Kim Kardashian Finally Breaks Her Silence On Paris Robbery
It's the episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that everyone has been waiting for and it didn't disappoint; six months after being held at gunpoint in her Parisian apartment, Kim Kardashian West has finally revealed exactly what happened that night.
While older sister Kourtney and mum Kris Jenner opened the emotional show with how terrifying Kim's ordeal had been, it was the 36-year-old's account that sent shivers down viewers' spines.
Explaining that she first thought it was a drunk Kourtney arriving home, Kim said she soon realised something was off.
“I’m calling to them, like, ‘Hello! Hello! Hello!’ and there’s no answer,” a pale Kim remembered. “My heart started to get really tense. Like, you know your stomach just kind of like knots up and you’re like, ‘Okay, what’s going on?’
“I knew something wasn’t quite right.”
Even more frighteningly, Kim revealed, was that at one point she thought her attackers were going to sexually assault her.
“He grabbed my legs – I had no clothes on under there – and he pulled me towards him at the front of the bed and I thought, ‘Okay, this is the moment he’s going to rape me’,” the reality star continued. “I fully mentally prepped myself and he didn’t.
“He duct taped my legs together and then they had the gun up to me, I knew that was the moment they were totally going to shoot me in the head.
“I just prayed that Kourtney’s going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed.
“I have a family. I have my kids and husband, my mom, I’m not going to make it out of here. I know how these things go.”
“They then picked me up and put me in the bathroom and then ran.”
Tonight's episode is going to be very tough for me. However, I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my own words could be twisted. I have always shared so much & I'm not going to hold back when this was probably one of the most life changing experiences for me. I would never wish this experience upon anyone, but have learned some valuable lessons & feel so blessed to be safe home with my babies & husband. To my friends, family, and loved ones I can't thank you enough for being there when I needed you the most. To the French police, thank you for your incredible hard work. *This was our last family photo taken in Paris
And that was when Kim began contacting her family; Kourtney remembers getting a call from Kim “screaming for help at the top of her lungs”, while Kris says that night was “one of the worst nights of my life”.
“As I was talking to her, I was trying to wake everybody up, throwing on sweats, being frantically upset and in shock,” the self-professed momager tearfully explained.
“When I pulled up to her hotel, I just remember throwing my arms around Kim and thinking, ‘She’s alive’.
“We were all so traumatized that we left Paris before the sun came up.”
If anything, though, it seems Kim’s ordeal has made the already tight-knit Kar-Jenner clan even closer.
“It’s all replaceable,” Kim told Khloe and Kourtney during the emotionally charged show. “None of it matters.”
