The rich and famous can afford to install all the latest security measures, and yet burglaries are still more common in Hollywood than you might think. It can be even harder to ensure the safety of such high-profile targets when they travel abroad, as was the case for Kim Kardashian when she went to Paris Fashion Week in 2016.
More than five years after Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room, French officials are taking 12 people to trial for the crime. The defendants, accused of stealing nearly US$10 million worth of jewelry, are being charged with robbery with a weapon committed in an organized gang, kidnapping and forcible confinement, or criminal association. Prosecutors have not yet revealed their identities or confirmed who will be charged with what crime.
