Kim’s husband Kanye West cut short his New York concert after hearing the news, citing a ‘family emergency’.
Kim Kardashian has been left "badly shaken but physically unharmed”, after being robbed at gunpoint in her Paris apartment.
The reality star was reportedly tied up and locked in the bathroom, as armed masked men dressed as police officers stole millions of dollars worth of jewellery before fleeing the scene.
Kim Kardashian is recovering after being robbed at gunpoint in Paris
A Paris police official told the Associated Press that five assailants, who were still at large, stole a jewellery box containing valuables worth €6 million, as well as a ring worth €4 million.
The Paris prosecutors' office further added that two of the five suspects forced their way into the apartment, located in the eighth district of the French capital.
According to the Daily Mail, the masked assailants entered the apartment at around 2.30am, after the concierge let them in. They then entered Kim's room, threatened her with a weapon, tied her up and locked her in the bathroom.
A spokesperson for Kim said she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed" after the ordeal and the 35-year-old has since been seen leaving Paris on a private jet.
Kim’s husband Kanye West was informed about the incident while he was performing on stage at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York. The rapper abruptly ended his set telling the crowd: "I'm sorry, family emergency I have to stop the show.”
Kim has been staying in the French capital for Paris Fashion Week and on Sunday attended the Balenciaga and Givenchy shows. Her mother Kris Jenner and sisters Kourtney and Kendall are also in Paris, but were not in the apartment at the time of the robbery.
Earlier in the week Kim was targeted by celebrity ‘prankster’ Vitalii Sediuk, who attempted to kiss her behind as she stepped out of her car in Paris.
Sediuk, who had targeted Gigi Hadid the week before, was quickly taken down by one of Kim’s bodyguards and she is now said to have filed a complaint with the French authorities over the incident.
