Rylan defended Kim.

Up to five masked men got away with millions of pounds worth of jewellery and mobile phones, leaving Kim, 35, "badly shaken" by physically unharmed.

After discussing the latest developments on the story during his ITV's This Morning showbiz slot on Monday, Rylan took a moment to blast the trolls online poking fun at the incident.

"It's disgusting," said Rylan. "There are people saying, 'Oh, it's a publicity stunt.' I'm sure the Kardashians don't need the publicity and something like that, do you know what I mean? Hopefully all is okay and nothing terrible happened."

Co-host Phillip Schofield agreed it was "scary stuff."

Plenty of celebrities have been sending support to Kim via Twitter today, including Piers Morgan, Chrissy Teigen and James Corden.

Plenty of other social media users have also been defending Kim, who has yet to comment about the incident.

Details about the ordeal are still emerging but it's been reported the men gained entry to Kim's private quarters by threatening the building's concierge at gunpoint, handcuffing him, and forcing him to show them where she was. It was initially reported Kim was staying at a hotel but now it's been claimed she was at a private property

Kim was reportedly threatened with a weapon, tied up and locked in the bathroom as at least two men entered her room and made off with valuables including mobile phones and jewellery worth millions of pounds. The gang of up to five men in total escaped on bicycles and are still at large.

Her rep said she was "badly shaken but physically unharmed."
