Details of The Kardashian Robbery
Kim was tricked by the robbers, who were dressed as police officers. They handcuffed the concierge of The No Address Hotel where she was staying and forced them to open Kim’s private room. They locked her in her bathroom and stole jewelry that was worth around $10 million. Kim was not harmed in the incident.
Thanks to recent roles in award-winning dramas, Matthew McConaughey has gone from a rom-com star to a household name. Many don’t know that thieves stole $2,000 in cash as well as his cellphone from his hotel room, all while he was asleep!
