We can’t even imagine the terror Kim Kardashian went through when she was robbed at gunpoint on Oct. 3, and a source close to the family is now detailing the fear Kim felt as she begged the gunmen not to take her life.
Kim Kardashian, 35, feared death as robbers held guns to her temple and locked her in the bathroom of her Paris apartment on Oct. 3. “She thought they were for sure going to kill her,” an insider tells E! News. As we previously reported, the reality star begged the assailants to spare her her life, pleading with them about the babies, North, 3, and Saint, 10 mos., she had at home.
We can’t even imagine how scared Kim felt in that moment, but luckily, she left the situation “unharmed,” although she was obviously incredibly shaken up, according to her rep. The robbers wound up getting away with more than $10 million worth of the 35-year-old’s jewelry, as well as her purse and iPhone, but that’s a small price to pay compared to her life.
After giving a statement to police, Kim was escorted off the property, and had already boarded a private plane back to the U.S. by Monday morning. She was noticeably not wearing her engagement ring, although it’s not confirmed if that was one of the items taken during the attack. Meanwhile, upon hearing about the robbery, Kanye West, 39, abruptly cancelled his concert mid-show in New York City, telling the audience he had a “family emergency.”
It appears that Kim was alone in her apartment when this all went down, as her sisters, Kendall Jenner, 20, and Kourtney Kardashian, 37, were out on the town with her assistant and bodyguard. So scary.
