Reality star Kim Kardashian West was held and robbed at gunpoint at luxury apartment in Paris by five men disguised as police officers.
According to the police, the armed men stole a jewelry box with valuables worth €6m and a ring valued at €4m. The police added that the men escaped on bikes.
Mrs West’s publicist has released a statement saying the TV star was ”badly shaken but physically unharmed” after the masked men tied her up in the flat’s bathroom before fleeing the scene.
Reports in France say that her bodyguard was also handcuffed during the incident.
Kim is in Paris to attend the city’s fashion week along with some family members.
Earlier on Sunday, Kim first attended the Balenciaga show before being pictured front row at the Givenchy fashion show.
She sat alongside her mother and sister who came to show support to Kendall who was modeling in that presentation.
She later made her way to a private dinner hosted by the fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa and Surface magazine.
The TV star left the dinner at around midnight before the incident took place at about 03:00 Paris time.
Meanwhile, Kim’s husband, Kanye West was on stage at the Meadows music and arts festival in New York. The rapper abruptly ended his performance telling fans ”I’m sorry, family emergency. I have to stop the show”.
In a separate incident in Paris on Wednesday, Kim Kardashian West was almost tackled by a man who wanted to kiss her bottom.
The assailant identified as Vitalii Sediuk, a self-described ”entertainment Hollywood reporter” who has ambushed several other celebrities, was stopped by her bodyguards.
Kim Kardashian and her family have remained uncharacteristically silent on social media about the incident as police investigations continue.
