Suspected Kim Kardashian robber feels no guilt: ‘I don’t care’

A man involved in the 2016 jewelry robbery targeting Kim Kardashian has no regrets about the incident because the beauty mogul “threw money away.”

In an interview with Vice about high-profile robberies made possible by social media, Yunice Abbas, one of the five men who allegedly robbed the reality star, detailed what he and his associates did to pull off the operation who was allegedly being held at gunpoint by Kardashian. tie her up and lock her in a bathroom of her rented apartment during Paris Fashion Week.

While Abbas believes Kardashian was traumatized by the attack and said “you don’t get away with it unscathed,” he doesn’t seem bothered by it.

“Since she threw money away, I was there to collect it and that was it,” he told the interviewer in French. “Guilty? No, I don’t care. I don’t care.”

A Kardashian representative did not immediately respond to the Times request for comment Monday.

Abbas is among those awaiting trial in the case, but was released early for health reasons. He told Vice he was caught for leaving his DNA at the scene when he overpowered a guard at the Hôtel de Pourtalès.

“I took his hands, tied him up and left my DNA in the process,” he said. “Since I already had a file, it was very easy to track me down.”

Abbas, along with a group of suspected attackers, tracked the movements of the Skims founder online and through social media. As in the tell-all book he published about the robbery, Abbas also detailed how he and the alleged robbers gained access to Kardashian’s home and room.

“We came in through the little door that was open on the inside,” Abbas told Vice. “As soon as we walked in, we took control of the concierge. We overpowered him. We tied him up. But then we looked for the keys to the bedroom where she lived.

“I stayed downstairs but my two colleagues went upstairs with the concierge to go to Madame Kardashian’s room,” he said. “Then they picked up the jewelry. They went downstairs. Ms. Kardashian’s secretary called for help. But she called 911 in the United States, which scared us, which wasted a lot of time. And when we got out there was a bunch of cops outside who didn’t know anything about the robbery.”

(In his book, Abbas mocked the person who made the call.)

Abbas also told Vice that he vaguely knew Kardashian because of her estranged husband, rapper Kanye West. But he did catch a glimpse of her TV show.

“I saw one of her shows where she threw her diamond in the pool on that episode of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,'” he said. “I thought, ‘She has a lot of money. This lady doesn’t give a damn.’”

Meanwhile, the alleged mastermind behind the robbery was Aomar Ait Khedache, who wrote Kardashian an apology letter from his prison cell, saying he regrets his actions and is aware of the psychological damage he caused, according to the Associated Press.

The mother-of-four, 41, kept a low profile for months after the incident but has slowly returned to the spotlight. In 2020, during an emotional meeting with David Letterman, she spoke candidly about the incident, revealing that she thought she might be raped during the robbery, then became paranoid and struggled with trauma and anxiety.

“It definitely took me a year where I got really paranoid because people knew my whereabouts,” she said. “I didn’t even want to go to a restaurant because I thought someone will know I’m in that restaurant. They’ll take a picture, they’ll send it, they’ll know my house is open, they’ll know my kids are there.”

“I was really scared of everything,” she added. “I can’t sleep at night unless there are half a dozen security guards in my house and that has become my reality and that’s fine.”
