15 arrested over Kim Kadashian’s robbery



The French Police arrested approximately 15 suspects in connection with the armed robbery of the reality TV star Kim Kardashian.

The suspects were arrested after an awkward suspect dropped a diamond pendant while fleeing the hotel. A bystander found the flashy accessory on the street and turned it to police hours after the robbery and it was used to trace the suspects.

According to western media, mask-wearing men barged into Kardashian’s rented apartment at a posh hotel taking at least $10 million worth of jewellery, including the famed diamond ring from Kanye West which she had showed off on social media before the incident.

At the time of the robbery, her body guard, Pascal Duvier, was out at a club with her sisters and this angered her fans who accused him of abandoning his role and opting for merry making. French authorities reportedly suspected that the raid on Kim’s Paris apartment could have been an inside job.

The media state that the robbers locked her in the bathroom and then broke into her luxury apartment and escaped with the jewellery.


The 36-year-old mother of two was in the French capital for the Paris Fashion Week at the time of the robbery with her mother Kris Jenner and her sister Kendall Jenner.

Kim told sources that she feared she was going to be killed.

The robbery caused a storm on social media with a number of celebrities sharing messages of support.

Weeks later, Kardashian’s rapper husband, Kanye West, was hospitalised after his Saint Pablo tour shortly after the incident. Rumour had it that Kanye’s sickness was also as a result of his wife’s shocking armed robbery.
