New reports say KIM KARDASHIAN was BOUND AND GAGGED when she was robbed at gunpoint in a Paris apartment over the weekend. Here are the latest developments:
It turns out there were FIVE men involved in the holdup. Kim was staying at what’s supposed to be kind of a secret apartment-style hotel complex where the rich and famous go when they’re in Paris.
It’s actually referred to as the “No Address Hotel“, and rooms can cost up to $17,000 a night. Madonna, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Prince have stayed there, too.
The robbers tied up the concierge . . . then two of them went into Kim’ room. They zip-tied and duct-taped her hands, then grabbed her by the ankles. According to TMZ, Kim later told police she was only wearing a bathrobe, and she thought she was about to be raped.
Instead, they duct-taped her feet and put her in the bathtub. Then they stole $11 million worth of jewelry, including that new $4.5 million diamond ring that Kim liked to brag about on Instagram.
It’s pretty obvious they were specifically looking for it, because they only spoke French, but they did keep saying, “ring, ring.”
During the ordeal, Kim was begging them not to hurt her, saying she had kids back home. They eventually duct-taped her mouth, too. After they’d taken all her jewelry, the thieves escaped on BICYCLES. (Frickin’ France!)
Now, it turns out there was another person in the apartment . . . a friend of Kim’s named Simone. She locked herself in a downstairs bathroom and texted Kim’s bodyguard and her sister KOURTNEY.
At the time Kim was attacked, the bodyguard was keeping an eye on Kourtney and KENDALL JENNER, who were out clubbing.
Kim was turning in for the night, so she didn’t think she’d need anybody watching over her. Ironically, earlier in the day, she posted a picture of herself with her bodyguard behind her, and captioned it, “This guy is always in my shot!”

Kim eventually freed herself, and the bodyguard showed up about two minutes after the thieves left. The whole thing only took about six minutes.
Kim gave a statement to police, and hopped a plane for the States. Kim and KANYE went to their Manhattan apartment yesterday, along with KRIS JENNER, who gave the crowd a thumbs-up. (Check out some pics here.)
By the way . . . the thieves also stole two iPhones. So who knows if they’ll be able to get data off of them, or what they’ll do with it.
