When Kim Kardashian first broke her silence around the robbery she survived in Paris, it was clear how much the terrifying incident had affected her. And while arrests have finally been made and charges are being laid, new details continue to come out that are both shocking and wildly scary. The latest info comes from the police report that captured Kim’s account of the robbery just after it happened and it will seriously give you chills.
The French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche has released excerpts from the Parisian police report and People has translated the deets, revealing that during the robbery that saw the celeb robbed of approximately $5 million worth of jewellery and personal items (including her famous upgraded diamond engagement ring, two diamond Cartier bracelets, a gold and diamond Jacob necklace, Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings and a gold Rolex), Kim was working on her computer when…
“I heard a noise at the door, like footsteps, and I shouted, asking, ‘Who’s there?’ No one answered. I called my bodyguard at 2:56 a.m. Through the door, I saw two people arrive, plus the night man who was tied up.”
She continued by explaining that the two men had police paraphernalia (fake badges, perhaps?) and one of the men was wearing ski goggles. “It’s the one with the ski goggles who stayed with me,” she said, adding. “He demanded with a strong French accent, my ring. It was on the bedside table. It’s worth 4 million dollars. … I told him that I didn’t know, he took out a gun and I showed him the ring.”
And as if that wasn’t terrifying enough, Kim revealed that the ordeal didn’t end there.
“They grabbed me and took me into the hallway. I was wearing a bathrobe, naked underneath. Then we went in the room again and they pushed me on the bed.” Kim had previously revealed that she feared she would be raped and now we know why. “And, it was this time, they tied me up with plastic cables and taped my hands, then they put tape over my mouth and my legs.” Chilling!
Kim did admit, though, “I felt they were a bit inexperienced because of the way they tied me up.” And she may have been right, as one of the men arrested has been linked to the case in part due to his DNA found on the tape used to tie up the celeb. Reportedly considered the “mastermind” behind the crime, “Omar A.” or “Omar the Old” is just one of 10 people who have been charged so far.
Let’s hope this helps Kim find some closure as she continues through the healing process.
