It’s been over a week since Kim Kardashian‘s widely-reported hotel-room robbery, and everyone’s still talking about it. Five people reportedly forced the concierge to open the 35-year-old media mogul’s door, held her at gunpoint, tied her up, gagged her and put her in the bathtub before stealing $10 million worth of jewelry from her space. That’s some scary freakin’ s*it.
However, people aren’t entirely convinced about the details of the story. Some consider it to be a publicity stunt, a way to boost Keeping Up with the Kardashians ratings (though, the show has been put on hold) — others believe it could’ve been an inside job by her bodyguards or hotel security. There are also some who are convinced it was a heist conducted by the Pink Panthers, or maybe the Illuminati was involved. And then there are these people; the ones who are convinced that a celebrity’s to blame for Kim Kardashian’ robbery in Paris:
1. Kanye West

3. Donald Trump
My working theory is the Russians held up Kim Kardashian to distract us all from Trump's disastrous week.

I heard that Kim Kardashian is going into therapy I hope it's for her narcissism and her pathological lying with delusions of grandeur

Sadly, there are more hotel-room robbery cases than you may think. These stars know the deal:
After Kanye West abruptly ended a NYC concert due to a "family emergency," many people wondered what was going on. Unfortunately, the situation the rapper was referring to was the fact that his wife, Kim Kardashian, was held at gunpoint and robbed in Paris. According to TMZ, the 35-year-old reality star was in her hotel room after attending Paris Fashion Week when five armed robbers forced the concierge to open her door so they could gain access. The mother of two was then reportedly tied up, gagged, and put in the bathtub as the men stole $10 million worth of jewelry. Luckily, Kim was physically unharmed but was obviously extremely traumatized and called the situation "the worst moment in [her] life."
Back in 2007, this Spider-Man actress was staying at the Soho Grand Hotel in NYC when she was the victim of a robbery. James Jimenez broke into the star's penthouse suite and took $13,000 Balenciaga handbag, a cell phone, two digital cameras, an iPod, credit cards and $2,500 in cash. Kirsten was foruntately out at the time of the incident and the robber was later sentenced to four years in prison.
A night of partying turned into a nightmare for this Oscar-winning actor. The 46-year-old got super intoxicated while in Nicaragua back in 2008 and had to be carried back to his hotel room. While the star's friends had the best intentions in mind, they accidentally let his door unlocked and someone broke in and stole his cell phone and $2,000.
While some people run away in the face of danger, the host of Jeopardy did the opposite. Here's what he said about his reaction to witnessing a strange women inside his hotel room while he slept: "I woke up and saw a figure in our hotel bedroom and I thought I was dreaming. I realized immediately someone had been in the room. I put on my underwear and ran down the hall to see if I could find her." While Alex's actions led to Lucinda Moyers' arrest, it also caused him harm — he snapped his Achilles tendon while chasing her and had to get surgery a few days later.
Queen Latifah was vacationing in Tobago when someone, presumably a hotel staff member, broke into her villa and took $10,000 work of jewelry.
While the person who broke into Mike Tyson's Las Vegas hotel room (thankfully) didn't end up stealing anything, the situation was still incredibly scary. The former professional boxer was asleep after celebrating New Year's Eve and woke up to a man rummaging around his stuff. When the guy realized Mike had woken up, he fled the scene.
