As previously reported, arrests have been made in conjunction with Kim Kardashian getting robbed at gunpoint in Paris last October.
Numerous arrests have actually been made, with outlets claiming that Paris police have taken 17 people into custody.
But it’s the identity of one of these individuals that has left folks wondering:
Might this have been an inside job?!?
This question has been floating around for months simply due to the technical precision of the crime.
The thieves were in and out of Kim’s apartment in minutes, breaking in very soon after her bodyguard left the star for the night and making off with over $10 million in jewelry.
How did they know Kim was alone at this time?
How did they know she was in possession of such expensive items?
Might it have been due to the fact that one of the 17 suspects arrested in connection with the heist was actually working at the time as Kardashian’s chaffeur?
According to French newspaper Le Monde, this unnamed man is an employee for the limo company that Kardashian-Jenner family members often uses while in Paris.
And this chauffeur was the last person to drive the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star prior to the scary incident, which took place early in the morning on October 3 incident.
While Kim has scarcely talked about what happened, it’s been confirmed that she was tied up and gagged by five armed assailants, begging for her life during the unimaginable ordeal.
Police are trying to determine whether the driver passed information along to the thieves.
Per Le Monde, the five masked men who actually broke into the reality star’s private residence are, indeed, among the 17 people who were apprehended this week.
They were partially identified as a result of DNA discovered on a piece of duct tape used to tie Kardashian up.
It’s unclear at the moment just what kind of role the other 12 people played.
Three of them are women, sources say, and one is actually a 72-year-old man, who has been named in French reports as “Pierre B,” the ring leader.
Two of the suspects in police custody were seen in Antwerp, Belgium, where cops believe the stolen diamonds were taken.
Kim, of course, has gone almost entirely radio and social media silent ever since this crime took place.
She has been understandably shaken up over it, spending as much time as possible with her children and going over three months without updating her social media networks.
But the former sex tape actress is starting to emerge from her shell.
As you can see above, E! has released a trailer for new episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians – and it’s evident that Kim will open up about the robbery on spring installments of the program.
Moreover, Kardashian has shared a number of new photos on her official website and her Facebook and Instagram pages.
Most of them feature her at home with kids Saint and West, along with candid snapshots of Kanye West.
It’s hard not to try and read into this images, considering the many Kim and Kanye divorce rumors flying around the Internet.
Neither celebrity has released any kind of statement to assure fans that they are still happy and in love, but Kim may be trying to do that via the following set of precious pictures:
But let’s conclude with final thoughts on the crime that took place:
Kardashian’s French attorney, Jean Veil, told France 2 TV (via Reuters) that his client is “very happy, very satisfied and to a certain extent reassured by the efficiency of the French police.”
The homes of the suspects are still being searched and evidence is being seized, even as we type.
Prior to the arrests being made, there were “months of surveillance,” an insider tells Us Weekly.
We’ll continue to update this story as news breaks and we’ll continue to keep Kim Kardashian in our thoughts.
She sort of sucks sometimes, but almost no one deserves to go through what she went through that night.
