Kim Kardashian Tearfully Recounts Paris Robbery: ‘They’re Going to Shoot Me In the Back’
Kim Kardashian slowly re-emerged as a public figure after she was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel back in October 2016, but she has provided little comment on the harrowing incident — until now.
The second Season 13 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians found the reality star recounting the terrifying ordeal through tears to her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney.
In the clip, Kim says she was dozing upstairs in the hotel when she "heard pounding up the stairs." She called out thinking it was Kourtney and a friend returning, but there was no answer.
Kim tells her sisters, "I knew something wasn't quite right," and that's when she saw two men in police uniforms holding a third man down just outside of her bedroom. Not knowing how to dial for an emergency in France, she tried to call (now former) bodyguard Pascal Duvier,
"And then the guy came and grabbed the phone from me, threw me on the bed," Kim said, "and I was like, 'this is it.'"
'"What I've heard from talking to him afterward is they said, you know, 'Where's the rapper's wife? Let us up to her room!' in French," Kim said. "He ended up being our interpreter because I couldn't understand them, they couldn't understand me."
"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.'" Kardashian tearfully recalled. "And I fully mentally prepped myself and then he didn't and he duct taped my legs together."
Since the wave of initial arrests for Kardashian's robbery in January 2017, ten suspects have since been charged in connection with the crime, CNN reports.
