Five years after Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris back in 2016, one of the five alleged robbers has just released a tell-all book chronicling some of the events that took place that night.
Yunice Abbas, who has never been pictured, was one of five men accused of breaking into Kim Kardashian’s hotel room and stealing $10million worth of jewellery on October 2, 2016.
Kim had been staying at the Hotel de Pourtalès complex, after visiting France for Paris Fashion Week.
During the attack, Kim was tied up and held at gunpoint.
An alleged excerpt from the book, which is titled “I sequestered Kim Kardashian”, has been published in the French edition of Closer magazine.
In the book, Abbas reportedly says:“In the most complete haste, I pick up the valuables. This time, my rear wheel is punctured.
Abbas later went on to claim that he and the rest of the group had relied heavily on the help of elderly people when they were scanning the building as they hatched a plan to rob the reality star.
He continued:“What could be more reassuring than elderly people, as peaceful as they are anonymous, in order to glean as much information as possible on the spot.”
He also claimed that Kim and her secretary had reportedly called 911 (American emergency number) repeatedly at the beginning of the robbery, despite being in France.
During a chat with David Letterman on his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, Kim claimed that the group of men were all wearing masks and dressed as police officers.
She went on to say that there were two of the men in the room with her and they’d also brought in the hotel’s concierge with them, with a gun held to his head.
Kim explained:“They were yelling at me in French and I just sat up and they kept on saying ‘the ring, the ring,’ and I was just so startled.”
