This is so terrifying.
Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint inside of her Paris hotel room, E! News has confirmed. Kim’s spokesman released this statement to the celebrity news outlet:
“Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers. She is badly shaken but physically unharmed.”
We are so thankful that the frightening attack did not take a violent turn and that Kim was able to walk away safely. Even Kim’s mother, Kris Kardashian, let E! News know that “She will be ok.”
Earlier this evening, Kanye West suddenly left the stage during his show at the Meadows Music & Arts Festival in New York while in the middle of performing “Heartless.” A witness reports that the rapper learned of a “family emergency” and immediately walked off of the stage.
Just earlier today, Kim Kardashian was seen at the Balenciaga fashion show sans makeup and sans pants.
Update: New details about the incident emerged overnight and it’s even scarier than we originally thought. Two armed men masked as police officers snuck into Kardashian’s private apartment in Paris this weekend after five men threatened a concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open the door for them. The Paris Prosecutor’s office confirmed that only two of the men gained entry.
Kardashian’s rep confirmed that she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed.” One of her rings, worth an estimated $4.49 million, and a jewelry box, worth an estimated $5.6 million, were stolen.
Kardashian was reportedly gagged and bound at her hands and feet, then handcuffed and held at gunpoint. A source says she was begging the men to let her live, saying she had babies at home. Her mouth was then covered with tape and they carried her to the bathtub. Luckily she was able to break free after they left.
Previous reporting said the incident happened inside of a hotel room, but she was actually staying at an apartment.
