So the question everyone is left with is, how did they get in?
The French Interior Ministry told CNN, a group of five men gained access after threatening the concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open her private space.
The Paris prosecutor’s office said, two of the men were able to get in and access the star’s temporary home and held a gun to her head.
Now the world is reacting to the mishap.

I'm glad Kim Kardashian is safe and also glad I'm not around people who would act so coldly towards anyone being robbed at gunpoint.
