Captured! 16 People Arrested In The Kim Kardashian Paris Robbery

Posted On : 01/09/2017

Do you remember when Kim Kardashian was robbed?

On October 3rd of last year, the 36 year-old mom of 2 was in Paris with her entourage for fashion week. Suddenly, a gang of armed and masked men had burst into her residence and robbed her of her jewelry. It was reported that her jewelry was worth 9 million dollars.

Not only did the masked men rob her at gunpoint, they tied her up and threw her in the bathtub.

The suspects, some disguised as police officers, fled from the scene on foot and on bicycles.

Many people speculated that she was lying and that she was creating drama to increase ratings for her family’s reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.


While the show returns in March, a new teaser for the family’s reality show was released showing Kim in tears as she relived the night that she was robbed.

She revealed to her two sisters that she thought she was going to die that night.

They’re going to shoot me in the back. There’s no way out.

Continuing to open up to her sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, she added that discussing the event is difficult as it brings up terrible memories.

It makes me so upset to think about it.

Now, just days after the trailer was released, an arrest has been made.


Days after the attack, a gemstone was found outside the Paris apartment. Apparently, it had been left by the thieves. The French website bfmtv reports that DNA traces were found on an item of her jewelry that was recovered after the robbery.

Because of the DNA traces that were found on some of the stolen jewelry, 16 people have been arrested.
