Kim Kardashian robbed at gunpoint by fake police at Paris fashion week

Kim Kardashian: Star 'badly shaken but physically unharmed' after robbery

Kim Kardashian-West

Monday, October 3, 2016

Kim Kardashian was yesterday held up at gunpoint in a Paris hotel room during fashion week by masked men dressed as police officers.

A police official in the French capital confirmed there was a robbery involving the reality star, and that an investigation was under way. The perpetrators reportedly stole jewellery worth several million dollars.

It is unclear if Kardashian's two children with rapper Kanye West, three-year-old daughter North and 10-month-old son Saint, were present in the hotel room.

Her spokeswoman said the reality TV star "is badly shaken but physically unharmed" after her ordeal last night, but offered no other details.

West was performing at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York at the time of the robbery. He abruptly ended his set on Sunday night, telling his fans he had a family emergency.

The couple routinely go to Paris, having spent the weekend there before marrying in Florence in May 2014.
