Kim Kardashian West broke down in tears when she was in Mexico celebrating her sister Kourtney’s birthday, because she was afraid of being a victim of armed robbers again.
The reality TV star was bound and held at gunpoint during a terrifying ordeal in Paris in October 2016, and admitted it has left her fearing the worst whenever she goes abroad.
In a new preview for this weekend’s episode of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’, Kim sobs as she speaks on the phone to the owner of the villa in Mexico where the family were staying, and said: “Ever since Paris I just like go through this worst case scenario mode in my head. I was so excited to come on this trip and I had no idea that I was gonna end up feeling this way.
“But it hit me right as we were getting off the plane that all of these people at the airport are gonna see 17 or 18 girls all with our Chanel bags, you know Louis Vuitton this and it just like hit me. We’re the biggest target ever.”
Kim has admitted the incident in the French capital changed her outlook on life, as she previously confessed: “I definitely get a lot more anxiety now, just people knowing your every move.”
The French police subsequently found that the robbers planned their heist using Kim’s updates on Snapchat and Instagram.
The revelation has made her become more cautious with her posts on social media.
Kim told T Singapore magazine: “When you realise you can put a message out there and there’s so many people listening, you look at life differently.”
The reality TV star has two children, a daughter North, four, and son Saint, two, with her rapper husband Kanye West, and Kim recently said that the incident in Paris has made her realise her whole world revolves around her family and her children now.
She also described the ordeal earlier this year on her show, she said: “They had the gun up to me and I knew they were just going to shoot me in the head. Then he duck-tapes my face.”
She also relived the moment she begged for her life, pleading to her captors: “Please I have a family. Let me live”.
