On Sunday, Kim Kardashian West was allegedly bound, gagged, and robbed of $10 million worth of jewelry and cash at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room. You've probably at least sort of heard this already, because whether you're a lover, hater, or couldn't care less-er of the Kardashians, a jewelry heist pulled off by 5 men dressed as cops from a (presumably) heavily guarded penthouse suite in a French luxury hotel is pretty interesting.

Some people speculate the burglary was an inside job, mainly because the hotel concierge led the thieves to West's suite and, at the time, her most trusted bodyguard was guarding the bodies of two of her sisters at a nightclub.

Others are wondering if it really happened at all or if it was just a publicity stunt. After all, the Kardashian/Jenner family are reality TV stars. On the other hand, they're also famously wealthy, so if you wanted to steal stuff, they're a pretty good target. For example, there was that new $4.5 million diamond "engagement" ring* from her husband she'd been showing off on a social media just a few days before (note: I'm not saying she shouldn't have showed it off, I'm just saying that she did).

West, for her part, reportedly thinks it's nuts that anyone would question the veracity of her claims. A source told E! News, "It's crazy to her that people, even for a second, think she is fabricating this story. . . She feels like no one understands her and what she been through."

Now, according to TMZ, West plans to cut back on showing off all her fancy stuff (a.k.a. "flossin'"), allegedly saying, "Material things mean nothing. It's not all about the money. It's not worth it."

Whether or not the thieves will be caught and the jewels found remains to be seen. Quick question, though: has anyone checked with George Clooney?
