The hotel concierge who was held at gunpoint along with Kim said in a new interview that the masked men who raided the star's apartment initially asked her to give them her cash.

AceShowbiz - New details about Kim Kardashian's Paris robbery have emerged, this time thanks to the hotel concierge who was held at gunpoint along with the reality TV star. Speaking to ET for his first on-camera interview after the incident, the man named Abdulrahman revealed that the thieves initially weren't interested in Kim's jewelry.

The concierge claimed that the culprits only wanted Kim's cash at first. "When [Kim] saw police, because they were dressed like police, she didn't understand for a few seconds," Abdulrahman said. He went on explaining that Kim and the robbers had trouble understanding each other because she didn't understand French.

She even thought that the thieves wanted her phones. "[The robber] said, 'I don't need phones' in French, [but] he doesn't understand English, and also she didn't understand French, and the guy was asking for money, money, money," he recalled.

"She believed that they were there for her ring. She showed her hand ... there is no ring, and the guy is like, 'Where is the ring?' At the moment she gave him her ring - it was on a table close to the floor - she gave her ring to the guy ... and he put it in his pocket," he continued.

But one of the men continued to ask Kim to give them her money. " 'Where is money, money, money?' For him, it was just a ring, I think ... he didn't stop asking for money," Abdulrahman shared, adding that the robbers then took her other jewels after he told them Kim didn't have a lot of cash.

"They weren't there for jewels at first, they were there for money," Abdulrahman concluded. "He put the jewels in his [backpack] and he left the bag open, that is why he lost some jewels and the gold in the hotel."

As previously reported, Kim was held at guinpoint, tied up and gagged in the bathroom of her Paris apartment as the robbers stole her jewelry, including the $4 million diamond ring from her husband Kanye West which she flaunted a lot on social media. Three weeks have passed since the terrifying night, but no arrests have been made.

Kim, who Abdulrahman said was "screaming like hell" during the robbery, has been spending her time away from the spotlight but is gradually returning to her normal self. Earlier this week, she was spotted stepping out for fro-yo and was seen filming "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" at Kanye's L.A. concert.
