One of Kim Kardashian’s favorite Paris chauffeurs is off the hook after getting arrested, along with several others, on Monday in connection with Kim’s jewel heist. TMZ says that the driver, Michael Madar, has been released from custody without being charged. Michael, seen above holding an umbrella in an attempt to keep Kim from melting, was arrested along with his brother Gary Madar.
Michael and Gary sometimes drive the Kardashians when they come to Paris, and Michael was the last person to drive Kim before she got robbedy. Police thought Michael might have been in on the suspected inside job, but the company he works for, UNIC Worldpass, tells TMZ that he was in custody for testimony purposes only. Gary Madar, on the other hand, might be a different story. The Daily Mail says he’s still in custody.
The police are still interrogating the robbers, but it sounds like one thing they might be giving up on is finding Kim’s gaudy jewels. Sources tell TMZ that Kim’s legal team has been told by police that her jewelry – including the $4 million diamond ring Kanye West gave her – is pretty much le gone. Police claim that most robbed diamonds are shipped off to Belgium and then disappear. I’m sure Kim and Kanye don’t really care. After all, having Kim covered in millions of dollars worth of jewels would really klash with the “pretend poor” aesthetic they’re going for on social media.
