Kim Kardashian's Paris Hotel Thief Shows No Remorse and Blames Her for the Traumatic Heist

“They should be a little less showy toward people who can’t afford it,” he says.

One of Kim Kardashian‘s  infamous robbers, Yunis Abbas, who was part of the 12 men arrested in connection to the 2016 heist, has spoken up about the incident, blaming the reality star.

“They should be a little less showy toward people who can’t afford it,” Abbas told Vice in a new interview. “For some people, it’s provocative.”

Abbas revealed he didn’t know too much about Kardashian at the time; however, he was familiar with her then-husband, Kanye West AKA Ye. Kardashian was visiting Paris for Fashion Week when the heist occurred, which resulted in her being tied up with her eyes and mouth duct-tape shut as they stole $11 million USD worth of jewelry at gunpoint.

Abbas elaborated on planning the crime, revealing he found Kardashian’s social media posts, in which she showed off her jewels, to be helpful. “I saw one of her shows where she threw her diamond in the pool, in that episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” he added. “I thought, ‘She’s got a lot of money. This lady doesn’t care at all.’”

He remains unfazed by the incident despite admitting he knows she was traumatized. He said, “Since she was throwing money away, I was there to collect it and that was that. Guilty? No, I don’t care. I don’t care.”

Kardashian has opened up about the heist several times, claiming the incident traumatized her. She admitted she feared she was going to get raped or killed. Since then, the heist has changed her social media approach.

“I might take a photo, save it, post it when I leave the place or when I’m in a different location, because I don’t think that worked out for me so well when I was posting every last detail,” the beauty mogul said on The View back in 2017. “I’ve learned from experience.”

That same year, she told Ellen DeGeneres how the heist also changed her perspective on materialistic things, adding that she doesn’t “care about that stuff anymore.”
