Kim Kardashian ‘robbed of millions’ in Paris
PARIS: US reality television star Kim Kardashian ( pix) was robbed at gunpoint at a hotel here by assailants disguised as police who made off with millions, mainly in jewellery.
Paris police said the loss amounted to “several million euros, mostly jewellery,” adding that they were still assessing the total amount stolen.
A spokesman for the celebrity said she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” after the assault, which occurred late on Sunday.
The spokesman said “two armed masked men dressed as police officers” entered Kardashian’s hotel room and held her up at gunpoint.
On hearing the news, Kardashian’s husband, rapper Kanye West, abruptly ended a festival appearance in New York citing a “family emergency”.
Kardashian, one of the most identifiable US celebrities, has been appearing prominently at Paris fashion week events.
The 35-year-old starlet made headlines for appearing without makeup, a bare look recently adopted by singer Alicia Keys at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Kardashian, who has two children with West, has been a fixture of US celebrity news for more than a decade after an infamous leaked sex tape and the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. – AFP
