A spokesperson for reality TV star Kim Kardashian West released a statement saying that Kim was held at gunpoint by two masked men inside a hotel room in Paris. There are very few details as to the events that transpired, but it is confirmed that Kim is safe now and was not physically harmed. The two masked men were reportedly dressed as police officers, which could have been how they were able to get close to her. Their whereabouts are currently unknown.
On Sunday night, Kim was in Paris for Fashion Week with her sisters Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian, and her mother Kris Jenner. Kim was apparently alone when she encountered the two men. There are no details about where Kim’s two younger sisters were when the incident transpired. It is also not clear why these masked men did this in the first place. Some speculators say it was probably a publicity stunt organized by Kim Kardashian, although there is no evidence to back this theory up. Paris police are currently interviewing Kim while they conduct their investigation into the matter.
Kim’s husband, Kanye West, was performing a concert at New York’s Meadows Festival when he heard the news about Kim. He immediately told his audience that he had to leave because of a “family emergency.” Everyone at the concert was in shock because they didn’t know what was happening. But the news about the incident with his wife is likely going to break fast, though. So perhaps Kanye’s fans will now understand why the concert ended so abruptly.
Kim’s spokesperson says she is a bit shaken up by the incident. More details about what happened are likely to come out in the next few days. Kanye is expected to join Kim in Paris as she goes through this difficult time.
