REALITY TV STAR Kim Kardashian has spoken for the first time about her ordeal at gunpoint during Paris Fashion Week late last year.

On the first episode of the new season of her family’s reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which premiered on US screens last night, Kardashian described to her family the moments surrounding the robbery.

The reality star, wife of rapper Kanye West, had millions of dollars worth of jewellery taken from her hotel room during the raid.

“They asked me for money, and I said I don’t have any money, and then they dragged me out to the hallway on top of the stairs,” she told sisters Khloe and Kourtney.

He duct-taped my face, and that’s when I saw the gun, clear as day, and that’s when I said: ‘I’ve a family, please let me live’.

The robbery, which happened on 3 October last, saw Kardashian bound and gagged at gunpoint, before being locked in the bathroom of her hotel.

Six men were arrested in connection with the robbery in January, although none of the stolen jewellery has yet been recovered.

“They had the gun up to me and I knew they were just going to shoot me in the head,” she said.

I was kind of looking at the gun, looking back down the stairs, I was, like, I have a split second in my mind to make this quick decision.
Am I gonna run down the stairs and either be shot in the back, it makes me so upset to even think about it, like they’re going to shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don’t, then if the elevator doesn’t open in time, or the stairs are locked, then I’m f***ed.

“There’s no way out.”

Following the robbery, Kardashian took a three-month long timeout from Twitter and made no public appearances.

The five alleged assailants (who range in age from 54 to 72) and the alleged ringleader of the heist, have been described as “old-school gangsters” by French police sources.
