Kim Kardashian’s robbers targeted star after ‘seeing jewels on social media’

Thieves who robbed Kim Kardashian West at gunpoint were targeting possessions seen on social media, police said after the multimillion-pound jewellery raid. The reality TV star left Paris on a private jet just hours after she was robbed of jewellery reportedly worth £9 million at an exclusive private apartment building. Police in the French capital have described the incident as “extremely rare” and said the robbers were focused on “possessions that had been seen and noticed via social media”.

Four days ago, Kim Kardashian West posted a close-up photograph of a huge diamond ring on her left hand captioned with three diamond emojis. The TV star, who was attending Paris Fashion Week, was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” after masked men dressed as police officers robbed her, her spokeswoman said. Johanna Primevert, chief spokeswoman for the Paris police department, told the Associated Press: “This is the result of people who obviously posed as policemen and who assaulted Ms Kardashian in a private hotel in her room by threat of a weapon.

“This kind of incident is extremely rare in Paris. This is a star who is famous worldwide. Do not confuse what happened to Ms Kim Kardashian and probably was the result of an organised team who had planned their action with the assault of a tourist in front of Notre Dame (cathedral) or another tourist spot in Paris.”
