Kim Kardashian Spoke About Her Robbery For The First Time, And People Got Emotional

The latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians saw the star open up publicly for the first time about her ordeal.

1. In the latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we witnessed the lead-up to and aftermath of the Paris robbery, where Kim was held up at gunpoint.

2. Opening up for the first time about the ordeal, Kim tearfully recounted the events in a confessional and to her sisters, telling them how she feared she was going to be raped and killed.

She was tied up on the bed, with her mouth duct-taped. Assuming the perpetrators would kill her, Kim said she “prayed Kourtney could lead a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed”.

3. Needless to say, it made for highly distressing and emotional viewing for fans.

Never thought I would cry during an episode of @KUWTK but here we are #kuwtk
