The star visits the French capital for the first time since her terrifying gunpoint robbery.
Kim Kardashian vowed not to return to Paris for ten years after she was robbed at gunpoint there back in October 2016.
But last week the brave star visited the French capital for the first time since her terrifying ordeal, along with husband Kanye West, sister Kylie Jenner and her boyfriend Travis Scott, to attend the Louis Vuitton menswear show at Paris Fashion Week. The family was surrounded by security during their high-profile return, with Kim going jewelleryfree at the event. On Friday, in a heartfelt blog about the trip, she explained she deliberately toned down her bling, telling fans, “I also have no jewelry anymore, so there’s nothing for anyone to take.”
Following her 12-hour visit to France, the mum of three confessed she found the trip moving, tweeting, “Thank you Paris for the emotional trip back! I couldn’t have come for a better reason….off to Teyana’s listening party in LA now! 2 major experiences in 2 countries all in the same day!”
The reality star, 37, also posted a snap of the Eiffel Tower and filmed herself being mobbed by a large group of photographers, jokingly captioning it, “Casual stroll.”
Despite her relaxed approach, there’s no doubt it was a tough trip for Kim to make.
Following her ordeal in 2016 which saw her gagged, bound and fearing for her life Kim has spoken about the lasting effect it had on her and last Friday referred to the “great trauma” she experienced.
During an episode of KUWTK last year she was seen breaking down on the phone to a friend, sobbing, “I just have anxiety.”
She later added, “Ever since Paris, I just go through this worst case scenario mode in my head.”
The return to France wouldn’t have been easy for Kanye either. Just last month he opened up about how the horrific robbery had impacted on him.
He said, “The situation with my wife in Paris, and all of the elements you’re feeling, like, helpless. You’re feeling, like, what else can you do?
“I went to Paris on that trip to protect her. Not protect her physically, but to go and just help her with her looks because she’s in Paris.
“One of the things that she said she heard was that they were coming to rob her and they had to wait until I had left. “The people had been strategising and scheming on that for a long time.”
Now they’ve made that first difficult trip back, we’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of Kim and Kanye in the stylish capital!
