Kim Kardashian West was held at gunpoint in Paris and robbed of millions
It has been reported that Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint at a luxury residence in Paris by at least two men dressed as police officers.
Police sources told the Associated Press news agency that they were seeking five assailants, two of whom had forced their way into the house. According to reports, the concierge led the gunmen to the Paris residence where they tied Kardashian West up in the bathroom.
The police spoke out about the incident, saying: “The loss amounts to several million euros, mostly jewellery. The total amount is still being evaluated.” It has been said that a box containing jewellery worth up to €6 million was among items taken.
Kardashian West has now left France, flying out of a Paris airport aboard a private jet and a spokeswoman for the reality TV star has described her as “badly shaken but physically unharmed”.
Kardashian West’s husband, Kanye West, was on stage at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York at the time of the robbery and quickly ended his performance, announcing to fans: “I’m sorry, family emergency. I have to stop the show.”
James Corden, TV presenter and actor, criticised people who were making light of the incident. He tweeted: “People making jokes about Kim Kardashian tonight would do well to remember that she’s a mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend. Be nice or shut up.”
