Kim Kardashian robbed at gunpoint, tied up

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian in Paris last week was robbed by five armed men dressed as police officers early this morning in Paris.

At approximately 3 a.m. this morning, after entering the swanky Hotel de Pourtalès on rue Tronchet, the robbers, who were wearing masks, handcuffed the concierge and forced him to show them which part of the building Kardashian was in.

They then forced their way into her private residence, where two of the assailants tied the reality star while holding a gun to her head, then locked her in the bathroom.

Kardashian, 35, was in Paris for fashion week. Her spokeswoman says she is “badly shaken but physically unharmed.”

The thieves made off on bicycles with $14.7 million in jewelry, including her engagement ring.

She is pictured at left in Paris yesterday (Oct. 2), leaving the offices of Mugler Haute Couture Fashion House.

Her husband, Kanye West, was in New York at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival performing a concert when he received news of the robbery.

Just 45 minutes into the show, he abruptly ended his concert, telling the confused and angry fans, “I’m sorry, I have a family emergency, I have to stop the show.” See the video below. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    Super smart to carry around $14.7 million worth of jewelry.

    They should have kidnapped her and dumped her body. Now that would be news.

    Pretty please let this be a Lochte type incident and it’s all a complete fabricaion or inside job and people can finally dislike the West/Kardashian family and get them out of the limelight.

    Andrea…you need to take a good, hard look at yourself. Wishing that kind of harm on a perfect stranger is despicable. Do you want KARMA to come looking for you!!!

    Yes Colleen I agree…very nasty comment. Personally I have absolutely no time for the Kardashian family, but that must have been a terrifying incident. I feel bad for her.

    Bound, gagged and robbed! Too good to be true. If only the rest of the Kardashian clan (Kanye included) were assaulted.

    The fact that she had almost $15 million in jewellery on her while travelling is obscene. I hope they never catch the robbers.
