Hillary Clinton has said she feels "really bad" for Kim Kardashian West following the reality star's armed robbery ordeal in Paris.

The politician is currently on the campaign trail as the Democratic presidential candidate in the US but found time to chat about Kim K during an interview with the Extra entertainment programme.

"I felt really bad for her," said Hillary.

"She's home now, right? And her husband, [Kanye West], he was in the middle of the concert and he ran offstage, bless his heart. It's horrible. I'm just glad nobody was hurt."

Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim has publicly endorsed Hillary in the past.

Hillary isn't alone in sending well wishes to Kim: others who have spoken out in her support include James Corden, Chrissy Teigen and our own Rylan Clark-Neal.

Kim, 35, was left "badly shaken" but physical unharmed when a gang of masked men dressed as police officers gained entry to her Paris luxury apartment in the early hours of Monday morning.

She was bound, gagged and locked in a bathroom while the men made off with millions of dollars worth of jewellery, including a £2.5m ring that Kanye had just bought Kim.

Kim flew back to the US later that day after giving a statement to police, who have suggested the thieves may have targeted her after she showed off the jewels on social media.

"It was really the celebrity who was targeted, with possessions that had been seen and noticed via social media, and it was these goods that the attackers targeted," said a police rep.

Kim's rapper husband Kanye, 39, had been in concert in New York when the incident took place. He stopped his show mid-set, telling the audience he had a "family emergency."
