Inside Kim Kardashian's harrowing 24 hours: Exactly what happened in her Paris hotel room.

Further details of Kim Kardashian West’s Paris robbery have emerged, with a number of publications claiming the reality star was bound, gagged and kept captive in a bathroom while masked intruders ransacked her Paris mansion of approximately $14 million of jewellery and mobile phones.

iTELE is reporting that the 35-year-old star had a gun held to her temple by one of the five masked robbers before being bound by packing tape and forced into a bathroom.

The mansion's concierge was allegedly found with his hands and feet tied to the staircase.

It has not been confirmed if the star's children, three-year-old daughter North and nine-month-old son Saint were with Kardashian West at the time, but The Mirror is reporting that the mother-of-two begged the masked robbers for her life, telling them she has "babies at home."

It is also being reported that after the criminals fled the scene, Kardashian West  eventually broke free of her restraints and was able to call for help before eventually contacting husband Kanye West, who cut short a concert to speak to his shaken wife.

“Kim was terrified,” a friend of West's told The Daily News following the call.

“She was just hysterical when she talked to Kanye. He said she was really upset and it took him a few seconds to understand what she was saying to him.”

Returning to New York on a private flight with her assistant Steph Shephard and bodyguard Pascal Duvier on Monday afternoon, 35-year-old Kardashian West was greeted at the airport by West before the pair returned to their Tribeca home.

Kardashian West had been in the French capital as part of Paris Fashion Week, sharing her temporary home with her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney Kardashian.

It has not been confirmed if either were present at the time of the robbery, but it is understood that younger sister Kendall Jenner, who is modelling in a number of fashion shows throughout the week rushed to be by her sister's side in the hours that followed the robbery.

More to come.
