French Police Are Questioning Kim Kardashian West's Driver Over Paris Robbery

News that they 27-year-old limo driver was the last one to ferry Kardashian around before the October 3 incident and that he would have known where she was headed that night. "Taking time off after the robbery has really changed Kim - and for the better", a source told PEOPLE last week.

The arrests, which also included a 72-year-old gangster and three women, were made after DNA was taken from a diamond-studded pendant dropped by a member of the gang, according to The Telegraph.

Kardashian was tied up, gagged and robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room on October 3 while visiting the city for its fashion week.

Kardashian broke her silence about the crime this weekend, saying she was afraid she was going to be killed by the robbers.

Us Weekly reports that Kardashian's French lawyer, Jean Veil, told France 2 TV (via Reuters) that his client is "very happy, very satisfied and to a certain extent reassured by the efficiency of the French police".

The 17 people held for questioning are between the ages of 23 and 73 and can be held for up to 96 hours for questioning, the prosecutor said. Authorities used DNA evidence left at the scene as well as surveillance footage to get leads on the five men who were at the residence during the theft, during which at least $9 million in jewelry was taken while Kim was bound, gagged, and held at gunpoint. Several major French networks are reporting that the driver, who is reportedly 27 years old, is among those arrested.

Kim Kardashian's infamous Paris robbery may have been an inside job, new reports suggest. Which is probably why she is eager to get back into work, and will reportedly make her first official public appearance since the attack when she attends makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic's Master Class in Dubai. The once-active TV personality became more reclusive and clammed up on social media, where she used to post frequent naked selfies and other provocative images of herself. She feels very grateful that she has been able to spend the past few months just focusing on her kids. Others are said to be in their 60s, hence the name given to them in the French press as "Grandad gangsters" (Papys gangsters).

"As time went on, she realised that she actually loved her slower life".
