Kim Kardashian is still traumatized after being robbed at gunpoint but a member of the US Supreme Court thinks otherwise. Justice Stephen Breyer invokes that there was no robbery that took place. Instead, it would seem like a fraud case.
According to New York Daily, Justice Breyer cited Kardashian’s jewelry theft incident during an argument over a bank fraud case. The Supreme Court conducted an oral argument over the case against Lawrence Shaw when Breyer made his Kardashian comments.
Shaw got convicted for stealing money from a bank account of a Taiwanese entrepreneur. His lawyer wants the ruling overturned. During the debate, Breyer went ballistic against Shaw’s lawyer wherein he stated that Kardashian’s alleged robbers took only pieces of her jewelry even if they knew they are insured.
“Even Kardashian’s thief, if there is one, believes that all that jewelry are insured,” Breyer said. “Indeed over-insured. So it’s not theft?”
It seemed that Breyer does not buy Kardashian’s story that masked men stormed her room in Paris and took away her jewelry. Breyer went to a conclusion that it would merit fraud instead of robbery. The incident that happened Sunday shocked fans even Kardashian’s husband-rapper, Kanye West canceled his New York gig to fly to her side.
TMZ reported that Kardashian’s stolen jewelry that includes a multi-million dollar ring could be traced. The report noted that the Kardashian’s diamond-laden ring do have a microscopic number laser-inscribed on the girdle of the stone.
Hence, Kardashian needs to file a police report to get its specifications in their system. Once the item gets a cleaning, grading or even a sale, the police gets a red flag right away.
But what is most striking is that the hotel where the incident happened did not have any surveillance cameras all over the place. Investigators tried to come up with possible video of where the supposed robbers exited the area but came up dry.
