Kim Kardashian West Bound, Gagged and Robbed of Nearly $10 Million in Jewelry
A dream trip to France turned into a nightmare for Kim Kardashian West after the reality TV star was held up at gunpoint and robbed by five masked men dressed as police, authorities said.
Kardashian West was staying at a private mansion in Paris when she was robbed of more than $10 million in jewelry, including her 15-carat diamond engagement ring.
Reports say the concierge at the hotel was handcuffed and ordered to lead the robbers to Kardashian-West’s room.
Once inside, they reportedly held a gun to her head, but Kardashian West begged them to spare her life, saying she has two children.
She was bound and gagged before being tied up and locked in a bathroom during the ordeal.
The robbers reportedly escaped on bikes.
She was “badly shaken but physically unharmed,” a spokeswoman for Kardashian West said.
Kardashian West was in France for Paris Fashion Week, along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.
Her family rushed to her side, including her husband Kanye West, who cut short a concert at Citi Field in Queens, New York, when he learned what happened.
“Due to a family emergency, Kanye West was forced to end his performance towards the end of his set. We appreciate the great show he put on for fans to close out the inaugural Meadows Festival. Our thoughts are with West and his family,” a statement from festival organizers said.
Kardashian West left Paris on a private jet after speaking to police.
She's believed to be flying back to Los Angeles.
