Just before Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint and robbed of millions of dollars in jewelry in Paris earlier this month, the concierge at the hotel was handcuffed by the assailants and taken upstairs to where Kim was staying.
Now, the concierge named Abdulrahman, who prefers to be mentioned by only his first name for security reasons, is speaking in his first-ever on-camera interview since the robbery.
Abdulrahman claims that the robbers dressed as police who stormed Kim's room weren't initially after jewelry.
He claims that they were after cold, hard cash instead.
The concierge sat down with Entertainment Tonight, recounting the incident, saying,
Abdulrahman went on to reveal that there were communication issues between Kim and the robbers since the robbers only spoke French and Kim only spoke English.
She first thought they were looking to steal her phones, according to the concierge. Abdulrahman continued,
Even after Kim forked over her incredibly pricey ring gifted to her by Kanye West, Abdulrahman said one of the men continued to demand money, adding,
When news first broke regarding the robbery, most people speculated that Kim Kardashian had been targeted after flaunting her expensive jewels on social media.
After hearing Abdulrahman's take on the robbery, they might have had a different motive after all.
As more information continues to surface following the robbery on October 2, the investigation is still ongoing. Still, no arrests have been made.
In the meantime, Kim Kardashian has been spotted around Los Angeles keeping an extremely low profile.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Kim Kardashian was robbed of about $11.2 million in jewelry. Previous reports stated that the jewelry stolen from Kim was worth anywhere from $4 million to $10 million.
While it might seem like the robbers hit the jackpot, jewelry appraiser Joseph DuMouchelle says it'd be extremely hard for them to capitalize on the robbery like most people might expect them to.
DuMouchelle spoke to ET, saying,
Nice try, crooks.

Feel better soon, Kim!
