In a police report published in French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche, Kim Kardashian has shared her chilling account of being robbed in Paris.

"I heard a noise at the door, like footsteps, and I shouted out to ask who was there but no one answered," Kim told police, according to the newspaper, which published the report in both French and English on its website.

“I called my bodyguard at 2.56am. Then, beyond the sliding doors, I saw two people arrive with the gentleman from reception, and he was tied up. Both men were hooded, one had a ski mask and he had a cap and a jacket with 'police' on it. The one with the ski goggles snatched my BlackBerry, the one with the goggles measuring 1.70 m, thin, black pants, and black boots. The second individual, also European, was taller and stayed with the security guard,"

"It was the one with the ski mask who stayed with me. He asked me, with a strong French accent, where was my ring. It was placed on the bedside table. It costs four million dollars.  I answer him that I don't know, he takes out a weapon and I show him the ring. He took out a gun and I showed him the ring. He pointed the weapon toward me. He takes the ring, he was wearing gloves. He asked me where the jewels and the money are,"

"They grabbed me and took me into the hallway. I was wearing a bathrobe, naked underneath. Then we went in the room again and they pushed me on the bed. And, it was this time, they tied me up with plastic cables and taped my hands, then they put tape over my mouth and my legs. Then they carried me in my bathroom, more specifically, my bathtub."

"When they pushed me onto the bed, they went to my purse and emptied everything," she added.

Soon after, "they ran away", the star explained. "During the theft, they had the hotel's mobile phone that did not stop ringing, and they spoke in French. I got the impression they were saying they had to leave."

The robbers stole Kim's three gold necklaces, bracelets, jewels and rings. The reality star also lost a diamond necklace by Lauren Schwartz, another necklace with six little diamonds and a necklace with her son's name, 'Saint', embossed in diamonds. "I also had just a cross-shaped diamond, by Jacob, a watch by Rolex all in yellow gold and there were two rings in yellow gold," the report concluded.

Police arrested 17 people last week in and around Paris in connection with the robbery.
