How on earth did the thieves enter Kim Kardashian's apartment so easily? That is the question French cops have been asking themselves, as they began speculating that the terrifying affair has been an inside job tipped off by the socialite's security team. The 35-year-old was inside her apartment in Paris when masked men entered and held her at gunpoint, while taking at least $11 million worth of her jewelries and personal effects with them.
Reliable sources told Page Six, "French police suspect that the five alleged robbers had some contact with her security and were tipped off about her procedures." They added that "they knew there was no security [with her inside her apartment that night]. All they had to do was go in, make contact with someone inside the hotel. They have issues with story of more than one worker at the hotel. They are also talking to bodyguards who worked with her earlier in the week."
Dailycaller.com further added that the concierge was tied up. The police, however, thinks that he may be involved in the robbery as well. A source revealed that while he was tied by the thieves demanding where the room of Mrs. Kanye West, the entire scenario seemed like a made-up act designed to look as if the concierge spilled details out of fear. "They did some things that were so unprofessional it seemed like a show."
Kim was tied-up, gagged, and locked in her bathroom; the thieves ran off on bikes along with her millions-worth of jewelries, cellphones, and credit cards. Security cameras, phone records of hotel employees, and security personnel who previously worked with Kim were investigated.
Kardashian's main bodyguard, Pascal Douvier was questioned, though he's not a suspect. He was with Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner during the robbery.
Former bodyguard Steve Stanulis told Page Six that Kim should refrain posting expensive items that could invite robbery. He said, "Kim's social media and her Snapchat is her undoing. When she is posting, 'Here I am, and this is the $5 million ring I am wearing, here's where I am going,' you are basically inviting someone to rob you."
