Reality star, Kim Kardashian has been tied up and held at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room. While in France for Paris Fashion Week supporting model sister Kendall, Kim was attacked by two masked men at around 2:30am this morning, who were dressed as police officers.
"Kim Kardashian West was held at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers," Kim's spokesperson has reported.
"She is badly shaken but physically unharmed."
According to CNN, five men threatened the concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open the private apartment where two of the men gained entry.
West was was then locked in the bathroom while the men took two cell phones, a jewellery box with items worth millions as well as a ring valued at $4.5 million.
Kim's husband Kanye was not with her at the time of attack, but in New York performing at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival.
Whilst midway through his set, West abruptly stopped his performance saying, "I'm sorry, family emergency, I have to stop the show."
Sister Kendall visited Kim immediately following the incident, and was seen leaving the premises under police protection around 4am Paris time.
At this time, it is still unclear whether the couples two children, three-year-old daughter, North and nine-month-old son, Saint, were with Kim when the robbery took place, but PEOPLE magazine reports that the children were not involved.
It is believed that Kim and sister Kourtney are already on their way back to the States.
