£40,000) reward for information that helps catch the masked men who robbed Kim Kardashian at gunpoint in Paris.
Pornhub made the bizarre offer because it considers Kim 'a member of the Pornhub family'.
Her sex tape with ex boyfriend Ray J has been viewed more than 110,000,000 on the website - making it Pornhub's most successful ever video.
The sex tape was filmed in 2003 and leaked in February 2007.

Kim filed a lawsuit against distributors Vivid Entertainment but reportedly later settled for US$5 million.
The clip was leaked in the same year that Keeping Up With The Kardashians began airing on the E! Network in the U.S.
Pornhub’s Vice President Corey Price said: 'Here at Pornhub we were deeply saddened to hear about the horrible incident involving Kim in Paris.
'We consider Kim to be a member of the Pornhub family and want to do all that we can to ensure that the perpetrators of this heinous crime are brought to justice.
'We are calling on all of our fans from around the world to come together and work collectively to provide any and all information relating to the crime so we can capture the criminals.'
The x-rated website has provided an email address: email@example.com, for people to send information to.
But police have noted inconsistencies in his story, and remain baffled at the apparent ease with which he was able to guide the robbers straight to the star’s bedroom.
He has told them that they arrived at around 2.30am, and got through a first set of locked doors by buzzing the intercom, and saying: ‘It’s urgent – we must see Miss Kardashian’.
Once inside they falsely claimed to be police, and then pointed a gun at the man’s head, forcing him to open Kim’s first floor apartment with a single key.
In fact, low-ranking night staff staff do not have such easy access to £25,000-a-week flats used by VIP celebrities including Madonna and Leonardo Dicaprio.
There are all kinds of security protocols limiting access to the nine apartments in the building, which all have armoured doors that are locked from the inside.
‘It is inconceivable that this concierge could have just walked into the flat with the robbers without breaking the door down, and there is no sign of forced entry,’ said an investigating source.

As the mystery deepened, police said that the gang is likely to have arrived and left by bicycle.
There were no CCTV cameras in or directly outside the block, but recorded images from other parts of Paris ‘point to the possibility of the gang members being on push bikes,’ said the source.
Kim’s stylist, Simone Harouche, was apparently in the flat at the time, but she has now been ruled out as the person who raised the alarm.
Instead Kim has claimed she heroically untied and ungagged herself, escaped from a locked bathroom, screamed for help from the flat’s balcony, and called her bodyguard at 2.56am.
Pascal Duvier, the muscular giant who is usually always at her side, was out at a nightclub with other Kardashian family members.
In a further twist, it has now emerged that Mr Duvier was declared bankrupt less than a fortnight ago, so he may have been feeling unsettled during the drama.
Kim herself fled France within a few hours of the raid, boarding a private jet so as to be with her husband, the rapper Kanye West in New York.
The Paris authorities have privately expressed frustration that she disappeared so quickly, as she and the concierge are the key witnesses to what amounts to an extremely serious crime.
In turn, Kim has indicated that she is briefing French detectives from the USA by telephone.
