It was an absolute nightmare for Kim Kardashian when five men attacked and robbed her on Oct. 3, but the reality star managed to stay alive by keeping her cool as she was bound, gagged and held at gunpoint. Find out how she fought for survival during the terrifying ordeal here.
We can’t even imagine the fear Kim Kardashian, 35, felt when masked, armed men entered her Paris apartment, tied her up and locked her in the bathroom. “She was hysterical, but not screaming, as she knew she had to keep quiet to survive,” People reports. “The reports of her fear of being raped are real. She really did think she was going to be raped.”
Her plan to stay quiet worked — the men absolutely terrified her by holding a gun to her head and robbing her, but she left the situation physically unharmed. After the robbers stole a $6.4 million jewelry box, $4.3 million ring, iPhone and purse, they left the building, and Kim was able to somehow free herself from the restraints and call out to her friend Simone Harouche, who was staying in another room, for help.
At that point, Simone had already gotten ahold of Kim’s bodyguard, Pascal, who was out with Kourtney Kardashian, 37, and Kendall Jenner, 20, at the time of the robbery. The 35-year-old gave a statement to police, then immediately headed to the airport where she boarded a private plane to New York City, where Kanye West, 39, and her kids were waiting for her.
Obviously, Kim is still completely shaken over the incident, and has been “bursting into tears every few minutes” ever since. Meanwhile, Kanye has rescheduled two of his Saint Pablo tour dates so he can spend more time with his wife as she recovers.
