Kim Kardashian: the heroine of Pauline Delassus' shocking story

La Nuit De Kim Kardashian

You thought you knew everything about the American star with 150 million followers on Instagram ? Hang on your seatbelts. Because in her investigation The night of Kim Kardashian , journalist Pauline Delassus lifts the veil on the course of this businesswoman and on the extraordinary robbery of which she was the victim in October 2016 in Paris . The opportunity to learn more about a star more subtle than she looks.

Heist of the Century

A clash of two worlds. It is difficult to better describe this night of October 2016 which pits the billionaire star against Omar , the alleged mastermind of his Parisian robbery of 9 million euros.

Star of organized crime, accustomed to cells and weapons from an early age, everything separates this sixty-year-old man in the outrageous Hollywood universe from the busty brunette. So much so that Omar only learned of Kim Kardashian's existence a few weeks before the heist.

After being molested, threatened by a weapon and tied up in the bathtub of her hotel room by the five robbers involved, Kim Kardashian says she is still the victim of violent attacks of anxiety and insomnia. Fortunately, her husband Kanye recently managed to get her back to Paris. Phew!

A self-made woman

Behind her butt, Kim Kardashian does have an IQ . While OJ Simpson's goddaughter dreams of becoming a lawyer today (she hopes to obtain the California bar in 2022), her first steps in showbiz had a different face.

Far from rolling on gold during her childhood, long considered the pooch of Paris Hilton , it is thanks to the famous sextape of 2007 that Kim comes out of anonymity and sows a doubt that still remains: who really made it public this intimate tape? Certainly herself, since the sale of the video has brought her five million dollars and especially allowed her to leave her small clothing store to devote herself to Keeping Up With the Kardashians , the show that earned her all her notoriety. thereafter.

A sacrifice well carried out since today, the princess who was believed to be a pouf worked hard to gain her power of influence and create her empire around a family matriarchy. Efforts that have earned him to surround himself with the greatest: from Bianca Jagger to creator Pierre Hardy through gallery owner Thaddaeus Ropac , Kim K has no need to be ashamed of his heart.

Add to that several makeup and underwear brands under his belt, and you've got a Marketing Genius 2.0 who now makes $ 45 million a year.

A very pious woman ... and feminist

Do not be fooled by appearances. Behind her dizzying cleavages and rikiki bikinis that struggle to cover her busty forms, Kim Kardashian prays every day and recites graces before every meal. Like his father Robert, who died in 2003, Kanye West's wife is Protestant and goes every Sunday to church.

Because for this glamorous icon, it is possible to fight for his values while selling makeup. They and her sisters “ prove it and refer criticisms on the sexualization of their image to morality ,” says Pauline Delassus . Kim even shouts out loud that she feels deeply feminist : “ I have the feeling that I am doing a lot more in this sense than some people who say I am. ”To the best of my mind ...

A star committed to touchy subjects

Besides lipstick and contouring pencils , Kim K also knows how to talk about things that annoy. Since the change of sex of her mother-in-law Caitlyn Jenner , the diva has spoken out on respect for LGBT rights but also on other subjects that are particularly close to her heart such as the Armenian genocide and the limitation of arms sales .

His last militant victories ? The release of seventeen detainees including a sixty-three year old woman. “ Her investment in the case of inmate Alice Marie Johnson, for whom she obtained a presidential pardon, has turned her into a Madonna of American prisoners ” explains Pauline Delassus. Prepare to call him Master Kardashian .
