Kim Kardashian robbed at gunpoint Monday morning in Paris, France.
Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris residence early Monday morning. Kardashian begged for her life, stating she had children at home when the men broke into her room and held a gun to her head.
The 35-year-old reality star was gagged and bound and thrown into a bathtub by five armed men wearing ski masks and police outfits. The masked men stole millions of dollars of jewelry as well as her two smart phones which were likely to contain a lot of personal information.
The robbers were able to gain access to the star’s luxury suite by threatening the door man who they eventually tied up and threw into a cabinet. Kim’s bodyguard, Pascal, was with reportedly with Kourtney Kardashian on the night of the burglary and was not present at the time of the robbery.
Kim’s husband, Kanye West was, performing at the Meadow Music and Art Festival in New York at the time. He stopped the show half way through his performance and ran off stage saying there was a family emergency.
After speaking with the police, Kim hurried out of Paris on a private jet back to New York. While very shaken from the incident, Kim was not harmed during the robbery. It is reported that the thieves stole over $10 million in jewelry, including a $6 million dollar jewelry box and a $4.5 million ring.
Kim was in Paris, France for New York Fashion Week with Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner and was said to have just gotten back from dinner before the incident. As soon as Kendall heard about the incident she rushed to Kim’s side to comfort her.
The star has arrived back in New York and is safe with her family. She was first seen Monday morning surrounded by body guards and the New York Police Department. Thankfully, she is okay and Paris police are working on catching the masked robbers.
