After attending the Givenchy Fashion Show reception in Paris, France, on Sunday, Oct. 3, Kim Kardashian West posed for some pictures and got into a “paparazzi proof” van. She traveled with her sister and her bodyguard back to her apartment inside a private exclusive mansion.
About two and a half hours later, five men (allegedly) dressed as police entered the luxurious private mansion, at least one armed with a handgun. With low security around the mansion, the men were able to tie up the concierge’s hands and force their way into Kardashian West’s apartment.
Held at gunpoint, Kardashian West was forced into the bathroom and was tied up with her mouth gagged. The men then searched around her apartment finding cellphones, a ring worth around $4.49 million, and a jewelry box with an overall worth of $5.6 million.
Kardashian West’s spokesperson said she was, “badly shaken but physically unharmed.” Her kids were not in the apartment when the incident occurred, and her husband, Kanye West, left abruptly in the middle of his concert when he heard the news. He has now announced that he will be rescheduling two upcoming shows in Philadelphia and Detroit to stay with his wife after her scary experience. She was in Paris with sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, who were at a nightclub that night, and her Mom, Kris Jenner, who was staying in a nearby hotel.
The men who robbed Kardashian West still have not been found, but Paris police keep reassuring everyone that this robbery is a rare occasion, and they are doing everything they can to find them.
