Kanye West: Did He Stage Kim Kardashian's Robbery?

by at .

After Kim Kardashian was held at gun point and robbed in the Paris apartment she shares with husband, Kanye West, people are wondering all sorts of things.

For example, was the robbery an inside job?  Did the apartment concierge tip off thieves?

Others, of course, wonder if the whole thing was staged.

Setting aside the obvious fact that a mother-of-two was bound, gagged and thrown into a bathtub fearing her for her life, some believe West is behind the heist.

Did West set up the robbery to collect insurance on the $10 million worth of jewelry that was stolen?

Was he trying to help his family boost ratings on their struggling reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians?

This, according to The Sun, is what some people believe.

Last February, West made it public that he was $53 million in "personal debt," having poured so much money into his clothing line and other business endeavors.

"I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart...," he tweeted.

"my dreams brought me into debt and I’m close to seeing the light of day…"

Some users on Twitter voiced their opinion on the robbery being staged.

"Funny thing about this Kim Kardashian robbery is that I bet camera crew caught everything on tape," user @FunSkipBayless tweeted.

"Ratings will be awesome next season."

Paris police suspect that Kardashian's social media presence made her a target.  

The reality star was in the city for Fashion Week, and shared several photos of her couture pieces and jewelry via Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram.

Kardashian realizes the mistake she made in flaunting her wealth.

"Material things mean nothing," Kardashian reportedly said, according to TMZ.

"It's not all about the money. It's not worth it."
