Almost a year after she was bound, gagged and robbed at gunpoint in Paris, Kim Kardashian has received an apology letter from the man who allegedly orchestrated the burglary.
TMZ’s website first reported the story, saying that Kardashian’s legal team received the handwritten letter from Aomar Ait Khedache while he was in prison.
It partly reads: “After observing your emotion and realizing the psychological damages I inflicted . . . I decided to write to you, not to obtain from you some sort of indulgence. . . . I want to come to you as a human being to tell you how much I regret my gesture, how much I have been moved and touched to see you in tears.”
Kardashian has been vocal about the Paris robbery in which millions of dollars worth of jewellery was stolen from her, on her TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians and it appears that Khedache has been watching the show in prison. He said, “Know that I fully sympathise with the pain you are enduring, your children, your husband, and your close ones.
“I hope that this letter will allow you to forget little by little the trauma that you suffered by my fault.”
The news arrives just days after the airing of the tenth anniversary special of Keeping up with the Kardashians.
In other Kim Kardashian news, the reality TV star has confirmed that she is expecting a child with husband Kanye West via surrogate.
