Kim Kardashian held at gunpoint, tied up

Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint in her Paris luxury apartment in the early hours of the morning. Reuters reports that masked men put a gun to Kardashian’s temple, left her tied up in the bathroom of her luxury apartment in Paris and stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry.

The thieves were reportedly dressed like police officers and wearing ski masks. “The Paris apartment block is a discreet building behind the city’s Madeleine church, with several secret entrances, often frequented by movie and music stars who pay up to 15,000 euros a night,” reports Reuters.

Kardashian was in Paris with her mom and sisters Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian attending fashion week. The thieves made away with $10 million dollars in jewelry. She was unharmed.

When husband Kanye West heard of the incident, he abruptly ended a show in NYC.

Most people can’t relate to traveling with $10M dollars in jewelry and may not have too much sympathy for losing that kind of thing. But it’s good to see that the overwhelming reaction to the incident is that no one deserves to go through something like this. She’s a mom. She’s a sister. She’s a daughter. She’s a wife. She’s a human being.

A spokesperson for the family told CNN Kardashian is “badly shaken but physically unharmed.” Kardashian boarded a plane immediately after the incident and left France.
