Kim Kardashian Robbed In Paris
At least two men dressed as police officers robbed Kardashian in the early hours of Monday morning, reports the BBC. The men were apparently dressed up like police officers and were led to Kardashian’s apartment by the building’s concierge. Once inside the residence, the gunmen tied up Kardashian in the bathroom.
The thieves stole an estimated $10 million worth of jewels, including a ring valued at $4.49 million. “The loss amounts to several million euros, mostly jewelry. The total amount is still being evaluated,” police said.
Kardashian was “badly shaken but physically unharmed,” a spokesperson for the reality TV star said. It is unknown if any of Kardashian’s other family members, including her two young children North West and Saint West, were in the residence at the time of the burglary.
Following the heist, Kardashian spoke to Paris police before flying out of France on a private jet.
Kardashian’s husband, rapper Kanye West, was in New York City performing at a music festival when he got wind of the frightening incident. He immediately halted his performance, telling festival goers, “I’m sorry, there’s a family emergency, I have to stop the show.”
Kardashian has yet to comment on the robbery.
