French Authorities Arrest 16 Suspects In Connection To Kim Kardashian Robbery

A DNA sample on the tape used to bound Kardashian gave away the identity of one of the suspected assailants. 

Multiple arrests have been made in connection to the robbery of Kim Kardashian at a Paris celebrity mainstay, French authorities announced.

On Monday (Jan. 9), NBC News reports a total of 16 people were arrested for their alleged involvement in the robbery. Kardashian, 36, was robbed at gunpoint by a group of men who infiltrated Hôtel de Pourtalès in October. The reality star was tied and placed in a bathtub as the men got away with wallets a cell phone, a ring worth $4.5 million and a jewelry box with other items worth $5.6 million. Some of the suspects aged 50 to 72 and are notorious career criminals. The Daily Mail adds three of the suspects are women who trailed Kardashian before her stay at the mansion. A DNA sample from the tape used to gag the reality star also gave away the identity of another suspect.

The Paris prosecutor's office confirmed the suspects will be held for 96 hours for questioning before being charged or let go. Kardashian was "badly shaken but physically unharmed," and went on a social media hiatus that ended over the holidays. Over the weekend, the trailer for the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians was released showing Kim dealing with the robbery and the hospitalization of husband, Kanye West.

Kardashian will more than likely travel back to France to help assist in the open investigation.

Kodak Black Pleads Guilty To Charges In Federal Weapons Case

Kodak Black reached a plea agreement in the federal gun case accusing him of lying in order to purchase firearms. The “ZeZe” rapper pleaded guilty in a Miami federal court Thursday (Aug. 21), the Associated Press reports.

As Bossip reported last week, Black attended a “change of plea” hearing on Thursday. He has since pleaded guilty to double counts of falsifying statements on a federal gun application. Black, who has remained locked up being arrested during the Rolling Loud Music Festival in May, initially pleaded not guilty to the charges.

His request for bond was denied in May, after a judge deemed him to be a “danger to the community.” Per the Miami Herald, Black was denied bond again during Thursday's hearing.

Federal prosecutors allege that Black lied about being a felon in order to buy two handguns, and a semi-automatic Mini Draco from a Miami gun shop on two different occasions. One of the firearms purchased by Black was found at the scene of a shooting in March, according to AP. Black also faces charges sexual assault and drug and gun charges in separate cases.

The 22-year-old recording artist was born, Dieuson Octave, but legally changed his name to Bill Kapri last year. Due to his plea deal, prosecutors are expected to push for a shorter prison sentence, TMZ reports. Multiple reports claim that Black could face up to 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.

A sentencing date has been scheduled for Nov. 13.
