Kim Kardashian’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, who legally changed his name to Foodgod was robbed at gun point in New Jersey on Sunday.
The 46-year-old victim, who had “Foodgod” tattooed on his arm told local police he had just arrived at his friend’s house around 8:30 p.m. in Englewood Cliffs when a guy approached him and the two people with him in the driveway and asked him for the time.
The armed robber then pulled out a silver semiautomatic handgun and pointed it at the trio. At one point, the gun was pointed on his mom’s head who was with him at the time of the robbery.
The thug went for Foodgod’s pricey Richard Mille wristwatch and forcibly removed it from his wrist, authorities said. Foodgod suffered minor injuries in the scuffle, they said.
The gunman then fled on foot and met up with an accomplice before both men disappeared, officials said.
Celebrities sometimes fall victim to armed robbers because of their expensive items. In 2016, Kim Kardashian was robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry at gunpoint in a Paris hotel room, thereby prompting Foodgod to hire extra security during January’s Paris fashion week.
