Kim Kardashian robbery: Thieves asked for 'the wife of the rapper'


Further details about the thieves who broke into Kim Kardashian's apartment early Monday morning have emerged as Paris police have devoted considerable manpower to finding the five men that made off with her valuables.

The concierge at the Pourtales building, known as the "No Address Hotel," told police that the five men spoke French "without an accent," and asked for "the wife of the rapper" and not Kardashian by name.

The reality TV star was held at gunpoint and tied up in the bathroom of her luxury apartment between 2:30 and 3:00 a.m. local time on Monday morning, before the thieves got away with roughly $11 million (€10 million) in jewelry.

Three of the men acted as lookouts while two entered her apartment to take the jewelry. They were further identified as between 40 and 50 years of age.

The concierge has faced criticism in the media for leading the gunmen to her room and reportedly remaining calm throughout the ordeal. He released a statement to French gossip magazine Closer, reading: "Dear Kim, When you feel the cold of the gun on your neck, calm is the only way to stay alive, for you and me," he said, finishing with: "I hope you are getting better."

CCTV footage viewed earlier this week from nearby stores did not yield any clues or further descriptions of the men as it only showed their reflections and not a direct shot. CCTV showing a suspicious limo has not yet revealed any additional information, and it is still believed the men escaped by bicycle.

There was no CCTV footage from inside the building and Paris streets are relatively free from police surveillance, with roughly 1,300 cameras citywide, as compared to London's 75,000.

French news channel BFMTV reported that the incident has been given the highest priority by the Paris police, mobilizing up to 100 officers within a special anti-theft investigation section.
