Nine million euros in jewelry gone! This is the booty, never found, of the incredible heist of which the queen of social networks Kim Kardashian was the victim. It happened in Paris on October 3, 2016, shortly before 3 a.m. in the 115 m2 suite she occupied in a hotel as chic as it was discreet on rue Tronchet.

Four years later, the Paris prosecutor’s office completed its investigation and asked for the referral to the assizes of 12 suspects for a trial which should take place in 2021. Paradoxically, the perpetrators of this coup worthy of organized crime are a bunch of grandpa burglars including the eldest is 72 and the chief 60.

The scenario is worthy of the best films of the genre. What helped lead the thugs to the reality TV star’s bedroom is none other than his excessive use of social media. Kim Kardashian documented every detail of her time in Paris, including the moment she found herself without a bodyguard. Besides the material damage, there was more fear than harm fortunately for her, but a catastrophic image for the French capital.
