Shelby Chau / April 27, 2017

American reality TV personality and businesswoman, Kim Kardashian West joined Ellen Degeneres on The Ellen Show and was able to share about her life as a mother, businesswoman, and as a changed person following the traumatic events of her being robbed at gunpoint.


The 36-year-old mother of two began talking about her 1-year old son, Saint, and how the adorable toddler has the exact same personality as herself. Interesting enough, her 3-year-old daughter, North carries the same personality as her father, rapper and producer, Kanye West. Kim contrasted the difference of her two children with Saint being a sweet, gentle, good boy, and North being more blunt, wild, and jealous.



After Kim chatted about planning for her husband’s epic surprise birthday party for his 40th birthday, and her new collaboration line of liquid lip sticks, Ellen asked Kim about the emotional and life changing robbery incident in Paris that happened on October 2, 2016.


Kim was attending a Fashion week in Paris and at 2:30 in the morning, five individuals entered her Paris residence, held her at gunpoint, tied her up and robbed her of $10 million worth of jewelry. She shared with Ellen about the emotions and the feelings she had, and having a gun pointed at her head was a heavy, intense, indescribable feeling.



She went on to share that this traumatic incident was a life changing event, transforming her once materialistic personality who wanted to show off her valuables and assets, to a more careful and cautious individual who values materialism a lot less. Kim talked about her need for more security especially during her travels, and that having so many valuables just didn’t seem worth it, after having her life flash before her eyes.


The event did seem to teach her and transform her, as she shared that she was grateful and thankful that things didn’t escalate further, and that she wasn’t harmed, and she shared she learned a valuable lesson about life, being able to cherish what really matters most.
