Caitlyn Jenner, Karl Lagerfeld, and More Speak Out on Kim Kardashian’s Robbery
“Love my girl! After hearing the full story, I’m so thankful she’s okay,” wrote Jenner. “It’s a reminder for us all to be careful in the uncertainty of this world.”
Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld also commented on Kim’s robbery after his Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week, blaming her lavish display of wealth as the reason for burglars wanting a piece of her fortune.
“I don’t understand why she was in a hotel with no security and things like this,” said Lagerfeld. “If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room. You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.”
Lagerfeld added that he felt that the crime against Kim has tainted the city’s prestige.
“Image-wise I think it is very bad,” he said. “We make all the efforts to make Paris appealing and then, apparently [the robbers] were people from the east. Eastern Europe.”
In the same video, Courtney Love shared her opinion on the matter.
“As a friend of hers, I feel very, like, horrified,” said Love. “And even if I wasn’t her friend, I would be horrified. It’s disgusting. It’s horrific and terrifying.”
TMZ reports that discussion of Kim’s robbery even made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court. When a man from California argued that draining someone’s bank account “wasn’t bank fraud” because the bank’s money is insured, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer responded, “Even Kardashian’s thief, if there is one, believes that all that jewelry is insured. So, it’s not theft?”
Breyer took the metaphor one step further by asking the man if it would be fraud if the robbers posed as jewelry cleaners. So there you have it: Everyone is concerned about Kim’s well-being.
