In a shock twist in the detention of 17 people over Kim Kardashian’s armed robbery, her Paris chauffer has been arrested

Kim Kardashian West’s Paris chauffer is one of 17 people detained over the gunned robbery of the star’s Paris hotel room last year.

Kardashian has been left traumatised after she was tied up and help at gun point while burglars took jewels and cash worth $10 million from her hotel room back in

October 2016.

17 suspects were picked up by French police for questioning earlier this week over the theft.

CNN reports according to the prosecutor, those being detained age between 23 and 73, and are allowed to be held for 96 hours for questioning.

Jean Veil, Kardashian West's French lawyer -

"On the one hand, it will perhaps mean the jewels will be recovered and on the other hand it puts an end to disgraceful speculation by some people, who thought it clever to pretend this robbery was a set-up or a publicity stunt by Madame Kardashian."

Kardashian’s limousine drivers - Michael Madar and Gary Madar, are being questioned by authorities, who are trying to “get them to help map out exactly how this robbery was planned and how long for."

Police are investigating whether the robbery was an inside job - with some of the suspects working for the limo company, which the family regularly uses during trips to Paris - according to French newspaper Le Monde.

Kardashian is set to break her silence over the robbery in the upcoming season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”.

In the promo, she is seen crying as she recounts the ordeal - 

"They're going to shoot me in the back.

"There's no way out. It makes me so upset to think about it."

The reality star broke her social media drought recently with pictures of her family on Instagram.
