Kim Kardashian has pulled way back from the media since she was held up at gunpoint at a Paris hotel. That makes sense because the frenzy around her robbery has been insane. Everyone has an opinion, and many of those opinions are lacking in any kind of empathy. Even fellow celebrities are laughing at her trauma or insinuating it’s all fake.
Yesterday, it came out that an item of jewelry stolen in the heist was actually found on the sidewalk outside the hotel and handed into the police. Kim reported a loss of $5.6 million, but $4 million of that was for her giant diamond engagement ring. The piece found was a cross necklace made by Jacob and Co. and valued at around $33k. I wouldn’t throw that kinda money in the garbage, but either the thieves didn’t want it or they’re clumsy as hell. Either way,
TMZ is reporting that Kim Kardashian thinks her robbers were complete amateurs. Apparently, their cop uniforms looked like they came from the Halloween store, and the way they were brandishing a gun was mostly scary because they seemed to have no idea what they were doing, randomly approaching her and coming back for no reason. They also left duct tape and zip ties behind.
Police are checking the necklace for DNA matches. If these criminals are as incompetent as it seems, they may have a past record. Or maybe they were just trying robbery out for the first time!
