Kim Kardashian West held at gunpoint in Paris


Star Kim Kardashian West has left France after being held at gunpoint and robbed by men dressed as police officers in a private apartment in Paris, French officials said.

A spokeswoman for Kardashian West said the celebrity was "badly shaken but physically unharmed" following the incident, which took place early Monday morning local time.

Kardashian was staying at an apartment inside a luxury private mansion that can be rented out for days or weeks at a time.

The French Interior Ministry said five men threatened the mansion concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open the private apartment.


Two of the men were able to gain entry to Kardashian West's room, according to the Paris prosecutor's office, and a gun was held to her head. A source familiar with the situation told CNN that Kardashian's two children, North West and Saint West, "were not present" at the time of the incident.

She was locked in a bathroom while the men took two cell phones and jewelry worth millions of dollars, the Interior Ministry said.


The prosecutor's office said a ring worth an estimated 4 million euros ($4.49M) and other jewelry worth about 5 million euros ($5.6M) were among the items stolen.

Kardashian West was in France for Paris Fashion Week, along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. She was staying at a private mansion in Paris, according to CNN affiliate BFM TV.

The French Interior Ministry said no one was hurt during the incident and that the men did not fire their weapons.

Kardashian West left France later Monday after speaking with police, an Interior Ministry representative told CNN. 



By 2:30 a.m. Paris time, just minutes before the robbery, she was back at her hotel room and Facetiming with brother Rob Kardashian and his fiancĂ©e Blac Chyna to wish them congratulations at their baby shower, according to her Snapchat.
