Kim Kardashian’s Paris Robbery Arrests from October

When Kim Kardashian-West was robbed at gunpoint in Paris at the Hotel de Pourtales , she disappeared from social media and went through a healing process. Clearly, it was a traumatic experience for the TV personality, with millions stolen in jewelry, including a $4 million ring from husband Kanye West. According to USA Today, the French police arrested 17 suspects in connection with the robbery in January 2017. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Kardashian will get any of her jewelry back.

It appears to be an inside job, with Kardashian’s driver Michael Madar, 40, and his brother Gary Madar, 27, being two of the arrests. There were reportedly 14 men and 3 women involved in the heist, with ages ranging from 23 – 72 years old. One of the men, named “Omar A.” or “Omar the Old” was allegedly being considered the “mastermind” behind the robbery, with his DNA found on some of the tape that Kardashian had been bound with during the robbery.

In a police report published via Le Journal du Dimanche, Kardashian had relayed the following information about the robbery:

I heard a noise at the door, like, footsteps, and I shouted to ask who was there, but no one answered … I called my bodyguard at 2:56 a.m. Then, beyond the sliding doors, I saw two people arrive with the gentleman from reception, and he was tied up. Both men were hooded, one had a ski mask and he had a cap and a jacket with ‘police’ on it. The second man had the same ‘police’ clothes, but did not have any ski mask … It was the one with the ski mask who stayed with me.

Kardashian continued:

He had a strong French accent and asked me for my ring [in English]. He looked at what was on the bedside table. It was worth $4 million. He took out a gun and I showed him the ring. He had gloves. He asked me where the jewels and the money were. And at that point, they tied me up and put plastic cables and scotch tape on my hands, and then taped my mouth and my legs … During the theft, they had the hotel’s mobile phone that did not stop ringing, and they spoke in French. I got the impression they were saying they had to leave.

After the robbery, Kardashian had a private plane waiting for her at Paris-Le Bourget Airport to take her back to the States.

Veteran Paris reporter Frederic Ploquin told Vanity Fair that Kardashian’s place in Paris is well-known to all, especially thieves. Ploquin explained:

They think they will be free of cameras, free to receive friends, visitors . . . but drivers, bodyguards, paparazzi, girl furnishers all . . . know about this place. That makes maybe hundreds of people who know about this place. This makes the investigation very complex. You have hundreds of suspects.

The Hotel de Pourtales is called the No Address Hotel and it is a historic private mansion, located at 7 Rue Tronchet. The mansion consists of luxury apartments with hotel-like accommodations, according to People. In order to stay at the hotel, you must sign in on a secure website with a passcode as it’s extremely exclusive. Kardashian’s husband Kanye West had been staying at the hotel for years and it appears that we may have seen it during the couple’s wedding episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. People reports that guests of the hotel have included Prince, Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Madonna.

Kim Kardashian’s Paris Jewelry: How Much Money Was Stolen?

In October 2016, Kim Kardashian-West was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, bound and had her mouth taped shut. In the above photo, Kardashian rocks a $4 million ring from husband Kanye West, who gifted her the piece of jewelry. Unfortunately, this was one of the jewelry items stolen from Kardashian during the robbery. The Mirror reports that a jewelry box of Kardashian’s was taken and another stolen item was a necklace with her son Saint’s name written in diamonds. In her statement to police after the robbery, Kardashian said that:

My Vuitton jewelry box was near my bag and, at that time, he said something to the other individual, shouting. In my jewelry box, there were two bracelets by Cartier, all with diamonds, a necklace by Jacob all in gold and diamond, diamond earrings by Lorraine Schwartz, and the others were by Yanina.

Kardashian also stated:

I also had just a cross-shaped diamond, by Jacob. A watch by Rolex all in yellow gold. There were two rings in yellow gold. I think they robbed me for $5 million. They didn’t rob my cash. They took my iPhone 6 … and the Blackberry.

So, how much is Kim Kardashian-West actually worth? According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kardashian’s last reported net worth was $150 million and her husband Kanye West is worth $145 million. In addition, Kardashian’s yearly salary for Keeping Up With the Kardashians is an estimated $50 million. Another major source of income for the star is her app, which in 2014, CNN reported made an estimated $700,000 per day. Kim Kardashian started bringing in a ton of money from social media in 2009 as Business Insider previously stated that she was making approximately $10,000 per tweet on her Twitter account, having companies pay her to tweet.

Kardashian and her family members also bring in a ton of money for their Instagram posts. Michael Heller, the CEO of digital marketing firm Talent Resources, tells Us Weekly that brands pay up to $500,000 for a social media ad campaign to Kardashian’s 94.8 million Instagram followers. Advertised products include weight-loss teas, clothing and other items. On the other hand, Heller said:

They only endorse what aligns with their lifestyle. They turn a lot down.

Unfortunately, posting some of her jewelry and other material items may have given thieves too much information about her possessions.

In addition to taking a hit of an estimated $10 million in jewelry from the Paris robbery, Kardashian has had a lot of expenses. She’s had to beef up security, which definitely costs money. And, at the end of 2016, she and Kanye West reportedly dished out $10 million in renovations for their home in Hidden Hills, California, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Previously, Kanye West was in the media for posting tweets, saying that he was actually in debt. West tweeted:

I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt … Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart … My dreams brought me into debt and I’m close to seeing the light of day.

On talk shows later on, Kardashian family members like Kris Jenner implied that this was not accurate and that West gets overly passionate at times.

Though Kanye West has expensive taste and enjoys spending money, his wife Kardashian has a lot of expenses of her own as well. For example, Business Insider reports that Kardashian actually spends $100,000 on a professional selfie re-toucher for her social media posts.

Are Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Really Getting Divorced?

Is Kimye headed for a split? Days after Kim Kardashian opened up about her traumatic robbery on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, tabloid magazine In Touch Weekly reported that her marriage to Kanye West is “finally over,” and that the two are headed for a whopping $300 million split.

An alleged source tells In Touch Weekly that “Just two months before their third anniversary, Kim Kardashian is pulling the plug on her marriage with Kanye.” They also went on to say that West reached his breaking point when his wife discussed her robbery experience on reality television. According to Gossip Cop, the rapper told her that “her experience was personal and warned her, ‘do not exploit this for ratings. She went directly against his wishes… they had a huge fight, and he stormed out.” This incident comes on the heels of West’s mental breakdown last November, which left him briefly hospitalized in Los Angeles.

Conversely, several publications (including The Inquisitr) have debunked the divorce claim, stating that the couple are actually “spending more and more time together and have been seen frequently in New York City and Los Angeles.” It’s tough to say where the two will go in the future, but for the time being, and based on debunked claims, it looks like Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are still going strong.
