Following being held at gunpoint
in the early hours of Monday morning in Paris, Kim Kardashian is now holed up in her New York apartment where her husband Kanye West, mother Kris Jenner, and close friend Jonathan Cheban have been spotted coming and going.
Unsurprisingly, Karl Lagerfeld weighed in on The Incident shortly after the Chanel show at PFW. "I don't understand why she was in a hotel with no security and things like this, " he said. "If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room. You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you."
On the subject of the robbery having occurred in Paris, Karl said "Image-wise I think it is very bad. We all make efforts to make Paris appealing and then, apparently [the robbers] were people from the the east. Eastern Europe."
Karl is however, sympathetic towards Kim and has shared an image of himself on Instagram holding a handwritten note which reads "Dearest Kim, we are all with you. Love, Karl."
Security expert Devin Tullis told HarpersBazaar.com on Monday that with the Kardashians, "...attention is their business. It's a catch-22."
"All this Chanel clothing and things like that highlight how wealthy they are is a huge target for people trying to do harm," he said. "It's already all over TMZ, it's already all over the news."
It has been revealed that neither of Kim and Kanye's two children were present at the property during the robbery. Kim was alone in the apartment save for her friend and stylist Simone Harouche who locked herself in a bathroom downstairs upon hearing the commotion.
An insider speaking to In Touch Weekly said that Kim has been "gagged with duct tape wrapped around her head."
Additionally, a source has told People magazine that "She was hysterical but not screaming because she knew she had to keep quiet to survive. The reports of her fear of being raped are real. She really did think she was going to be raped. She had a gun to her head the whole time."
Kim was later flown back to the U.S via private jet with her mother, Corey Gamble, and plenty of security, landing at New Jersey's Teterboro airport.
Kanye has rescheduled two upcoming dates for his Saint Pablo Tour and Kendall Jenner missed walking for several other fashion houses during PFW in order to return to the U.S.
