Nearly $11 million worth of jewelry was taken from Kim Kardashian’s hotel room, while she was locked and tied up in the bathroom.
It’s unclear which of Kim’s jewelry was taken at this time.
Two masked men, dressed as police officers not only held Kim Kardashian at gunpoint and at her hotel in Paris, they also took a great deal of expensive jewellery, including a jewellery box worth $6.7 million and a ring worth $4.5 million, police said, according to Daily Mail.
It has not yet been confirmed if the ring taken was in fact, one of the two that she has received from Kanye West. While Kim’s original Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring was worth around $1.6 million, the second diamond that Kanye gave his wife — a 20-carat emerald-cut ring — was reportedly worth around $4 million.
When leaving Paris the following morning, she was spotted on a private plane, not wearing a ring. In her last snapchat taken before the robbery, she was wearing it.
The men who robbed her were part of a “highly organized” group, police confirmed. They entered the apartment by reportedly tying up and gagging the concierge at the front desk and putting him inside a stairwell cupboard. There were five men who entered the building, and they tied up a terrified Kim and put her in the bathroom of her room.
My, (oh, my) why do they take such a load of expensive jewellery with sentimental value when they go on tour! Don’t they feel safe locking them up at home?
Kanye was performing a concert in Queens at the time the news broke; he stopped the show in the middle of performing “Heartless,” and walked off stage. The venue later tweeted to inform fans he had a “family emergency.”
