Kim Kardashian 'had a gun held to her head as she was tied up and locked in a bathroom'

This morning we were all shocked to hear that reality star Kim Kardashian had been robbed at gunpoint in her swanky Paris apartment.

Kim’s husband, Kanye West, abruptly ended his New York concert to fly out to his distraught wife, with it being believed that the couple’s two children – three-year-old North and 10-month-old Saint – weren’t with Kim at the time.

Now, alleged details of Kim’s terrifying ordeal have emerged, with it being reported that the 35 year old had a gun held to her head as she was bundled into a bathroom by the robbers, who left with millions of pounds worth of jewellery.

It has been said that five armed men disguised as police officers donned masks after they forcibly handcuffed the building’s night security guard – with the group gaining access after they forced him to direct them to Kim’s apartment.

The Mirror report that once they gained access to Kim’s room they “tied her up, held a gun to her head and locked her in a bathroom with her bodyguard”, the group then escaped on bicycles.

A spokesperson for Kim confirmed that the horrifying incident had taken place, saying in a statement: “Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint insider her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers.

“She is badly shaken but physically unharmed.”

Kanye was informed of the robbery whilst performing at the Meadows Festival in Queens, with the rapper apologising to his confused fans as he quickly left the stage saying that he’d suffered “a family emergency”.

The value of the items that the thieves stole is thought to be around the €10million (£8.7million) mark, but we’re sure that Kim is just glad to have escaped the ordeal physically unscathed.
