‘Oh brother! You never stopped traveling or partying. What anxiety????? Rich people problems!’ wrote one twitter user in response to the clip.  

‘They literally traveled all of quarantine’ came another comment.

‘She didn’t have anxiety taking a birthday trip with 5000 people though’ another person commented.

In the video, Kim and Khloe, 37, enjoy the scenic view from their $120 million Malibu vacation rental as Kim recalls a recent outing to Nobu with husband Kanye West.

‘I have not left my house since quarantine,’ she says. ‘I was so freaked out. People were trying to come up to Kanye and talk to him, and come up to me and ask for photos, and I was like, “Absolutely not, get away, this is my first time out. I’m not comfortable with you coming a step closer.”‘

During the outing, Kim opted to go maskless as she was seen leaving the sushi hotspot with her rapper husband, who tied a sweater around his face for protection.

Kim goes on to tell Khloe that she suffered from agoraphobia after the Paris robbery in 2016 when $10.8 million worth of jewelry was stolen from her at gun point. 

She explains that she was just beginning to get comfortable going out again- but now feels like ‘such a freak’ who ‘never wants to leave her home all over again.’

‘I feel like I had agoraphobia, definitely, after the robbery in Paris. I definitely would stay in, hated to go out, I didn’t want anyone to know where I was or be seen. I just had such anxiety.’ she tells Khloe. 

After the new clip emerged, fans were quick to point out that Kim and her family experienced a very different pandemic to most, thanks to their privileged lifestyle.

The mother-of-four shared photos of her luxurious getaway on social media along with a tone-deaf caption which angered some of her fans. 

‘Before COVID, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment. After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time. 

‘We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is.’
