NEW YORK (AP) — A tearful Kim Kardashian West breaks her silence on her Paris robbery in a new teaser for the family’s reality show, telling two of her sisters her thoughts at the time: “They’re going to shoot me in the back. There’s no way out.”
She’s also seen on the short clip released Friday by E! ahead of the upcoming March season sobbing on the phone over husband Kanye West‘s hospitalization in November.
“Don’t scare me, please. What’s going on,” Kardashian West said. “I think he really needs me, and I have to go home.”
Kardashian West was bound, gagged and held at gunpoint in October inside a Paris hotel room by masked men who stole jewelry and escaped. She recalls the incident in the clip to sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, adding: “It makes me so upset to think about it.”
Her rapper husband was admitted to UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles for sleep deprivation and exhaustion, later canceling his Saint Pablo tour. It was unclear where Kardashian West was at the time she learned the news.
PARIS (AP) — French police arrested 16 people Monday in connection with the October theft of more than $10 million worth of jewelry from Kim Kardashian West.
Paris police officials said the arrests took place starting around 6 a.m. in different locations in the Paris region. The suspects can be held for up to 96 hours before police must either charge them or let them go.
On Oct. 3, robbers forced their way into the private Paris residence where Kardashian West was staying, tied her up, locked her in a bathroom and held her at gunpoint before making off with her jewelry. The reality TV star was in Paris attending fashion week shows.
Media reports said police tracked down the suspects through DNA evidence found at the residence. An official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t allowed to speak publicly about the investigation said many were already well known for robbery and other crimes.
Earlier this month, the starlet broke her silence on the robbery in a new teaser for the family’s reality show, telling two of her sisters her thoughts at the time: “They’re going to shoot me in the back. There’s no way out.”
Police said the thieves stole a jewelry box containing valuables worth 6 million euros ($6.7 million) as well as a ring worth 4 million euros ($4.5 million).
At the time, a spokeswoman for Kardashian West said she was badly shaken but physically unharmed. The robbery raised new concerns about security in the French capital after a string of deadly extremist attacks.
