Kim Kardashian robbed of millions in jewelry by masked Paris gunmen, police say


Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint of more than $10 million worth of jewelry inside a private Paris residence Sunday night, police said.
A spokeswoman for the reality TV star said Kardashian was "badly shaken but physically unharmed" after men disguised as police officers also tied her up in the flat’s bathroom before fleeing the scene.


Paris police said five armed, masked men, who were still at large, stole a box containing valuables worth $6.7 million as well as a ring worth more than $4 million. The two officials confirmed Kardashian escaped uninjured and that an investigation was underway.
Police said the robbers tied up Kardashian and locked her in the bathroom before escaping on bikes.
Her husband Kanye West was performing at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York City at the time and abruptly ended the concert, telling his fans that he had to deal with a “family emergency.”
"I'm sorry, family emergency I have to stop the show," West told the audience.
Founders Entertainment, which promoted the festival, released a statement to Billboard, saying “"Due to a family emergency, Kanye West was forced to end his performance towards the end of his set. We appreciate the great show he put on for fans to close out the inaugural Meadows Festival. Our thoughts are with West and his family."
Paris has been a special place for the Hollywood power couple, who spent the weekend there before marrying in Florence in May of 2014.
Kardashian stayed at the residence near Paris' Madeleine church. Police said the thieves entered the building after the concierge let them in. Handcuffed and at gunpoint, he then led them to the starlet's flat.
It's unclear whether the couple's two children, 3-year-old daughter North and 10-month-old son Saint, were with Kardashian when the robbery happened. Police said the actress' family was placed under police protection at the George V hotel after the incident.
Kardashian was also ambushed last week by a serial celebrity accoster who attempted to assault her as she was entering a restaurant. She was also attacked outside of a Paris fashion week show in 2014. She wasn't hurt in either incident.
