These are the stories making headlines on Tuesday.

"The whole thing sounds made up."
The robbery that allegedly took place at Kim Kardashian's 8th arrondissement residence has somewhat eclipsed the goings-on of Paris Fashion Week, but some industry insiders remain unconvinced of the legitimacy of the crime, or blame the reality star for bringing it upon herself: "She tagged herself there. Criminals can have Instagram too," said one anonymous American editor. "Well, she should stop Instagramming pictures of herself in her hotel bathroom," added another. {The Hollywood Reporter}
