Kim Kardashian 'files R77 million insurance claim' in the wake of Paris robbery


The reality star and entrepreneur was bound, gagged and held at gunpoint in a Paris apartment as thieves grabbed jewellery and cellphones in the early hours on Monday.

Kim was left alone in her apartment when the thieves, dressed as French police officers, struck. Her bodyguard Pascal Duvier was looking after her sister Kourtney elsewhere in Paris at the time of the incident.

The mother-of-two was spotted back in Los Angeles on Friday (07 Oct 16), as it was reported filming on Keeping up with the Kardashians has been halted so the family can recover from Kim's terrifying ordeal.

And now, Kim has filed an insurance claim for 13 items of jewellery, totalling $5.6 million (£4.5 million) according to

Her second engagement ring from husband Kanye West - a Lorraine Schwartz 20-carat, emerald-cut diamond - is reported to be among those items stolen, and is valued at $4 million.

Meanwhile, it's been claimed that the reality star could lose at least $1 million (£804,000) a month after it was reported she would be taking a break from social media and all professional commitments.

Financial adviser Samuel Rad told Kim's self-imposed break may lose her money, but might also boost her popularity.

"I think what's going to happen is the first post she’s going to put up after not having posted for (a while), it’s going to get so many more followers and hits," he explained. "I think that it might actually end up helping her. Especially if Kim positions (her return to social media) correctly... I think it could be a really big moneymaker for her brand."
