Internet-breaking reality TV star Kim Kardashian met with French authorities today in New York City as part of the ongoing investigation of her robbery in Paris late last year. According to TMZ, Kardashian met with a French judge behind closed doors and tried to identify the men who held her at gunpoint before she was bound, gagged, and robbed of over $10 million in jewels.
Kim was in The Big Apple with her two children, North and Saint West, after a family trip to Costa Rica. Her husband, the hip-hop star Kanye West, was not with her. Reportedly, he felt it would be too stressful for him, according to The Daily Mail.
The French legal system allows the judge and attorneys to travel to different jurisdictions, especially in high-profile criminal cases, such as the Kardashian robbery. So far, 17 people have been arrested in connection to the crime which occurred on October 2, 2016, while Kim was attending Fashion Week in Paris.
Details of Kim’s testimony were leaked to the French newspaper Le Monde last month, recounting the harrowing moments when the curvy pop culture icon was held at gunpoint by two masked bandits. Among the items stolen was a ring given to her by her husband worth $4 million.
The upcoming season of the E! Network television series Keeping Up With The Kardashians will feature Kim’s emotional retelling of the robbery and its aftermath. You can see a clip of it here. The series was put on hold immediately following the robbery.
