Two men break into her room

Kim revealed she was on her own when two men dressed as police officers broke into her room.

"They brought in the concierge from downstairs handcuffed, with a gun up to him," she explained.

"So they were yelling at me in French."

Kim recalled, "They kept on saying, 'The ring! The ring!"

However, in her state of pure panic she couldn't understand what it was they wanted.

"I was just so startled, I was like, 'What?' Like it didn't compute to me for a minute."

Once she gathered her thoughts, she reached for the ring by her bedside, and handed it to the man.

Kim broke down in tears as she recalled how he pulled her close to him.

Letterman asked if she was alright, and she replied, "I don't wanna ruin my makeup," drawing laughter from the audience.

Kim prepares for the worst

Kim continued, "He grabbed me and pulled me towards him but I wasn't wearing anything underneath."

"So I was like, 'OK, this is the time I'm going to get raped. Just deal, it's gonna happen. Just prepare yourself.'"

"So I did... But then he tied me up with handcuffs and zip ties and duct tape."

In the audience, Kim's mother Kris was wiping away tears from her eyes.

The reality star said the thief duct taped her mouth and eyes shut.

But before he taped over her eyes, she saw him point a gun at her.

"And I just kept on thinking about Kourtney," Kim said of her older sister who was in Paris with her at the time.

"I kept on thinking, 'She's gonna come home and I'm going to be dead in the room."

"She's gonna be traumatised for the rest of her life if she sees me."

"We're sharing her room. Like on her bed. But I thought that was my fate."

Kim said one of the thieves kept whispering to her, "You're okay, you're okay."
