Kim Kardashian Was Bound and Gagged While Being Held at Gunpoint in Paris
Kim Kardashian is safe after a dangerous incident in Paris on Monday. "Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening by two armed masked men dressed as police officers," her reps told The Hollywood Reporter. "She is badly shaken but physically unharmed." The French Interior Ministry later said that five men were involved; they forced the concierge to give them access to Kim's private apartment, where two of the men then entered. On Today, it was also revealed that the Paris Prosecutor's office confirmed one of the reality star's rings (potentially her wedding ring) and her jewelry box, worth over $10 million, were stolen.
Making matters even scarier, a source told E! that Kim was also bound and gagged during the incident, before being handcuffed and threatened with a gun. "She begged for them to let her live and [said] she has babies at home. Then they wrapped her mouth in tape and put her in the bathtub," the source revealed. "She thought they were for sure going to kill her." Kim was in town for the Paris Fashion Week shows, notably heading out in a lace jumpsuit on Saturday and attending the Balenciaga show on Sunday. Husband Kanye West was forced to cut his set short at the Meadows Festival in Queens, NY, on Sunday night due to the emergency. Here's a video:
