The alleged mastermind behind the Paris robbery of Kim Kardashian West apologized to the celebrity in a handwritten letter, according to TMZ.

TMZ reports Aomar Ait Khedache—who is suspected to have led the heist last October in which five men stole two cellphones and $10 million in jewelry after binding Kardashian West in a bathtub—sent a letter written in French to the Kardashian West legal team expressing his regret.

After observing your emotion and realizing the psychological damages I inflicted … I decided to write to you, not to obtain from you some sort of indulgence,” he wrote. “I want to come to you as a human being to tell you how much I regret my gesture, how much I have been moved and touched to see you in tears.”

The news follows the arrest of the 60-year-old alleged ringleader after his DNA was found on the material used to bind and gag Kardashian West. A total of 10 suspects—including Kardashian West’s chauffeur’s brother Gary Madar—have now been charged in connection to the robbery, according to the Sun.

“Know that I fully sympathize with the pain you are enduring, your children, your husband, and your close ones,” Khedache wrote. “I hope that this letter will allow you to forget little by little the trauma that you suffered by my fault.”

TMZ reports “sources close to the situation” have said Kardashian West “found his words hollow,” but the reality TV star has not publicly commented on or confirmed the letter as of press time.
