During the jewellery heist, Kim was placed into the bath tub and bound with tape. According to reports, the armed men, who were disguised as policemen, took off with around $10 million worth of jewels. They managed to force their way into Kim’s apartment after handcuffing the concierge.
Sources say one of the items taken was her wedding ring worth $4 million, and also a jewellery box filled with precious gems. During the horrific incident, Kim is said to have begged for her life, telling the robbers about her children at home. A source explained that the reality star was certain she would be killed:
“She begged for them to let her live and [said] she has babies at home. Then they wrapped her mouth in tape and put her in the bathtub. She thought they were for sure going to kill her.”
Kim’s security guard was not with her at the time of the incident and was instead accompanying her sisters Kendall and Kourtney on a night out 2 miles away. The star has since quickly fled Paris after she gave French police a statement. A source close to Kim says she is now doing fine and was not physically harmed:
“She is badly shaken but physically unharmed.”
While the incident was taking place, Kim’s husband Kanye West was performing a show in New York City but abruptly stopped the concert when he heard of the news, telling the crowd that there was a “family emergency” and walking off stage. Kanye is now rescheduling his tour dates to spend time with Kim following the incident.
