Kim Kardashian held at gunpoint, robbed of $10M jewelry in Paris

Kim Kardashian West’s trip to Paris Fashion Week took a turn for the worst early Monday morning.

E! News reports that Kardashian was held at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room by two armed masked men disguised as police officers. Though she was physically unharmed, she was clearly badly shaken up by the incident.  According to the French Interior Ministry, five men entered the hotel, threatened a concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him, and then forced him to open the door to Kardashian’s private room.

Once entry to the room was gained, the men gagged and bound Kardashian at her feet. Handcuffed and held at gunpoint, they then locked her in the bathroom, but not before taking off with a jewelry box worth $6.7 million and a ring worth an additional $4 million, according to La Parisien.

Kardashian’s children, North, 3-years-old, and Saint, 9-months-old, were not involved in the terrifying encounter.

NBC News says Kardashian left Paris on Monday morning via her private jet.
