Moments after Paris cops responded to the robbery scene at Kim K’s apartment where jewels worth $10m were taken, someone secretly recorded a video of Kim. According to Radar Online, who obtained a copy of the video, the reality television star, 36, is seen sitting on a couch and calmly video-chatting on a cell phone.
TMZ however states Police are now investigating to find out who recorded the video:
“The video shows Kim on a couch, wrapped in blanket while FaceTiming with someone. Police are combing the luxury pad for evidence … apparently unaware that someone in the apartment is shooting video, which would be a major violation of French privacy laws.
Our sources tell us Kim’s legal team is now working with French authorities to determine who was behind the camera. The issue is, in France it is illegal to film someone in a private setting without their consent. We’re told police believe this video fits that description. The video was posted on websites this week, but Kim’s legal team shut it down immediately by sternly reminding the outlets the footage is illegal.
If Kim or others who were present can finger the camera operator, and cops locate the culprit … he or she could face a year in prison and be fined the equivalent of about $50k.”
Radar Online has confirmed that they took down the video after they were contacted by Kim’s legal team.
“The video accompanying this article has been removed because of a legal threat from Kim Kardashian, and the article revised accordingly. We do not believe, however, that either the video or the article accuse Ms. Kardashian of “faking” the Paris robbery, as her attorneys have claimed, and which we did not intend. Rather, they raise legitimate questions about the events at issue, questions which many media outlets and many other people have also raised. We apologize to Ms. Kardashian for any implication otherwise.”
