Kim Kardashian's Paris Hotel Concierge Speaks Out About Robbery
The Hôtel de Pourtalès concierge gave an extensive interview about the night of Kim Kardashian‘s gunpoint robbery in Paris, France.
The 39-year-old concierge, identified only as Abdulrahman for his safety, was on duty when Kim‘s robbery took place. He was reportedly handcuffed and forced to translate as the robbery took place while Kim was bound and gagged.
“There was no real security at all. It’s a choice,” Abdulrahman told Daily Mail, adding that in 2010 he sent his bosses an e-mail saying they needed better security. “The hotel doesn’t mind about security. We told them year and years before, you have to make a camera, you have to put [in place] a security process, about keys. Nothing was locked, there was no proper security there.”
About the robbery, Abdulrahman said, “I told them to open it because it was open, and he asked with gestures, he made me come to open the door. So I came to open it and just when I opened it, he grabbed me and handcuffed me. In the first seconds, I thought they were policemen making an intervention. I told them, I’m working here, what is wrong? After that he questioned me, where is the security video? At that time, I said s—t, it’s a robbery.”
“At first I looked at them and one got very angry,” he continued. “He asked me to put my head down and never look at him again. He repeated, never, never look at me, or I will kill you. I saw that two of them had guns, then I just looked down.”
“I ended up having the handcuffs on until almost five in the morning because policemen did not have the ability to open them,” he continued. “It made me upset. The police were not very professional. They did not look after me afterwards, they didn’t offer me any counseling or anything. Psychologically, I have to repair myself.”
At this time, the assailants are still at large.
