We understand how easy it would be to let a situation like Kim Kardashian's Parisian gunpoint robbery impact you negatively for the rest of your life. However, instead of taking what could be the easier route, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians Star has said to Ellen DeGeneres that she feels like the robbery was meant to happen to her, and that she’s somewhat thankful that it did.
"I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me. I don't want to start crying, but I feel like that was so meant to happen to me," Kim states, "I'm such a different person. I, um...I don't want to start crying anymore. It was meant to happen to me. I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things. It was probably no secret, and you see it on the show—I was being flashy and I was definitely materialistic before... I'm so happy that my kids get this me and that this is who I'm raising my kids (as). 'Cause I just don't care about that stuff anymore. I really don't."
Kim continues to state that there’s nothing wrong with being proud and flaunting your success and what you’ve worked for, but she’ll never do it again.
“...Everyone gets so excited when they get things. Or, of course when you get engaged, you're going to show off your ring. If you get a new car—I don't care what kind it is—you get so proud and you get so happy and you show that off on social media. But it's just...it's not worth it. Like, I don't care about that stuff," states Kim.
Getting candid about the robbery, Kim recounted the events of the night, stating that she’d decided to stay home and pack rather than going out with her sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner and friends. What’s shocking is that rather than the 2.30 am robbery being a random attack, it had been in the works for at least 2 years.
“What was crazy is meeting with my attorneys and knowing the information that I know now, they had been following me for two years. They had been hearing interviews that I did, getting excited about this jewellery or this jewellery, and saying that it's real,” Kim revealed.
"It's not to say that I'll never wear jewellery again or anything like that, (but) I truly don't know if I'd ever feel comfortable. I don't know if I'd ever wear real jewellery again," states Kim.
Watching the interview, you can’t help but get chills. It’s obvious the impact that the horrendous situation has had on the reality star, yet we can’t help but feel proud and inspired of how Kim has grown from the unfortunate events.
