Five masked robbers, dressed as policemen, held the reality star at gunpoint, in her hotel room in Paris. The robbers left her tied up in the bathroom and left with more than 10 million dollars in jewelry. A spokesman said that she was “badly shaken” but unhurt.
Kim was apparently lying in her bed with only her robe. Then she heard boots coming up the stairs of her apartment in Hotel de Pourtalès. She knew something was wrong and tried to call her bodyguard. Before she could call him, one of the man took her phone from her hands. They tied her hands with plastic handcuffs and duct taped her. One of the man grabbed her ankles and Kim thought she was about to be raped. They duct taped her ankles and put her in the bathtub. She then started begging them not to kill her because she had babies. She then said that she had money and that they can take whatever they wanted.
Kim told the police the robbers did not speak English and just spoke French. The only thing she understood is when the robbers were saying “ring, ring”. She knew that they wanted her new ring from Kanye and told them were it was. Kim cried and begged and at this point the robbers duct taped her mouth to shut up.
Allegedly, Simone, a friend of Kim’s, was in the apartment sleeping in the downstairs bedroom. She heard the commotion and locked herself in the bathroom. She then called the bodyguard, Pascal, and Kourtney telling them to hurry back because something was wrong.
When Pascal got back to the apartment the robbers had left. The whole incident apparently took 6 minutes.
