New York (CNN)Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West has left France after being held at gunpoint and robbed by men dressed as police officers in her private apartment in Paris, French officials said.

A spokeswoman for Kardashian West said the celebrity was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” following the incident, which took place early Monday morning local time.

The French Interior Ministry said five men threatened the apartment building’s concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open the private apartment.
Two of the men were able to gain entry to Kardashian West’s room, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office, and a gun was held to her head.
She was locked in a bathroom while the men took two cell phones and jewelry worth millions of dollars, the Interior Ministry said.
Jewelry, phones stolen
The prosecutor’s office said a ring worth an estimated 4 million euros ($4.49M) and a jewelry box worth about 5 million euros ($5.6M) were among the items stolen.
Kardashian West was in France for Paris Fashion Week, along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. She was staying at a private mansion in Paris, according to CNN affiliate BFM TV.
The French Interior Ministry said no one was hurt during the incident and that the men did not fire their weapons. It’s not clear if Kardashian West’s family, including her two young children, were present at the time.
Kardashian West left France later Monday after speaking with police, an Interior Ministry representative told CNN.

Just a few hours before the robbery, Kardashian West attended the Givenchy runway show where her sister Kendall was walking. Kim and Kanye are very close with Givenchy’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci. “Kimye,” as the couple is collectively known, visit Paris regularly and also held part of their lavish wedding there in 2014. The couple hosted their rehearsal dinner at Versailles, with Lana Del Rey performing.

It hasn’t been an easy week for the reality star. In Paris Wednesday, Kardashian West was rushed by prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who tried to kiss her famous rear end. Sediuk, who has pranked celebrities such as Bradley Cooper, Will Smith and Gigi Hadid, was immediately tackled by her bodyguard.
