Kim Kardashian is re-telling the story of her Paris robbery on Oct. 3, 2016, three years ago. In the latest episode of E!’s True Hollywood Story, the reality star reveals the moment she thought she was going to die.
In the clip, shared by E!, Kim explains what she went through that evening.
“I was in Paris, it was fashion week,” Kim recalls. “I had been showing off my new diamond ring. Kanye got me this like twenty carat diamond ring. I brought all of my jewels, everything I possibly had to Paris with me.”
Kourtney, who was with her sister in Paris, explains that she and Kim went to the Givenchy show that day to watch Kendall walk the runway. But when they returned to the hotel room to get ready for a night on the town, Kim decided she wanted to stay at the hotel while Kourtney and Kendall went out.
“Right as I was about to fall asleep, I heard guys running up the stairs,” Kim continues. “They wanted my ring and my jewelry so I didn’t fight back I just gave them everything and they tied me up. They wrapped duck tape over my eyes and my mouth. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever been through in my life, just thinking that you’re about to die.”
The robbers got away will millions in jewelry, including Kim’s engagement ring, Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings, a gold Rolex and more. While the jewelry is replaceable, Kim feared for her life during the incident.
“You’re just kind of bracing yourself for the moment that they’re going to shoot you and kill you,” Kim recalled. “That ten minutes really changed my whole life.”
