Were the criminals who robbed Kim Kardashian at gunpoint spying on her days before pulling off their horrifying heist? Two men reportedly stalked Kim through the streets of Paris, posing as a paparazzi and undercover cop to get vital information about her!
Kim, 35, was followed by two men in the days ahead of her terrifying robbery in Paris, sources close to the French Police tell The Daily Mail. These two men, described as “Caucasian” and “North African” – allegedly posed as a plain-clothed detective and a photographer to conduct “close surveillance” to gain vital information for their robbery.
“We know there was one man who pretended to be a photographer who followed [Kim] on a motorbike to find out her whereabouts,” the source said. “Another man pretended to be a plain-clothed detective to try to get a seat next to her at the exclusive Ferdi restaurant on Thursday night.”

“Both men were fakes,” the source claims. The false-photographer reportedly acted “suspiciously” after he joined the pack of paparazzi trailing the Kardashians. When the reportedly fraud attempted to listen to the conversations by the other photographers, “he was challenged by the genuine ones,” the source claims. As for the fake cop? He “fled when staff at Ferdi asked to see his credentials.”
The two men reportedly spoke with French accents and are not considered to be suspects in the terrifying armed robbery on Oct. 2 that left Kim begging for her life. After the gunmen ripped her from her bed, Kim first feared that she was about to be raped by her attackers. Instead, they bound and gagged her before putting her in the bathroom. Since surviving this attack, Kim is reportedly breaking into tears every few minutes. It’s likely that this robbery has traumatized Kim and it’s going to take a lot of work for her to recover.
While Kim works through the mental pain, the authorities are still looking for these men, as they suspect they’re part of a “sophisticated international criminal organization.” Many initially thought that Kim’s robbery was pulled off the Pink Panther Gang, an infamous group of roughly 200 criminals who have allegedly stolen more that $360 million dollars in jewelry and goods over the years.
Our thoughts continue to go out to Kim as she recovers from this traumatic experience. HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that two men trailed her during Paris before the robbery?
