UPDATE: Kim Kardashian’s BFF Jonathan Cheban visited the reality star at her New York City apartment on Tuesday, October 4th. On the way in, he was asked how his friend is doing after being robbed at gunpoint. “Not so good,” he told reporters. He is the first to speak out from the Kardashian-Jenner inner circle since the attack.

Wow–it doesn’t get more terrifying than this: while in town for Paris Fashion Week, Kim Kardashian was held up at gunpoint by 5 men dressed as police officers and robbed of $10M in jewelry, including her wedding ring. Yikes!

The incident happened at around 2:30AM on Monday morning, after the men were able to gain access to the reality star’s rented apartment at the Hotel de Pourtales. According to police reports, the men overcame an overnight guard, obtained Kim’s key and found the apartment within the luxury rental mansion. Once inside, the men tied Kim up at gunpoint, put her in a bathtub and fled with the $4.5 million ring and other jewelry worth $5.6 million.

Kanye West, who was performing at the Meadows Festival in Queens, NY on Sunday night, was notified of the incident and abruptly left the stage siting a “family emergency.” Luckily, their kids North and Saint were not at the residence where the incident occurred and are reported safe.

Kim has since fled Paris in a private jet, and is “badly shaken but physically unharmed.” This story is still developing!
