As Kim Kardashian recovers in a New York apartment after this week's diamond heist, it's been revealed the star has been targeted before.

According to the New York Post, back in 2007, Kardashian claimed US$70,000 worth of possessions were swiped at the Delta terminal of JFK Airport while airline employees and fans were taking her picture and asking for her autograph.

It's believed that the items included $60,000 worth of diamond jewellery, a Cartier watch, and Kim's laptop and digital camera.

A Delta spokesman at the time told TMZ they were "investigating Ms Kardashian's claim regarding a loss of valuables from her baggage."

Kardashian's rep at the time, Cindy Guagenti, called a journalist from the New York Post "weird" and "jealous," when quizzed over why no official statement was made.

Kim's not the only member of the family to have been robbed.
