Kim Kardashian feared she was going to be raped, as chilling new details emerge from the break-in are revealed.
Kim was reportedly tied up in the bathroom of a luxury Paris apartment as masked men stole millions of dollars worth of jewellery.
Kim had been asleep at around 2.25am Monday when she heard the robbers barreling up the stairs of her two-story apartment behind Madeleine church in the city’s 8th arrondissement, TMZ reported.
While Kim’s phone was snatched out of her hands before she could call for help, her quick-thinking friend Simone Harouche sprung from her bed downstairs and locked herself in a bathroom, the website reported.
The fashion stylist and long-time friend of the Kardashians called Kim’s personal bodyguard Pascal Duvier, who was out at the Arc nightclub with Kourtney and Kendall less than two miles away.
Meanwhile, the 35-year-old reality star begged for her life, screaming that she had two children as five masked men, dressed in clothes with police markings bound her wrists and ankles with zip ties and duct tape.
Kim, who later told police she feared she was going to be raped, didn’t understand the French-speaking robbers amidst the chaotic scene.
But she heard them repeating ‘ring, ring’ before she realized they were searching for the 20-carat emerald-cut Lorraine Schwartz ring given to her by husband Kanye West, according to TMZ.
She soon told them where she left the ring, which is worth a reported $4.5million (€4 million /£3.5 million) and last seen on Kim’s finger in a Snapchat post earlier that night.
The men, who entered the building after holding the concierge at gunpoint, also stole a jewellery box worth $6.7 million (€6 million/ £5.24 million) before escaping on rented bicycles available throughout the city.
Kim’s bodyguard, who managed to return to the apartment two minutes after the men escaped, was blasted for allowing the shocking security lapse while former guard Steve Stanulis suggested it was an inside job.
While her security team was blasted for allowing the robbers to reach her Paris bedroom, Pascal Duvier boarded the star’s private jet back to the US along with Kim’s assistant.
Just hours before the raid, he tweeted that ‘you don’t become a bodyguard overnight…it’s a job with dedication, responsibility and passion.’
Steve Stanulis, a security specialist who last worked for Kim and Kanye during the Met Gala in May, blamed the star for broadcasting her jewellery on social media, adding that she needed armed security guards before suggesting possibilities of an inside job.
He told Dailymail.com: ‘Look, they had this coming to them. They do not respect the importance of security when you have a profile as strong as theirs.
‘I saw this happening. It just had to with the way Kim flaunts her riches and her diamonds.’
He also told Page Six: ‘I would say it’s either an inside job or publicity stunt. That hotel is so secure, somebody must have tipped them off that she was alone inside, or shown them a way in.’
Kim is concerned that private images and details on her phone may be leaked.
