Paris Robbery: Kim Kardashian’s Police Interview Leaked
There have been more developments than ever in the Paris robbery investigation that left reality star Kim Kardashian bound and gagged for $10 million worth of her possessions.
With seventeen people being arrested last week in connection with the robbery, which occurred in October of last year, more details have now been revealed of what exactly happened that night.
Kim’s interview with French police has been leaked, revealing her talking to authorities about exactly what happened and recalling the harrowing event.
The statement, which was recorded just hours after the terrifying robbery took place, sees Kim recall everything to the police force involved in the case at 4.30am on October 3.
French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche released the interview that the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star gave right after the emotionally-scarring robbery occurred.
The 36-year old told French police:
I heard a noise at the door, like footsteps and I shouted out to ask who was there but no one answered. I called my bodyguard at 2.56am. Then, behind the sliding doors, I saw two people arrive with the gentleman from reception, and he was tied up. Both men were hooded, one had a ski mask and he had a cap and jacket with ‘police’ on it…
Recounting what happened next, the mom-of-two went on to say,
He asked me, with a strong French accent, where was my ring. It was placed on the bedside table. It cost four million dollars. I answer him that I don’t know, he takes out a weapon and I show him the ring.
But that wasn’t enough for Kim’s attackers.
They grabbed me and took me into the hallway. I was wearing a bathrobe, naked underneath… they tied me up with plastic cables and taped my hands, then they put tape over my mouth and my legs [and] carried me [to]… my bathtub.
Diamond bracelets, Kim’s Lorraine Schwartz ring, and a necklace with Kim’s son Saint’s name on it were among the precious and expensive items that the robbers stole from her that night.
The interview hears authorities ask the star if she’s hurt, to which Kim answers ‘no’ and states there is a private plane waiting to take her back to the U.S.
Omar A is reportedly the mastermind behind the armed robbery, with him being charged after his DNA was found on the tape used to tie Kim up.
