LONDON - Kim Kardashian West has fled Paris after being held at gunpoint in a terrifying attack.The reality TV star left the French capital on a private jet on Monday, just hours after she was held at gunpoint in her apartment and had "millions of euros" worth of jewellery stolen.

Kim, 35, was left "badly shaken" after armed robbers fooled the concierge into letting them in by dressing up in police uniforms.

They then handcuffed him and forced him to lead them to Kim's apartment, before tying up the reality TV star and locking her in the bathroom.

A police spokesperson told CNN: "The loss amounts to several million euros, mostly jewellery. The total amount is still being evaluated."

The French Interior Ministry's spokesperson said no one was hurt during the incident, which took place at around 3am on Monday and the men did not discharge their weapons.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Kim's heroic bodyguard was not with her when the attack happened.

Kim praised Pascal Duvier as a "G" just days ago after he tackled Vitalii Sediuk when the notorious Ukrainian reporter tried to grab her in the French capital but Pascal was with her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner during Kim's ordeal.

MailOnline reports that Pascal was accompanying Kendall and Kourtney, who were partying at the Arc nightclub, but the siblings rushed back to the complex as soon as they heard the terrifying news.

It is not clear if Kim had another bodyguard with her during the incident.

Her husband Kanye West was performing in New York at the time but stopped halfway through after he was told what had happened to his wife.

During his song Heartless, he told the crowd, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Family emergency, I have to stop the show."

Kanye was the headliner for the Meadows Music & Arts Festival but a festival rep came on stage about 10 minutes after he left and said the set was cancelled as Kanye was no longer on the site.
