Khloe Kardashian has been slammed for 'showing off' her jewellery after Kim's robbery.

Khloe Kardashian posted a photo to her Instagram account yesterday that has followers seriously unimpressed.

In the post, the reality TV star shows off some serious bling with her rumoured new beau Tristan Thomas.

The pair held their ringed-up hands side-by-side for the photo, which Kardashian captioned simply with a love heart.

Thomas, a forward for NBA team Cleveland Cavaliers, was awarded the championship ring on Tuesday night. TMZ reported it boasted 6.5 karats and 400 diamonds.

But fans were quick to voice their shock, with many comparing Khloe’s post to the one made by her sister Kim prior to her robbery at gunpoint in Paris.

“Who tf posts a diamond when her sister’s diamond was just robbed at gunpoint?” one user commented.

Another one of Khloe’s concerned followers addressed her directly: “Apparently you didn’t learn anything from what happened to your sister. You should be careful what you post.”

The unease shown by her followers is certainly valid.

Only days after Kim Kardashian posted a photo of her new multi-million dollar diamond ring, fake police officers raided her apartment in Paris and tied her up in a bathroom before stealing multiple items of jewellery.

Despite the backlash, Khloe refused to take the somewhat ostentatious post down, in support of her new man’s achievements on Tuesday night.

As pointed out by UK media outlet The Mirror, the diamond and red/gold colour scheme of Khloe’s bling complements Thomas’ championship ring beautifully. His hefty bling showcases his team’s logo.

The NBA star cheekily commented “two rings one night” on Kardashian’s photo, and fans were quick to jump on the engagement speculation train.

Their romance is rumoured to be heating up, as Khloe finalises divorce proceedings with her ex, Lamar Odom.
