Two of the robbers, who were wearing police-branded armbands, reportedly tied up Kardashian West, who was in the French capital for Paris fashion week, and locked her in the bathroom while they ransacked the flat.
The star’s publicist said although Kardashian West was not beaten, the men had held a gun to her head leaving her “badly shaken but physically unharmed”.
After giving a statement to police about her ordeal, Kardashian West, 35, was immediately taken to a waiting private jet at the small Le Bourget airport on the outskirts of Paris to be flown back to the US.
