Madonna is helping Kim Kardashian West get over her robbery ordeal.

The Material Girl singer - who previously revealed she was sexually assaulted at gunpoint in New York when she was 19 - reached out to offer her support to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star after armed robbers invaded her Paris apartment and stole her jewellery after locking her in the bathroom last month.

A source told Closer magazine: "Madonna has been helping Kim with daily phone calls and Skype sessions.

"Although they've known each other for a long time, they've become so close over the past few weeks. Madonna knows what Kim has been through and is helping her find the courage to carry on with her life.

"They've found they have quite a lot in common and Kim really trusts Madonna's advice as they've known each other for so many years."

Madonna isn't the only star to offer support to Kim.

She told Refinery29: "There was a VIP after-party for Riccardo's last collection in New York, and for a while, it was just me and Kim. We found out we had a whole lot of stuff in common: the same doctors, we're both L.A. girls.

"Then, of course, we took a selfie and my internet exploded. Like, 'What are you doing? You're punk rock!' It's like, she's punk rock, too. She's maybe not as willing to get up onstage and take off her top..."
