Kim Kardashian’s robbery is one of the few things in her life that was not captured on camera.
Sources connected to the case tell us … there was no surveillance video inside or outside the hotel premises.
The only video available is police surveillance footage. Problem is, we’re told the camera doesn’t face the front of the building and the robbers evaded the lens.
We know police had canvassed the area looking for video from nearby businesses but came up dry.
TMZ has learned only 1 cell phone was stolen from Kim’s apartment, not 2 as widely reported. We’re told the phone in question did not have “compromising information” and was remotely wiped.
Kim, who was staying at The No Address Hotel, was held at gunpoint early Monday morning in her room by masked men dressed as police officers.
She was in her bathroom while five burglars took a cell phone and approximately $10 million worth of jewelry, including a $4 million ring
“[Kim] was tied up, and gagged with duct tape wrapped around her head. They put plastic ties around her wrists but she managed to squeeze her hands out of the wrist ties by wriggling her hands,” a source close to Kardashian West tells PEOPLE.
“She was hysterical but not screaming as she knew she had to keep quiet to survive,” the insider shared, adding, “The reports of her fear of being raped are real. She really did think she was going to be raped. She had a gun to her head the whole time.”
After freeing herself, Kardashian West “screamed from the balcony” and was heard by her close friend Simone Harouche, a separate source says to PEOPLE. Harouche, a former Kardashian stylist, was in a nearby room but was not present during the break in. “[Simone] was downstairs and called Pascal (Kim’s bodyguard) not knowing what was going on asking if everything was OK,” the source explained.
We’re thankful everyone is unharmed.
