Poor Kim Kardashian is still in shock and recovering after being robbed at gunpoint in Paris, but now she’s facing even more stress – as sceptical fans accuse her of faking the ordeal all for ratings!

The reality star was left begging for her life after five armed gunman posing as policeman broke into her Paris apartment in the middle of the night, bounding and gagging her and locking her in the bathroom before making off with two iPhones and $11 million worth of jewellery!

A rep for Kim said she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed”, but fans have flooded social media with claims that it was all simply a publicity stunt for the mum-of-two – who had been courting plenty of attention during Paris Fashion Week in the days leading up to the robbery.

One Twitter user wrote, “Why do I have a feeling this Kim Kardashian story is a conspiracy theory lol”, while another wrote, “Kim Kardashian probably set up this gun point story. These people will do anything for ratings and money.”

Others made jokes about the serious situation, with one Twitter user mocking, “Honestly, “found bound and gagged”, sounds like a typical Monday for Kim Kardashian, no?”

But Kimmy’s celeb friends have come out in force to defend the star, with James Corden writing, “People making jokes about @KimKardashian tonight would do well to remember that she’s a mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend.Be nice or shut up.”

Never one to shy away from a fight on social media, Kim’s pal Chrissy Teigen slated the critics – telling them off for making jokes about being held at gunpoint.

She wrote, “Some shit just isn’t funny. I see you trying, but it isn’t.”

And while Piers Morgan has done his share of criticising Kim in the past, he tweeted sympathetically, “Feel very sorry for . Must have been a terrifying experience. .”

Hang in there, Kimmy!
