Kim Kardashian has fled France on a private jet after masked men put a gun to her temple, left her tied up in the bathroom of her luxury residence in Paris and stole millions of dollars’ worth of jewelry in the early hours of Monday.
The reality star, 35, was robbed by five armed men wearing ski masks and clothes with police markings. At around 3am, the robbers entered the building after the concierge let them in. Handcuffed and at gunpoint, he then led them to the starlet’s flat. Kim reportedly ‘begged for her life’ and told the gunmen she had children at home when two of them entered her room and held the gun to her head.
It is reported that the men stole a jewelry box worth €6 million ($6.7 million) and a ring worth €4 million ($4.5 million), prompting fears that the valuables were personal ones, and not just jewelry Kim was borrowing for fashion week.
Kim also lost two of her prized smart phones – ones that are likely to contain a great deal of personal information.
In the star’s last Snapchat post before she was robbed, she is seen wearing the eye-catching 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring that was gifted to her from Kanye West.
The rock is the second one her husband has given her after the original engagement band he proposed with back in 2013. The huge rock features a 20-carat emerald-cut center stone and may well be the ring worth $4.5 million that police said has been taken.
In her social media posts from Paris Fashion Week, Kim can be seen wearing an assortment of dazzling jewels, including her diamond grill by Dolly Cohen.
The mother-of-two, who is in the city for Paris Fashion Week, is ‘badly shaken but physically unharmed’, a spokesperson told the Daily Mail.
The incident comes just five days after Kim praised her personal bodyguard Pascal Duvier as ‘the best in town’ after he saved her from being tackled by serial prankster Vitalii Sediuk. However, Pascal was pictured out with Kourtney Kardashian on Sunday night, suggesting he was not with Kim when the raid took place.
Husband Kanye West was told of the raid halfway through a headline performance at the Meadow Music and Art Festival, New York, and immediately cancelled the set. Their daughter, North, three, and 10-month-old son Saint, are not believed to have been in the room at the time.
