Kim Kardashian is perhaps the most traumatized celeb at the moment following a gunpoint attack in Paris. The news of the frightening ordeal in which the star was robbed off a jewelry box worth $6.7 million in jewelry and a ring worth $4 million spread like bush fire prompting the return of Khloe Kardashian in Los Angeles. She returned home immediately after learning about her sister’s fate.
Khloe was away in Cleveland supporting her beau Tristan Thompson on the basketball court in preparation for the annual Wine and Gold scrimmage. In casual black workout clothes, she left an LA studio looking distressed but with a heightened security detail. However, Kim’s family was with her in Paris attending the City of Light in honor of Fashion Week.
Khloe Kardashian in Los Angeles: How did her sister’s attack occur?
The return of Khloe Kardashian in Los Angeles was a sign of solidarity with her 35-year-old who had to ensure one of the scariest situations in her lifetime. The attack happened shortly after her dinner, which was hosted by designer Azzedine Alaïa. The five men gang, which poised like police officers found its way into her room, bound her with duct tape before gagging and locking her up in a bathroom.
A source told New York Post “She had to plead and beg for her life, telling them she was a mother, telling them about her kids”
All her pleas went in vain. All they kept demanding for was the $4m, 20-carat Lorraine Schwartz ring, which was a gift from her husband, Kanye West. Apparently, Kardashian’s former security guard was noted lamenting that the jewelry heist was ‘a crime waiting to happen’.
Kanye West Called off his show
West was at the time of the attack headlining at Meadows Music & Arts Festival in Queens, New York. The 39-year was upset, and it took him a few seconds to understand what her wife who was at the time of calling her very hysterical was saying. Nonetheless, he left immediately.
All he could afford to say to the fans was “I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Family emergency, I have to stop the show.”
Kim has always known the threats are out there, but it had never crossed her mind that she would one day be a victim. It will perhaps take her the longest to come to terms with the fate. Nonetheless, she is in good comfort of her family, her husband and Khloe Kardashian in Los Angeles. She has also recorded statements with the police who have the promised to hunt down the attackers.
