The star was robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewellery after being tied up in her apartmentParis' chief of police has admitted he had to GOOGLE Kim Kardashian's name as new information about her robbery ordeal has emerged.
Christian Sainte spoke to Vanity Fair Magazine about the reality TV star's terrifying night during Paris Fashion Week, during which she was held at gunpoint and tied up, before five masked men made off with millions of pounds worth of jewellery.
French residents have dubbed the robbery "L'Affaire Kardashian" or simply "Kim" and Sainte says he was woken up at 3am and told of the news.
"I asked my number two, 'Who is this victim?'" Sainte said, before typing her name in the search engine at home and learning everything about the mum-of-two.
"The personality of the victim, Kim Kardashian, is not like anyone else," he added. "She has a lot of likes on Facebook!"
Sainte talked to the mag about "home-jacking," robbing rich people in their homes which is fast and easy to get a lot of money, and says it's the first time he's seen robbers make off on bicycles.
Every morning, he has a conference with his policing team to find out the progress of their investigation and says he's confident they will find the criminals who were thought to have been caught on CCTV.
"We can say that there is a professional team that committed this crime, and they seem to be organised," he said.
Vanity Fair also spoke to fashion designer Christophe Guillarmé, who said there was a party hosted by a Brazilian beer company before the robbery at the No Address Hotel where Kim stayed, and guests were joking about her lack of security.
"Everybody was telling each other, 'Do you know there’s a Kardashian upstairs?'" he said. "It was like a joke, like she's upstairs while we are partying."
"There was no bodyguard at the front door, no bodyguard inside. There was a girl at the entrance, who asked, 'Are you coming to the party?' And if you said yes, she let you in."
