Thank goodness, Kim Kardashian-West is finally embracing real reality!
Reportedly, the 35-year-old reality star has vowed to stop flaunting her wealth on social media after being tied up, gagged, and robbed at gunpoint when five masked men stormed the private flat where she was staying in Paris, early Monday morning.
According to the UK Daily Mail, the robbers stole Kim’s 20-carat Lorraine Schwartz ring (worth $4.5 million) along with her jewelry box comprised of gems worth $6.7 million. The ring, last seen on Kim’s finger in a Snapchat story hours before the robbery, was a gift from hubby, Kanye West. As previously reported, a close source said Kim begged for her life and thought she was going to die. “
Kim is very, very shaken up,” the source told Entertainment Tonight.
“She thought she was going to die. They put a gun to her head while they were searching the apartment. She was crying, begging them for her life. It’s an absolute awful story. One of the most terrifying experiences of her life.”
While many empathized with Kim, others, like designer, Karl Lagerfield blasted the mother-of-two for flaunting her wealth on her social media accounts. Lagerfield thinks Kim made herself a target.
Reportedly, Kim agreed with the designer and has decided to take a month off from work. The reality star also vowed to change how she displays her wealth.
“Material things mean nothing. It’s not all about the money. It’s not worth it,” she said.
Kim’s decision to change from her showy ways is not the only news that’s surfaced where this story’s concerned.
Reportedly, the concierge who was on shift at the time of the robbery has come forward to testify. He said he was held at gunpoint after the five men approached him posing as police.
According to the concierge, who is unnamed, the perps arrived at 2:30 a.m., and got through the first set of locked doors. They claimed it was urgent and insisted on seeing “Ms. Kardashian.”
Actually, low-ranking night staff do not have such easy access to $32,442.25-a-night flats used by high-profiled celebs.
Furthermore, there are a number of security precautions in place to prohibit access to the nine apartments located in the luxury mansion.
“It is inconceivable that this concierge could have just walked into the flat with the robbers without breaking the door down, and there is no sign of forced entry,’ said an investigating source.”
Can you say suspect?
Police determined the gang had arrived and left via bicycle, and then managed to evade video surveillance. Kim’s stylist, Simone Harouche was in the flat at the time of the robbery. Reportedly, Harouche was not the one who informed authorities.
Reportedly, Kim said she freed herself and called her bodyguard, Pascal Duvier at 2:56 a.m., before calling French police. Duvier, was out at a nightclub with other members of the Kardashian family at the time of the incident. Further investigations reveal Duvier has recently been declared bankrupt.
Hmm, can you say suspect number two?
Adding more of a twist to the whole fiasco, Pornhub has offered a $50,000 award for any information on the robbery heist. The porn site is most famous for showcasing Kim’s sex tape with ex-beau Ray J, and considers Kim family.
The sex tape, which was filmed in 2003 and leaked in 2007, has been viewed over 110,000,00 via pornhub.com. That’s the most views the site has accumulated during its nine-year run.
