Kim Kardashian said she begged robbers to "let her live" during her traumatic robbery ordeal in Paris last year.

The reality tv star (36) was targeted by a team of masked men dressed as police officers while residing at the exclusive No Address Hotel and had $10m worth of jewellery stolen.

The mother-of-two became something of a recluse and took a break from public life before reappearing after more than three months away from the spotlight.

In the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which aired in the US on Sunday night, she gave the most details about the terrifying experience.

Kardashian-West said the robbers demanded money but she told them: "I don’t have any money."

"They dragged me out on to the hallway on top of the stairs," she explained tearfully to sisters Kourtney and Khloe in the clip.

"That’s when I saw the gun, like clear as day.

"I was kind of looking at the gun, looking down back at the stairs."

"I was like, 'I have a split second in my mind to make this quick decision'," she said.

"Am I going to run down the stairs and either be shot in the back? It makes me so upset to think about it.

"Either they’re going to shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don’t, if the elevator does not open in time, or the stairs are locked, then like I’m f*****."

The social media mogul, who has two children Saint (one) and North (three), with husband Kanye West, said she begged the robbers to let her live.

"They had the gun up to me and I knew they were just going to shoot me in the head. Then he duck-tapes my face."

"Please I have a family. Let me live," she added.

The trailer for the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is jam-packed with drama focusing on the aftermath of Kim's roobery, including Kanye West's breakdown and subsequent hospitalisation and Scott Disick declaring he is a sex addict mixed with lighter moments like Khloe's boyfriend Tristan Thompson making his debut on the E! reality show.
