New details about Kim Kardashian’s scary Paris robbery have emerged. A Paris-based source reveals exclusively to Us Weekly that one of the suspects asked the concierge “Where is the wife of the rapper?” before confronting the reality star in her residence and stealing more than $10 million of jewelry from her at the Hôtel de Pourtalès.
Paris police officials tell Us that Kardashian, 35, and the unnamed concierge have given testimony to authorities about the heist. The Selfish author believes that she was robbed by five white, middle-aged men who are most likely French nationals and experienced criminals.
“There have been no arrests, but we are slowly piecing together profiles of those involved in this crime,” a source close to the investigation tells Us. “What we have been told so far is that they were in their forties or fifties, and were of European appearance.”
As previously reported, the assailants tied up, gagged and then carried Kardashian into a marble bathtub before ransacking the place around 2:25 a.m. on Monday. The expensive jewels that were taken were “easily on display on a bedside table,” the insider adds.
The group of men then escaped on bicycles and are still at large. “[They] only spent a few minutes inside the flat, suggesting they knew exactly what they were doing,” the source says. “We have studied huge amounts of CCTV film in the area, and there is a chance that images of the men may have been caught on camera.” Police have yet to release the footage to the public.
Kardashian’s rep told Us that the star was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” from the incident. Hours later, Kardashian reunited with her husband, Kanye West, and their children, North, 3, and Saint, 10 months, in NYC. On Thursday, she and the kids returned home to the West Coast. “She has canceled everything for the next several weeks and will not be working,” a second source told Us. “She feels safer in L.A. and wants to be home with her family.”
Kardashian — and her famous family — are taking some time off from Keeping Up With the Kardashians, too. “Kim’s well-being is our core focus right now,” E! told Us in a statement on Thursday. “No decision has been made as to when production will resume.”
