Over the last couple of days, we’ve seen Kim Kardashian front and centre at most of the major fashion shows in Paris for fashion week. The reality star has kept her vast amount of social media followers up to date on her whereabouts and the different glamorous events she has attended, by continuously updating her social media accounts, and boy have we been envious! Unfortunately, Kim’s trip to Paris took a rather nasty turn when she was robbed at gun point at her apartment yesterday evening.
According to CNN, five men, disguised as policemen, stormed the private apartment building where Kim had been staying during her trip, threatening the concierge in the building with a gun, and forcing him to open Kim’s apartment. Two of the men were able to get into Kim’s apartment ,where Kim was bound and gagged at gunpoint. TMZ reports that Kim ‘begged them to spare her life, telling them she had babies at home.’ Sources tell TMZ that Kim’s friend Simone, who was also staying at the apartment, heard all of the commotion and locked herself inside the bathroom and called Kim’s bodyguard, Pascal, and Kourtney Kardashian for help. Pascal allegedly got back to the apartment just two minutes after the robbers had left.
Although thankfully, no further harm was inflicted on Kim, over $10 million dollars in jewellery was stolen from her, including her new engagement ring that her husband Kanye West had recently bought her.
Kim left Paris immediately after giving her statement to the police, and is now with her husband, Kanye West, in New York. Kanye found out about the incident during his concert last night and abruptly left the stage in the middle of his performance due to ‘an unexpected family emergency.’ Watch the moment when Kanye found out below.
The rapper picked his wife from the airport this morning and they were seen entering their New York apartment earlier on today. Peep the presidential style security detail escorting them into their apartment below.
What an awful situation. Wishing Kim all the very best and we will keep you updated as the story develops.
