Kim Kardashian West Held at Gunpoint in Paris
October 3rd, 2016
My thoughts have been with the Kardashian-West family all morning after hearing reports that my dear friend Kim Kardashian West was held at gunpoint in Paris. The men who accosted her reportedly dressed as police officers and forced their way into the private residence she was renting for Paris Fashion Week.
According to CNN:
“Kim was ‘badly shaken but physically unharmed’ following the incident, which took place early Monday morning local time.
Five men threatened the mansion concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open the private apartment.
Two of the men were able to gain entry to Kardashian West’s room, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office, and a gun was held to her head. A source familiar with the situation told CNN that Kardashian’s two children, North West and Saint West, “were not present” at the time of the incident.
She was locked in a bathroom while the men took two cell phones and jewelry worth millions of dollars, the Interior Ministry said.”
Upon hearing the news, Kanye West immediately stopped his show mid-performance and apologized to the crowd. He said, “I’m sorry, I have to stop the show. Family emergency.”
This situation is incredibly unnerving. I can only imagine what Kim, Kanye, and the entire family must be feeling right now. I am so relieved to hear no one was physically hurt. But I do pray they get through the emotional damage they must be enduring.
