Kim Kardashian robbed at gunpoint by fake police in Paris hotel room
Kim Kardashian lost 10 million euros worth of jewelry after masked men posing as cops robbed her at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room.
PARIS — America’s favorite reality TV mainstay Kim Kardashian-West was the victim of an armed robbery in Paris. But while the star was unharmed physically, her bling wasn’t as lucky.
Reuters reports that Kardashian-West had been in town for Fashion Week and was in her luxurious Paris hotel room around 3 a.m. on Monday when the incident happened.
Five armed robbers wearing police uniforms had managed to gain entry into the property and held the 35-year-old star at gunpoint after reportedly handcuffing her bodyguard.
The men then proceeded to take Kardashian-West’s jewelry, making off with almost 10 million euros worth.
The star’s husband Kanye West received news about the robbery while in the middle of a concert in New York. Audience members posted videos on Twitter showing the rapper cancelling the show after citing a family emergency.
The robbery news made rounds on social media as well, and while some were worried for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, others were not so supportive.
The incident marks the second time Yeezy’s better half has received unwanted attention in the City of Lights, after celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk attempted to kiss her bottom just days before, according to CNN.
