Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint during a robbery

While it wasn’t at one of her permanent residences, reality star Kim Kardashian was robbed while staying at a luxury premise in Paris in 2016. The terrifying ordeal involved her being held at gunpoint and £6million worth of belongings were stolen, including Kim’s emerald-cut diamond engagement ring from Kanye West. Kim's half-sister Kendall Jenner was also a victim of a robbery in 2017, when jewellery was stolen from her LA home, but the jury is still out on whether the thief was an insider as there was no sign of forced entry.
