Kim Kardashian West thinks the Paris robbers targeted her because they could track her whereabouts on social media.
The 36-year-old beauty suffered a horrific ordeal when masked raiders tied her up in her bathroom and stole her jewellery from her apartment during Paris Fashion Week last October, and on reflection she feels they saw her as an easy target because she shared her entire trip to the French capital on Snapchat and Instagram and from her posts they could see she was alone.
In a new clip teasing the next episode of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’, the brunette beauty said: “What I think happened now, after like thinking about it so much, is that there was probably a group of guys that were following us the entire trip. I was Snapchatting that I was home and that everyone was going out. So I think they knew [bodyguard Pascal Duvier] was out with Kourtney and that I was there by myself. They had to have known we were leaving that I was there by myself. They had to have known we were leaving that day. They had this window of opportunity and just went for it.”
It comes after the reality star – who has children North, three, and Saint, 15 months, with husband Kanye West – said she feared she would be “shot in the back” if she tried to escape the robbers. In a previous preview clip for the E! show, Kim told her sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian: “They ask for money. I said ‘I don’t have any money.’
“They dragged me out to the hallway, on top of the stairs. That’s when I saw the gun like, clear as day. I was kind of looking at the gun, looking down back at the stairs… I had a split second in my mind to make this quick decision. Am I gonna run down the stairs… Either they’re gonna shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don’t, if the elevator does not open in time, or the stairs are locked, then like, I’m f***ed. There’s no way out.”
The new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is due on screens on the 19th March.
