Ter­ri­fied Kim: ‘There’s No Way Out!’

For the first time ever, Kim opens up about be­ing held at gun­point

Look (UK) - - LOOK NEWS -

There’s no doubt that Kim Kar­dashian West has had an in­tense 12 months. Since the last se­ries of KUWTK aired last May, Kim has dealt with a stream of trau­matic in­ci­dents – the main one be­ing bound, gagged and held at gun­point in a Paris ho­tel room last Oc­to­ber.

But with Kim be­gin­ning to get back to her old self (af­ter the 36-yearold’s three-month so­cial me­dia hia­tus fol­low­ing the Paris rob­bery) she’s now been forced to re­live the trau­matic in­ci­dent, af­ter the new se­ries of KUWTK aired last night, ex­clu­sively on re­al­ity stream­ing ser­vice Hayu and this week­end on E! We’re told the star’s found it tough to be back on screen af­ter the in­ci­dent. ‘For Kim, it’s opened up old wounds,’ a close pal tells Look. ‘She’s been do­ing re­ally well since the in­ci­dent, keep­ing her­self busy, fo­cus­ing on her fam­ily and be­ing care­ful about what she posts on so­cial me­dia. But with the first episode air­ing this week, it’s dragged up a lot of emo­tions for Kim.’

We were able to have an early look and, for the first time ever, Kim speaks out about what re­ally hap­pened dur­ing the rob­bery, ad­mit­ting: ‘I feared for my life,’ and telling her sis­ters: ‘[The rob­bers were] go­ing to shoot me in the back. [There was] no way out.’

Fan of Kim or not, it’s pretty un­com­fort­able view­ing. Not only does she ap­pear com­pletely trau­ma­tised, she’s also to­tally vul­ner­a­ble – some­thing we’re not used to see­ing . ‘She was wor­ried about the show com­ing out and what peo­ple might think,’ adds our source. ‘But the scenes that were shown re­lay the true im­pact of the rob­bery and she wanted peo­ple to see that.’

‘Kim’s hop­ing that by shar­ing it, they’ll un­der­stand her change of im­age and why she had to take a break from so­cial me­dia.’ Hmm… that and the fact the Kar­dashi­ans do every­thing on cam­era, eh?
