Watch from 1:42 to hear Kim speak about the moment.
Kim Kardashian has opened up about how she mentally prepped to be raped and shot in the head during her ordeal in Paris last October when she was held at gunpoint.
She provided an emotionally charged blow-by-blow account of her scary experience during the new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“He duct tapes my face — I think my mouth — to get me to not yell anything and then he grabs my legs and I had no clothes on under [my robe] so he pulled me towards him at like the front of the bed,” Kim said about one of the masked men posing as cops who tied her up.
“And I thought, ‘OK, this is the moment they’re going to rape me,’ and I fully mentally prepped myself — and then he didn’t,” the 36-year-old tearfully told sisters Khloé and Kourtney on the show.
She continued: “And he duct-taped my legs together and then they had the gun up to me and I just like knew that was the moment they’re just totally going to shoot me in the head.”
Kim said she was lying in her bed in her robe before the men broke into the apartment and tied and gagged her in the bathtub - before making off with nearly $12 million in jewels.
“I was lying in bed like, ‘Should I wash my face?’ I’m so tired. I’m in my robe, I need to get up. I need to wash my face and then 10 minutes later I was like dozing, dozing and then I heard pounding up the stairs and I thought it was you and Stephanie drunk,” she said to Kourtney.
She said: “I’m calling to them like, ‘Hello, hello, hello,’ and there’s no answer and that at that moment when there was no answer my heart started to get really tense like your stomach just kind of knots up and you’re like, ‘OK, what’s going on? What’s going on?’”
“I knew something wasn’t quite right,” she added.
Kim said through the small opening of her door, she saw two men in police uniforms holding down the concierge.
“I slid off my bed and picked up my phone and I’m like, ‘I don’t know how to call 911 in a foreign country,’” she said.
Kim then said she went to call her now-fired bodyguard Pascal Duvier on the phone when “the guy came in and grabbed the phone from me and he threw me on the bed and I was like, ‘This is it!’”
“What I heard from talking to him afterwards was they said, ‘Where’s the rapper’s wife? Let us up to her room,’ in French so he ended up being our interpreter because I couldn’t understand them. They couldn’t understand me.”
When she was tied up, she wildly asked the concierge, “‘Are we going to die? Are they going to kill us?’ I was just like crying, ‘Tell them I have babies.’”
Kim tweeted: “I took a tragic horrific experience and did not let it diminish me, rather grew and evolved and allowed the experience to teach me.”
In her next tweet she said, “I can say I’ve become so much better because of it …. thank you for allowing me to share my story tonight #KUWTK.”
