Kim Kardashian has opened up about experiencing agoraphobia during the pandemic.
In a bonus clip of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the Skims founder told sister, Khloe about how the quarantine brought about agoraphobia stemming from her terrifying 2016 Paris robbery.
“We had just gone to Paris. We had just started traveling, and then quarantine happened. Now I’m, like, such a freak all over again and never want to, like, leave [home].”
Kim recalled feeling that way in the immediate aftermath of her robbery.
“I feel like I had agoraphobia, definitely, after my robbery in Paris. Like, definitely would stay in, hated to go out, I didn’t want anyone to know where I was or be seen. I just had such anxiety.”
She recalled an experience with her now-estranged husband, Kanye West when they went out in public for the first time after quarantine.
“I was so freaked out. People were trying to come up to Kanye and, like, talk to him and, like, come up to me and ask for photos,” she said of leaving her multimillion-dollar compound to go to dinner at Nobu Malibu.
“I was just, like, absolutely not. I would stop people, like, ‘Get away. This is my first time out, I’m not comfortable with you coming a step closer.’ … I don’t get even remotely, unless [fans] have a selfie stick and want to do it six feet away. That was, like, high anxiety on another level.”
In October 2016, the KKW Beauty mogul was tied up and put in the bathtub of her hotel room by five armed robbers who had posed as cops to gain entry. They left with $10 million worth of jewelry, including a $5 million engagement ring from West.
She fired her security guard, Pascal Duvier, immediately after and sued the security company for negligence. She secretly settled the $6.1 million lawsuit in October 2020.
