Kim Kardashian was targeted because she ‘shows off too much’

She showed possession on social media

Thieves who robbed Kim Kardashian at gunpoint in Paris were targeting possessions seen on social media, police said after the multi-million pound jewellery raid.

The reality TV star left Paris on a private jet just hours after she was robbed of jewellery reportedly worth £9 million at an exclusive private apartment building.

Shocking new details emerged that she feared she was going to be raped by the intruders.

According to TMZ she was trying to call her bodyguard when it was taken from her. A friend, Simone Harouche, locked herself in another bathroom and called police.

Kardashian is then said to have screamed about her children as she begged for her life while bound at the wrists and ankles with zip ties and duct tape in the bath.

According to ‘People’, she then squeezed her hands free before screaming from the balcony.

Police in the French capital have described the incident as ‘extremely rare’ and said the robbers were focused on ‘possessions that had been seen and noticed via social media’.

Four days ago, Kardashian West posted a close-up photograph of a huge diamond ring on her left hand captioned with three diamond emojis.

The TV star, who was attending Paris Fashion Week, was ‘badly shaken but physically unharmed’ after masked men dressed as police officers robbed her.
