New York, NY — October 26, 2016 – In a television exclusive airing on Thursday and Friday, INSIDE EDITION’s Megan Alexander speaks with Abdulrahman, the concierge at the center of the Kardashian heist, who reveals that much of what’s been reported about the crime is inaccurate.

 

Abdulrahman was in Kim’s room during the heist and tells INSIDE EDITION that the thieves weren’t after jewels – they wanted money. But he says that because of the language barrier Kim thought they were asking for jewels, and that she actually offered them the ring, which was on her nightstand. Abdulrahman says, “He was asking for money. She believed that he was there for the ring. It was on the table. She gave it to him. He took it like, ‘Oh this is nice,’ and put it in his right pocket.”

 

Reports speculated that Kim was targeted after she flashed her ring on Snapchat, but Abdulrahman says the thieves didn’t even know her name. He explains that when they arrived they were trying to figure out what famous guests were in the hotel. “They said, ‘Where is the rapper’s wife?’ He doesn’t know her name,” he says.

 

Abdulrahman goes on to say that he thinks the burglars were amateurs and not part of the Pink Panther gang. “What I’m sure of is that those people are not professionals,” he says.
