The 35-year-old reality star went through a horrific ordeal on Monday (03.10.16) when five thieves dressed as policemen robbed her at gunpoint in her room in the French capital, during which they zip tied her hands with plastic handcuffs, duct taped her, and stole more than $10 million worth of jewels.

Sources told TMZ Kim was just wearing a robe when they barged into her room, and she told police when one of the men then grabbed her ankles she feared she was going to be sexually assaulted.

She saw guys approaching her room through a sliding glass door and tried to call her bodyguard but the men snatched her phone out of her hands before she could ring him.

Kim - who has daughter North, three, and son Saint, nine months, with husband Kanye West - begged the robbers not to kill her because she has kids.

After they tied her up she was put in the bath where she began screaming, crying, and begging for her life so they duct taped her mouth shut.

The ordeal lasted around six minutes and the masked robbers took a jewellery box worth around $6.7 million and a 20-carat diamond ring she was given by Kanye worth $4.5 million as well as two phones.

She told police the robbers only spoke French but she understood they were asking for her "ring" and she told them where it was in the apartment.

Kim's friend Simone Harouche was sleeping downstairs in the two-storey abode and locked herself in the bathroom when she heard the commotion and rang Kim's personal bodyguard Pascal Duvier, who was at the Arc nightclub less than two miles away.

But he arrived two minutes after the men had fled.

Kim was said to be "hysterical" when she rang Kanye afterwards to tell him what had happened but she has since returned to New York in a private jet.

Upon her arrival, she was reunited with her husband, mother Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble.

When Kim arrived back at her home with her family they were accompanied by 10 vehicles, 15 bodyguards and a group of local police officers.

The raven-haired beauty had been in the French capital with sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, who were with Pascal at the club when the incident occurred, to celebrate Paris Fashion Week.

Her spokesperson said she was "badly shaken" but "physically unharmed" following the ordeal.
