Back in October, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

You may have heard about it.

It sounds like it was a truly terrifying incident, and we know that because of all the police reports, all the court stuff, that time that Kim talked about it on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

But now we really know, because Kim went into detail about what happened during a recent appearance on The Ellen Show.

And to hear it straight from her mouth, with Ellen asking all the important questions ... it's pretty overwhelming.

Oddly enough though, when Ellen starts to get into the topic of the robbery, Kim shares an unexpected viewpoint.

It turns out that she's actually kind of grateful she got robbed?

"I know this sounds crazy," she says, "but I know that was meant to happen to me."

She starts crying and explaining that now, after the robbery, she's "such a different person," and that before, she was "flashy" and "materialistic."

Kim makes it clear that there's nothing wrong with having nice things, but she sweetly adds that "I'm so happy that my kids get this me, and that this is who I'm raising my kids."

She keeps repeating that she doesn't care about material possessions anymore, and unbelievable as it may seem, she sounds sincere.

Ellen then asks her about the night of the robbery, and she goes into the details. A lot of it is stuff we've heard before, but that doesn't make it any easier to hear.

For example, at one point Kim tears up again, telling Ellen that she was "100%" positive that she was going to be murdered.

"I said a prayer," she recounts, "I'm like, 'I know I'm going to heaven,' I hope my kids are OK, my husband ..."

But when she starts to really talk about how terrifying the experience was, she stops herself and says "It could have been way worse."

"I don't want to sound like I'm not grateful, I'm out, I'm home, I'm safe, I'm such a better person ... It's OK."

It sounds like Kim is still struggling with the aftermath of the robbery, and understandably so, but here's hoping that she realizes that it's all right to feel angry or upset, and she doesn't have to blame herself.
