Karl Lagerfield doesn’t seem to have an ounce of sympathy for Kim Kardashian after she was robbed at gunpoint of nearly $10 million in jewels at her Paris hotel. In fact, the Chanel creative believes she brought it on herself after flashing her ginormous 20-carat ring on Snapchat just hours before the heist.
“It’s a very bad thing for Paris,” Lagerfeld told Reuters. “I don’t understand why she was in a hotel with no security … If you are that famous and you put all your jewelry on [social media], you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room.”
Kardashian was staying at the exclusive Hotel de Pourtalès, a boutique hotel popular with celebrities visiting Paris, despite its minimal security. According to reports, her personal bodyguard was out clubbing with her sisters when the five masked men bound and gagged her before making off with her jewelry.
Added the fashion icon, who also sent Kardashian a personal note to see if she was OK, “You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you.”
Lagerfeld, who himself lives pretty lavishly, isn’t known for having much of a filter. But do you think he was right, or was he being too harsh on Kim?
