Kim Kardashian robbed by masked men dressed as police in Paris
The 35 years old reality TV star and socialite Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint at her Paris hotel room early Monday morning. Her spokesperson Ina Treciokas told the media: ‘Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening by two armed masked men dressed as police officers. She is badly shaken but physically unharmed.’
It is being reported that the event took place between the hours of 3 to 4 am (CET) on Monday morning at The Ritz Hotel. It is also being reported that millions of dollars in jewellery have been stolen as she was staying. Several details remain unclear about the incident including if anything was taken from her in the attack and how (or even if) it was stopped by security.
It has also being confirmed by a Paris police official to the Associated Press that there was a robbery involving Kardashian but she was unharmed, and an investigation was underway.
The official was not authorized to be publicly named speaking about ongoing investigations.
Her sisters Kourtney and Kendall are staying at The Peninsula Hotel in the city but a spokesperson for the hotel said they were ‘not aware of any of it’s guests being attacked in our hotel.‘ Her children – three-year-old North and nine-month-old son Saint – were not involved in the incident.
Shortly after the incident, Kim’s husband Kanye West ended his concert at Meadows Festival in Queens, New York on Sunday due to a ‘family emergency’. The 39-year-old rapper shocked fans as he abruptly cut his set short and walked off-stage.
