Kim Kardashian had a frightening encounter Sunday night in Paris when multiple masked men posing as police officers stormed her private apartment, tied her up at gunpoint and robbed her of millions, according to reports.
CNN reports that five men stormed the apartment where she was staying, forcing their way past the concierge. Two of the men reached her room, where they put a gun to her head, tied her up and put her in the bathtub before robbing her of her $4.5M engagement ring and millions of dollars worth of other jewelry.
E! News reports that the reality star was physically unharmed but “badly shaken” after the men held her up.
Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers,” Kim’s spokesperson shared with E! News. “She is badly shaken but physically unharmed.”
“There’s a lot happening right now to make sure everyone is safe,” a source told E! News.
TMZ reports that Kardashian begged for her life, telling the gunmen that she is a mother of two.
Kardashian has been in Paris attending the city’s fashion week with her mother, Kris Jenner, and her sister, Kourtney Kardashian. It is unclear if her children, North and Saint West, were involved in the incident.
Early Monday, she fled Paris in a private jet after giving her statement to police.
Her husband Kanye West abruptly canceled his concert Sunday, presumably after learning of the incident, telling fans he had to leave due to a family emergency.
Just days ago, Kardashian filed charges against prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who tried to kiss her on her behind as she was walking on the street.
He was taken down by her security before being released. She has since filed a restraining order against him. It’s unclear if the incidents are related in any way.
