Kidnapping Kim K's Kollection
Kim Kardashian has had a bad week, to say the least.
Arriving in Paris for Fashion Week, Kardashian has been having some bad luck. At first, she had to ward off a potential ambusher on September 28, 2016.
The same man who picked up Gigi Hadid on September 22, 2016 is the man who unsuccessfully ambushed Kardashian. He is a known Ukrainian prankster, named Vitalii Sediuk. He’s done many celebrity “pranks” and have gotten away with most of them.
This is not the first time he has attacked Kim; she was tackled by Sediuk back in 2014, also during Paris Fashion Week. Sediuk has performed many of his “pranks” on other celebrities, ranging from trying to kiss Will Smith in 2012, and punching Brad Pitt during the “Maleficent” premiere in 2014. Legally, Sediuk is now banned from all Hollywood events.
Five men dressed as police officers threatened the concierge, and two of the men gained access to Kardashian’s room. At the time, none of her kids or relatives were in the room with her.
Pascal Duvier, the Kardashian family’s bodyguard, was not with Kardashian during the robbery. He was with Kourtney and Kendall while they were out on the town.
Kardashian was bound and gagged with duct tape, then locked in the bathroom while the robbers took $10 million dollars worth of jewelry.
Kim was physically unharmed, but very mentally shaken. The robbers are still on the loose, escaping on foot. Kim seems to be taking some precautions.
She is taking the rest of the month of October off, spending time with her kids and her family. Her choice of who she is following on Twitter has changed. She is dressing less openly now, covering herself up more.
A pendant piece belonging to Kardashian was recovered by a passerby recently. Kardashian has confirmed that the necklace is hers, which is worth about $33,000.
Kanye West received news of his wife’s robbery while performing at a concert in Queens. He stopped the show in the middle of his performance of “Heartless.”
“ I’m sorry, family emergency, I have to stop the show,” he could be heard saying. The audience was visibly upset.
Dates for his Saint Pablo tour were rescheduled, and performances are back to normal.
Despite rumors flying around claiming the robbery was staged, Khloe Kardashian commented, “I mean, she’s not doing that well. I mean, it's incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we'll get through it together, and we do appreciate all of your guys' love and support and it will take time."
