Kim Kardashian West was held up and robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry while visiting Paris on Sunday night, according to a judicial source and reports.
The reality star’s spokeswoman told NBC News that she had been held at gunpoint.
Five individuals dressed as police officers went to a private mansion where Kardashian West was staying, according to a judicial source.
Two of them made it inside before escaping with a ring worth about $4.5 million and a jewelry box containing other items worth $5.6 million, the judicial source told NBC news. The Associated Press also cited a Paris police official as confirming that account.
The robbers tied up Kardashian West and locked her in the bathroom, police told The AP. It also reported that five armed, masked men, were still at large. NBC News could not immediately verify those details.
Kardashian West was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” after being held at gunpoint, a spokeswoman for the star said.
Kardashian West had traveled to France for Paris Fashion Week and attended the Givenchy show Sunday night.
On Monday morning, police were gathered outside the Hotel de Pourtales, which has been described as a “no address establishment” which offers luxurious and discreet apartment rentals to the rich and famous.
It’s unclear if the couple’s two children, 3-year-old daughter North and 10-month-old son Saint, were with Kardashian West at the private mansion.
Her husband, Kanye West, abruptly walked off the stage during a New York concert when he learned of the news, leaving hundreds of fans bewildered and unhappy.
Paris has been a special place for Kardashian West and her husband. They spent the weekend there before marrying in Florence, Italy, in May 2014.
