The recent Kim Kardashian robbery case takes an interesting turn – according to numerous reports, Kanye West is wanted by the police for hearing as he emerged as a prime suspect, with increasing evidence that the theft was an inside job! According to the police, someone close to Kim tipped off the thieves and Kanye, who has been invited for a hearing in Paris even though he was performing in New York at the time.
Police sources says that the case is indeed strange, and that Kanye has been avoiding their calls. However, he must go at some point as the USA and France have an extradition treaty. If the police provide enough evidence that the theft was an inside job insurance scam, Kanye must show up in Paris and clean his name.
Steve Stanulis, Kim’s former bodyguard also thinks that something is wrong. “I would say it’s either an inside job or publicity stunt. That hotel is so secure, somebody must have tipped them off that she was alone inside, or shown them a way in,” Steve says. “First thought as soon as I read this ‘story’ was this is a bullshit insurance scam. Kanye was complaining he’s broke and needs millions just a couple months ago, now 11 million dollars of jewelry happens to get stolen. No witnesses? No cameras in the hotel? No security, just one concierge? Why would she have $11 million dollars worth of jewelry on her? This reeks of a scam.“
Back in February, Kanye publicly declared that he was $53 million in debt. “Detectives are satisfied that the robbers could have easily tricked their way into Kardashian’s apartment block, [but] it is not clear how they got into her actual flat,” a source said. “The baffling part of the inquiry is how the robbers got into the apartment. Of course it’s possible they tricked their way in, but at that time of the [early morning] it’s unclear who actually opened the door.” The source adds that the entrance to the apartment is armored and easily locked from the inside.
“We are dealing with a young woman who was practically alone with a hugely valuable amount of jewelry. She would never open the door in the middle of the night in these circumstances, so who did if it wasn’t opened with a key? There were no signs of forced entry, but there’s also no proof that a key was used,” the source adds.
Jeanne d’Hauteserre, mayor of the eighth arrondissement of Paris, thinks that a local gang was involved in the jewelry theft. “There have been a number of attacks in recent times, notably of watches, and then of people attacked in their own apartments. Now that this is all a big news story, we hope that the famous gang or gangs will be dismantled and arrested.” she says.
