An ex-body guard for Kim Kardashian says the reality star being robbed at gun point had to be an ‘inside job’.
Kim was robbed after thieves dressed as cops tied her up and stole around $14 million in jewelry from her Paris hotel room on Monday.
Steve Stanulis, who worked for Kim during New York Fashion Week in February for 10 days, and again in May wasn’t surprised by the news.
'This was a crime waiting to happen. Kim is lucky to be alive,' he told The New York Post.
'I would say it’s either an inside job or publicity stunt. That hotel is so secure, somebody must have tipped them off that she was alone inside, or shown them a way in.'
News.com.au reports Kanye West sacked Stanulis for getting too close to his wife.
'When I worked with them, Kanye would ask me to walk 10 feet behind him, which makes it so hard for anyone working their security to do anything if someone lunges at them. There was numerous times he’d try to ditch his security. He’d jump in a car and tell me to take a taxi,' he said.
Kardashian’s bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, has come under fire for not protecting Kim during ordeal. He was instead out with sisters Kourtney and Kendall.
Kim has since reunited with Kanye in New York.
