Kanye West Wanted For Jewelry ‘Insurance Scam’

French police have summoned Kanye West to Paris for questioning as a suspect in the Paris robbery case after more evidence emerged suggesting the jewelry theft was an "inside job."

Kanye West is wanted for questioning by police as a suspect in the Paris robbery case after more evidence has emerged suggesting the jewelry theft was an “inside job.”

Police believe somebody close to Kim Kardashian helped tip off the thieves and Kanye West, though performing at Meadows Festival in New York at the time, has been summoned to the French capital for questioning.

A police source, describing the case as “one of the strangest” they have worked on, said Kanye has “been evasive” and has yet to agree to dates for his hearing.

The bad news for Kanye is that the United States does have an extradition treaty with France, although there has been a history of reluctance on both sides to honor it.

However if French authorities provide enough evidence that the robbery was an “inside job” insurance scam, there will be enormous heat on Kanye to appear in Paris and clear his name.

Kardashian’s former bodyguard Steve Stanulis also believes the official story reported by the media is “fishy.”

He said, “I would say it’s either an inside job or publicity stunt. That hotel is so secure, somebody must have tipped them off that she was alone inside, or shown them a way in.


First thought as soon as I read this ‘story’ was this is a bullshit insurance scam. Kanye was complaining he’s broke and needs millions just a couple months ago, now 11 million dollars of jewelry happens to get stolen. No witnesses? No cameras in the hotel? No security, just one concierge? Why would she have $11 million dollars worth of jewelry on her? This reeks of a scam.

Kanye, 39, who believes anyone who lives within their means “suffers from a lack of imagination,” declared he was $53 million in debt in February this year.

Detectives are satisfied that the robbers could have easily tricked their way into Kardashian’s apartment block, [but] it is not clear how they got into her actual flat,” the source said. “The baffling part of the inquiry is how the robbers got into the apartment. Of course it’s possible they tricked their way in, but at that time of the [early morning] it’s unclear who actually opened the door.

The source added that the entrance to Kardashian and husband Kanye West’s apartment in the secretive, luxury building known as the Hôtel de Portals is “armored” and “easily locked from the inside.

Kim showed off her weighty engagement ring and a diamond-encrusted grill on Instagram just hours before the robbery.

We are dealing with a young woman who was practically alone with a hugely valuable amount of jewelry,” the source continues of the “strange” investigation. “She would never open the door in the middle of the night in these circumstances, so who did if it wasn’t opened with a key? There were no signs of forced entry, but there’s also no proof that a key was used.”

Jeanne d’Hauteserre, mayor of the eighth arrondissement of Paris, in which the apartment is situated, believes it is likely that a local gang was involved.

There have been a number of attacks in recent times, notably of watches, and then of people attacked in their own apartments,” d’Hauteserre said. “Now that this is all a big news story, we hope that the famous gang or gangs will be dismantled and arrested.


Snopes have attempted to debunk claims that Kanye is wanted for questioning in connection with the Kim Kardashian robbery, citing the fact that no “credible” mainstream media sources have reported on this story.

The pseudo “fact checking” site, proven to act as a propaganda outlet for the likes of Hillary Clinton, failed to ask Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and the French police for any information on our claims – proving yet again that Snopes are a mouthpiece for the corporate left-leaning elite, whilst presenting themselves as a bastion for truth in the digital web of deceit and outright lies.

    Of course it was a publicity stunt done for money that’s all their about.

  • Mira

    that is one self absorbed family, always about money.

  • Katos

    It was fraud, plain and simple. She reported the robbery and immediately left for New York. She always has dozens of posse with her as well as security personnel? This whole story stinks to high heaven, and I hope they stick her fat ugly ass in jail?

  • BrendaS

    I hope they took that stupid looking “grill.” How ridiculous looking!

    • Sandra J. Smith

      lol – that’s funny but true

  • BrendaS

    Ironic that she would take a picture, clearly of the ring, RIGHT before she was robbed. They know she can use this for insurance purposes. I’m betting the real ring was still at home or she had it with her when she hurried out of France. She won’t be able to wear it ever again if she turns it in for insurance $$.

  • billhoidas

    also there is no way she could have had her wrists tied with zip locks PLUS duck tape around the zip locks AND her mouth duck taped and gotten out in 6 minutes. Probably could never had gotten out until she was discovered. And of course she wouldn’t have opened her apartment door at 2:30 AM. The fact that she was naked except for a bathrobe but not raped indicates the participants were smart enough not to leave DNA.

    • gary

      probably did not want the social diseases associated with her… ew got a bad case of the KK’s that a shot won’t clear up!

  • Bridget

    He is just weird full of himself self centered and thinks he is God. I hope he loses it all. And Kim is my least favorite. She is fake .she acts to privileged . I likeep other two the younger ones the one wants to be Kim. The mom did this to all the kids and she even pushed her husband into thinking being a woman was what he needed to be better and noticed. I liked Bruce as Man and down to earth guy and father. Now as a woman he is a bitch like his ex wife.. at first I loved the show they were funny silly joked and normal family now it isn’t like that

  • Doris

    I just hope if this is a scam on the family’s part that they get what is coming to them. I do not think it is the whole family i do believe it is with Kanye Kim and Kris. Good luck to all. So sad for the kids if if this would come out to be true. None of this story makes since!

  • nickdave

    Is not surprising that the french accusing Kanye. Even if kanye didn’t get involved but the French would have found a way to get him involve… THAT’S THE FRENCH THEY ARE RACIST AND THEY HATE WHEN A BLACK MAN HAVE A LOT OF MONEY.

    • gary

  • eddie Caughlin

    I figured he was behind it from the start, pathetic human beings . Plain greed

  • Dennis V

    Didn’t that uppity nigger try to start a ‘Go-Fund’ me page, trying to raise 10 mil?

  • gary

    Well, Kanye did say he was going to leave the US if Trump got elected. I guess its not going to matter who got elected now. His arse is outta here! And whoever in the Paris PD is responsible for jailing Kim and getting her fat ass of the TV, I will personally come there and buy you a beer!

  • Toxophilite

    So anyone living within their means has no imagination? You mean like you do with $53 million in debt?

    Maybe you should stop imagining you matter.
