Kim’s way . . . 

Sneed is told Kim Kardashian West is changing her plans.

Kardashian this morning cancelled a visit to Chicago later this week. She is now retooling her work schedule after recently being robbed in Paris.

The reality TV superstar whose social media presence is as big as the 20-carat emerald-cut diamond ring stolen from her at gunpoint during a daring robbery at her palatial apartment in Paris at 2 a.m. Monday rethought her Chicago visit in the wake of the attack.
She had planned to hit town this weekend with several members of her immediate family in tow, coinciding with her husband Kanye West’s Saint Pablo tour this weekend. Kanye West is playing one show at the United Center Friday night — and another at the Allstate Arena on Saturday night.

West canceled several shows this week after abruptly interrupting his Sunday night gig in New York to fly to his wife’s side early Monday. His shows in Chicago this weekend are still on.

OPINION

• Backshot: The robbers, who invaded Kardashian’s Paris penthouse not only gagged Kardashian, bound her hands with plastic zips ties and locked her in a bathroom — but she reportedly begged for her life in English, a language the robbers reportedly didn’t understand. The couple’s children, North, 3, and Saint, 10 months, were not present when the robbery occurred.
