Kim Kardashian West breaks silence on Paris robbery
The 36-year-old reality TV star was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last October and admitted that she had been worried about her trip even before she left America.
In testimony obtained by French newspaper Le Monde, Kim said: “For two weeks before we left, we were already afraid we might be victims of a terrorist attack if we left the country, and not only by going to Paris.
“When Kourtney [Kardashian] had a passport problem, I thought to myself that something bad was going to happen. I had this foreboding. I want to tell you this because it was such a strong feeling – every night in Paris I said a prayer of thanks that nothing had happened to us.”
When the attackers entered her hotel room, Kim initially believed it was her sister Kourtney and assistant Stephanie Sheppard returning from a night out.
She said: “Then I saw two guys in police uniform come in with the concierge. They were aggressive … I thought they were terrorists who had come to kidnap me.”
And Kim admitted that she has no current plans to return to Paris.
She said: “I have a feeling that it’s not the right place for me, I mean Paris. It’s not a place for me on the emotional plane.”
Le Journal du Dimanche has also obtained testimony given by Kim, in which she described her ordeal to police.
Speaking previously, Kim admitted she “knew something wasn’t right” just before the whole terrifying incident happened.
She recalled: “I’m calling to them [her sister and assistant], like, ‘Hello? Hello?’ And there’s no answer. And then at that moment when there wasn’t an answer, my heart started to get really tense. Like, you know [when] your stomach just kind of knots up and you’re like, ‘OK, what’s going on?’ I knew something wasn’t quite right.
“[I saw] two guys holding another guy down, in police uniforms, right outside of my bedroom, five feet away … The guy came in and grabbed the phone from me, threw me on the bed, and I was like, ‘This is it.’ I couldn’t understand them, they couldn’t understand me. What I’ve heard from talking to [the concierge] afterwards is they said, ‘Where is the rapper’s wife? Let us up to her room.'”
She reportedly said: “They grabbed me and took me into the hallway. I was wearing a bathrobe, naked underneath. Then we went in the room again and they pushed me on the bed. And, it was this time, they tied me up with plastic cables and taped my hands, then they put tape over my mouth and my legs.”
