Armed robbers got into the luxury apartment of Kim Kardashian West where she was staying in Paris, tied her up with duct tape and ran away with jewelry allegedly worth more than $10 million, which also included her engagement ring.
Spokeswoman for Kardashian West said that though the reality show star was “badly shaken” luckily she wasn’t physically harmed. Reportedly after the incident she immediately flew back to the US.
“[Kanye] is furious. He feels like she was terrorised. It’s not just that she was robbed; it’s that she was put into a position where she begged for her life, thought she was going to be raped. She was brutalised and manhandled.”
Sources close to the rapper says for the first time in his life Kanye felt “helpless”.
According to initial reports, the intruders dressed as police officers locked Kim in a bathroom while they pilfered through her jewelry box with valuables worth $6.7 million, a ring worth $4.5 million and two personal smart phones.
It is thought 2 of the 5 masked men entered the residence after they handcuffed the concierge and held him at gunpoint at the luxury residence.
She reportedly believed she was safe in the apartment, and had sent her main bodyguard Pascal Duvier out to a nightclub with sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.
While it is still unknown to the public if the two Kardashian West children were with her when the robbery happened, when her husband Kanye West was notified about the incident he immediately called a halt to his concert at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York apologizing to the audience with the following statement “I’m sorry, family emergency, I have to stop the show”.
