Police believe the Kim Kardashian robbery was an inside job

There’s also no surveillance footage from in or around the apartment building.

French authorities investigating the shocking robbery of Kim Kardashian believe it was an inside job, TMZ reports.

The Paris police and the Kardashian family think someone with inside knowledge tipped off the criminals that Kim was without her bodyguard Pascal Duvier.

As TMZ reports:

“Police and the Kardashian family don't believe it was a coincidence that Kim was bodyguard-less at the time the robbers showed up and somehow made their way into her apartment ... they think the robbers were tipped off it was the right time to strike.

“There was a very small window when the robbers had easy access. Kim had friends over until shortly before the incident went down. Kim's bodyguard was always by her side -- to the point Kim joked that it got annoying -- except for the few hours he left to protect Kourtney and Kendall in a nearby nightclub.”

We know what you’re thinking, and no, Pascal is not a suspect – apparently they know for sure he was not involved.

Maybe even more intriguing is the fact that police have not been able to secure any surveillance footage of the hotel. A source told TMZ there were apparently no security cameras in the hotel (which seems weird for any hotel, especially a luxury building where multi-millionaires stay?) and a police street camera was not facing the front of the hotel. No nearby businesses have been able to provide footage either.

The investigation continues as Kim, Kanye and other members of the Kardashian family are holed up in Kimye’s luxury NYC rental.
