Kim Kardashian Was Robbed At Gunpoint In Paris

The suspects disguised themselves as police to gain entry.

Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint during a visit to Paris, People reports. Kim was staying at the No Address Hotel during her stay for Paris Fashion Week, but things took a turn for the worse early Monday morning.

Five men dressed as police officers gained entry to the hotel using the service entrance around 2:30 a.m. Sunday night and threatened the concierge. Two of the men entered Kim's hotel room and used tape to bind her hands and feet before locking her in the bathroom. The suspects them made off with a jewelry box containing $6.7 million worth of jewelry and a ring worth $4 million, as well as Kim's purse, two cell phones and 1,000 euros, BFM TV reports.

"She is badly shaken but physically unharmed," Kim's rep told People magazine. According to reports, her children - 3-year-old North and 9-month-old Saint - were not involved in the incident.

After the horrifying ordeal, the reality star left Paris via a private jet. Kim's dutiful husband Kanye West stopped his performance at the Meadows Music & Arts Festival in NYC as soon as he heard about what happened.

"I'm sorry," he told the crowd after halting the performance mid-song. "Family emergency. I have to stop the show."
