Two masked men dressed as police officers robbed Kardashian at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room. They stole a cell phone, cash and jewelry worth an estimated $10 million. The reality star was physically unharmed in the incident.

The two men gained access to the reality star's hotel room after they forced a concierge alongside three others to open the door.

Kardashian took time off from the spotlight after the incident and returned to social media shortly after the new year started with a family photo featuring husband Kanye West and their children, 3-year-old daughter North and 1-year-old son Saint.

The mother of two is set to discuss the robbery in an upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. In a new promo of the show released by E!, she is seen recalling the events to her family.
