It’s been nearly six months since Kim Kardashian West was the victim of a terrifying robbery in Paris, but the memories continue to haunt the reality star.
While alone in her No Address Hotel room on Oct. 3, Kardashian West was bound, gagged and held at gunpoint while five masked men invaded her apartment and robbed her of millions of dollars worth of jewels during Paris Fashion Week.
