Kim Kardashian Paris Robbery: Celeb Speaks Up About ‘Prepping’ Herself For Rape

The Kim Kardashian Paris hotel robbery has become quite a life-changing event for the reality TV star, and she revealed new details on Sunday’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

On Sunday evening, Kim Kardashian spoke to her sisters about what really happened during the fateful night of October 3, 2016, when she was threatened at gunpoint by masked assailants posing as police officers at her hotel in Paris, France.

At the time, Kim was restrained with duct tape while armed men scoured her place for anything valuable.

While that was already a horrifying situation for anyone to be in, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared another detail that her sisters and the viewing public never knew: she was almost raped.

“Then [one of the armed men] duct tapes my face, my mouth, to get me to not yell or anything and then 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 are going to rape me.'”

According to CNN, the reality star admitted that while she was afraid for her life, she had “mentally prepped” herself should the incident actually occur.

Fortunately, the Kim Kardashian Paris robbery did not turn into a Kim Kardashian rape case as the man holding the celeb’s legs only did so in order to restrain them as he put more duct tape around her.

After dodging the rape bullet, Kim then faced another mortifying thought in her mind: death. At the time, one of the men was going to shoot her point blank.

“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 shared, adding her wish that “Kourtney [Kardashian] was going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed.”

But with a stroke of luck, the Kim Kardashian Paris incident did not have any fatal casualty. The bad news is that the robbers got millions of dollars worth of her jewelry, including a 20-carat diamond ring that is worth approximately $4.5 million.

Prior to the episode, Kim gave her followers a heads up over Instagram, saying that she prefers to share the entire story while being taped in Keeping Up instead of answering interviews for fear her “own words could be twisted.”

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

She also once admitted to being affected so much by gaining a couple of pounds when she was pregnant, even admitting on Twitter that she cannot stop eating street food as well as being criticized whenever she went out without makeup on.

“Everyone is always watching me, I’m under constant observation, everywhere I go there’s a camera following me, in the gym, when I do the shopping, and if I decide to go out without make-up it makes news throughout the world.”
