October 28, 2016
Kim Kardashian, a reality television star, was robbed on Monday, October 3rd. Being a very popular person on social media, with millions of followers on Instagram and Twitter, word quickly spread about her “incident” in Paris. The reality television star had returned to her room after a night out with her sisters and had started to unwind when two men came in to her room.
The two men that entered her room held her at gunpoint, tied and gagged her, then robbed nearly 9 million dollars worth of jewelry. The men that entered the room were seen leaving the hotel with three more people. There was a security camera video that has surfaced of the street view of the hotel. Three men can be seen arriving to the hotel on bikes and a couple seconds later, two men walk up to the hotel separately. These men are believed to be part of the Pink Panther gang, which is a gang that internationally steals jewelry.
The concierge has finally said his side of the story. He was forced to tell the two men that entered the hotel where Kim Kardashian was staying and forced him to let them into her room. According to the concierge, the men kept repeating “money, money, money” in which Mrs. Kardashian West responded to by showing them her hand, meaning that she was not wearing her 15-carat ring, but then quickly went to get it and gave it to the man. The man simply put the ring in his pocket, according to the concierge, to the man it was just another ring, he was there for the money. Yet, other sources say that the concierge is also part of the Pink Panther gang, it is still unknown and the entire robbery is still being investigated.
Many people also blame Ms. Kardashian West for her robbery. “[She is] too public, too public—we have to see in what time we live. You cannot display your wealth then be surprised that some people want to share it,” said Karl Lagerfeld, “I don’t understand why [Kardashian] was in a hotel with no security and things like this. If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net [social media], you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room.” Her body guard had been with Kim Kardashians sisters, reason being why he was not with her at the time of the robbery, her body guard was fired.
Kim Kardashian was not physically harmed, but emotionally shaken up. Kanye West, Kim’s husband, left in the middle of a concert after finding out what had happened, and is now looking into getting better security for Kim. The entire robbery is being investigated and Paris is trying to figure out how this happened and wants to increase their security.
