Kim Kardashian Feared Being Killed During Robbery

The reality TV star has told how she genuinely feared she was going to be raped and shot dead during the infamous Paris robbery last October, which resulted in the theft of $10million worth of her jewellery.

Speaking on the latest episode of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' aired in the USA on Sunday night (19 March), the 36-year-old opened up about the terrifying ordeal. "I just said, 'Are we going to die?'" she recalls being the first words out of her mouth when the robbers burst into her private residence.

Kim, who is married to Kanye West, remembers how she was then manhandled by the robbers. "He grabs my legs, and I wasn't, you know, I had no clothes on under," she recounted during the E! show which premiered on Sunday night. "He pulled me toward him at the front of the bed and I thought, 'Okay, this is the moment they're going to rape me'."

She continued: "I fully mentally prepped myself - and then he didn't. He duck taped my legs together and had the gun up to me. I 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, I'm not going to make it out of here. I know how these things go."

She recalled pleading with the concierge, who had been forced at gunpoint to bring the robbers up to her private residence, to tell them: "They can't understand me, but please tell them I have babies, I have a family, let me live!'"

She added: "I said I don't have money. They dragged me out to the hallway on top of the stairs. That's when I saw the gun clear as day.

"I was looking at the gun, looking at the stairs...either they’re going to shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don’t, if the elevator doesn’t make it in time or the stairs are locked then I’m like f***ed. There’s no way out."

She was thankfully left further unscathed during the terrifying incident, as the robbers then put her in the bathroom before making good their escape.

In total, 17 arrests were made in what was described as the largest robbery of a private citizen in Paris in over 20 years.

Kim also opened up about how she believes she was being watched for days by the gang. "What I think happened now, after thinking about it so much, is that there was probably a group of guys that were following us the entire trip," she revealed in a chat with her sisters on last night's show.

"I was Snapchatting that I was home and everyone was going out, so I think they knew Pascal [Duvier] was out with Kourtney and that I was there by myself...They had this window of opportunity and just went for it."

In a police statement, one of the thieves admitted that they had planned to rob Kardashian during a previous visit to Paris but got cold feet at the last minute.
