October 3rd was just like any other day in France. Paris Fashion Week held their last shows of the fall season where celebrities from around the world attended. Late that night, after Kim Kardashian-West celebrated with sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, she decided to call it a night and head back to the No Address Hotel in Paris. After security guard, Pascal, made sure she was safely inside, he left with the rest of the gang for a night out. This was not something that was unnatural as this specific Hotel was almost a second home to husband, Kanye West and had been for years.

What seemed like a quiet evening, Snapchatting with brother Rob Kardashian and sister-in-law-to-be, Blac Chyna, TMZ let us all know that is was not such a quiet night after all. Five gunmen, posing as cops, entered the Hotel and managed to tie up the concierge and make their way up to Kim’s room. They busted in, held her at gunpoint, tied her up, gagged her, put her in a bathtub and locked the door and managed to get away with around $11million in jewelry. This included her brand new wedding ring she flaunted on Instagram a few days before. Kim managed to escape and yell for help when they left, not before begging for her life and crying to them that she had kids back home.

Since the incident, Kim was rushed out of Paris, after making the decision to head back to the states. Husband Kanye West, left in the middle of a show in New York City. He apologized to fans and left to to meet his wife back at their apartment in New York City. Kids, North and Saint had been safe with relatives and now where near the incident. For days, the only sister posting on any social media was younger babe, Kylie for her lip kit launch on October 4. Kendall and Khloe slowly lingered in on Tuesday, October 5, followed by sister Kourtney who posted a scripture following the incident, but still no word from Kim. The social media Selfie Queen seems to still be in hiding.

Stories have emerged of speculation everywhere from being a setup, an inside job, a stage robbery and even a KUWTK show cancellation but still no word from Kim. Insiders have said that she was not physically harmed, but emotionally scarred, and just wants to be with her family. I think we can respect that.
But what happened that night, has she learned her “lesson” about posting her wealth online? Karl Lagerfeld seems to think that if you display your wealth, you shouldn’t be surprised if you get robbed. He posted a photo after to show support for Kim, despite his comment. He was also concerned about the security of the hotel she was in.

Waiting for her to re-emerge on Social Media, we just have to sit back and wait for a statement from Kim, herself, but if we know Kim, we should know it’s going to be something unexpected and hopefully soon. Prayers to the family.
