Kim Kardashian’s Hotel Concierge Releases Statement About The Robbery & Directly Addresses The Reality Star
Another person is speaking out about Kim Kardashian's robbery and this time around it's the hotel concierge who was reportedly held at gunpoint and ordered by the robbers to open up the reality star's room. According to French magazine Closer, the hotel concierge wrote Kim Kardashian an open letter detailing why he remained calm during the incident and also to send her well wishes. Per Closer, the letter reads, "Dear Kim, when you feel the cold steel of a gun at your neck, it is the moment when remaining calm can mean the difference of life or death, both our lives. I hope you are feeling better."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the unnamed hotel concierge told police that five men spoke French "without an accent" and asked for "the wife of the rapper," but never asked for Kardashian by name. THR also reports that the hotel concierge has faced much criticism for leading the thieves to Kardashian's room, not to mention the fact that he allegedly remained calm throughout it all. His statement above seems to be his way of explaining why he remained calm.
People reported Wednesday that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star spoke to police over the phone Tuesday and provided further details about the robbery, in addition to the hotel concierge. Reportedly, Kardashian said the concierge was handcuffed when he opened the door to her room and that he was present during the entire armed robbery. The sources also claim that Kardashian told police she spoke with the concierge during the robbery and asked if they were going to die, to which he said he didn't know. Allegedly, Kardashian also told police how calm the concierge was throughout the ordeal.
TMZ also reported that the hotel concierge is considered a "key witness" and that during Kardashian's Tuesday interview with police she allegedly "made a point" to note how "calm" he seemed, despite being held at gunpoint and handcuffed. At the time of TMZ's report, Bustle reached out to Kardashian's rep for comment, who responded, "This is an active investigation. No comment."
The Paris Police Prefecture has told Bustle in regards to the robbery news: "We are not able to respond to your request because a judicial inquiry is opened only the Paris Prosecutor's office which can communicate to the press and the public and to not interfere with ongoing investigations."
