The reality star opens up about the terrifying ordeal on next week's 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians.'

Kim Kardashian is opening up about her terrifying ordeal in Paris last October when she was tied up and robbed of jewelry worth $11 million.

In a preview of next Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, a tearful Kim Kardashian recounts how her assailants threatened her with a gun and how she thought there was “no way out.”

The reality TV star says the robbers demanded cash and then became physical. "They dragged me out on to the hallway on top of the stairs," she said in the clip posted by E! "That's when I saw the gun clear, like clear as day. I was kind of looking at the gun, looking down back at the stairs." 

Kardashian is seen telling her concerned sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, that she had only a second to decide what to do next.

"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—ed. There's no way out."

According to reports, 17 people were arrested in connection with the Oct. 3 crime. Watch the clip below.
