Madar, 40, is the owner of Unic Worldpass, the chauffeur company used by Kim Kardashian and her family in Paris while his brother Gary, 27, worked for the firm on and off.
Michael Madar was released from police custody in Paris without charges shortly after midnight, a source close to the investigation has confirmed. He was ‘speechless’ to learn that his brother had also been held, the source said.
The source told MailOnline: ‘Michael has taken the news really badly. Michael had no idea that Gary had somehow become involved.
Investigators have been given 96 hours – four days – to interview the suspects.
