How horrible! Kim Kardashian, 35, is understandably shaken up after what she’s calling ‘the worst moment of my life.’ While she is — most importantly — safe, her belongings are not. Nearly $11 million worth of jewelry was taken from her hotel room, while she was locked and tied up in the bathroom. It’s unclear which of Kim’s jewelry was taken at this time.

Two masked men, dressed as police officers not only held Kim Kardashian at gunpoint and at her hotel in Paris, they also took a great deal of expensive jewelry, including a jewelry box worth $6.7 million and a ring worth $4.5 million, police said, according to Daily Mail. It has not yet been confirmed if the ring taken was in fact, one of the two that she has received from Kanye West. While Kim’s original Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring was worth around $1.6 million, the second diamond that Kanye gave his wife — a 20-carat emerald-cut ring — was reportedly worth around $4 million.

When leaving Paris the following morning, she was spotted on a private plane, not wearing a ring. In her last snapchat taken before the robbery, she was wearing it. The men who robbed her were part of a “highly organized” group, police confirmed, according to Us. They entered the apartment by reportedly tying up and gagging the concierge at the front desk and putting him inside a stairwell cupboard. TMZ is reporting there were five men total who entered the building, and they tied up a terrified Kim and put her in the bathroom of her room.

Of course, more details are still coming out of this story. Kanye was performing a concert in Queens at the time the news broke; he stopped the show in the middle of performing “Heartless,” and walked off stage. The venue later tweeted to inform fans he had a “family emergency.”

Our thoughts are with Kim at this time.

HARRISON — A Swedish woman on vacation with her daughter was robbed at knifepoint, with the suspect stealing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry, police said.

The June 15 robbery happened when the 31-year-old was walking back to the Element Hotel on Somerset Street from a nearby QuickChek at about 1:30 a.m., according to a police report.

The victim said a knife-wielding man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and dark clothing approached her and her 12-year-old daughter under the Interstate 280 overpass, police said.

The suspect told the woman to give him everything she had, which included two gold chains and a gold bracelet collectively valued at about $17,000. The woman then ran with her daughter back to the hotel and called police, the report states.

Both victims were treated at the hotel for shock and fatigue. Police were looking at nearby surveillance video for information on the incident, police said.
