Read Kim Kardashian's terrifying statement on robbery

Chris Pizzello

THE terrifying moment Kim Kardashian was confronted by masked robbers in her Paris apartment has been relived in her own words after her police statement was leaked to the media.

The reality TV star's statement was obtained by the French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche.

In it Kardashian describes how she "heard a noise at the door".

She told police that she "shouted to ask who was there but no one responded."


The 36-year-old said that she saw two men appear at the door along with the building's doorman.

She said:

"Both men were hooded, one had a ski mask and he had a cap and a jacket with 'Police' on it."

"The individual with the ski goggles rips out my BlackBerry phone."

She described one of the robbers as a "European-type individual" who spoke to her in French and was skinny and dressed in all black.

She said she was grabbed by the robbers and taken out to the hallway.

"I was in a bathrobe, naked underneath.

We went back to the bedroom and they pushed me onto the bed.

"We then went back to the bedroom and they pushed me onto the bed.

"And at that point they tied me up and put plastic cables and scotch tap on my hands, and then taped my mouth and my legs.

"They took me to my bathroom, more specifically in my bathtub."

The statement's publication comes just two days after a French judge charged the alleged mastermind of the Paris heist.

Sixty-year-old Aomar A. was among six suspects charged on Friday over the October 3 robbery during which the celebrity was bound and gagged at gunpoint, then locked in a bathroom at the luxury residence where she was staying during Paris Fashion Week.

A total of 10 people have now been charged, including five accused of playing a direct role in robbing Kardashian of jewellery worth some nine million euros ($9.5 million).

The mother-of-two, who is set to travel to France to give evidence against them, gave her police statement during a 4.30am interview with Paris detectives just hours after the robbery.

She said that the robbers demanded several times that she give them her diamond engagement ring and when she claimed she didn't know where it was they "took out a gun" and she "showed him the ring".

As soon as they were gone, Kardashian easily broke free from her restraints, telling police, "I realised they were a bit young because of the way they strapped me."
