Kim Kar­dashian ‘robbed of mil­lions’ in Paris

The Sun (Malaysia) - - FRONT PAGE -

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
