Kim Kardashian is opening up about her first trip to Paris since the 2016 robbery that changed her life.
“It was the perfect time to come back to a place where I fell in love, but also a place where I suffered great trauma,” Kim wrote in a blog post for her site. She was in town with hubby Kanye West for the Louis Vuitton runway show.
She continued, “After the robbery, I completely changed how I travel—from extra security around me 24/7 to switching hotels. I’ve made all the necessary changes and precautions. I had Kanye by my side, which made me feel safe. I also have no jewelry anymore, so there’s nothing for anyone to take.”
Kim said she believes she has “truly put the experience behind me, and have learned and grown from it.”
“Because of this, mentally coming back to Paris wasn’t difficult for me,” she added. “It feels refreshing to face my fears and overcome them. For me, there’s no point in staying in a f**ked-up state of mind. ‘Feel it, go through it and move on’ has always been how I try to live my life. I would never suggest to anyone how to grieve, I can simply say what has worked for me.”
She concluded by saying, “I’m so happy I went back—and I got some really yummy food, lol! It was the perfect experience coming back to a city I love so much.”
Back in October 2016, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint by five burglars who took off with approximately $10 million worth of jewelry.
