The concierge at the hotel Hôtel de Pourtalès where Kim Kardasian was held at gunpoint has finally spoke out about the incident and his fears for security at the luxury hotel that went unanswered.
"I was behind the desk. The door was closed, but it is glass and they told me to open the door, making a motion behind the door," the man, going by the name Abdulrahman out of fear for his safetly, tells The Daily Mail.
"I saw police [uniforms], the hats, also the police jackets, with reflective badges, like the police have. I told them to open it because it was open, and he asked with gestures, he made me come to open the door. So I came to open it and just when I opened it, he grabbed me and handcuffed me."
He continues, "In the first seconds, I thought they were policemen making an intervention. I told them, I'm working here, what is wrong? After that he questioned me, where is the security video? At that time, I said s--t, it's a robbery."
Abdulrahman says the men threatened to kill him if he didn't cooperate.
"At first I looked at them and one got very angry. He asked me to put my head down and never look at him again," he says. "He repeated, never, never look at me, or I will kill you. I saw that two of them had guns, then I just looked down."
The man also claims that the hotel’s security is very relaxed, and that the security code for the front door had not been changed since 2010.
“There was no real security at all. It’s a choice. The hotel doesn’t mind about security. We told them years and years before, you have to make a camera, you have to put [in place] a security process, about keys. Nothing was locked, there was no proper security there.”
Kim Kardashian has remained out of the spotlight since the incident, with her assistant, Stephanie Sheppard, releasing a statement via her app overnight.
"Hey guys. So you may have noticed we haven't updated the app in a couple weeks," Sheppard wrote. "Keeks is taking some much-needed time off."
"But not to worry -- we've called upon Kim's closest friends, fam and yours truly to serve up some exclusives," the note continued. "Stay tuned for new posts and app takeovers! Thanks so much for your support for my girl."
