Kim Kardashian Robbery Hoax


Kim Kardashian’s robbery was NOT a hoax, contrary to a tabloid cover story. Once again, Gossip Cop can set the record straight.

The new cover of Star features a photo of Kardashian and blares, “Paris Robbery: The Truth!” Inside the issue, a headline asks, “What Is It A Hoax?” According to the accompanying story, there’s “nagging suspicions that the heist could have been faked” because Kardashian’s claims are supposedly “not adding up” and could actually be part of an “insurance scam.”

“Insiders say that Kim may desperately need the insurance money on her jewelry to help pay off husband Kanye West’s mountain of debt,” alleges the magazine, which quotes one so-called “insider” as saying, “From start to finish, Kim’s account is full of points that don’t make any sense.” The story goes on to put forth a number of questions that have already been answered, such as why Kardashian was without a security guard at the time of the robbery and how come she was staying at that particular residence.

Of course, there’s nothing actually suspicious about Kardashian’s bodyguard overseeing her sisters while they went out, nor is there anything questionable about the reality star staying alone at her own private apartment within a residential hotel. Still, Star actually accuses Kardashian of not only filing a false police report, but also committing insurance fraud.

The outlet’s supposed insider says, “Look, if things happened the way Kim is claiming, you obviously have to sympathize with her and be thankful that no harm came to her. But if she’s a party to fraud, then let the chips fall where they may. I think she and Kanye would suffer irreparable harm to their reputations — and by extension, the whole Kardashian family and brand would be disgraced as well — and I believe Kim would deserve the full penalty of the law if it was determined she was a driving force behind a hoax of this dramatic magnitude.”

No doubt, Kardashian has made some serious allegations. But these accusations from Star are quite serious, too. They’re also unfounded. French authorities have given no indication that they doubt the reality star’s story. And she is so adamant that her account is truthful that Kardashian is already suing MediaTakeOut for claiming the robbery was “staged.”

In the lawsuit, which Gossip Cop reported was filed earlier this week, attorney Marty Singer noted that the webloid “outrageously” implied Kardashian “has lied about her traumatic robbery and committed insurance fraud and falsely make it appear as if Kardashian were culpable in criminal wrongdoing.” This cover story from Star is essentially doing the same, and therefore, should be disregarded. In fact, Gossip Cop has exclusively learned that Kardashian’s attorney has filed off a legal letter to the magazine for its untrue “hoax” allegations.
