Kim Kardashian Paris robbery her own fault?



One thing the herd populace is told by police during every holiday season is to NOT post their holiday destination and time frame on social media in order not to alert the criminal element of society as to when the household would be ripe for the picking of valuables.

We also posted an article on why not to post one's picture of one's boarding pass, see link:

So, does this one simple rule also apply to people with more dollars than brain cells?

  • Could Kim Kardashian have brought this upon herself?
  •  Was it an 'inside' job?

  • Was her security detail flawed due to her being a 'tight arse' (Australian colloquial term for stingy)?

  • Would she be entitled to an insurance payout as a result of her own fault?
  • Was it a 'publicity stunt' - with those retards attention whores anything is possible?

Irrespective of how much you flaunt your riches in front of the heard populace non one really 'deserves' to be robbed at gunpoint.

See (text version) of article from news.com.au from 4 October 2016 of the headline:

Kim Kardashian reunites with Kanye West in New York as ex-bodyguard says Paris robbery was inside job

AS Kim Kardashian reunited with Kanye West in New York after being robbed at gunpoint in Paris, her former security guard said the jewellery heist was “a crime waiting to happen”.
The 35-year-old and her rapper husband were surrounded by dozens of security guards and police officers as they darted inside their Manhattan apartment on Monday afternoon.

The reality TV star fled France just hours after she was tied up and held at gunpoint by thieves dressed as cops who stole around $14 million in jewellery from her room at the exclusive Hotel de Pourtalès about 3am Monday local time.

The five attackers — wearing ski masks and clothes with police markings — also reportedly made off with two of her smartphones.

Kardashian’s bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, has come under fire for not being with Kardashian during her nightmarish ordeal. He was reportedly with her two sisters as they partied at a nightclub.

Kardashian was in the country for Paris Fashion Week, alongside mother Kris Jenner and sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.

GUARD DOWN: ‘Where was Pascal Duvier?’

HEIST ‘WAS CRIME WAITING TO HAPPEN’

Steve Stanulis, who provided security for Kimye during New York Fashion Week in February for 10 days, and worked with them again around the Met Gala in May, claims the heist was an inside job.

“This was a crime waiting to happen. Kim is lucky to be alive,” he told The New York Post.

“I would say it’s either an inside job or publicity stunt. That hotel is so secure, somebody must have tipped them off that she was alone inside, or shown them a way in.”

Stanulis, who was sacked by West for allegedly getting too close to his wife, said his former bosses don’t take their security as seriously as they should.

“When I worked with them, Kanye would ask me to walk 10 feet behind him, which makes it so hard for anyone working their security to do anything if someone lunges at them. There was numerous times he’d try to ditch his security. He’d jump in a car and tell me to take a taxi,” he said.

JEWELLERY HEISTS: Kim K joins elite list of victims

SOCIAL MEDIA: Celebs react to Kim K robbery

He continued: “They need to pay for an armed security guard. She almost got killed at gunpoint, because she didn’t want to pay for an extra armed and well-trained person. It takes one minute of dialogue to figure out if someone really is a cop, they should not have got in the building.

“Sadly, the only person to blame for this incident, is Kim Kardashian. She has tens of millions of dollars of jewellery, but she can’t pay for an armed guard to protect her? The fact that five days ago that someone broke through her security chain and tried to grab her, then this happened, shows her security is not strong enough, and this should be a wake-up call.”

He said Kardashian brought the robbery on herself: “Kim’s social media and her Snapchat is her undoing. When she is posting, ‘Here I am, and this is the $5 million ring I am wearing, here’s where I am going’, you are basically inviting someone to rob you.”

KARDASHIAN ‘BEGGED FOR HER LIFE’

Kardashian’s publicist said the star was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” after robbers tied her up in the bathroom of her Paris residence and put a gun to her head.

A Paris police source told Reuters that five attackers, wearing ski masks and clothes with police markings, struck early on Monday morning.

Two of the men entered the apartment after threatening the night guard with a hand gun. Kardashian, who has two young children with West, was not beaten but the robbers put a handgun against her temple before tying her up, the source said. iTELE television said she had been tied up with packing tape.

When the thieves left with “all her jewellery”, Kardashian “broke out of her bindings and got out,” the source told E! News.

E! News, whose US network broadcasts the Keeping Up With the Kardashians, quoted a source close to Kardashian as saying she feared for her life.

“She begged for them to let her live and (said) she has babies at home ... She thought they were for sure going to kill her,” the unidentified source told E! News. 

The robbers stole a box containing jewels worth between $7.3 million to $8.7 million and a ring worth about $5.7 million, the Paris police source said.

French police are now questioning a photographer who posed as a police officer to spy on Kardashian in a restaurant earlier in the week, The Sun reports. The snapper’s identity has not been released.

INSIDE THE LUXURY APARTMENT

The New York Post reports the apartment where the heist went down is owned by Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West. Kardashian reportedly spent a lot of time there before her 2014 wedding to the rapper.

According to another insider, that’s why the robbery could be “was so well planned out.”
“They knew exactly what room, etc,” they said.


The complex, known as ‘No address France’ is a favourite of other celebrities.

Footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic also stayed in a $30,345 suite with his family when he first moved to Paris St. Germain, according to Le Huffington Post.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Madonna and Prince are among some of the other famous names to stay at the complex, which has secret exits for the A-list clientele.

REALITY STAR FLEES PARIS AFTER ATTACK

Hours after the shocking attack, Kardashian boarded a private jet back to the US with her assistant and bodyguard. The social media entrepreneur was pictured walking to the plane with her head covered with a black scarf.

“She’s very pleased to be heading back to the United States,” a source close to the case said. “She has given a full statement for the police.”

Kendall Jenner left Paris separately on Monday, E! News reported.
