In just a few short moments, Kim Kardashian’s life was turned completely upside down, as she was bound, gagged, locked in a bathroom, held at gunpoint and robbed at her apartment in Paris. Here is a full timeline of of the terrifying incident.
After attending a dinner in Paris, Kim Kardashian, 35, retreated back to her room for a quiet night in on Oct. 2. It’s unclear if she was totally alone at the time, but we do know that her sisters, Kourtney Kardashian, 37, and Kendall Jenner, 20, went out for the night with her assistant and bodyguard, and it appears she was totally solo in the lavish suite.
In the middle of the night, five masked men dressed as police officers threatened the building’s concierge with a gun, and forced him to take them to Kim’s room and unlock the door. Afterward, he was reportedly bound and gagged, then locked in a stairwell. Meanwhile, two of the men held a gun to Kim’s head as they tied her hands and put tape over her mouth, then locked her in the bathroom as the group raided her apartment.
Throughout the raid, the men stole a jewelry box with $6.4 million worth of jewels inside, as well as a $4.3 million ring, which many suspect is the massive diamond Kanye West, 39, gifted her with a few months ago. Her phone was also stolen during the ordeal. As the men were manhandling her, Kim begged them not to take her life, letting them know she has two babies at home.
Eventually, when it was all over, the reality star was somehow able to free herself from the restraints the men put on her hands, which is when she finally called for help. At the time this was all happening, Kanye was on stage in New York City, but he abruptly stopped the show, citing a “family emergency,” the second he caught wind of news that something was terribly wrong.
Kim gave a statement to police and was escorted off the property, then immediately arrived to the airport to head home on a private jet with her assistant and bodyguard. ‘Ye picked her up at the airport on the morning of Oct. 3, and the couple, along with Kris Jenner, 60, and Corey Gamble, 35, were seen arriving back to their place in Manhattan shortly after.
