Kim Kardashian’s longtime best friend Jonathan Cheban has revealed he was robbed and held at gun point over the weekend.
The entrepreneur, also known as Foodgod, was with his mother and a friend in New Jersey when the alleged incident took place.
Jonathan’s rep has told People magazine that the robber allegedly stole his $250,000 Richard Mille watch, after pointing a gun at his mother’s head.
The Englewood Cliffs Police Department confirmed receiving a 911 call reporting the armed robbery on Sunday at about 8:30pm, stating the two male suspects fled on foot.
“Officers arrived on scene within approximately one minute of the report, and gained a description of the suspects from the victim and witnesses,” the news release revealed.
“Responding officers tracked the suspects with a K9 unit; however the search yielded negative results for the suspects, weapons, or proceeds from the robbery.”
“The first suspect – who is described as a dark-skinned Hispanic male, in his late 20s to early 30s wearing a purple shirt, light blue jeans, and white and grey sneakers – approached the victim in the driveway of the residence on East Bayview,” the release continued.
“As he exited his vehicle, the suspect asked him what time it was. The suspect then brandished a silver-colored semiautomatic handgun and pointed it at the victim and two other witnesses on scene.”
“The suspect then forcibly removed a watch valued at approximately $250,000 from the victim’s wrist causing minor injury to the victim.”
“The other witnesses on scene were unharmed. The suspect fled the scene on foot and met up with a second suspect described as a heavyset Hispanic male wearing a gray sweater.”
The alleged robbery comes almost four years after Kim was robbed at gunpoint in her hotel during Paris Fashion Week – when masked men stole millions of dollars worth of jewellery from her in the middle of the night.
The reality star has been open about how the incident changed her life, and she no longer flaunts flashy jewellery because of it.
