We have heard all about Kim Kardashian's traumatic Paris robbery from the press, but now French police reports reveal the reality mogul's own words about the frightening ordeal she went through in October.
The French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche reportedly got hold of the police reports where Kim describes the incident in detail to the authorities and it verifies some of the more disturbing details, such as the 36 year old's near-naked state and the fact she was tied up.
According to the report, Kim spent the early part of the evening with her sister Kourtney Kardashian and stylist Simone Harouche who were getting ready to go to a party Kim wasn't attending. After they left, Kim went upstairs to work on her computer before being disturbed by hearing footsteps at the door.
In Kim's own words (translated from English to French for the police and then back to English again for the press):
"I heard a noise at the door, like footsteps, and I shouted, asking, ‘Who’s there?' No one answered. I called my bodyguard at 2:56 a.m. Through the door, I saw two people arrive, plus the night man who was tied up."

Kim described her attackers as carrying police paraphernalia, but it was a man wearing ski goggles who tied her up and spoke to her throughout the attack:
"It’s the one with the ski goggles who stayed with me. He demanded with a strong French accent, my ring. It was on the bedside table. It’s worth 4 million dollars. … I told him that I didn’t know, he took out a gun and I showed him the ring."
After Kardashian had been forced to identify the valuable ring, she was tied up and gagged with tape while they rifled through the rest of the star's belongings:
"They grabbed me and took me into the hallway. I was wearing a bathrobe, naked underneath. Then we went in the room again and they pushed me on the bed. And, it was this time, they tied me up with plastic cables and taped my hands, then they put tape over my mouth and my legs.”
The report also details the items that were reportedly stolen from Kim including:
- The $4 million engagement ring
- 2 diamond Cartier bracelets
- A gold and diamond Jacob necklace
- Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings
- A gold Rolex
Although the assailants managed to rob her of an estimated $5 million Kim stated that she "felt they were a bit inexperienced" because of the way she was tied up. Once they had stolen her belongings, the thieves then fled the scene.
17 people have since been arrested in connection with the robbery in France.
