Kim Kardashian has now returned to the United States safe and sound after being held at gunpoint in Paris, but more details about her ordeal have been released – and it sounds even more terrifying that we first thought. Poor Kimmy!

According to reports about the break-in – which was in an apartment Kanye owns in Paris – Kim was woken at 3am by five armed masked men who were disguised as police officers.

The men then bound and gagged the reality star, locked her in the bathroom, then fled with two iPhones and nearly $11 million in jewellery. And it’s thought that her 20-carat engagement ring was among the stolen goods!

According to People, Kim left Paris as quickly as she could by private jet, and was met by her worried hubby Kanye West in New York City.

The couple returned to their apartment surrounded by swarms of security. According to Gunilla Ebers, the director of an art studio across the street, the scene was “out of control. Police barricades, a couple of police cars, secret service and 15 big, black Cadillac Escalades.”

The neighbour said that the pair rushed in, adding: “[Kim] seemed very subdued. They’ve been staying here for a long time and she’s seemed more animated and taken selfies with fans, but today was straight in. Kanye West looked very concerned.”

Kim’s new 20-carat engagement ring was reportedly one of the pieces stolen. 

A source close to the family told People shortly after the incident that Kim was “very upset and couldn’t wait to leave Paris. She gave a statement to the police and left right after. She got robbed of her jewelry but doesn’t care. She is just happy to be alive.”

“She has never been in a more frightening situation. She still can’t believe it happened.”

Fans are asking where Kim’s bodyguard Pascal Duvier was at the time of the attack, and it’s now been revealed that he was out looking after Kim’s sisters, Kourtney and Kendall, at the nightclub L’Arc.

“It wouldn’t be that strange for Pascal to be dispatched to be with Kourtney or the other family members once Kim was ‘safely’ in her residence,” a friend of the family told People.

At the time of the robbery, Kim’s hubby Kanye was mid-concert in NY, before cutting the gig short because of a “family emergency.”

Before he was by her side, a source told People that Kim “was just hysterical when she talked to Kanye” and that Kanye “wanted to get to [Kim] as soon as he could. He told her that he couldn’t care less about the jewelry; he’s just thankful that she’s okay.”

Another insider revealed: “This was one of Kim’s biggest fears. She’s always known the threats are out there, but for something to happen, it’s almost unimaginable. It’s going to take her a very long time to feel safe again.”
