We were completely floored from the moment we heard Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint and robbed on Oct. 3, but as more details from the terrifying night have been revealed, the whole story gets more and more surprising. Here are the most shocking revelations that’ve been made so far.
1. She was tied up & locked in a bathroom
After the horrifying robbery, Kim Kardashian’s rep released a statement confirming that the reality star had been held at gunpoint, and sharing that she was “shaken up but physically unharmed.” But though she doesn’t have serious injuries, it was later revealed that Kim was severely manhandled! The men dragged her out of bed in the middle of the night, then tied up her arms and legs, taped her mouth and locked her up in the bathroom. She was completely helpless as they attacked her, but luckily, she was able to free herself once they left.
2. The concierge let the robbers in
The masked men were able to get past the front desk by holding a gun to the concierge’s head, but Kim’s reported testimony definitely makes things look a little fishy when it comes to the doorman. She reportedly told TMZ that he seemed very calm throughout the robbery, despite having a gun to his head, and when she tearfully asked him, ‘Are we gonna die?’ he simply responded, ‘I don’t know.’ He was also reportedly able to lead the men directly into Kim’s private room, which is somewhat suspicious, as well.
3. The robbers knew exactly what they wanted
Kim reportedly told officers that the men repeatedly kept asking her about her “ring,” and she immediately knew they were referring to the $4 million sparkler Kanye West, 39, gave her in August. The 35-year-old has constantly been showing off the bling on social media and in public, so it’s no surprise that the men knew it existed, and they wound up making off with that, along with a jewelry box worth millions.
4. Kim was home alone at the time of the robbery
Kim barely has ANY privacy, so it was pretty strange to find out she was without any security at the time of the attack. Her friend, Simone Harouche, was in the room downstairs, but her bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, sisters and assistant were all out at the club a few miles away. Simone eventually texted Pascal for help, but the fact that the men coincidentally knew Kim would be home alone has led many to speculate if this is an inside job.
5. The family is gearing up to go much more low-key
The Kardashians are known for their love of the spotlight, but it seems that will all change now. For the most part, the ladies have been pretty silent on social media since Kim was robbed, and a bunch of their upcoming appearances have also been cancelled: Khloe Kardashian, 32, Kendall Jenner, 20, and Kylie Jenner, 19, all postponed upcoming book signings, while Kim is holding off on an appearance in Dubai later this month. Kim is also reportedly planning on being much less flashy on social media, and we can bet that the family’s security detail will be amped up more than ever.
