Details of Kim Kardashian's Paris robbery are scarier than we all thought
Love her or hate her, you can't deny that Kim Kardashian went through a serious rough patch last year. Her Paris robbery and Kanye West's mental breakdown was enough to put anyone out of commission. In fact, the more details that emerge from Kim's horrific Paris robbery, the more I understand why she's been so low-key since. On Sunday, the French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche published what they claim to be a transcript of Kim's verbal statement to French police about the incident and it's pretty devastating.

According to NBC News, which confirmed that the police report that was published is accurate, Kim was wearing nothing but a bathrobe when the robbery took place. Apparently her sister Kourtney Kardashian and her assistant changed clothes and left. But Kim stayed in, got on her computer and worked, and then heard noises at the door. She had asked who was there but no one answered and decided to call her bodyguard a little before 3 a.m.
Things got scary when Kim noticed two people through the sliding door, including "a man of the reception who was strapped [or tied up]." The two men were wearing hooded jackets that read "Police" and one of them was wearing a ski mask. The man with the ski mask had spoken to Kim in French, took her Blackberry, and asked where her $4 million ring was. She originally said she didn't know but once he pointed a weapon at her, she pointed at the ring which was lying on a bedside table. But wait, it gets worse.
Kim told police that the robbers also pushed her onto a bed and completely emptied her purse. Apparently her purse had been lying next to a jewelry box that contained two diamond Cartier bracelets, a Lorraine Schwartz diamond necklace, diamond earrings, gold Jacob necklaces, a gold Rolex watch, a diamond necklace that read "Saint" and other pieces of jewelry. They then tied Kim up with plastic cables and taped her mouth shut and also used tape to bind her legs. Afterwards, they carried her into the bathroom and put her in the tub. I can't even imagine how scared she must have been at this point.
After the robbers ran out, Kim somehow managed to remove the tape and was able to run to her friend's room where she called Kourtney. She filed a complaint and said she wanted to leave as soon as possible to return to her children.
It's no wonder she's been out of the spotlight for so long. The girl has been through a lot and whether what she does makes sense to us or not, you have to admit she's in pretty good shape considering what went down. I can't say I'd be the same had this happened to me.
