Kim Kardashian was “bound and gagged” in a Paris hotel on Sunday evening while being held up at gunpoint by five armed men dressed as policemen. While the hotel itself is known for its discretion when hosting celebrities, one has to wonder exactly how the thieves tracked down Kardashian’s exact location. The Kardashians have publicly expressed anxiety that Snapchat could be revealing their locations in the past.
Let’s start with the facts. The reality TV star was in the city for Paris Fashion Week and staying at her and Kanye West’s private residence in the Hotel de Pourtalès. Kardashian spent her evening at a Givenchy event and was apparently alone in her room when the assailants dressed as police officers forced the concierge to open the door to her room. Then, the thieves put a gun to Kardashian’s head before they bound and gagged her and put her in the bathtub. The masked men then stole more than $10 million in jewelry including a wedding ring purchased by West. After they left, Kardashian was able to free herself and call for help. The thieves remain at large.
