Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint and robbed of millions in jewels in her residence in Paris where she came to attend the Paris Fashion Week
Kim Kardashian faced an unwanted scandal just this Monday morning and she is shook up. Reportedly, the reality TV star was in Paris for the Paris Fashion Week which is currently underway. She was staying at the remote L’hôtel de Pourtalès on Rue Tronchet which is just a few steps from the famed Madeleine church.
The remote hotel houses nine luxury apartments that the famous and well-heeled often rent to find refuge from the paparazzi. That is perhaps why Kim might have been staying at the hotel. Things took a turn for the worst when five armed men, posing as police officers came out to the hotel and held the security guard at gun point and made him give them access to the apartments.
The robbers entered Kim’s apartment and she was held at gun point and tied and locked in the bathroom by two of the men while they robbed all of Kim’s jewelry. They then left on motorcycles and although the police was contacted and came on scene as soon as they could, the robbers were already long gone. Kim was rescued from her distress and she was a little shaken up. Sources close to her confirmed that she was unharmed in the whole robbery.
Kim co-operated with the French police and after giving her statement, she left Paris on a private jet in the early hours Monday morning from Le Bourget Airport. The police are still estimating the worth of the jewelry that was stolen and according to an estimate, the robbers made away with almost $10 million in loot.
The news also hit the U.S. pretty hard. Kanye was performing at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York City on Sunday night when he got the news by one of his managers. He was performing ‘Heartless’ and had to leave the show. He apologized to the crowd and told them that he had to go because of a family emergency.
