Kim Kardashian believes that one of the robbers who held her hostage in Paris was trying to ‘give her a signal’.
The reality star opened up about the armed robbery during an appearance on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman season three.
She described the thoughts that raced through her head as she was attacked in their room at the Hôtel de Pourtalès.
The events took place during Paris Fashion Week in 2016 and saw criminals steal jewellery worth $10million (£7million) as Kim’s bodyguard was with her sisters at the time.
Kim believed at the time, that one of the robbers was trying to give her a signal as he kept asking her is ‘she was ok’.
‘I kept looking at the concierge because I didn’t know who he was. I’m like “what is happening, are we going to die?”,’ Kim began.
‘The guy kept whispering to me “are you ok”, this one guy, the guy that didn’t have the gun, like “if you just shhhh, you ok”.
‘He couple hardly speak English but I was like, “is he giving me a signal”, so much goes through your head.’
‘I have watched every single CSI show on the planet so for one split second I am like “look into his eyes, what colour eyes do you have, what colour hair” you’re trying to do what you’re supposed to do and it all goes out the door,’ Kim added.
The 40-year-old went on to explain that the two robbers were dressed as policemen, and they had ‘brought in the concierge from downstairs handcuffed, with a gun up to him’.
‘They were yelling at me in French, so I just sat up and they kept saying “the ring, the ring” and I was like “what” it didn’t compute to me for a minute,’ she continued.
‘I put it next by the side of my bed so I grabbed it and gave it to him.’
Kim broke down in tears as she recalled the fear of being raped by the armed robbers.
She told the host: ‘He grabbed me and I was wearing a robe and I wasn’t wearing anything under it.
‘He grabbed me and pulled me towards him, so I was like, “ok this is the time I’m going to get raped”.
‘But then he tied me up with handcuffs and zip-ties and duck-tape, and then he taped my mouth and my eyes.’
Kim has spoken of the traumatic events before and said in 2019 that she felt she was to blame for the robbery.
‘I definitely see the things that I brought on myself, the biggest being the robbery,’ she said. ‘
Just being flashy and oversharing my every move on social media. ‘But I enjoy my life. Someone said to me the other day, “What is it like being you?” It’s awesome.’
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman season 3 arrives Wednesday 21 October on Netflix.
