Around 2:25 a.m. on October 3, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint during her stay in Paris. According to NBC News, two masked men posing as police officers forced their way into her residency. They then tied her up, gagged her, and stole over $10 million worth of jewelry.
But here’s the thing: if they were posing as police officers, why were they wearing masks?
Supposedly, the armed men gained access to Kardashian’s room by forcing the hotel’s concierge to disclose which room she was staying in. But here’s another thing: why was there only one security officer on duty?
According to The Guardian, this super private estate has been frequented by other famous faces, including: Leonardo DiCaprio, Madonna, Prince, and Russian politican Roman Abramovich. One would think that a place with such eminent clientele would have maximum security.
Some sources speculate that it was an inside job. Someone who worked at the estate knew that security was light on this particular night, and so they staged the entire heist.
But the estate’s lack of security is only half the equation. Kim Kardashian, who is constantly surrounded by bodyguards, apparently didn’t have any security staying with her on the night of the attack. A little odd, isn’t it?
It’s long been rumored that Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, has been struggling financially. West, who was performing on stage when the incident took place, promptly cancelled his show early upon learning of the attack. Could it be that both Kanye and Kim staged the entire thing in order to scam their insurance company? Who knows.
We do know, however, that Kim Kardashian (who is known for being extremely active on social media) has been unusually quiet since the incident. So here’s another theory: she might have been sexually assaulted in addition to being robbed. Let it be noted that there is no evidence to confirm this theory, but it might explain why she’s been so uncharacteristically silent.
While nobody deserves to be robbed, one can’t help but to raise an eyebrow when it happens to someone who is notorious for seeking attention.
