Abbas is currently on trial for allegedly taking $10 million worth jewelry from Kardashian (now 41) more than five years ago. In an interview with NBC, he revealed his lack of remorse. Vice News, which aired Saturday, August 20,

“I honestly didn’t really know her. I knew her husband. Kanye West, but I didn’t know her,” Abbas said. “But I saw one of her shows where she threw her diamond in the pool in that episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians. I thought, ‘She’s got a lot of money. This lady doesn’t care at all.’ Since she was throwing money away, I was there to collect it, and that was that.”

While he conceded that there was “no doubt” Kardashian was traumatized after the incident, Abbas asserted that he doesn’t feel any guilt, declaring, “Guilty? No, I don’t care. I don’t care. … [Celebrities] should be a little less showy toward people who can’t afford it. For some people, it’s provocative.”

During the interview, he recalled how Kardashian’s active social media presence aided the group in planning the robbery, during which the California native was allegedly tied up and put in a bathtub.

“We got in through the little door that was open on the inside,” he claimed. “As soon as we got in, we took control of the concierge. We overpowered him. We tied him up.

Like, deal, this is gonna happen, just prepare yourself,’” she said through tears. “So, I did and then — I don’t know why I’m crying, I’ve talked about this before — and then he tied me up with handcuffs and zip-ties and then duct tape and duct-taped my mouth and my eyes.”

The SelfishDuring the robbery author had one thing on her mind: her sister Kourtney Kardashian. “I kept on thinking about Kourtney, I kept on thinking, like, ‘She’s gonna come home and I’m gonna be dead in the room and she’s gonna be traumatized for the rest of her life,’” Kim recalled, adding that she was “totally fine” now. “I remember calling all my sisters from the car, we were on a conference call. I’m like, ‘Guys, thank God that was me. I’m very mentally strong and that would have f–ked all of your lives up for the rest of your life.’”
