Kardashian West robbed at gunpoint in Paris
A spokeswoman for Kardashian West said the reality TV star was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” after masked men dressed as police officers also tied her up in the flat’s bathroom before fleeing the scene.
Paris police official said five armed, masked men, who were still at large, stole a jewelry box containing valuables worth 6 million euros ($6.7 million) as well as a ring worth 4 million euros.
The two officials confirmed Kardashian West escaped uninjured and that an investigation was underway. They were not authorized to be publicly named speaking about ongoing investigations.
Police said the robbers tied up Kardashian West and locked her in the bathroom before escaping on bikes.
Kanye West was performing at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York at the time. He abruptly ended his set Sunday night after telling his fans he had a family emergency.
“I’m sorry, family emergency I have to stop the show,’’ West told the audience.
Kardashian West has been in Paris for fashion week. She attended the Givenchy show Sunday evening.
She was also ambushed last week by a serial celebrity accoster who attempted to assault her as she was entering a restaurant. Kardashian West was also attacked outside of a Paris fashion week show in 2014. AP
