Who Is The Concierge Involved In Kim Kardashian's Robbery? He Is Reportedly A "Key Witness"
In the days following Kim Kardashian's robbery in Paris on Sunday night, more details — and more questions — have come to light. By now it's known that the reality star was held at gunpoint (and allegedly bound at the hands and feet, fearing for her life) when she was robbed of reportedly over $10 million of jewelry by masked men who entered the luxury apartment at the Hôtel de Pourtalès. The intruders reportedly gained access to Kardashian's apartment by handcuffing the concierge and holding him at gunpoint, forcing him to lead them to the celebrity's residence. And now, according to TMZ, it appears that the concierge is a "key witness" in the Kardashian robbery — and it seems as if his involvement is raising some eyebrows.
Though the identity of the hotel worker has not yet been revealed, it is clear that he played a crucial role in the Kardashian robbery. TMZ reports that Kardashian spoke with Paris police on Tuesday, during which she reportedly revealed that she spoke to the concierge during the terrifying ordeal.
According to TMZ's sources, Kardashian told police that the handcuffed concierge "opened the door and led them [the robbers] up and was in there the whole time." During that time, she allegedly spoke to him and asked, "Are we gonna die?" to which he "calmly" replied, "I don't know."
Kardashian allegedly "made a point" to note how "calm" the concierge seemed, despite being held at gunpoint and handcuffed. She reportedly told the police that the thieves took the concierge with them when they finished robbing her, and dropped him off — still handcuffed — back into the lobby. A source who spoke with People told a similar story.
Bustle reached out to Kardashian's rep for comment about this TMZ report, who responded, "This is an active investigation. No comment."
"He had to let the robbers into Kim's apartment or they would have killed him," the insider said.
As previously reported, Kardashian and the Paris police believe that the robbery may have been an "inside job," TMZ claims. This is due to the fact that the burglars entered the KUTWK star's apartment soon after most of her friends had left the residence — and her bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, was out protecting Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian at a Paris nightclub. According to TMZ, the Kardashian family is "convinced someone tipped off the robbers to strike at precisely the moment they could get in and out without detection." Kardashian's rep had "no comment" to Bustle when contacted about these claims.
