October 3, 2016…a day that will live in infamy.
Also known as the day Kim Kardashian was bound, gagged, and held at gunpoint while several thieves scavenged her apartment and made off with over ten million dollars of the reality TV star’s jewelry.
Today, the Agence France-Presse reported that 16 people were arrested in the Paris robbery.

Sources later upped that number to 17 suspects arrested, one being Kim Kardashian’s limo driver the night of. The chauffeur, age 27, was lead directly to the No Address Hotel with the clueless Kardashian in tow.
It is thought that the driver fed details to his highly-trained co-criminals, most of whom were well-known to police. The police can hold the suspects for up to 96 hours before charging them or having to let them go.
Since October 3rd, Kardashian has stayed out of the limelight and off of social media until this past week when she posted on Instagram and Snapchat. Not to be over-shadowed by E! previewing clips from Season 13 of Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s, where Kim is shown visibly upset, retelling her family the series of events leading up to the attack stating her thoughts in the moments were, “They’re going to shoot me in the back. There’s no way out.”
It seems that the Kardashian’s knew the early-morning raids were coming, and it was time to re-acclimate to “reality.”
