Gunmen dressed as cops rob Kim Kardashian of $10m in jewelries




Reality TV star Kim Kardashian didn’t quite expect the horrifying reception she would be faced with on her visit to the French capital for Paris Fashion Week when she was robbed at gun point by men dressed as cops.

According to a French official, the incident took place in the private apartment of the mother as the gunmen carted away a ring worth $4.5m and jewelry box worth $5.5m.

Kim was reportedly locked up in the toilet of the private apartment while the operation lasted and she has now left the city of Paris after speaking with police.
