Kim Kardashian has finally broken her silence about being robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room.


The star used her show Keeping Up With the Kardashians as the platform to chronicle the experience. “I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my words could be twisted,” she tweeted before the show aired.

Kardashian recounts hearing footsteps up her hotel stairs around 4:30am and assuming it was her sister or friend returning home from a party. She called out and heard no response. “And then at that moment, when there wasn’t an answer, my heart started to get really tense,” she said. “I knew something wasn’t quite right.”

She looked through the front door peephole and saw two men tying up the concierge, asking for “the rapper’s wife” in French. The concierge ended up translating the robbery because the men and Kardashian did not speak the same language. They were asking for her $4 million ring from husband Kanye West.

“They dragged me out on to the hallway on top of the stairs,” the star recounted to her sisters. “That’s when I saw the gun clear, like clear as day. I was kind of looking at the gun, looking down back at the stairs. I was like; ‘I have a split second in my mind to make this quick decision.’ Am I going to run down the stairs and either be shot in the back? It makes me so upset to think about it. Either they’re going to shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don’t, if the elevator does not open in time, or the stairs are locked, then like I’m f—ed. There’s no way out.”

Kardashian was in tears telling the story. She recalled how the men dragged her into the bedroom, and duct-taped her mouth and legs. “This is the moment they’re going to rape me. I fully mentally prepped myself, and then he didn’t,” Kardashian detailed. “I just prayed that Kourtney’s going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed.” Her last thoughts at the time were, “I have a family. I have my kids, my husband, my mom — I’m not going to make it out of here. I know how these things go.”

But luckily, and surprisingly, for the star, the two men simply grabbed her valuable possessions, threw her in the bathtub, still tied up, and left. She frantically called her family and left Paris to meet them in New York. West, who was in the middle of a concert when he heard, immediately stopped performing and flew to be with his wife.

“It’s been the most devastating thing to have one of your children fear for their life, thinking at any moment they were going to die when they have two small children,” said mom Kris Jenner. “For the rest of us, the thought of losing Kim is emotionally scarring and hard to overcome.”

An estimated $10 million worth of jewelry was stolen that night. Kardashian tweeted out a bunch of thoughts before the episode aired, warning fans that “tonight’s episode is going to be very tough for me.” See the chain below.
