Kim Kardashian's robbery ordeal in Paris on Sunday night lasted only six minutes, but they were six minutes of pure terror, sources tell TMZ. The sources say she was only wearing her robe and feared she would be raped when masked men broke into the apartment where she was staying and tied her hands with plastic handcuffs. The robbers duct-taped her mouth shut as she pleaded for her life, the sources say. A friend sleeping in a downstairs bedroom phoned bodyguard Pascal Duvier after hearing the noise, and the insiders say he arrived just two minutes after the intruders made their getaway.

The robbers are believed to have made off with a ring and other valuables worth around $11 million. A source tells People that Kardashian was very badly shaken by the ordeal and will be dealing with the aftermath for some time. "She was just hysterical when she talked to Kanye," the source says. "He told her that he couldn't care less about the jewelry; he’s just thankful that she’s OK." Kardashian returned to New York on Monday and was reunited with husband Kanye West and their two children. The AP reports that West—who abruptly cut a concert short after learning of the robbery—has canceled two concerts this week and will resume touring in Chicago on Friday.
