Update on Kardashian Robbery

840_kim_611275008We learned yesterday that Kim was robbed at gunpoint at her Parisian hotel Hotel de Pourtalès and the robbers made off with almost $20 million worth of her jewelry and belongings. More details of the robbery have been emerging over the last 24 hours and the story keeps getting more and more mysterious. Although the police don’t have any leads yet, they think it is an inside job.

TMZ reported that the police do not think it is a coincidence that Kim was without her bodyguard at the exact time of the robbery. They think the robbers were somehow tipped off to when Kim would be alone in her room. There was a small window of time that Kim was by herself and that is when the robbers broke in. She had friends over and her bodyguard was out guarding Kendall and Kylie at a local nightclub. Once Kim’s friends left the hotel, that is when the robbery went down.

The police and the Kardashian’s do not think that the bodyguard was in on the robbery. It has been suggested but both the police and Kim do no think he had anything to do with it. During the robbery, it was revealed that the robbers approached the concierge at the hotel with their guns drawn and told him to take them up to Kim’s suite. Once the robbers got what they wanted, they took the concierge back downstairs.

Right now, the list of people that could have tipped off the robbers is pretty extensive. The Paris police are in the process of checking phone records of people that were in the area at the time of robbery.

kim-kourtney-bowl-630x500Kim Kardashian was robbed at gun point at her hotel in Paris on Sunday night. The robbers were dressed as police officers and gained access to her room and held her up at gunpoint. According to multiple reports, five men caught Kim by surprise and were able to steal $10 million worth of her belongings.

Kim’s official spokesperson issued the following statement for the reality star, “Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening,” the statement read, “by two armed masked men dressed as police officers. She is badly shaken but physically unharmed.”

Kanye was performing at the Meadows Festival in New York when he abruptly left the show. During his set, a man walked onto the stage to let the crowd know that Kanye would not be coming back due to a family emergency. The crowd was confused because there was no further explanation beyond that.

Kim was attending Paris Fashion Week to see her sister Kendall walk the official Givenchy show when the robbers barged into her room at 3:00am in the morning. Two were dressed as police officers and once they gained entry, three more followed wearing ski masks. The men bound her feet and hands with tape and then locked her in the bathroom. The robbers proceeded to steal approximately $10.7 million in jewelry: a jewelry box containing about $6.7 million in valuables, and a ring worth $4 million by itself. The robbers also took Kim’s phone and 1,000 in euro.

After she gave her statement to the police, she boarded a private jet and immediately headed home.
