Kim Kardashian feared rape during Paris heist
Los Angeles, Oct 4 (IANS) Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has reportedly said she feared she would be raped when two men broke into her Paris hotel room and robbed her at gunpoint. But she was unharmed.
According to a report by tmz.com, Kim told the police that she believed she was about to be raped when one attacker grabbed her by the ankles.
The robbers, however, duct taped her ankles, picked her up and put her in the bathtub. She begged the robbers not to kill her because she had babies and they could take whatever they wanted.
Kim also told the police that the robbers didn’t speak English and only spoke French. The attackers kept saying “ring, ring”, and she knew that they were looking for the new ring given to her by her husband and rapper Kanye West.
When she kept begging and crying, the robbers duct taped her mouth — and the entire incident took only six minutes, tmz.com reported.
Kim was not alone at the two-storey apartment at the time of the robbery. Her friend Simone was sleeping in the downstairs bedroom. Upon hearing commotion, she locked herself in the bathroom and called Kim’s bodyguard Pascal as well as Kourtney Kardashian. They arrived at the apartment two minutes after the robbers left.
According to varied media reports, the robbers reportedly took jewellery worth over six million euros among other items.
Earlier, it was claimed the bodyguard was with Kim during the incident.
Kim left Paris the morning after the incident took place.
