PARIS — A spokesperson for the French police unit that investigates crimes against famous people is asking residents of the capital to keep their eyes open for a black bra that was stolen from superstar Kim Kardashian.
On Sunday, Kardashian, 35, survived a horrifying ordeal during which when five men dressed as police officers burst into her Paris hotel room and tied her up. After taking jewelry estimated to be worth $10 million, the robbers loaded the loot into the nearest large clothing item, which happened to be the bra.
“Ze breakers-in, ze men who aggressed Mme. Kardashian West, zey took her thing that supports the breasts,” said Lt. Jean-Louis Mantard of the elite Crimes Contre Célébrités (CCC) unit of the national police. “You know what I mean? They have stolen her boob harness.”
An Instagram post shows the dejected star mourning the loss of her favorite bra.
The report goes on to say that once the bra cups were laden, the leader of the gang threw the bra over his shoulder “like a continental soldier.”
Mantard says the crooks likely ditched the bra and that it might have been found by schoolchildren who would undoubtedly mistake it for a fishing net. He is also asking the public to look out for the top portion of Kardashian’s trousers, which are also believed to have been stolen, but probably in a separate incident days before the hotel robbery.
