Armed robbers forced their way into a private Paris residence where Kardashian West was staying, and stole more than $10 million worth of jewelry, police officials said Monday, Oct. 3, 2016. “She is badly shaken but physically unharmed”, Kardashian’s spokesperson Ina Treciokas told CNN Monday.
According to a former London Metropolitan detective, Kardashian West’s constant online posts have are “the social media equivalent of leaving your window open”.
West kept to his usual street cool of jogging bottoms, green raincoat and a grey hoodie as he followed his wife into the building, where a five-bedroom penthouse was recently on the market for $24.5 million.
Authorities reportedly have a long list of suspects, including people in Kim’s personal circle, Paris Fashion Week attendees, and other residents of the No Address hotel. Two mobile phones were also taken. They threatened the doorman and then made it to Kardashian’s room.
Reports emerged that the 35-year-old star feared she would be raped when the men first stormed into her bedroom, taped her mouth and grabbed her by the ankles.
In the video, Kardashian was clearly wearing the 15-carat diamond engagement ring given to her by Kanye West in 2013.
In the absence of updates from Kardashian herself, plenty of theories and details are floating around about what happened in the luxury apartment where she was staying. Security and police arrived soon after.
Police have declared that the men then fled the scene on bicycles.
Kim Kardashian’s bodyguard, Pascal, who she praised for protecting her from an attacker just last week, was out on the town with Kourtney Kardashian, 37, and Kendall Jenner, 20, when the reality star was held hostage in a bathroom and robbed on October 3.
The topic of social media and safety has come up on her family’s popular E! reality series, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians“.
Kim Kardashian was the victim of a terrifying crime at the hands of unknown assailants earlier this week in Paris, France.
In an official statement about the robbery investigation, Paris police confirmed that the attackers were looking for “possessions that had been seen and noticed via social media”.
