Kim Kardashian West was robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry while visiting Paris on Sunday night, according to a judicial source and reports.

A second source with knowledge of security at the private mansion where the reality TV star was staying told NBC News that she was tied up during the incident and that a wedding ring was among the valuables taken.

Kardashian West’s spokeswoman said that she was left “badly shaken but physically unharmed” after being held at gunpoint by two armed, masked men.

The culprits escaped with a ring worth about $4.5 million and a jewelry box containing other items worth $5.6 million, the judicial source said. The Associated Press also cited a Paris police official as confirming that account.

The judicial source told NBC News that five individuals dressed as police officers went to the building Sunday night.

An authoritative source with knowledge of the hotel’s security said an overnight watchman was on duty when he was overcome by armed men. They took the key to where Kardashian West was staying and ran around the building trying to find the correct apartment.

Once inside, the source said, the men tied her up and put her in the bathroom. The source added that the robbers seemed to have known that security was light on Sunday night, triggering speculation it may have been an inside job.

We will keep you informed as more develops. Happy that Kim is OK.

After undergoing hours of facial-feminization surgery, breast augmentation and hormone therapy, Bruce Jenner has revealed a new identity and name in the latest issue of Vanity Fair, which shows a large photo of Jenner as a woman with the caption “Call Me Caitlyn.”

The one-time Olympic gold medalist poses on the cover in a one-piece corseted lingerie outfit.

A video that accompanies the cover online shows Jenner being photographed for the magazine, saying: “Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Every day he always had a secret from morning till night. Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets.”

The photos that accompany the story show Jenner in two long gold gowns, a long off-the-shoulder mermaid dress, a lace corset, a tight long sleeve V-neck dress and a red long sleeve dress. In the images, Jenner poses on a couch, in a makeup chair, in the car and in front of a large window.

The reality star told the mag: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.”

North West Gets Baptized In Jerusalem

Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West visited a centuries-old Armenian church in Jerusalem on Monday for the baptism of their daughter, North West.

The Kardashians fended off swooning fans as they entered the Saint James Cathedral in Jerusalem’s Old City. Kardashian, appearing overwhelmed, clutched the tiny girl as she was escorted by West, her sister Khloe and hooded clergymen

“Stop,” Kim Kardashian shouted to the crowd. “Stop! It’s not safe for the baby,” her sister added.

Archbishop Aris Shirvanian, an Armenian church official, said the family had arrived for a baptism ceremony.

“Kim Kardashian’s daughter will be baptized and become a Christian officially and a member of the Armenian church,” Shirvanian said, slightly perplexed by all the commotion. “All I know is that she’s a famous personality. I don’t know her in person. In any case she is welcome with her family.”

There were no details on the ceremony, and the family left the church without speaking to reporters.

The members of reality TV’s first family arrived in a private jet at Israel’s international airport on Monday for what was described as a private two-day visit.

All were captured on camera disembarking their plane and the images featured prominently on Israeli websites. They were quickly whisked away in a dark black SUV to a hotel in Jerusalem. Paparazzi did their best to keep up with their movements.

The celebrities arrived from a high-profile visit to Armenia, where the Kardashian family traces its roots.

They are expected to shoot some footage for their reality show in Jerusalem before moving on to Jordan.

Kanye West Learns How To Shut Up

After joining the club of celebrity husband’s and dad’s, Kanye West has certainly learned a few things.

Kanye appeared on today’s birthday episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and said that he’s changed since starting his new family.

“I’ve definitely learned how to compromise more,” he told DeGeneres with a laugh.

“Which is something you have to understand when you partner with people in business.”

“I’ve learned how to shut up more,” West, 37, quipped.

“I think I’m a better human being because of her and because of my daughter. And I always have someone to think about going home to.

“There are things I’ve done in the past that were considered negative, but I was really jumping in front of the tank for other people or for culture in a way so now I always have to have that in my mind that I have a family that I have to protect too.”

DeGeneres complimented the outspoken rapper for being calmer as of late.

“You don’t seem angry,” the comedian said.

“I don’t know if it was even anger, but it was just a way that you were getting all of your emotions out. Now I think your emotions are grounded in a way that they come out in protection and love and their channeled in a different way.

“I think I was going through my version of my terrible twos. My daughter she wants to express herself and she just doesn’t have the words for it,” West said comparing himself to 1-year-old North West.

“For me there was so many things I wanted to do with film and clothing and I just didn’t have the words or the resources or the backing or the perception that I could do it being that I was a rapper.”

Speaking of his adorable little girl, West gave all of the viewers a first look at his music video for his new song, “Only One” which was first released earlier this month in collaboration with Paul McCartney.

Kris Jenner & Bruce Jenner Separate After 22 Years Of Marriage

chris_stokes_kris_jenner_bruce_jenner_separate

Bruce Jenner no longer has to keep up with the Kardashians.

After 22 years of marriage and countless rumors of a split, Kris and Bruce Jenner have called it quits. The couple confirmed that development to E! News following months of speculation that a spin-off was inevitable.
“We are living separately and we are much happier this way,” the reality TV power pair confirmed to the tabloid news station. “But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”

The Jenners have maintained separate residencies for some time, but had always denied that was indicative of a troubled marriage. In November 2012, Kris told E! that she and Bruce had become used to humoring rumors they were destined for divorce.

“We just laugh it off,” said the 57-year-old so-called momager. “We love each other and just laugh about it. … These kind of stories have been circulating for the last couple of years.”
Bruce Jenner, 67, hero of the 1976 Summer Olympics, has reportedly taken up full time residence in his Malibu home while Kris Jenner remains in the family’s Hidden Hills, Calif., estate.

The Jenners married in April 1991, one month after Kris’ divorced her first husband, celebrity lawyer Robert Kardashian, with whom she had four children — reality TV stars Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob. Bruce has four children from two previous marriages.

Together, they have two daughters, Kendall and Kylie.

Rumors of a split between the pair hit an all-time high last week when Kris’ sister Karen Houghton told In Touch magazine her big sis and brother-in-law were no longer an item.

“[Kris and Bruce] are separated,” she told the mag. “Their relationship goes back and forth. I would love to see them get back together.”

Masters of media manipulation they are, the Jenner’s announced their separation with impeccable timing Tuesday evening. Tabloids like IN Touch, US Weekly and People magazine had already put their upcoming issues to bed by Tuesday afternoon.

Here she is!

The world got its first look at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, North West, when the rapper revealed a photo of the baby girl during his appearance Friday on Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner’s talk show.

The baby girl, born June 15, is the first child for Kardashian and West.

“To stop all the noise, I thought it’d be really cool, on her grandmother’s season finale, to bring a picture of North,” West said, clarifying that the couple has “not attempted to get paid” for the image.

During the talk show appearance, West talked about fatherhood and his relationship with Kardashian.

“I was in love with her before I ever even got to talk to her,” he admitted to his girlfriend’s mother on the show.

Referencing Kardashian’s past relationships with professional athletes, West joked, “I wanted to be with her so bad that I thought about picking up sports.”

“I can have people saying that this is going to damage your credibility as an artist or a designer, and I say, ‘I don’t care, I love this woman,'” he said, adding, “She’s my joy, and she brought my new joy into the world. There’s no paparazzi and there’s no blog comments that’s going to take that joy from me.”

Speaking about fatherhood, the rapper joked, “I’m supposed to be this musical genius, but I can’t work the car seat that well.”

He also said becoming a dad has changed his outlook on life.

“After I lost my mother, there were times I felt I would put my life at risk,” he said. “I felt like sometimes I didn’t have something to live for. Now I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for.”

Kim Kardashian Breaks Twitter Silence To Wish Khloe Kardashian Happy Birthday

Now that’s family love! Kim Kardashian broke her Twitter silence for the first time since giving birth to baby North West to wish her little sister Khloe Kardashian a happy birthday.

Kim has been on a social media radio silence since giving birth to daughter North on Saturday, June 15.

Kim Kardashian And Kris Humphries’ Divorce Finalized

kim-kardashian-kris-humphries-1-701x1024

A very pregnant Kim Kardashian looked triumphant as she left a Los Angeles courthouse on Friday, April 19, after the judge officially announced that her year-and-a-half divorce battle with ex Kris Humphries had come to an end.

“Yes, it’s done,” a source says. “They realized there was no fraud and the judge urged Kris to settle. Finally it’s over!”

Kardashian, 32, and Humphries officially announced their split after just 72 days of marriage in October 2011, and have been in a bitter court battle ever since. While Kardashian sought a clean divorce from the NBA player, Humphries instead filed for an annulment, claiming that Kardashian had committed fraud when she said “I do.”

Humphries, 28, dropped his demand for an annulment, and will not get a single penny from Kardashian, despite his previous request for $7 million from his estranged wife. Both parties will also pay for their own attorney’s fees, squashing reports that Kardashian might require Humphries to pony up for hers.

The Kourtney & Kim Take Miami star showed up on time for the proceedings Friday morning, and answered a few short questions from the judge, an eyewitness said.

When asked if irreconcilable differences led to the breakdown of the marriage, Kardashian responded yes. She denied that counseling would have helped the marriage.

Save for the court’s final sign-off on the judgment — which will need to happen before June 19 — Kardashian and Humphries are now officially divorced, just in time for the July arrival of Kardashian’s baby with boyfriend Kanye West.

Humphries was not present for Friday’s hearing, despite court orders. He was also absent from an Apr. 12 settlement hearing that was meant to keep the case from going to trial.

“[Kris is] just wasting everyone’s time at this point … The judge is furious. So disrespectful,” a source said of Humphries’ previous absence. “Kim showed up pregnant!”

And there are other things that haven’t quite worked out in Humphries’ favor either. Earlier this month, the Brooklyn Nets player demanded that he have access to several emails his estranged wife had sent him from closed accounts. The judge denied his request on Apr. 15, just days after he was a no-show in court.

Luckily for Humphries, however, the judge has ruled his failure to appear in court “irrelevant” now that the case is settled. The athlete was previously set to be hit with fines for failing to show up to several court-ordered appearances.

Kim Kardashian Suffers Miscarriage Scare

Expectant mom Kim Kardashian had a scary night Tuesday, as she was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital with concerns she’d suffered a miscarriage, though thankfully, her baby was fine.

The New York Post was first to report of the scare, as an insider told the paper that Kim felt the first sign of trouble while returning to Los Angeles from France, where she attended Paris Fashion Week with baby daddy-to-be Kanye West.

The 32-year-old socialite “started feeling ill on the plane from Paris, and called friends as soon as she landed,” the insider told the paper. “She was rushed to her doctor Tuesday night in tears. She thought she was having a miscarriage.”

She was sent home at 12:30 a.m Wednesday, the paper reported, and her doctors advised her to eliminate her fast-paced, jet-setting lifestyle as she advances into the final months of her pregnancy.

“Kim’s not respecting her pregnancy,” a source told the paper. “She’s running around, working out seven days a week. She’s working with two different trainers to control her weight, including Tracy Anderson and a pregnancy trainer.”

“She’s scared that her ass is as big as a couch and is going south, but she is having a very rough pregnancy, and doctors have ordered her to slow down.”
