Kim Kardashian robbed at gunpoint in Paris

‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star Kim Kardashian was in Paris when she robbed at gunpoint by two assailants disguised as police, who stole millions of pounds worth of jewellery. They tied Kardashians up and locked her in the bathroom before escaping on bikes.

Kardashian’s husband, the rapper Kanye West, was on stage at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York at the time of the robbery. He abruptly ended his set, telling fans: “I’m sorry, family emergency. I have to stop the show.”

A Paris police official told the Associated Press that five armed men, who were still at large, stole a jewellery box containing valuables worth €6m (£5.2m) as well as a ring worth €4m. Police said the robbers escaped on bikes.

She was “badly shaken but physically unharmed,” the spokeswoman told The Associated Press, offering no further details.
