Kim Kardashian's Paris limo driver 'released by police with no criminal charges'

Kim Kardashian’s trusted Paris driver wasn’t in on her traumatic robbery as previously reported. The limo company where Michael Madar is employed is speaking out on behalf of their driver and they say he was never a suspect to begin with. Instead, UNIC Worldpass, the company who employs the 40-year old driver, claims that he was brought in by French police to give them testimony pertaining to Kim’s robbery case.
When Madar was initially taken into custody, it was assumed that he was part of the huge sting that ended with 17 people under arrest as Parisian officials continue to investigate Kim Kardashian’s Paris robbery. According to TMZ, Madar has since been cleared of all suspicion and released. If the robbery was an inside job, officials don’t think he is their man.

The Los Angeles Times reported that 17 individuals were arrested by French police on Monday. Among them were Michael Madar and his 27-year old brother Gary Madar, both of whom work for the limo company used by Kim Kardashian. According to the report, Gary was driving Kim around on the night she was robbed.
Of the rest of the suspects who were arrested in the early hours of Monday morning, five of them are known burglars. The suspects, whose ages ranged from 23 to 72 years old and include three women, were arrested after several raids in multiple locations in and around Paris. During the raids, almost $150,000 in cash was found along with multiple guns.
Upon their arrest, French authorities have 96 hours to either charge the Paris robbery suspects with a crime or let them go. That means law enforcement should be pressing charges soon and if they don’t do it by Thursday, they may be forced to let those suspected of robbing Kim of more than $10 million in jewelry go free.


The Paris robbery took place on October 3 when Kim Kardashian and her sisters were in town for Paris Fashion Week. Kim reportedly sent her security guard off with Kendall and Kourtney because she wasn’t planning on going out again that night.
Prior to the theft, Kim had stayed at the Paris No-Name hotel many times and her husband Kanye West kept a temporary residence there for quite some time so she felt safe staying in her suite by herself.
