Kim Kardashian Concierge Key Witness in Robbery

10/5/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1004-kim-kardashian-tmz-12The concierge who was taken up Kim Kardashian's private elevator and opened the door to a $10 million jewelry heist has become the critical witness ... sources connected to the case tell TMZ. 

We're told Kim has downloaded Paris cops about her interactions with the concierge. We've learned on Tuesday Kim had an extensive interview with cops by phone and told them the following:

-- The concierge was handcuffed when he opened the door to her apartment.

-- As she put it, "He opened the door and led them [the robbers] up and was in there the whole time."

-- Kim told police she engaged the concierge in conversation, saying, "Are we gonna die?" He calmly responded, "I don't know."

-- Kim, we're told, made a point to cops that the concierge was extremely calm, despite being cuffed and held at gunpoint.

-- Kardashian says when the robbers left the apartment they took the concierge with them and deposited him in the lobby where his hands were still cuffed.


Jennifer Tilly Back from Paris ... Feeling Lucky, Bad for Kim K.

10/5/2016 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Tilly was in Paris when the Kim Kardashian robbery went down, and she says most of the city ain't exactly reeling after the huge international news.

We got Jennifer at LAX right after her return from Paris. She's not really one to scare easily (umm, see 'Chucky') ... so you can tell she was shaken up when she heard what happened to Kim ... in fact, she feels bad for her.

However, the City of Light? Not so much.

As mademoiselle Tilly puts it ... zee French love zee drama!

Kim K. Robbery Supreme Court Justice Throws Major Shade

10/4/2016 12:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1004-kim-kardashian-Justice-Stephen-Breyer-04Kim Kardashian's armed robbery might be a total fabrication according to a U.S. Supreme Court Justice ... who actually brought up the incident during oral arguments.

The SUPCO was hearing a case on Tuesday where a guy from Cali is arguing it wasn't bank fraud when he drained someone's bank account ... because the bank's money is insured.

Justice Stephen Breyer jumped on the opportunity to show off his pop culture prowess, saying ... "Even Kardashian's thief, if there is one, believes that all that jewelry is insured. So, it's not theft?"

Breyer extended his metaphor, saying even if the Kardashian krooks posed as jewelry cleaners ... "Wouldn't you think that was fraud?" He went on to make a crack about her jewelry possibly being on loan, and not hers at all ... metaphorically speaking.

The good news for Kim -- one of the 8 most powerful people, arguably, in America knows about your ordeal. Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to buy it.

Kim Kardashian Ring Can Be Tracked But Crooks Still Have Upper Hand

10/4/2016 10:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1003_kim_kardashian_ring_infphotoKim Kardashian's confident she'll get back her multi-million dollar ring because it's very rare with unique identifiers.

Sources close to Kim tell TMZ ... she believes if anyone tries to sell the ring they'll find it. The police report she filed includes the diamond's inscription number and other markers that will raise red flags if it ends up on the market. 

The Gemological Institute of America says inscribed diamonds have a microscopic number laser-inscripted on the girdle of the stone. Once a police report is filed, any lost diamonds would be flagged in the system, and if they pop up for a cleaning, grading or possible sale ... police are called.

Even if the inscription is scratched off, rings like Kim's can be identified by special internal characteristics of the diamond ... according to the GIA.

It's not foolproof, of course. Big diamonds can be crushed into several pieces so they're less traceable -- and if crooks avoid legit jewelers ... there's less chance anyone reports a run-in with the stolen rock. 

Bottom line: Kim needs the thieves to make a dumb move in order to get back the diamond.


Kim Kardashian Cops Come Up Dry on Surveillance Video

10/4/2016 7:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1004-kim-kardashian-tmz-06The Kim Kardashian robbery will not be solved by fingering the culprits on video ... because a search for surveillance footage has come up dry.

Sources connected to the case tell us ... there was no surveillance video inside or outside the hotel premises.  

The only video available is police surveillance footage. Problem is, we're told the camera doesn't face the front of the building and the robbers evaded the lens.

We know police had canvassed the area looking for video from nearby businesses but came up dry.

TMZ has learned only 1 cell phone was stolen from Kim's apartment, not 2 as widely reported. We're told the phone in question did not have "compromising information" and was remotely wiped.


Kim Kardashian and Paris Cops Robbery Smells Like Inside Job

10/4/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1003-kim-kardashian-circle-of-friends-fun-art-GETTY-TMZ-01The Kim Kardashian robbery reeks of an inside job ... sources say that's what Paris cops think.

Sources involved in the case tell us ... police and the Kardashian family don't believe it was a coincidence that Kim was bodyguard-less at the time the robbers showed up and somehow made their way into her apartment ... they think the robbers were tipped off it was the right time to strike. 

There was a very small window when the robbers had easy access. Kim had friends over until shortly before the incident went down. Kim's bodyguard was always by her side -- to the point Kim joked that it got annoying -- except for the few hours he left to protect Kourtney and Kendall in a nearby nightclub

The Kardashians are in no way suggesting the bodyguard was in on it ... in fact, they say they know he wasn't. But they are convinced someone tipped off the robbers to strike at precisely the moment they could get in and out without detection.

As we reported ... robbers confronted the concierge at gunpoint in the lobby and he let them up to Kim's unit. We're told when the robbers left with the jewelry, they took the concierge back downstairs.

We're told if there was a tip-off person, there's a long suspect list ... there are multiple units in the building and lots of people involved in Paris Fashion Week knew Kim's comings and goings. 

Our sources say cops are in the process of checking phone records of various people in and around the building to track suspicious activity.

Kim Kardashian Blow-By-Blow During Robbery ... I Feared Rape

10/3/2016 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1003-kim-kardashian-tmzKim Kardashian was ordered out of bed by masked men she initially thought were going to rape her.

Our sources say ... Kim was lying in bed with only her robe on when she heard boots pounding up the stairs of her 2 story apartment.  

We're told Kim saw at least one masked man and another wearing a police hat through a sliding glass door. She knew something was amiss, so she rolled off the bed and tried dialing her bodyguard on her cell phone.

Before she could finish dialing one of the men yanked the phone out of her hands. They zip tied her hands with plastic handcuffs and duct taped her to make it more secure. We're told one of the men grabbed her by the ankles ... Kim told cops at that point she believed she was about to be raped.

The robbers duct taped her ankles, picked her up and put her in the bathtub. She then started screaming ... begging them not to kill her because she had babies. She went on to say she had money and they could take whatever they wanted.

1003-kim-k-stolen-ring-INSTAGRAM-01Kim told cops the robbers did not know English and only spoke French. The only thing she understood ... the men kept saying, "ring, ring." Kim knew what they were after -- the new ring she got from Kanye. She told them where it was in the apartment, but that was not the end.

Kim continued to beg and cry, and at that point the robbers duct taped her mouth shut.  

We're told a friend of Kim's -- Simone -- was also in the apartment ... sleeping in the downstairs bedroom. Simone heard the commotion and locked herself in the bathroom and called Pascal, the bodyguard, and Kourtney ... telling them to hurry back because something was terribly wrong.

Pascal got back to the apartment 2 minutes after the robbers left.

The entire incident took around 6 minutes.


Kourtney Kardashian I Need More Protection Too

Breaking News

Kourtney Kardashian touched down in L.A. and was greeted by a tighter security detail than usual, and they immediately went to work ... shielding her from a horde of media.

Kourtney was whisked through LAX with 2 huge guys surrounding her -- while other bodyguards cleared a path to her waiting SUV.

As we reported ... Kim's trusted bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, was not with her at the time of the armed robbery -- instead he was with Kourt and Kendall Jenner in a Paris nightclub.

Much like Kim and Kris Jenner Monday morning in NYC -- it's clear the whole family is going to be rolling deep with bodyguards.


Ken Shamrock I Would Have Protected Kim ... If I Was Her Bodyguard

10/3/2016 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MMA legend Ken Shamrock is also a celebrity bodyguard -- and he says if he woulda been on Kim's team, she NEVER would have gotten robbed. 

FYI, Shamrock has been working in personal security for years and protected big stars like 50 Cent, Fergie and Kristin Cavallari. 

So, with Kim getting robbed in Paris this week -- Shamrock says there were a TON of mistakes made that he would have never let happen. 


Kim Kardashian Arrives in NYC ... Presidential Level Security

10/3/2016 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Kim Kardashian is back safely in NYC with Kanye West ... and they arrived with way more security than your average head of state.

There was an insane show of force as Kim, Kanye, Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble pulled up outside their residence -- they had a caravan of about 10 vehicles with 15-20 bodyguards watching everything and everyone in the area. NYPD's also on the scene.

The amount of security is exactly like what you see when POTUS makes an appearance.

Interestingly, Pascal Duvier ... Kim's bodyguard was still with them. As we reported ... he was not at the apartment with Kim when the armed robbery went down.

Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna Big Happy Fam for Baby Shower ... and a Payday

10/3/2016 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1003-blac-chyna-rob-kardashian-baby-shower-tmzRob Kardashian surfaced for his coed baby shower with Blac Chyna -- a strong sign they might be able to salvage a second season of their reality show after all.

We're told Rob planned most of Sunday's Armenian-themed fete which was held at a family friend's home in Woodland Hills, CA. None of his sisters got an invite, but we're told Scott Disick and French Montana showed up, and a bunch of other family members. 

It's a complete 180 from the fight that exploded last week after the sisters attempted to throw separate showers for Chyna and Rob, who had gone back to being a recluse again.

Rob put personal touches on everything from the champagne party favors to the desserts with the expectant parents' faces. Plus, a 7 layer cake, belly dancers and a Louis Vuitton diaper bag for Chyna. The whole thing was taped for their reality show. Rob had not been showing up for shoots recently, so this could mean he's had a change of heart.

Due to the taping, everyone had to turn in their phones -- which is why no one got the news about Kim's holdup in Paris until after the party.

Kim Kardashian Held at Gunpoint Millions Stolen Kanye Cancels Show

Exclusive Details

Armed gunmen broke into Kim Kardashian's Paris apartment, taped her mouth shut and stole more than $10 million in jewelry and the emergency rippled quickly all the way to New York ... where Kanye bolted from the stage mid-concert.

There were 5 gunmen, posing as cops, who threatened the concierge and made him open the door to her room.  

Our sources say at least 2 gunmen bound and gagged Kim with handcuffs and tape and then put her in the bathtub. We're told Kim begged them to spare her life, telling them she had babies at home.

The gunmen knew exactly what they were doing ... we're told they beelined it for her jewelry and took a $4.5 million ring and a jewelry box.

After the gunmen left she was able to break out of the restraints and called for help.

We're told Kim was badly shaken but unharmed, calling it "the worst moment in my life." She was interviewed by police and then hurriedly left Paris by private jet.

As for Kanye ... he was performing at the Meadows Festival in Queens, NY -- Yeezy was jamming in the middle of "Heartless" when he cut the music and made the announcement, stunning the crowd.

Hours before the robbery Kim posted video of her showing off outfits and wishing Blac Chyna a happy baby shower. 

She was staying in a luxury apartment complex, in a room similar to this one.
