Kim Kardashian’s robbery investigation has led to the arrest of 17 suspects

There are about a million new Kim Kardashian stories, so let’s get to it. Kim has been back on social media for a week now, posting photos to Instagram and Twitter and chatting with her fans. Perhaps she was just waiting for something to promote? Perhaps. The new season of Keeping up with the Kardashians begins in March, and the new promo dropped a few days ago.

This is the first public statement Kim has made about the robbery in Paris last October. Some believed that she would give an exclusive interview to one of the magazine shows, like 60 Minutes or 20/20 or something. But what if she saves everything for E!?

As for the Paris robbery, yesterday the news came through that seventeen suspects have been apprehended in France in connection with the robbery. French authorities have long believed that Kim’s robbery was done by a well-known group/gang of jewel thieves operating throughout Europe, and that the gang is extensive. Basically, if they’ve arrested seventeen people, they might not even have half the group. Kim’s Paris limo driver was also arrested, as he was likely part of the scheme. That’s what media outlets mean when they say this was an “inside job” – it was set up by someone Kim hired temporarily.

What else? Last Friday, People Magazine did a long-winded story about how Kim and Kanye got through the holidays and they’re both feeling a lot better now. Kim, sources say, is a changed woman since the robbery, and taking time off from public life has changed her for the better too. She’s apparently going to ease herself into a work schedule but she’ll be going slower than pre-robbery. Which I guess means she won’t be traveling so much and showing off so much.

    What’s with the eighties vibe of her recent photos? It’s like an item from the weird family photos website.

  2. Megan says:

    Are Kim and Saint in the Blair Witch basement?

  3. Hannah says:

    If she saved it for her show, what’s wrong? If it was another celebrity in the same situation, but with better fame, and decided to approach the subject in a TV show, people would find her brave. It’s her problem, her decision to talk if she wants too, people gave her a hard time for not talking, now they’ll give cause she’s talking, Kim is plastic, but she’s human.

      errrm Naomi was attacked in Paris as well. she said what happened and let the police do their job…

      • ViXi says:

        But Naomi is a very strong woman. All she had to do was throw her cellphone at the robbers to scare them off! lol

        Joking aside this is what I was always taught when faced with robbers – throw your valuables far away from you and run.

  4. Jo says:

    NO! You can’t use OK Go to promote the Kardashians!

  5. Sam says:

    Her driver was one of the ones arrested. So when I said it was an “inside” job and folks came at me well here I am saying it was an “inside” job. It was an inside job set up by the momma devil herself. Did Kim know about it? I have no clue. But welcome to Keeping Up With the Kardashians were talent is forgotten and the stories just keep a turning.

    • freebunny says:

      Inside job doesn’t mean the kardashian are involved.

    • Alleycat says:

      There’s still parts of me that believes that the kardashians had a role in this too.

    • Snowflake says:

      Yes, I still don’t believe it. Sorry, they lie and manipulate so much, if Kim told me the sky was blue, I would double check. I’m glad you said it, I wanted to say it but I remembered how defensive people got towards her the last time we had this discussion.

    • Spaniard89 says:

      The arrests being made just days before the big premiere of this season’s KUWTK that will focus on her trauma over what happened is too much a big coincidence as well… Pap walk of the arrests included. WTF was that?

    • Luca76 says:

      If they were dumb enough to do that they will do time. I’m sure everyone involved is facing serious time and would definitely rat out. Plus the insurance companies would also be going through the whole thing with a fine tooth. French police aren’t going to blithely ignore fraud.

  6. Mar says:

    I am hating this Cher era of Kim

  7. Allie B. says:

    I still can’t summon much sympathy for her. The whole pulled back emo look is eye roll worthy.

  8. QQ says:

    I’d Like to point out that I Told you all the day it went down this is exactly how itd play out, with a Flashy season and that since they’d be monetizing in no time, I was not gonna weep about it

  9. original kay says:

    Ok. I so very rarely post on anything K related, and try very hard not to judge parenting but… like, she couldn’t have posted a picture of her actually interacting with her kid? no snuggle, no cuddle, no acknowledgement that’s even her son? That’s the pic she chooses? He’s tangled in her gross hair and her eyes are dead, no shine even though that’s her kid?

    /end rant

    • Snowflake says:

      Him holding her hair is staged. That’s the new thing now, to pull out your hair in a photo so everyone can see how good? Your extensions/wig look.

  10. ViXi says:

    Phew! Slow is good. It means we won’t get bombarded and force fed with KKK articles! Just chill and take it easy.

  11. swak says:

    Don’t think she is cutting down on her travels as, according to DM, she is scheduled to go to Dubai with a make up artist for a “Masterclass” – whatever that is. The picture with her and Saint looks like it was taken in a half-finished basement – which is weird. Also, can someone with knowledge explain to me, they supposedly have the DNA of two of the robbers on the duct tape they used, aren’t those the only they can prosecute unless there is other evidence to convict the others?

    • Zip says:

      She’s been doing the Masterclass thing for a long time with her make up guy. It’s an expensive make up class where he uses her a a model from time to time to teach make up techniques. Nothing wrong with that if you’re willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a mass event.

  12. Nancy says:

    PMK must have had Kimmie’s hands in restraints to keep her off social media for three months. How shady that they said they wouldn’t use their misfortune as a storyline. Duh. We all knew they would and they did. If the insignificant stories about them would disappear, so would they. I can’t imagine who their television audience is, has to be teens. So predictable.

  13. Snowflake says:

    Hey guys, I want to try wearing some wigs so I can change up my style without coloring my hair’s. Can you guys give me basic tips? I have long hair, I have heard you can tuck it under and wear a cap under the wig? Will that keep it in place? I really don’t want it to fall off at work, everyone would laugh their butt off and I would never hear the end of it. Plus I am white, do you think I would get funny looks or made fun of? I’ve only seen little old white Ladies wear a wig….

    • Pumpkin Pie says:

      I don’t know if you looked that up already, but there are some tutorials on youtube – including for long hair !

    • I Choose Me says:

      I wear wigs all the time and I prefer them to weaves or extensions because when I go home I can just take it off. I’m black but I don’t see why you should get funny looks for being white and wearing a wig. Just make sure it’s a well made wig in a shade that suits your complexion.

    • Snowflake says:

      Thanks for the tips!

  14. Zip says:

    Her face looks so painful in the video. She’s entering Jocelyn Wildenstein territory.

    • QQ says:

      I Saw this now that i’m watching in the office, like without the layers of makeup and such A LOT is going on in the face

  15. LisD says:

    Wow. What a shocker! Right on time to coincide with the promotion of their show.

    Not saying the robbery didn’t happen but it sure does help having a new storyline.

    Honestly though, if it were me, I wouldn’t want to relive the trauma by putting it out there on tv. But then again I don’t have fame ho tendencies.

    Also, when I post a pic of me and my kid on instagram, I definitely would pick a photo with me looking all kinds of uninterested in him said no one ever. Sorry I’m moody today. I’ll see myself out.

    • Lacia Can says:

      Nah, you’re good. You’re not saying anything terrible; many people seem suspicious of the timing of the arrests and the helpful perp walk. I don’t really believe the police would be helping to promote the show, but I have been conditioned to side-eye anything involving the Ks. They really have only themselves to blame for the lack of sympathy.

  16. Jeanette says:

    ripped jeans a hoodie and HEELS? Ugh woman..

  17. MarineTheFrench says:

    The best thing about this for me is that the eldest of the gang is 72 year old.
    That actually made us laugh !! My family is evil!

  18. Karla says:

    If this happened to anyone else, I would feel sorry for them but with the K’s I just can’t. Although no-one deserves this to happen to them, I am surprised that people think flaunting such hedonism and wealth is socially acceptable. A lot of people in the world don’t have much and are just waiting to take what you have. I find the current social obsession with boasting and flaunting what you have via social media i.e. your body, your possessions, your life, so peculiar. It does seem like an invitation to criminals, weirdos and dangerous people. Privacy is protection.
