Here’s What We Know About Kim Kardashian’s Robbery In Paris

Late Sunday night, news broke that Kim Kardashian was the victim of an armed robbery in her Paris hotel. The wife and mother was in the City of Lights for Paris Fashion Week along with sisters Kourtney and Kendall and mother Kris.

People began to suspect something was up in the West/Kardashian family when Kanye, who was in the middle of his set at The Meadows Music and Arts Festival, abruptly left telling the crowd he had a family emergency.

Shortly thereafter, the news spread on social media about Kim being held at gunpoint in her hotel room by men posing as policemen.

TMZ reports five men dressed as officers entered l’Hotel de Pourtalès, and after threatening the concierge at gunpoint, they gained access to the two apartments Kardashian was staying in. She was “bound and gagged” and “begged them to spare her life, telling them she had babies at home.”

Kim is reportedly “unharmed” but “badly shaken.” In the robbery, over $10 million in jewelry was stolen, which included the new engagement ring her husband, Kanye, got her a month ago. Both of her cellphones were also taken.

E! News says Kim is currently on her way home and her mother Kris told them, “Kim will be OK.”

Thankfully, Kim and Kanye’s two kids, North and Saint, were not in Paris.
