Either staged for a insurance payoff, or she is really stupid. Nobody with that level of money in jewelry would go out in public, in a foreign land no less, with the real thing. Use fake substitutes. Low risk and still fools people from a distance.

I would have though she was constantly surrounded by security. I'm not the larcenous type, but I think I would go after a softer target. YMMV

One of the worse is no video or even pics posted of the robbery

If it's not posted it didn't happen.

One version I heard is that the robbers were pros who just want rob and not do physical harm. A quick theft then get out. Those darn jewelry thefts. But in another version, she begged (scary stuff) for her life.

You'd think there should be good security footage and the place was a mansion.

I'll give her the benefit of the doubt until I see a gas station with a damaged poster.

Be nice if Kim and the rest of being famous for being famous, would fade into oblivion.

But then what would the tabloids be worth? And, what would the world of patsies do for intellectual stimulation?

Give this a week. Once when TMZ does their research, we'll know exactly what happened whether things were fabricated or not.

Like the Lochte thing, I'm happy no one got hurt.

I'm sure she will sell her story for millions and people will gobble it up. How someone like this has gained such prominence in society is beyond me.
