Kim Kardashian has described her recent testimony about the October robbery in Paris, in which she was bound and held at gunpoint, and talked about the trust issues with which she now grapples.
In a pair of video clips promoting this Sunday’s episode of E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the reality-TV star, 36, says that in roughly eight hours of testimony in New York City, she spoke “to a translator, then the translator has to explain it to the judge. Then she writes it with the clerk, then they have to read what you wrote. You have to do it sentence by sentence.”
She found it “really interesting” to see the suspects, presumably on film or video. “Just by their height and weight, I could tell who from this lineup was in the room with me. I was able to see who confessed,” she said. “Of course, there was, like, a few things they’re not saying, to get lesser charges, but they were pretty honest and did tell most of the story exactly, like, how it happened.” She learned, she says, “about how they had been following me and how they attempted to rob me the last time I was in Paris, but my husband [rapper Kanye West] was with me.”
Saying, “I honestly never thought that they would catch the robbers,” Kardashian lauded “how diligent the French police were being. . . . They got the fingerprints of two guys inside and then I think they tapped their phones and went from there.” Although the robbers wore gloves, “they left the duct tape [used to cover her mouth], and that already had fingerprints from when they were at home putting it in the bag.”
Despite her relief over the police investigation and the prosecution, however, “Knowing that it’s a possibility that people close to me were involved makes me feel I can’t trust anyone. . . . It just opened up my eyes that this happens and that there’s, y’know, really bad people in this world. I can still live my life, but just on edge.”
