Not adding up. Paris police believe that there are inconsistencies in the concierge’s account of what occurred the night of Kim Kardashian’s robbery this past Sunday, Us Weekly can exclusively reveal.
The unnamed staffer at the Hôtel de Pourtalès told authorities that the five assailants, who were dressed as policeman, buzzed the intercom and said “It’s urgent — we must see Ms. Kardashian.” When the concierge opened the door, he apparently said, they pointed a gun at his head and he was then forced to open Kardashian’s apartment with a single key.
“What’s confusing to police is how a low-ranking night staffer had such easy key access to the VIP apartments,” the source tells Us. Police “remain baffled at the apparent ease with which he was able to guide the robbers straight to the star’s bedroom.”
The nine apartments in the lavish estate have a variety of security protocols, the source explains. The insider believes that it’s “inconceivable” that the concierge could have gained access to Kardashian’s residence without breaking the door down, and there was no sign of forced entry.
As previously reported, the concierge was bound and gagged before the suspects confronted the 35-year-old reality star. She was then tied up and gagged herself and carried into the bathroom. The assailants stole more than $10 million worth of jewelry before escaping by bicycle.
Kardashian feared she would be raped during the scary incident. “They did not speak English. Kim was hysterically crying, begging for her life, telling them about her babies,” a second source previously told Us. “After they left she was able to wiggle her hands out of the tie and then she was able to get the rest of the stuff off of her.”
Kardashian then called security. The first source says that she even screamed for help from the apartment’s balcony. Her bodyguard Pascal Duvier and sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner — who were all out at a club together — then returned to the residence to comfort her.
Kim is now safe in NYC. According to the first source, she is still briefing detectives regularly on the phone as the investigation continues.
