Kim Kardashian's Legal Team Releases Statement About Paris Hotel Robbery


Kim Kardashian's lawyers are firing back at a journalist who claimed the robbery she experienced was just "a publicity stunt."

According to TMZ, a contributor for The Huffington Post named Sharika Soal published an article with a fake quote from Kim saying the incident was a "publicity stunt gone horribly wrong."


After looking into the story, Kim's lawyers found the journalist took the quote from a satirical website poking fun at the case.

Since hearing the news, the Huffington Post blocked the user's account so the writer is unable to follow Kim's request and post an apology on the site.

The lawyers released a legal letter detailing what really happened to Kim Kardashian the night she was held up at gunpoint:

Huffpo told TMZ they aren't involved in what happened because Soal self-published the story. Editors removed it from the site once they saw the story violated terms.

If Soal needs more evidence to know the robbery was real, footage was captured of the men escaping Kim's apartment. 

The clip is blurry, but viewers can still clearly see one of the men holding a backpack as he rides away on a bike.

Since the terrifying attack, Kim Kardashian has stayed off social media and out of the public eye. Once she arrived back to the states, she was spotted leaving New York City for the first time and looked almost unrecognizable. 

The mother of two was wearing a white sweatshirt and holding North West as she hopped into a black Escalade outside her apartment.
