Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in a rented luxury mansion in Paris early Monday morning, and according to a CNN report, the robbery was an elaborate operation.

The French Interior Ministry told the outlet that Kardashian West’s rented mansion was seized by five men dressed as police officers.

The men reportedly handcuffed the mansion’s concierge after threatening him with a gun and then forced him to open Kardashian West’s private apartment.

At that point, two of the men held a gun to Kardashian West’s head and tied up and locked the reality-TV star in a bathroom. The robbers then took “two cell phones and jewellery worth millions of dollars,” and no shots were fired.

In total, the ring and box of assorted jewellery that the robbers stole were worth up to $11 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Hollywood Reporter also said the security guard was left tied up in a stairwell.

Kardashian West immediately left Paris following the incident, and a spokeswoman said that she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed.”
