*Kim Kardashian said she “mentally prepped” herself to be raped and shot in the head during her armed robbery last October in Paris.
The reality star provided an emotional and detailed account of her experience during Sunday night’s episode of E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
“He duct tapes my face — I think my mouth — to get me to not yell anything and then he grabs my legs and I had no clothes on under [my robe] so he pulled me towards him at like the front of the bed,” Kardashian said about one of the masked men posing as cops who tied her up.
“And I thought, ‘OK, this is the moment they’re going to rape me,’ and I fully mentally prepped myself — and then he didn’t,” she told sisters Khloé and Kourtney on the show.
Kardashian continued: “And he duct-taped my legs together and then they had the gun up to me and I just like knew that was the moment they’re just totally going to shoot me in the head.”
She said she was lying in her bed in her robe before the thugs broke inside the apartment, left her tied and gagged in a bathtub, and made off with nearly $10 million in jewels, including a $4 million diamond ring.
“I was lying in bed like, ‘Should I wash my face?’ I’m so tired. I’m in my robe, I need to get up. I need to wash my face and then 10 minutes later I was like dozing, dozing and then I heard pounding up the stairs and I thought it was you and Stephanie drunk,” Kardashian said to Kourtney.
Addressing the camera on the show, she said: “I’m calling to them like, ‘Hello, hello, hello,’ and there’s no answer and that at that moment when there was no answer my heart started to get really tense like your stomach just kind of knots up and you’re like, ‘Ok what’s going on? What’s going on?’”
“I knew something wasn’t quite right,” she added.
Kardashian — who was in Paris for Fashion Week — said that through the tiny opening of her bedroom door she saw two men in police uniforms holding down the concierge.
“I slid off my bed and picked up my phone and I’m like, ‘I don’t know how to call 911 in a foreign country,’” she said.
Kardashian then said she went to call her now-fired bodyguard Pascal Duvier on the phone when “the guy came in and grabbed the phone from me and he threw me on the bed and I was like, ‘This is it!’”
The concierge was handcuffed with the key to her room, she said.
“What I heard from talking to him afterwards was they said, ‘Where’s the rapper’s wife? Let us up to her room,’ in French so he ended up being our interpreter because I couldn’t understand them. They couldn’t understand me.”
When she was tied up, she asked the concierge, “‘Are we going to die? Are they going to kill us?’ I was just like crying, ‘Tell them I have babies.’”
The men dragged Kardashian into the bathroom before running off with her jewels.

In January, French police charged 10 people in connection with the heist.
Kardashian tweeted Sunday night, “I took a tragic horrific experience and did not let it diminish me, rather grew and evolved and allowed the experience to teach me. I can say I’ve become so much better because of it….thank you for allowing me to share my story tonight #KUWTK.”
