    I think it's safe to say this is the only time I will be posting any Kardashian related news... crazy situation tho, sounds like she was robbed by two men dressed as police;

    http://edition.cnn.com/2016/10/02/en...ncy/index.html

    "Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers. She is badly shaken but physically unharmed," Kim Kardashian West spokesperson Ina Treciokas tells CNN."

    HOW THE ARMED RAID AT KIM KARDASHIAN'S PARIS APARTMENT PLAYED OUT:

    Five men dressed as police officers enter the building after the concierge let them in.
    The concierge is handcuffed at gunpoint, he then leads the men to the starlet's flat.
    The men enter Kim's room and threaten her with a weapon.
    They tie her up and lock her in the bathroom.
    The robbers steal $11 million worth of jewellery including a jewellery box and a ring, before fleeing.
    Kanye West cancels his set at the Meadow Music and Art Festival, New York, as he hears about the raid.
    Kim's sisters Kourtney and Kendall Jenner stop partying at Arc nightclub in Paris and rush to the apartment after hearing of the heist.
    Pictures show that Kim's bodyguard was out with Kourtney at the time, not back at the apartment with Kim.
    The actress' family was placed under police protection at the George V palace after the incident.

    A photographer, who has been following Kim since she arrived in Paris, is being questioned by police.
    He is said to have gained access to a restaurant where she and her family were dining earlier this week by posing as a policeman.

    It may be really mean and I'm glad she's okay but my first thought was "Staged...". Can't help it.

    Kim must have been terrified and thought she might not see her children again. Whether you are a fan or not she deserves sympathy and compassion after such an awful ordeal she could easily have been killed. She did the right thing though by co-operating and they may have taken sentimental jewellery but nothing is worth losing your life over.

    Kim Kardashian West Robbed of Millions in Jewelry in Paris

    by Nancy Ing, Erin Dean, Alex Johnson and Hasani Gittens

    PARIS — Kim Kardashian West was robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry while visiting Paris on Sunday night, according to a judicial source and reports.

    A second source with knowledge of security at the private mansion where the reality TV star was staying told NBC News that she was tied up during the incident and that a wedding ring was among the valuables taken...

    Sounds like a carefully planned heist. Like her or not, it must have been terrifying for her. Much worse could have happened to her. And what if she had her babies with her. shudder. I would be looking closely at the concierge that was forced to let them in her flat.

    Hmmmm. I wonder if she was supposed to be at night club with sisters, and decided last minute not to go? Maybe rooms were supposed to be empty at time of Heist. Insider, insider, insider.

    It struck me how that if this was in U.S.A. she very well may have been badly hurt. Our culture with robberies are associated with alot more unnecessary violence against the victims. She is one lucky lady.

    Don't have to like her, OK to even hate her, but we are victim friendly here and I think we should remember that. JMO.

    Ditto. PR stunt.
    But, hopefully if it is they'll be exposed.

    Paris gunmen rob Kardashian West of millions in jewelry

    Angela Charlton, Associated Press 11:08 a.m. EDT October 3, 2016

    Paris — Armed robbers forced their way into a private Paris residence where Kim Kardashian West was staying, tied her up and locked her in a bathroom before making off with more than $10 million worth of jewelry, police officials said Monday.

    A spokeswoman for Kardashian West said the reality TV star, who was in Paris attending fashion week shows, was badly shaken but physically unharmed. Police said she left Paris Monday morning a few hours after the incident took place...

    Not going to speculate until more is known about how this went down. Presumably, there are surveillance cameras at this hotel that should provide details. I'm sure there are detailed descriptions of the jewelry with photos of same. Perps will be caught if/when they attempt to sell the stolen jewelry.

    Located just steps from the Champs-Elysées, with private terraces that command all of Paris, lovingly restored 18th-century tapestries, and a defining spirit of elegance and charm, Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris redefines luxury in the City of Light.

    I can't STAND the Kardashian family, for numerous reasons. But I highly doubt this was staged. And I do feel sympathy for her. Of course, she chose to live in the public eye, which comes with risks. But this was probably a harrowing experience for her. It sounds like the kids weren't present. That's great news, if it's the case.

    Questions I have:

    How did the men know she would be alone? How would they know exactly when and who would be in the apartment? They risked a whole lot and just happened to catch her all by herself?

    It was either staged or an inside job, because it seemed to have gone rrrreeeeaaaallllllllyyyy smoothly to be outsiders.
