Kim Kardashian is badly shaken up after the robbery in Paris where two men disguised as police officials tied her up in the bathroom and looted her jewellery worth millions. But someone who is not surprised by the whole incident is her former bodyguard Steve Stanulis.

"I saw this happening," he told the Daily Mail, adding, "It just had to with the way Kim flaunts her riches and her diamonds."

"The stones on her fingers are worth maybe $10 million and they try and save on their security. For $300 a day they could have a fully trained former police officer with them. That is peanuts to people with their kind of wealth."

Kardashian is a media sensation and she is active on her social media platforms such as Twitter and Snapchat. At any time of the day, her millions of followers know where she is, and flashing her jewellery on the Internet is just inviting trouble, feels Stanulis, a former NYPD officer of Staten Island.

To avoid such incidents in the future, Stanulis wants Kardashian and her husband Kanye West to spend their money on extra security. "I have no criticism whatsoever of her bodyguard Pascal Duvier. He is a good guy and an honest guy. But he needs more back up. If I was Kanye, I'd write a check today and take on six former NYPD officers who would protect them like no other."

Stanulis was let go from Kardashian's service in May after West reportedly flew into a rage after he saw the ex-cop chatting with his wife. Shortly after that, Stanulis told the media that West is a megalomaniacal control freak, but described Kardashian as a nice person.
