REALITY television star Kim Kardashian has finally given a first-hand account of being robbed at gunpoint in Paris last year, an experience she said has helped her grow and become a better person.

Kardashian, 36, told her family and the world in her own words on Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians about how she feared being raped and killed in the October 2016 robbery when thieves tied her up in a luxury hotel apartment and stole some $10 million worth of jewellery.

“I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my own words could be twisted,” the reality star told her 95 million Instagram followers.

“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,” she added, without elaborating.

Since pulling back from the public, she has made a gradual comeback, appearing at some public events and even filming a small cameo for the upcoming female caper movie Ocean’s Eight.
