Kim Kardashian returned this week to Paris for the first time since her 2016 robbery at gunpoint.
The reality star talked openly about facing her trauma in a post to her app on Friday, one day after visiting the unofficial fashion capitol of the world.
Kim made the trip to Paris Thursday with Kanye West to support his best friend Virgil Abloh in his debut collection for Louis Vuitton at the label's spring/summer 2019 menswear show at Paris Fashion Week.
It has been nearly two years since Kim was last in the city. In October 2016, she was held at gunpoint and bound and gagged by five burglars. The thieves stole two cellphones and approximately $10 million worth of jewelry, including a $4 million dollar ring.
"I went back to Paris to witness Kanye's BFF, Virgil Abloh, make history with his first collection and runway show for Louis Vuitton during Mens Fashion Week," she wrote on her website. "It was such an emotional trip!"
"For me, it was the perfect time to come back to a place where I fell in love, but also a place where I suffered great trauma," she continued. "The trip was actually only 12 hours because right after the show, we had to fly home for Teyana Taylor's listening party the same night!"
"Emotionally, I feel calm. I've truly put the experience behind me, and have learned and grown from it. Because of this, mentally coming back to Paris wasn't difficult for me. It feels refreshing to face my fears and overcome them. For me, there's no point in staying in a fucked-up state of mind. 'Feel it, go through it and move on' has always been how I try to live my life. I would never suggest to anyone how to grieve, I can simply say what has worked for me."
"I'm so happy I went back," Kim said. "It was the perfect experience coming back to a city I love so much."
At Abloh's runway show, Kim and Kanye were also joined by Kylie Jenner and Stormy's dad Travis Scott. Kanye and Abloh have been close friends for a long time, which was shown when the rapper broke down in proud tears, as he hugged Abloh after his show.
