Five months after Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, the reality star has opened up for the first time with details of the horrifying ordeal. On yesterday's Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim recounted the scary night of October 3, 2016, in which she feared that she would be killed.
As E! shares, Kim was by herself in her Paris apartment—after enjoying Paris Fashion Week with sister Kourtney—when she heard footsteps in the wee hours of the morning. She called out, thinking it was Kourtney or her assistant (who were out partying), but heard nothing. "There wasn't an answer, my heart started to get really tense," Kim said. "I knew something wasn't quite right." She says that two men dressed in police uniforms walked into her apartment. They handcuffed a man she recognized as her apartment's concierge. "He ended up being our interpreter because I couldn't understand them, they couldn't understand me," she says of the concierge.
Kim tried calling her bodyguard but the robbers grabbed the phone away from her. The robbers asked for Kim's ring (in French), which she gave them. They dragged her to the hallway and she had to decide whether to run for it (and potentially get shot) or stay. "I was looking at the gun, looking down back at the stairs," she said. "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—but either they're going to shoot me in the back or if I make it and they don't, if the elevator doesn't open in time or the stairs are locked, then I'm f*cked! There's no way out."
The robbers dragged the mother of two back into the apartment. Kim says that she begged the concierge to translate a message to the robbers: "I have babies. Please, they can't understand me, but tell them I have babies at home," she said. "Please, I have a family. Let me live!" One of the intruders duct-taped Kim's mouth and she feared that should would be sexually assaulted. "And then, he grabs my legs and I wasn't, you know, I had no clothes on under. He pulled me toward him at the front of the bed and I thought, 'OK, this is the moment they're going to rape me,'" she said. "I fully, mentally prepped myself—and then he didn't."
She said that he held the gun up to her head and she mentally prepared to die. "I just knew that was the moment. They're just 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."
Later, Kim says that she believes that the robbers had followed her all Paris Fashion Week. She says she put a lot of information on Snapchat about being alone in the apartment. Because her apartment is on the first floor, she believes that the robbers knew when everyone left the unit except her. The robbers allegedly told the concierge, "Where's the rapper's wife? Let us up to her room" when they hijacked the building.
