More details have emerged about Kim Kardashian's terrifying robbery in Paris since the reality star has left France and returned safely to her apartment in New York. Kim, who understandably is still extremely shaken up, has been terrified about something like this happening for a long time, according to sources. The mom of two was reportedly scared that she was going to be raped or die during the harrowing ordeal. Kim is "just happy to be alive" right now, as a source told People, but it's going to take a "very long time for her to feel safe again."


A source has revealed to E! News that Kim was gagged and bound at her hands and feet after the men broke into her Paris apartment. They then put tape over Kim's mouth and put her in the bathtub. Before her mouth was taped shut, Kim begged the robbers to let her live, telling them that she had babies at home. (Both of Kim's children, North and Saint, were in New York at the time of the robbery.) The robbers didn't speak much English, but, per TMZ, they kept saying "ring, ring" to Kim, talking about her $4.5 million engagement ring.

More from CafeMom:

The robbery happened at about 2:30 a.m. Paris time, and Kim was with her friend and stylist Simone Harouche at the time. After hearing the commotion, Harouche locked herself in a bathroom and texted both Kim's bodyguard and Kourtney Kardashian. Apparently, she couldn't dial 911 from her phone. After the assailants left, Kim ran to Harouche with duct tape on her legs and told her to jump off the balcony to get help. A short while later, police showed up, Kim gave her statement, and then she left immediately following. Kim is now at her apartment in New York with her family, and a few friends, including Jonathan Cheban and Lala Anthony, have been spotted visiting her.

Regardless of what your opinion of Kim Kardashian is, there's no denying the fact that this is terrifying and something no one should ever have to live through. Thankfully, Kim is OK and her children weren't with her. But it likely will be a while before Kim travels again, and no doubt her security is going to be beefed up 10 times over.
