New details are coming out this morning regarding Kim Kardashian being held at gunpoint in Paris. First, a robbery did occur – to the tune of $10 million! Second, Kim was tied up and locked in the bathroom, but left unharmed.
According to the latest reports, Kim was staying at her swanky and private Paris apartment. Five masked, armed men (who were dressed as cops) broke into her apartment around 3 a.m. Paris time and held a gun to her temple. She was then tied up and locked in the bathroom while they swiped her $4.5 million dollar ring and a jewelry box worth over $5 million dollars. They also grabbed two cell phones from the room.
Police say that the night guard was found in a stairwell, with his hands and feet bound. The five armed robbers got away on bicycles.
After telling police her side of what happened, Kim, who had been in Paris to film the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and to attend Fashion Week, hopped a flight back to the U.S. immediately.
According to Reuters, there have been quite a few robberies of high-end jewelry stores in Paris over the past few months.
Update: E! News reports that Kim was begging the robbers for her life. A source claims, “She begged for them to let her live and [said] she has babies at home. Then they wrapped her mouth in tape and put her in the bathtub. She thought they were for sure going to kill her.” Then Kim “broke out of her bindings and got out.”
The ring that was stolen sounds like the new, insanely gigantic diamond that Kanye bought for Kim recently. She showed it off on Instagram 3 days ago. (photo below)
TELL US – WILL THIS TEACH KIM TO SHUT UP ABOUT THE VALUE OF HER BLING? DO YOU THINK ANY OF THIS WILL BE AIRED ON KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS? DO YOU THINK THE CELL PHONE INFORMATION IS POTENTIALLY WORTH MORE THAN THE JEWELRY?
