Kim Kardashian did not show up on Tuesday night for a rather big family event:
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 12 wrap party.
This was very likely due to the trauma of being robbed at gunpoint in Paris just over a week ago, as Kim continues to recover from this heinous, life-altering crime.
But the absence was especially notable because rumors of this program's cancelation continue to persist throughout the Internet.
According to the above Life & Style cover, for example, Kim has "walked away" from the series because it places her life in "danger."
This claim likely isn't true, but the gist of it probably is:
Ever since Kardashian saw her life flash before her eyes last week - when she was bound and gagged and believed she was going to be raped - multiple sources have said she will withdraw from the spotlight going forward.
So it would make some sense that she'd be hesitant to put her wealth and fame on full display every Sunday night on E!.
Kardashian has a contract to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and she makes MILLIONS off the show. We don't think she's going anywhere any time soon.
Last night, however, Kris Jenner hosted the Season 12 wrap party, with guests posing inside a photo booth throughout the evening.
As you can see above and below, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Scott Disick were all on hand... and all having a blast in the wake of Keeping Up with the Kardashians concluding its latest string of episodes.
Kim was nowhere to be seen.
Does this mean chatter of the cancelation of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is accurate?
Again, we doubt it.
We know multiple websites have made this claim and we know that Kim has remained off the social media radar entirely ever since last week's robbery.
She lost more than just millions of dollars in jewelry as a result of that incident.
In a way, she lost her innocence. She was made acutely aware of certain kinds of people out there and how they can pose a threat both to herself and to her family.
It's easy to see how she'll never be the same as a result of this confrontation.
At the moment, however, Keeping Up with the Kardashians is scheduled to resume airing Season 12 episodes on October 23.
All of those installments were filmed several weeks ago, of course, so there will be no mention of Kim's robbery or any of the fallout.
By the time Season 13 starts shooting, Kim will be many months removed from the most frightening six minutes of her life.
It's safe to assume that distance will make it easier for her to appear on the series and, let's face it, the incident will also give Keeping Up with the Kardashians a lot of fresh material.
We're not saying Kim faked the robbery; nor we are saying her reaction to it in the days since is insincere.
We're just saying that the show purports to take us behind the scenes of this famous family and producers now have a major storyline to focus on when Season 13 kicks off, likely some time in 2017.
Hang in there, Kim Kardashians.
