WASHINGTON: The French police are continuing to hunt for the armed attackers who raided Kim Kardashian’s apartment a few days ago, but there seems to be plenty of facts and details that do not match.

According to Hollywood Life, the star reportedly told police that the concierge, who was threatened by five armed robbers and handcuffed, before being forced to take them up a private elevator to Kim's room, was “calm throughout” the robbery.

"He opened the door and led them [the robbers] up and was in there the whole time," she reportedly claimed.

Another unanswered question will be about the 35-year-old star being alone in an unguarded flat.

Kardashian West and her longtime friend Simone, who called bodyguard Pascal Duvier, were reportedly the only people in the apartment block at the time of the heist.

The absence of CCTV inside or directly outside the portered apartment block also implied something suspicious and makes the robbery seem like an “inside job.”

Besides, there was reportedly only one night porter on duty at the VIP block that is rented out for up to 8000 pounds per flat a week and the gang entered the main door to the apartment block without causing damage.

And last but not the least, the reality star is being allowed to leave France so soon after the crime as it is common for victims of serious crimes to assist police for days after the attack, as key information could easily be forgotten.

For the unversed, the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star was recently bound and gagged in her luxury apartment in Paris by two armed men pretending to be police.

The robbers reportedly forced their way into the hotel apartment and made off with 10 million dollars in jewelry, part of which included a four million dollar diamond ring gifted by her husband, Kanye West.

Post robbery, West’s family has been spotted with extra bodyguards and has maintained a rare silence on social media.
