On Monday, Kim Kardashian returned to New York City after being robbed at gunpoint early in Paris. The 35-year-old reality star reunited with husband Kanye West and her team already increased her security.
As previously reported, five masked men held her up and took $10 million worth of jewelry. According to new details, she was only wearing a robe at the time of the robbery and was dragged from her room by her ankles and feared she was going to be raped. Her hands were then zip-tied and she was placed in the bathtub. Reportedly, the men spoke only French, but she could hear them yell out “ring, ring.” Apparently, they were looking for the $5 million diamond ring Kanye recently gave her, which she recently showed it off on social media.
So, who is responsible for the robbery? It’s too soon to tell, but there is all sorts of speculation. Some suggest the robbery was an inside job, as the thieves knew she would be alone at the private residence (known to locals as the “No Address Hotel”), without security.
Another thought is that Kim’s activity on social media may have played a part. If you follow Kim on Snapchat, it’s easy to track her whereabouts in real time. Apparently, she was Snapchatting at the hotel while her main security guard, Pascal Duvier, was not with her. (See Kim with Pascal a few days earlier in Paris)
As previously mentioned, 4 days ago, Kim flaunted her Lorraine Schwartz jewels on Instagram. A security expert says,
If you’re constantly putting information out there, keeping your name in the public eye … keeping details of your wealth in the public eye, then you are … increasing the chances of a possible attack. It wasn’t something, like, they were just walking down the street and said, ‘Oh, I heard that Kardashian was here. Let’s just go in and rob her.’ This was an organized attacked based on known information.
Kim’s team has yet to comment.
