It cannot be denied that Kim Kardashian-West, 38, is among the most financially successful members of the famous Kardashian-Jenner clan. Forbes reported that the wife of American rapper Kanye West, 42, earned a total of $72 million in the first half of the year. With the success of her family’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” show, millions of Instagram followers and makeup line KKW Beauty by Kim Kardashian West, it comes as no surprise that she is being considered as one of the wealthiest stars of her generation.

However, being a celebrity that earns big paychecks have its downsides and that includes serious risk to safety and privacy. As a matter of fact, Kim was robbed at gunpoint and nearly killed by a group of criminals in Paris three years ago. Reports have it that the half-sister of Kylie Jenner was gagged after flashing a massive diamond ring during the 2018 Paris Fashion Week.

Though Kim Kardashian has managed to move on with her life and continue working on her empire, she can still recall all the events that occurred during that horrific robbery. The mom of four, alongside elder sister Kourtney Kardashian, even detailed the dreadful night to “E! True Hollywood Story.”

“Right as I was about to fall asleep I heard guys running up the stairs,” Kim said in the clip. “They wanted my ring and my jewelry so I didn’t fight back I just gave them everything and they tied me up. They wrapped duct tape over my eyes and my mouth,” she went on. revealed that Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian took Kim Kardashian’s security guard at the time of mugging. The wife of Kanye West divulged that she was sure she going to be dead that night and all she could do was stay calm and pray. Months after the incident, Kim had dealt with anxiety and sleeping issues before deciding to change her lifestyle.

Meanwhile, other reports claimed that Kendall does not want to appear with Kim in public again after she was humiliated by her elder sister at 2019 Emmy Awards in September. The Kardashian-Jenner sisters were tapped to present an award and, reportedly, got unwanted laughers after Kim told the audience that their family knows “how compelling television comes from real people, just being themselves.”

This, according to National Enquirer, embarrassed Kendall to the core that she is planning to distance herself from her sisters – Kim, Kourtney, Kylie and Khloe Kardashian, 35. Both Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian have yet to comment on this rumor.
