Kim Kardashian broke down the harrowing details of her Paris robbery on Sunday night’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

Kim Kardashian feared she would be raped and murdered while being held at gunpoint, she revealed, speaking out for the first time six months since the harrowing Paris robbery.

The 36-year-old reality star tearfully recalled the terrifying incident Sunday night on an emotional episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” in which she was held hostage while armed robbers made off with millions in jewelry last October.

“The guy came in, grabbed the phone from me, threw me on the bed and I was like, ‘This is it,’” she told sisters Kourtney and Khloe.

Kim said she was in bed alone inside her suite in Paris on the evening of Oct. 3 while Kourtney and model Kendall were out partying at a club. She heard footsteps “pounding” up the stairs when two men dressed in masks and police uniforms came in. They handcuffed the hotel concierge, who Kim says was in the room with her during the incident, and served as a translator.

“‘Are we going to die? Are they going to kill us?’” the mother of two recalled asking. “I was just crying and like, ‘tell them I have babies.’”

Then one of the armed men duct taped her mouth shut so she couldn’t scream.

“He grabs my legs and I wasn’t, I had no clothes on under [my robe] and he pulled me towards him at the front of the bed and I thought, ‘okay, this is the moment. They’re going to rape me,’” Kardashian said, crying. “And I fully mentally prepped myself and then he didn’t and he duct taped my legs together.”

“Then they had the gun up to me and I just knew that was the moment they are just totally going to shoot me in the head,” she continued. “I just prayed Kourtney was going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed.”

Instead, the robbers left the reality star in the bathroom and fled with $10 million worth of jewels, including her $4 million 20-karat Lorraine Schwartz emerald cut diamond engagement ring, from Kardashian’s Paris apartment.

Meanwhile, West, who was in Queens for a concert, abruptly left the stage after an assistant told him about his wife.

Kourtney, right, was in a nightclub with Kendall when a frantic Kim called them.


“If anything had happened to you, I wouldn’t have stopped until they were dead,” the rapper said on Sunday’s episode.

Kourtney said Kim called her screaming. Kendall ran out of the club.

“Being woken up in the middle of the night with that call was probably one of the worst nights of my life,” she said.

“When I pulled up to her hotel, I just remember throwing my arms around Kim and thinking ‘okay, she’s alive.’”

Jenner’s first thought, she said, was to bring her daughter her favorite blanket “like that would make it all go away.”

“I just prayed that Kourtney’s going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed,” Kardashian said she thought while being held hostage.


“You can’t begin to explain the emotions running through your mind when you get a hysterical call from one of your children because she’s just been assaulted,” she said.

The episode chronicled happier moments before the robbery of the family enjoying their time at Paris Fashion Week.

Seventeen people were arrested in January in connection with the crime. Seven were released, four were indicted on Jan. 12 for charges including robbery, kidnapping and being in an organized gang. The other six were charged on Jan. 13.

Ahead of Sunday night’s show, Kim revealed it was a “very tough episode.”

"However, I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my own words could be twisted,” she tweeted.

“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.”
