The concierge who was also held up at gunpoint with the star is claiming the thieves didn’t come there for Kim’s massive ring, but to come up on some quick cash instead. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Abdulrahman said that the robbers “were there for money.”
He continued, “When she saw police, because they were dressed like police, she didn’t understand for a few seconds.” Abdulrahman added that the language barrier complicated things because the thieves were speaking in French and Kim initially thought they wanted her phones.
He continued on, “[The robber] said, ‘I don’t need phones,’ in French, but Kardashian didn’t understand him, and the guy was asking for money, money, money. She showed her hand, there is no ring, and the guy is like, ‘Where is the ring?’ At the moment she gave him her ring, it was on the table close to the floor she gave the ring to the guy, and he put it in his pocket.”
Abdul, who ultimately took the men to Kardashian’s door, says that despite taking the diamond, the thief continued to ask for money. He told Inside Edition, “If he was there about the ring, I think he would not be talking [to] us about money.”
Still, no arrests have been made in the bizarre case. Check out a clip from Abdul’s interview above.
