Kim Kardashian West returns to Paris for first time since 2016 attack
Kim Kardashian West has returned to Paris for the first time since her robbery in the city.
PARIS – Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West has returned to Paris for the first time since she was tied up and robbed at gunpoint in her hotel room in the French capital city.
The 37-year-old reality star was the victim of a horrific ordeal in October 2016 when she was tied up and robbed at gunpoint when a gang of thieves burst into her hotel room and stole millions of dollars worth of jewellery.
However, on Thursday she made the brave decision to head back to the French capital as she watched Virgil Abloh's Louis Vuitton debut at fashion brand's Men's Show in Paris.
She tweeted: "Thank you Paris for the emotional trip back! 🇫🇷 I couldn't have come for a better reason....off to Teyana's listening party in LA now! 2 major experiences in 2 countries all in the same day! (sic)"
Despite the return to the city no doubt being an emotional one for Kim, she took the time to tweet her congratulations to Abloh, who was named Louis Vuitton's artistic director earlier this year.
She added: "Congrats @virgilabloh on your history making @LouisVuitton Men's Show!"
Her appearance in Paris comes after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star insisted she has become a "better person" since the robbery.
She explained to Business of Fashion magazine: "It was supposed to happen to me. I was supposed to learn a lot from that. [Those] little signs along the way, you really do have to pay attention.
"And for me that made me a better person morally and just for the things that are important to me; how I'm going to raise my kids or just what I care to show.
"I'm really cautious of all of that now. I don't really post in real time anymore. I just don't like people knowing my every move."
