Kim Kardashian breaks down during first TV interview since Paris robbery
Kim Kardashian has given her first interview since the horrific Paris robbery, admitting: “I know that was meant to happen to me”.
Appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Thursday, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star became emotional when recounting her traumatic ordeal in Paris.
During October of last year, Kim was brutally held at gunpoint in a luxury apartment in Paris and robbed of jewellery worth millions of dollars.
“I know it sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me,” she said.
“I don’t want to start crying but I know it was meant to happen. I feel like I’m such a different person.”
The star continued to describe how the incident has made her a less materialistic person: “I don’t want to cry anymore. I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things.
“It was probably no secret, you see it on the show. I was definitely materialistic before, not that there’s anything bad with having things and working hard to get those things.
“I’m really proud of everyone around me that’s successful. But I’m so happy that my kids get this me, that this is who I am raising my kids. I just don’t care about that stuff anymore. I really don’t.”
Kim also admitted that she has since increased her personal security. She said: “Meeting with my attorneys and knowing the information that I know now, [the robbers] had been following me for two years.
“They had heard interviews that I did, getting excited about this jewellery and that jewellery. I truly don’t know if I’d ever feel comfortable wearing jewellery anymore, or wearing real jewellery again.
“My whole life has changed in terms of how I travel and my security. I never thought I would need security staying outside of my door. I should have had a security guard outside of my door. Now I have several just for me to be able to sleep at night.”
