Was the Kim Kardashian Paris Heist Just Another Stunt? Read what Adam Khan has to say about it.
We are all aware of what happened a few weeks back to Kimmy K. If you happen to live under a rock and don’t know the details of what went down in Paris, then guess what? You are in for a big one! (And also, you need to work on your Social Media game). On October 3rd, Kim Kardashian was robbed, gagged and held at gun-point in her own apartment. Apparently, two armed men dressed as policemen forcefully entered and threatened the reality TV star and stole an approximate $10 MILLION worth of jewelry, including her $4m engagement ring which she was flaunting on Snapchat a little while before the attack took place.
All respect to the reality TV star, but one seems to ponder; was it real? This isn’t the first time the Kardashians have faked something in order to get more views and more publicity and of course to get more spice and sugar for their TV show “Keeping up with the Kardashians”. There are many things that serve their purpose as cliffhangers in this event, and we are going to break it down.
Firstly, let’s just start off by saying that Kim is one of the most renowned celebs of the world. She was bound to have security with her at all times. Never has she moved around without a personal guard and so was the case here. Her bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, was on guard and apparently was nowhere on the scene of the crime for a long time. Chances that he would’ve walked in on them were low, but he could’ve seen them leaving or at least heard some form of noises. But it seems that the bodyguard seems to have been banished.
Secondly, the fact that $10m worth of jewelry was stolen and is still off the grid is pretty interesting as such huge transactions made by robbers, who were apparently very unskilled according to sources, is very rare and uncommon. Apparently, while fleeing the scene, they managed to drop some of the diamonds on the way, which were found by a passerby and returned to Kim. When I mentally play out this heist, I can’t help but see a Mr. Bean like cartoon character shoving diamonds into a sack with a giant $ on it – because it’s starting to sound more and more like a bad made for TV movie than anything else. Even the Bling Ring girls knew better…
Apart from all that, we see that the victim was left unharmed. Apparently the robbers were merciful and didn’t even feel the need to knock her out. She was left unharmed and untouched, which seems a bit odd. Really, not even some rope burns from being tied up? Suspicious…
The Kardashians are people at the end of the day, but they’re people who love drama and fame, the two things that make people do crazy things. We’ve seen things go down like this for the Kardashians before (cue Kris Humphrey montage) and we will see it again. Sometimes Kim forgets that she stars in a damn reality show and she has cameras all around her at all times. So, apparently it would’ve been quite the task to do what was did without leaving proof behind. Maybe it actually happened. Maybe it didn’t. Maybe Kim Kardashian flawlessly executed another hoax and we all fell for it. Guess we will never know. Just another one of the things that we love about Hollywood…Secrets.
