In the early hours of Sunday morning, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in her hotel room in the five-star Hotel Particulier Pourtales, Paris.
When we reported on the incident yesterday, details about the event were still murky, but as time has passed so more details have emerged.
You can read about that HERE, as well as watch a video of Kanye West leaving a show after hearing the news.
Apparently, five English-speaking men with heavy accents robbed Kim Kardashian. It is suspected that they had tracked her due to her obsession with updating social media, and police suspect they are a part of the Pink Panther gang who have been linked to some of the most brazen diamond heists worth £280 million.
According to TMZ sources, here’s how the robbery went down:
Kim was lying in bed with only her robe on when she heard boots pounding up the stairs of her 2 story apartment.
We’re told Kim saw at least one masked man and another wearing a police hat through a sliding glass door. She knew something was amiss, so she rolled off the bed and tried dialling her bodyguard on her cell phone.
Before she could finish dialling one of the men yanked the phone out of her hands. They zip tied her hands with plastic handcuffs and duct taped her to make it more secure. We’re told one of the men grabbed her by the ankles … Kim told cops at that point she believed she was about to be raped.
The robbers duct taped her ankles, picked her up and put her in the bathtub. She then started screaming … begging them not to kill her because she had babies. She went on to say she had money and they could take whatever they wanted.
The Daily Mail has received information from the French police who suspect the heist was planned, tipped off from the inside:
French police suspect that the five alleged robbers had some contact with her security and were tipped off about her procedures.
They knew there was no security [with her inside her apartment that night]. All they had to do was go in, make contact with someone inside the hotel. They have issues with story of more than one worker at the hotel. They are also talking to bodyguards who worked with her earlier in the week.
They took a jewellery box worth R91 million, her 15-carat diamond engagement ring (below) and two smartphones. It is now feared that much of Kim’s personal information will be available to them – and just imagine the amount of naked and unflattering selfies on there.
While you might laugh it off because it’s just Kim Kardashian, it’s still a very shitty thing to happen.
