Kim Kardashian was the victim of an armed robbery in Paris around 3 a.m. local time Monday morning. Thieves allegedly stole over $10 million worth of jewelry, including a $4.5 million wedding ring.
According to French police, five individuals dressed in ski masks and police uniforms located Kardashian at the discreet Hotel de Pourtales in Paris.
The armed robbers overpowered and handcuffed the hotel's security guard. They then stole his keys in order to enter Kardashian's room. Two of the masked individuals threatened Kardashian at gunpoint and demanded her valuables. Kim allegedly pleaded with them to spare her life because she had kids at home. They tied her up and covered her mouth with packing tape before locking her in the bathroom.
In addition to the jewelry that was stolen, two of Kardashian's cell phones, purse, and cash were taken as well.
Kardashian was physically unharmed and boarded a private plane out of Paris immediately after giving the police her statement. Kardashian's husband, Kanye West, was in the middle of a concert when the news broke, causing him to abruptly end the show. "I'm sorry, there'a a family emergency, I have to stop the show," West told the audience.
Kardashian was staying at the discreet "No Address Hotel" often frequented by celebrities. She was in town attending Paris Fashion Week with her sisters Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian.
Just minutes before the robbery, Kardashian was Snapchating about her FaceTime call with brother Rob Kardashian and his fiancée Blac Chyna.
