Kim Kardashian has fled France on a private jet after masked men put a gun to her temple, left her tied up in the bathroom of her luxury residence in Paris and stole millions of dollars’ worth of jewellery in the early hours of Monday.
The reality star, 35, was robbed by five armed men wearing ski masks and clothes with police markings. The men stole a jewellery box worth €6 million ($6.7 million) and a ring worth €4 million ($4.5 million), prompting fears that the valuables were personal ones, and not just jewellery Ms Kardashian was borrowing for fashion week. An insider said the total worth could be as high as $16 million.
Kim also lost two of her prized smart phones – ones that are likely to contain a great deal of personal information.
