A source reported on Tuesday (4th October) that cops in France have had some serious questions regarding the robbers entering her residence while her security were absent.

‘French police suspect that the five alleged robbers had some contact with her security and were tipped off about her procedures,’ says the source.

‘They knew there was no security [with her inside her apartment that night]. All they had to do was go in, make contact with someone inside the hotel.

‘They have issues with story of more than one worker at the hotel. They are also talking to bodyguards who worked with her earlier in the week.’
