Kim Kardashian West begged Paris robbers: 'Let me live'

Kim Kardashian West has revealed she begged with her Paris robbers to spare her life.

Kardashian was robbed of around €10m (£7m) worth of jewellery when a gang of masked men burst into her luxury apartment during Paris Fashion Week.

The robbers, wearing ski masks and dressed as police, broke into the building, near the historic Madeleine Church in the 8th arrondissement, at around 3am on 3 October.

They held a gun to her head before tying her up and locking her in the bathroom.

In a preview of the new series of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the 36-year-old describes the moment she was attacked, saying through tears that she pleaded "let me live" to the gang.

"They had the gun up to me and I knew they were just going to shoot me in the head," she said.

"Then he duct-tapes my face.

"Please I have a family. Let me live."

In another preview, Kardashian West said the robbers demanded money but she told them: "I don't have any money."

"They dragged me out on to the hallway on top of the stairs," she went on.

"That's when I saw the gun, like clear as day.

"I was kind of looking at the gun, looking down back at the stairs."

Kardashian West is also shown telling her sisters Khloe and Kourtney that she had a "split second" to decide whether to try to escape.

"Am I going to run down the stairs and either be shot in the back? It makes me so upset to think about it," she said.

"Either they're going to shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don't, if the elevator does not open in time, or the stairs are locked, then like I'm f*****.

"There's no way out."

At the time, French police said she had made herself a target by flaunting her lavish lifestyle on social media.

Days before the raid, Kardashian West posted a photograph of a huge diamond ring on her left hand captioned with three diamond emojis.

The moment the reality TV star learned that her rapper husband, Kanye West, had been admitted to hospital with exhaustion, also features in the upcoming show.

West, 39, was taken to the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at the University of California in November and the remaining dates on his world tour were abruptly cancelled.

Season 13 of Keeping Up With The Kardashian begins in the UK on E! on 19 March.
