KIM Kardashian has said she thought she was going to be raped and killed when she was robbed at gunpoint in a Paris apartment.
The tearful reality star, married to troubled rapper Kanye West, recounted her horrific ordeal on Keeping Up with the Kardashians last night.
The reality star was tied up and threatened at gunpoint after armed men broke into her Paris apartment last year and stole millions of pounds worth of jewellery.
The heist was France's biggest jewellery theft involving in a private citizen in more than two decades.
There were 17 arrests in connection with the armed robbery and 10 have been charged so far.
The thugs, dressed as Paris police officers, stole $10million worth of jewels and her 20 carat engagement ring.
The model had remained tight-lipped about the events that took place in October last year until last night's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Speaking with her sisters Kourtney, 37, and Khloe, 32, Kim has told how her mouth was sealed with duct tape to stop her screaming.

CORRIE KENUNDRUMCorrie fans left in shock as soap legend Ken Barlow left for dead after being pushed down the stairs sparking explosive Whodunnit plot
Kim, a mother-of-two, revealed the moment she was attacked by one of the robbers last night, and said: "'He grabs my legs, and I wasn't, you know, I had no clothes on under.
"He pulled me toward him at the front of the bed and I thought.
"Okay, this is the moment they're going to rape me.
She added: "I fully mentally prepped myself - and then he didn't. He duct taped my legs together and had the gun up to me.
"I knew that was the moment they're just totally going to shoot me in the head.
"I just prayed that Kourtney's going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed...like, I'm not going to make it out of here. I know how these things go."
Kim also revealed how the hotel's concierge had been forced to bring the thugs up to her room, and that she pleaded with them to tell the robbers she had babies and a family.
She said: "I just said 'Are we going to die?' They can't understand me, but please tell them I have babies, I have a family, let me live."
After she had pointed the thieves to her $4million ring they demanded money.
Kim said she told them: "I said I don't have money.
"They dragged me out to the hallway on top of the stairs. That's when I saw the gun clear as day.
"I was looking at the gun, looking at the stairs...either they’re going to shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don’t, if the elevator doesn’t make it in time or the stairs are locked then I’m like f***ed.
"There’s no way out."
The robbers later pushed Kim into the bathroom before making off on "velibs" - bicycles that can be rented all over Paris.
Kim said that when the robbers left she hid in a bush on the balcony.
She revealed: "'It was really hard for me when the police showed up because they were dressed in the same uniform, except for the face masks.'
She also revealed her theory for how the horrific robbery and attack was orchestrated.
She said: "What I think happened now, after thinking about it so much, is that there was probably a group of guys that were following us the entire trip.
"I was Snapchatting that I was home and everyone was going out, so I think they knew Pascal [Duvier] was out with Kourtney and that I was there by myself...They had this window of opportunity and just went for it."
Kim's mother Kris broke down in tears as she told how "it's the most devastating thing to have one of your children fear for their life".
Earlier this month it was reported that Kim's sister Kendall Jenner had $163,000 worth of jewellery stolen from her home in Hollywood.
