(Gainesville, GA) After just receiving a $4 million dollar ring from Kanye West, Kim K was held at gunpoint inside her hotel room in Paris just days after. The reality television star was staying in the luxury Hotel de Pourtalès, when five gunmen who disguised themselves as police officers held her captive during the robbery.
Kim’s bodyguard, Pascal Duvier was sent to protect Kendall and Kourtney at high-end nightclub L’Arc shortly before the robbery, meaning that Kim was left alone. The gunmen tied her up and gagged her with duct tape in the midst of stealing $8.5 million worth of jewelry.
Days before, Kanye surprised Kim with a $4 million dollar Lorraine Schwartz ring after agreeing a new business deal with Adidas. Consequently, he engraved the band with the word ‘Adidas’ and woke her in the middle of the night, telling her he had bought her something from Adidas. It came as a surprise when Kim woke up to find a Lorraine Schwartz box left on her pillow, opposed to thinking he had bought her a pair of Adidas trainers.
Kanye was currently performing at The Meadows Music and Arts Festival in Citi Field, Ne
w York at the time of the attack. After he heard the news, he cut the show due to a ‘family emergency’, before jetting to Paris to be with his wife. Following the robbery, security experts have placed criticism upon Kim by claiming she flaunts her wealth all over the Internet. German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld shared his comments at the Paris Fashion Week by saying – “You cannot display your wealth then be surprised that some people want to share it,” (Mike Larkin, Daily Mail).
Kim and Kanye are now residing in their New York apartment following the recent attack. Investigations
are underway in Paris, where the French police are working hard to crack the case of Kim’s missing jewelry and to find the five suspects.
