Can you believe it?

Paris Week has been one hectic experience for Kim Kardashian West. From attending incredible shows, to being assaulted by notorious celeb pests, Kim has experienced a whirlwind week.

Now, Kim has reportedly been tied up and held at gunpoint during a terrifying robbery in Paris.

The frightening attack occurred in the early hours of Monday morning, when 5 men in police officer disguises forced their way into Kim’s luxury apartment in the Eighth Arrondissement.

According to sources the men attacked and handcuffed Kim’s body guard, Pascal Duvier, who she praised earlier in the week for tackling notorious celeb prankster, Vitalii Sediuk.

The 5 men then proceeded to break into Kim’s apartment, tying her up and locking her in the bathroom. They then stole over $10 million worth of jewels from the reality star, including a ring gifted to her from husband Kanye West which is worth more than 4 million euros.

Thankfully, Kim and Kanye’s children, North and Saint weren’t with the star at the time. Despite being badly shaken, Kim was left unharmed.

According to sources, Kim pleaded with her attackers, stating that she has babies at home.

Whilst the ordeal was occurring, Kayne was performing at New York’s Meadows music festival. When hearing about the robbery, Kanye abruptly stopped his performance stating that there was a family emergency.

“I’m sorry, there’s a family emergency. I have to stop the show,” stated West.

After giving statements to authorities, Kim left Paris by private plane with mum Kris Jenner and Kris’ boyfriend Corey Gamble, who were staying at separate accommodation. It’s believed that sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner are still in Paris.

The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, has said that Parisian police are working diligently to find the culprits and bring them to justice.

“I condemn the attack Kim Kardashian suffered last night in her hotel... She has my support and will always be welcome here in Paris. I have full confidence that the police force, as part of their investigation, will quickly identify and apprehend the perpetrators of these acts,” stated Hidalgo.

Kim has now been spotted safely in New York alongside Kanye and an amped up number of body guards.

While the attack is unbelievably frightening, things could have ended up much more sinister for the reality star. We hope that she is able to relax and recover after this terrifying ordeal.
