No one is safe in these STREETS! Kim Kardashian has fled France on a private jet after being robbed at gunpoint at a Paris apartment early on Monday morning.
The reality star, 35, had millions of dollars worth of jewellery stolen by five armed masked men dressed as police officers. The men stole a jewelry box worth ($6.7 million) and a ring worth ($4.5 million), prompting fears that the valuables were personal ones, and not just jewellery Ms Kardashian was borrowing for fashion week. An insider said the total worth could be as high as $16 million.
Kim also lost two of her prized smart phones – ones that are likely to contain a great deal of personal information.
At around 2.30am, the robbers entered the building after the concierge let them in. Handcuffed and at gunpoint, he then led them to the Kim's apartment. They entered Kim's room, threatened her with a weapon, tied her up and locked her in the bathroom.
The mother-of-two, who is in the city for Paris Fashion Week, is 'badly shaken but physically unharmed',
The incident comes just five days after Kim praised her personal bodyguard Pascal Duvier as 'the best in town' after he saved her from being tackled by serial prankster Vitalii Sediuk. However, Pascal was pictured out with Kourtney Kardashian on Sunday night, indicating he was not with Kim when the raid took place.
Husband Kanye West was told of the raid halfway through a headline performance at the Meadow Music and Art Festival, New York, and immediately cancelled the set. Their daughter, North, three, and 10-month-old son Saint, are not believed to have been in the room at the time. The building has ‘hidden entrances’ for stars trying to avoid the paparazzi, according to a neighbour
‘She’s very pleased to be heading back to the United State,’ said a source close to the case. ‘She has given a full statement for the police.’The actress' family was placed under police protection at the George V palace after the incident.
Kim had only just got in from dinner when the attack happened. On Sunday, she visited the Balenciaga and also the Givenchy show at Paris Fashion Week, before going for a meal with friends.
A Paris police official confirmed there was a robbery involving Kim but she was unharmed, and an investigation was underway.
The official was not authorized to be publicly named speaking about ongoing investigations.
At around 4.30am Kendall Jenner was seen leaving the apartment under police protection. Model Jasmine Sanders, Hailey Baldwin and actor Terrence J accompanied her.
