Kim Kardashian: In Hysterics After Robbery, Back in U.S.

by at .

Kim Kardashian is safe and sound and back in the United States.

The reality star is recovering from a truly horrific ordeal that has the Internet abuzz and her family very concerned.

That's what happens when you get held up at gunpoint, bound inside of a bathroom and fall victim to a multi-million dollar robbery.

Kimye Again

This really is what took place very early on Monday morning, as French officials have confirmed that five armed assailants broke into Kardashian's Paris apartment around 2:30 a.m.

Two of them proceeded to tie Kim up and lock her inside the residence's bathroom, as she begged and pleaded for her life.

According to an E! News insider, Kardashian was gagged and bound at her hands and feet; she was then handcuffed and held at gunpoint.

"She begged for them to let her live and [said] she has babies at home," this source tells E! of the incident, adding:

"Then they wrapped her mouth in tape and put her in the bathtub."

Scared and alone, Kardashian feared the worst outcome. How could she not, right?

"She thought they were for sure going to kill her," the source says.

One of Kardashian's rings, worth an estimated $4.49 million, as well as a jewelry box, worth an estimated $5.6 million, were stolen.

Overall, the thieves got away (on bikes, outlets have claimed) with over $10 million worth of swiped goods.

Once she broke free from her restraints, Kim called the authorities.

She gave her statement... Kendall Jenner arrived around 4:30 a.m. after a night out... and then Kim boarded a private plane as soon as she could in order to get home.

As previously reported, Kanye West ended his show in Queens as soon as he heard what happened to his wife and then met Kardashian at the airport.

TMZ has photos of Kanye and Kim in New York City, surrounded by well over 10 bodyguards and nearly just as many vehicles.

This is a video of West ending his concert prior to its scheduled conclusion, telling fans in attendance about a "family emergency."

"Kim was terrified," a source close to West tells People of her initial call to her husband.

"She was just hysterical when she talked to Kanye. He said she was really upset and it took him a few seconds to understand what she was saying to him.

"He wanted to get to her as soon as he could. He told her that he couldn't care less about the jewelry; he's just thankful that she's okay."

We feel the same way, as everyone should.

No matter what you think about Kim Kardashian as a business person or Instagram account holder or former sex tape star, she's also a wife. And a mother. And a daughter.

She did not deserve to go through this ordeal.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo condemned the attack on Kardashian via Twitter, saying she's always welcome in Paris.

"This very rare act occurred in a private space and does not in any way call into question the work of the police and the security of the public space," she said.

E! News has also reached out to Kim's famous mom, Kris Jenner, who said her daughter "will be OK."

Finally, E! released a statement of its own this morning, in light of its relationship with Kardashian. It reads:

"All of us at E! are incredibly thankful that Kim Kardashian West is safe, and we send her and her family our love and support. Keeping Up with the Kardashians was not filming at the time of the robbery. Our focus right now is entirely on Kim's well-being."

As it should be.
