Kim Kardashian broke down in tears talking about her robbery on Ellen yesterday

She said that the experience has made her less ‘flashy’ and ‘materialistic’.

YESTERDAY, KIM KARDASHIAN appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her traumatic robbery in Paris last October.

The reality star, who was robbed at gunpoint and had $10 million worth of jewellery stolen, broke down as she recalled the incident.

“I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happy to me,” she said. “I don’t want to start crying, but I feel like that was so meant to happen to me. I am such a different person.”

Kardashian stated that she believed she had learned important lessons from the incident.

It was probably no secret, you see it on the show, us being flashy. I was definitely materialistic before. Not that there’s anything bad with having things and working hard to get those things. I’m really proud of everyone around me that’s successful, but I’m so happy my kids get this me and this is who I am raising my kids. Because I just don’t care about that stuff anymore.

“I don’t care about that stuff,” she reiterated. “I don’t care to show off the way that I used to. It’s okay if you’re proud of that and you work so hard and you get something. It’s just now who I am anymore.”

She also recounted the night of the robbery and described how her life has changed in the aftermath.

She told DeGeneres that those behind the robbery held a gun up to the concierge of the hotel and demanded to see “the rapper’s wife”. Ellen’s response?

How dare they not know your name.

Kardashian expressed reluctance at the thought of wearing expensive jewellery in public again.

I truly don’t know if I’d ever feel comfortable. I don’t know if I’d ever wear real jewellery again.

She also explained how she has significantly upped her security “just for me to be able to sleep at night”.

Just…my whole life as changed as far as how I travel and security. I never thought that I needed security staying outside my door, even though I had a lot of jewelry. If you think about it, yeah, I should have had a security guard outside my door 24/7 when I’m traveling and I didn’t. Now, I have several, just for me to be able to sleep at night.

All in all, she just wants to move on and put it behind her.

It could have been way worse, so I don’t want to sound like I’m not grateful. I’m out, I’m home, I’m safe, I’m such a better person – it’s okay. Let’s move on.
