(Newser) – More details are emerging about Kim Kardashian's terrifying ordeal in Paris on Sunday night, report E! Online and NBC News. The 35-year-old reality-TV star was said to have been bound, gagged, and held at gunpoint, with NBC noting she was robbed in a room in a private mansion. A source familiar with the venue's security tells NBC that five men overpowered the night watchman and retrieved the key to where Kardashian was staying, and two of them reportedly broke in. Once inside, they tied her up by her hands and feet and handcuffed her in the bathroom, where a source tells E! she "begged for them to let her live and [said] she has babies at home. She thought they were for sure going to kill her." They're said to have taped her mouth and put her in the bathtub, and after they left with what's believed to be more than $10 million in jewelry, she broke free.

She reportedly hopped on a plane after speaking to local law enforcement. The source who spoke to NBC says the perps seemed to know they wouldn't get much trouble from security, which has led to whispers of an inside job. Bodyguard Pascal Duvier was MIA, though TMZ notes he's usually glued to her side (Kardashian had even tweeted a pic of him earlier Sunday, writing: "This guy is always in my shot!"). The site cites reports that because Kardashian had retired for the evening, Duvier may have been earning his paycheck by watching instead over sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner as they enjoyed a night out in the City of Light.
