Kris Jenner Said Kim Kardashian’s Traumatic Experience Made Her See the World ‘A Little Bit Differently’

Kris Jenner is known to many as the momager extraordinaire. It seems like any idea that pops into the matriarch’s head, she is able to turn into a multi-million dollar business venture. Between being a mother, a grandmother, starring in her own reality show, and managing her children’s wide range of businesses, there doesn’t seem like there is anything that this mother of six can’t do.

While it definitely seems like Jenner is the most goal-driven person on the planet, she has admitted that there were events that have happened in her life that caused her to take a step back and really reflect on the things that matter. One of those events was when her daughter Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris. So how did Kardashian’s traumatic Paris experience make Jenner see the world a little differently? Keep reading to find out.

What is Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner’s relationship like?

Kardashian is Jenner’s second-eldest child. When Kardashian was younger, she seemed to have a great relationship with her mom. However, in the early 90s, Kardashian found herself — along with her siblings — stuck in the middle of their parents’ divorce. It was revealed that mom Kris had cheated on her ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, with a much younger man. 

When Kardashian heard the news that her mom had cheated on her dad, she was obviously very hurt. However, she still did love her mother very much. The reality star has appeared to forgive her mother for what she did to Robert Kardashian Sr.

Kim Kardashian and Jenner seem to be pretty close nowadays. In fact, on most of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians episodes, the two are usually acting more like friends than they are mother and daughter.

What traumatic event did Kim Kardashian experience?

In October of 2016, Kardashian and her family flew to Paris for Fashion Week. The trip was going great at first, and she was even able to spend some time with her husband in Paris in the first few days.

However, on her last of the trip, Kardashian was held at gunpoint when a couple of masked armed robbers came barging into her hotel room and demanded that she give them her jewelry. The robbers ended up taking a few valuables, including a ring that was worth $4 million after tying her up and leaving her defenseless in the bathroom of her hotel room.

Physically, Kardashian was unharmed. But it shook her up very badly and left emotional scars that she is still dealing with today. After the incident, Kardashian said he horrifying event was “one of the scariest things I’ve ever been through in my entire life – just thinking that you’re about to die.”

Did Kim Kardashian’s traumatic experience make Kris Jenner see the world differently?

Shortly after Kardashian’s scary event, E! News had asked Jenner how Kardashian was holding up. Jenner said that, at the time, Kardashian was still going through the process of trying to heal. The matriarch of the family also said that the incident had greatly affected her as well.

Jenner said: “You start looking at the world a little bit different because when you have a daughter at home who’s struggling because of something horrific and tragic that happened, you start looking around a little bit differently. I think that this is a wake-up call not only for our family, but just for anybody in a similar position, and you just have to make sure that you do what you’re supposed to do. Keep it tight.”

Jenner was one of Kardashian’s biggest supporters after she went through a violent and terrifying experience in Paris. Although the experience was tragic, it also taught the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan to evaluate what is really important in life.
