Kim Kardashian West was held at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel Sunday night but was not harmed during the robbery, according to police officials.
Officials told the Associated Press that the armed assailants, who are still at large, tied Kardashian West up and locked her in a bathroom during the robbery. The thieves left with more than $10 million of jewelry, police officials told the wire service. The list of taken items includes a jewelry box containing valuables worth 6 million euros ($6.7 million) as well as a ring worth 4 million euros ($4.5 million), according to the AP. The Paris prosecutor’s office also told the AP that while five suspects were involved, only two forced their way into Kardashian’s residence.
The assailants gained access to the building after a concierge let them in, according to police statements to the AP. The concierge, handcuffed and held at gunpoint, led them to Kardashian West’s room.
A statement from a source familiar with the situation but unauthorized to speak publicly said two armed men, dressed up as police officers and wearing masks, entered her hotel room and held her up. The incident left the reality-TV star “badly shaken but physically unharmed,” according to the statement.
It is unclear whether Kardashian West’s two young children, North, 3, and Saint, almost 10 months, were with her during the robbery. Police told AP that the star’s family was put under protection.
Kardashian West was in Paris to attend Paris Fashion Week with several members of the Kardashian family. The star has attended numerous designer shows over the past week including Balenciaga and Balmain.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians star had another rough encounter earlier in the week. Notorious celebrity harasser Vitalii Sediuk (who also reportedly groped model Gigi Hadid in Milan the week prior) ran past a group of fans and stuck out his neck to kiss her buttocks. Kardashian West’s bodyguard Pascal Duvier intervened.
News of the robbery spread after Kardashian West’s husband, Kanye West, stopped a performance at The Meadows Music and Arts Festival at Citi Filed in Queens, New York on Sunday night.
