Karl Lagerfeld Weighs In On Kim Kardashian West's Robbery

There's been plenty of commentary surrounding the robbery of Kim Kardashian West in Paris earlier this week (you can read everything we know about the incident so far here). Many are questioning whether or not it was an inside job, or a complete hoax altogether, some are blaming her lack of security and now, Karl Lagerfeld has spoken out overnight saying that Kim's flaunting of wealth was to blame. 

The 83-year-old Chanel designer spoke to reporters after the brand's S/S17 show yesterday and weighed in on the controversy, saying, "I don't understand why she was in a hotel with no security and things like this. If you are that famous and you put all your jewellery on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room. You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you." 

Just hours before the robbery took place, Kim was on Snapchat and Instagram and her 20-carat diamond ring from Kanye was clearly on display, which is likely what prompted Karl's comments.

However, on Monday, Karl Instagrammed a picture of himself with a handwritten note to the reality star that read "Dearest Kim, we are all with you" so we can only assume that Karl is still firmly on Team Kim despite his comments.

Caitlyn Jenner has also spoken out about the events, writing on Instagram, "Love my girl! After hearing the full story, I'm so thankful she's OK. It's a reminder for us all to be careful in the uncertainty of this world." Best friend Jonathan Cheban also spoke to press on his way into Kim's New York apartment, simply saying, "She's not doing so good." 

Still no comment from Mrs West herself at this time.
