French authorities believe two men — one posing as a plainclothes detective and the other as a photographer, tailed Kim Kardashian in the days leading up to the armed robbery of $11 million worth of Jewelry in Paris, a report indicated.

As reported by JammedUp News, Kim Kardashian was bound, gagged and held at gunpoint by several armed suspects in Paris, France on Monday.

Police believe the stick-uptick up crew had help from the inside given the fact  the suspects managed to evade security cameras.

TMZ reported on Tuesday that police found no surveillance footage of the jewelry heist.

Investigators also believe the suspects targeted the ring Kim Kardashian had earlier uploaded on Instagram.

Moreover, a report published by the Daily Mail., revealed in the days leading up to the horrifying raid, one of the suspects attempted to gain entry to Kardashian’s Hotel de Pourtalès room.

”The assailants tailed Kim Kardashian for at least three days before the robbery,” a source close to the French police investigation told the

“We know there was one man pretended to be a photographer had followed the American reality T.V. star on a motorbike to find out her whereabouts,” the source said.

Meanwhile, another male suspect who pretended to be plain clothes cop attempted to get a table near Kardashian at the upscale Ferdi restaurant on Thursday night,” the source said.

The publication reported that the suspect posing as a photographer was challenged by real photographers, who caught him trying to listen in on their conversations.

Additionally, when Ferdi employees asked to see the fake credentials, he immediately fled the restaurant.

The source told the MailOnline that “We know the license plate of one of the vehicles used — a Fiat 500 — and a photograph of one of the suspects. They both appear to be French and highly professional.”

The source said investigators firmly believe the robbery had to be the work of a sophisticated international criminal organization, who would seek to reclassify the stolen jewels, to “resell them again.”

Another Police source detailed how investigators were shocked how Kardashian and her family were extremely under protected before the armed heist occurred.

“[The Kardashians] had three bodyguards to protect five members of the family staying at two different locations while flaunting their jewelry for everyone to see on the internet. Clearly, this wasn’t enough,” the source said.

Also according to the Telegraph, the Kardashians warned each other of the threat of posting their whereabouts on social media.

A source close to the family told E! that Khloé Kardashian had previously suggested her sisters should scare 19-year-old Kylie Jenner, 19, by “holding her at gunpoint,” in order to teach her a lesson to stop posting her location on Snapchat, since she’s been stalked in the past.

A second report revealed on Tuesday that Kim Kardashian, who was gagged with duct tape, had managed to wriggle her hands-free from the plastic ties used to bound her wrists and ran to her hairstylist Simone Harouche, who hid downstairs in the two-story hotel apartment after hearing the commotion.

“Simone texted Pascal Duvier, and Kourtney Kardashian,” a source told E! News “She couldn’t dial 911 from her phone.”

Duvier was 2 miles away with sisters Kourtney and Kendall, at the Arc nightclub.

“She was hysterical but not screaming as she knew she had to keep quiet to survive,” a source close to the reality TV star told People Magazine.

“The reports of her fear of being raped are real. She really did think she was going to be raped. She had a gun to her head the whole time,” the source said.

According to the Daily Mail, Kardashian had attempted to call her bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, when the armed suspects snatched her phone from her hands.

Once the team of French-speaking robbers made off with the jewelry,Kim Kardashian screamed for help from the balcony of her room.

Authorities finally arrived and had Kardashian give a statement from Kardashian before she immediately jumped on a private jet which flew her to New York.

Additionally, the stick-up crew, who had also held the concierge at gunpoint, robbed a $4.5 million diamond ring she had earlier showed off in a Snapchat post and also snatched a box containing another $6.7 million in jewelry before fleeing the scene on rented bicycles.

French Police are eying an Eastern European gang as the chief culprits and also believe the crew had inside help but refuse to say whether any members of her security detail remain under suspicion.
