The mum-of-two opens up in her first TV interview since her Paris robbery ordeal...
Kim Kardashian has made her first chat show appearance since being targeted by armed robbers in Paris last year.
The 36-year-old filmed an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, which saw her breaking down as she opened up about the horrific experience.
As Ellen handed her a tissue, she said: ‘I know it sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me. I don’t want to start crying but I know it was meant to happen. I feel like I’m such a different person.
‘I don’t want to cry anymore. I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things.
‘I was definitely materialistic before, not that there’s anything bad with having things and working hard to get those things. I’m really proud of everyone around me that’s successful. But I’m so happy that my kids get this me, that this is who I am raising my kids. I just don’t care about that stuff anymore. I really don’t.
‘Of course when you get engaged you’re going to show off your ring, if you get a car – no matter what it is – you feel really proud and you might show it off on social media.
‘I’m not here to show off the way that I used to. It’s just not who I am anymore.’
Kim – who has children North, three, and one-year-old Saint with husband Kanye West – went on to explain why she’d chosen not to wear jewellery on the programme.
She said: ‘Meeting with my attorneys and knowing the information that I know now, [the robbers] had been following me for two years.
‘They had heard interviews that I did, getting excited about this jewellery and that jewellery. I truly don’t know if I’d ever feel comfortable wearing jewellery anymore, or wearing real jewellery again.

‘I should have had a security guard outside of my door. Now I have several just for me to be able to sleep at night.’
