Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West said on Thursday that a terrifying robbery at a hotel in Paris, France, last October rocked her to her core and transformed her life.
She also revealed the final prayer she said when the armed men bust into her hotel room and she thought she was going to die.
“I said a prayer — I’m like, ‘I know I’m going to heaven. I hope my kids are okay, my husband,'” West told comedian Ellen DeGeneres, welling up with tears as she recounted the robbery that has forever changed her.
And the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star dove even deeper, explaining how the robbery changed her very character — and why she believes the traumatizing event was meant to happen to her.
“I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me. I don’t want to start crying, but I know that was so meant to happen to me,” West said through tears. “I’m such a different person. … it was meant to happen to me.”
She added, “I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things.”
West went on to say that she was “definitely materialistic before,” but that she no longer has that same inclination and is elated that her children are being raised with her newfound perspective.
“I’m so happy that my kids get this me,” she said. “I just don’t care about that stuff anymore. … I don’t care to show off the way that I used to.”
West said that the robbery changed the way she travels as well, as she takes extra precautions and is unsure if she’ll ever wear “real” jewelry again. She also now travels with security guards stationed outside of her hotel room to give her peace of mind.
