What happened in the robbery?

Robbers forced their way into the serviced apartment where Kardashian was staying in the French capital, where she was attending Paris Fashion Week.

At the time, police said the US reality TV star was robbed at gunpoint by at least two men who had disguised themselves as police officers to gain entry to the luxury apartment.

Sources said the attackers struck at around 3am.

The 36-year-old was tied up and locked in a bathroom.

The masked offenders made off with an estimated nine million euros worth of jewellery.
