It's day three of the Kim Kardashian West armed robbery aftermath and theories, stories and new information is continuing to swirl.

The 35-year-old is now home in the US after the terrifying incident in Paris, when masked men forced their way into her private apartment, tied her up, threatened her at gunpoint and made off with several million dollars worth of jewellery.

Among the stolen items were a £2.5 million ring and jewellery box worth £4.4m.

Kim was "badly shaken" but physically unharmed.

Here's the latest updates:

Kim's bodyguard Pascal Duvier makes a statement

Pascal has found himself making headlines as fans question why he wasn't with Kim at the time. It's been reported he was guarding Kim's sisters Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian instead.

He's made a statement (via Daily Mail) which reads: "The events that occurred in Paris was one of the most sickening things I have seen or heard. We have tips and leads and we will find you. That I promise you... you messed with the wrong one."

Kylie and Caitlyn Jenner criticised for social media posts

The first two members of the Kardashian Jenner family to return to social media since Kim's attack were her youngest sister Kylie, 18, and stepdad Caitlyn Jenner, 66. Neither referenced the incident.

Instead, Kylie shared a photo flaunting her bum in a swimsuit, while Caitlyn spoke about "having fun" with Kylie at a car show. Some fans condemned the pair for being insensitive.

Karl Lagerfeld sends support to Kim but questions flaunting wealth on social media and lack of security

Chanel legend Karl Lagerfeld has sent a note to Kim reading, "Dearest Kim, we are all with you." He also told reporters: "I don't understand why she was in a hotel with no security. If you're that famous and you put all your jewellery on the internet then you go to a hotel where nobody can come near to the room.

"You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you."

Kim is 'blaming herself' for putting her expensive ring on social media

Only one mobile phone was stolen

It was initially reported two phones were swiped from the apartment, but TMZ claims it was just one and there's no danger of sensitive information being released as it was "remotely wiped" as soon as it was taken.

Mystery over how the masked men got into Kim's apartment

A source told Us Weekly that detectives are baffled how the men gained entry to the apartment as there is "no proof" of a key being used or the door being forced. An insider said: "We are dealing with a young woman who was practically alone with a hugely valuable amount of jewellery.

"She would never open the door in the middle of the night in these circumstances, so who did if it wasn't opened with a key? There were no signs of forced entry, but there's also no proof that a key was used."

There is no CCTV from the apartment

According to TMZ, there were no CCTV cameras inside the luxury private apartment block so the thieves were not caught on camera inside the building.

She will go back to Paris
