When masked men broke into Kim Kardashian’s hotel room in Paris this past Monday, they weren’t alone. A concierge manning the entrance to the hotel was first threatened at gunpoint to lead the assailants to Kardashian’s door, before they broke in and stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry.
According to TMZ, the reality star and concierge were held together for some time during which she asked him, “Are we gonna die?” In Kardashian’s statement to the police, she reportedly said he responded very calmly with, “I don’t know.”
His behavior apparently raised a red flag for Kardashian, who reportedly became suspicious of his calm demeanor during the distressing incident. To clear his name, the concierge, now a key witness in the case, has penned an open letter to Kardashian.
“Dear Kim: When you feel the cold steel of a gun at your neck, it is the moment when remaining calm can mean the difference of life or death, both our lives,” he wrote in a letter published in French magazine Closer, according to TMZ. “I hope you are feeling better.”
After the robbers had stolen Kardashian’s belongings and bound and gagged her in the bathroom, they reportedly took the concierge with them as they exited the room, leaving him in the lobby handcuffed and alone.
