Kim Kardashian has arrived back in the US on a private jet after masked men put a gun to her temple, left her tied up in the bathroom of her luxury residence in Paris and stole millions of dollars’ worth of jewellery in the early hours of Monday.
There was a huge security presence outside Kardashian and husband Kanye West’s Manhattan home this afternoon – after her security team were blasted for allowing the robbers to reach her Paris bedroom.
They were also joined by main bodyguard Pascal Duvier – who was not with her at the time of the robbery but with her two sisters Kourtney and Kendall Jenner at a nightclub.
Just hours before the attack he had declared on Twitter how ‘you don’t become a bodyguard overnight…it’s a job with dedication, responsibility and passion.’
As Kim entered the building in New York, she was not wearing her engagement ring on her finger, prompting fears it might have been stolen in the raid.
The reality star, 35, was robbed by five armed men wearing ski masks and clothes with police markings. At around 3am, the robbers entered the building after the concierge let them in.
Handcuffed and at gunpoint, he then led them to the starlet’s flat. Kim reportedly ‘begged for her life’ and told the gunmen she had children at home as and when two of them entered her room and held the gun to her head.
The men stole a jewellery box worth €6 million ($6.7 million/ £5.24 million) and a ring worth €4 million ($4.5 million/ £3.5 million), prompting fears that the valuables were personal ones, and not just jewellery Kim was borrowing for fashion week.
