Drama always seems to follow Kim Kardashian, but this time, it almost took her life. The reality star faced a harrowing ordeal as armed men entered her hotel room, held her up at gunpoint and stole $10 million worth of jewelry. The 35-year-old entrepreneur, who was gagged and tied up in the bathroom, managed to wriggle out of her ties and scream for help.
Investigation is underway and police are piecing together the details of what happened that night. So far, this is what we know of the terrifying jewelry heist.
1. Kim attended the Balenciaga show.
Just hours before the mugging, Kim was spotted attending the Balenciaga show at Paris Fashion Week with her bodyguard Pascal Duvier. The reality star looked stylish in a trench coat and even went au naturele with her makeup.

2. She Snapchatted with Chyna.
Her last possible conversation before the robbery was with future sister-in-law Blac Chyna, who was having a baby shower back in Los Angeles. Kim uploaded a snapchat video and she was wearing a bathrobe, looking like she was already getting ready to sleep.
3. Kim’s wedding ring was taken.
One of the jewelry pieces that was taken was Kim’s Lorraine Schwartz wedding ring, which is valued at $4.5 million. The massive diamond ring is always seen on Kim’s finger, and she often showcases the stunning jewel on Instagram. According to experts, there’s a slim chance that the ring will be recovered. It is very likely that the diamonds will be broken up before they are sold on the black market.

4.Everyone else was partying.
During the robbery, which happened at around 2:30am, Kim was alone in the room while her sisters Kourtney, Kendall and friends were out partying in L’Arc nightclub. Kim chose to rest after attending a fashion gala instead of staying up late. Another friend, Simon Harouche, was inside the apartment during the incident, but locked herself in a downstairs bathroom when she heard the commotion.

5. No more social media?
According to her close friends and family members, the terrifying incident left Kim traumatized, and has now made her question her activity on social media. Reportedly, Kim has vowed to lay off on posting about her wealth on social media. She has decided to take a month off from work and hasn’t posted anything online since the incident happened. If Kim completely cuts herself off on social media, this is definitely going to change the dynamics of her life since she is infamous for oversharing in Instagram. Could this be the end of her selfies?
