According to Page Six, a newly released bonus clip from “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” was released this week. In the clip, Kim Kardashian is seen telling her younger sister Khloé that the issues she experienced following the Paris robbery began to resurface during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We had just gone to Paris. We had just started traveling, and then quarantine happened. Now I’m, like, such a freak all over again and never want to, like, leave [home],” Kardashian stated in the clip. “I feel like I had agoraphobia, definitely, after my robbery in Paris. Like, definitely would stay in, hated to go out, I didn’t want anyone to know where I was or be seen. I just had such anxiety,” the reality star admitted.
In addition, Kardashian also opened up about how she struggled when she finally started going out again post-quarantine. “I was so freaked out. People were trying to come up to Kanye and, like, talk to him and, like, come up to me and ask for photos. I was just, like, absolutely not. I would stop people, like, ‘Get away. This is my first time out, I’m not comfortable with you coming a step closer.’ … I don’t get even remotely, unless [fans] have a selfie stick and want to do it six feet away. That was, like, high anxiety on another level,” the Skims founder confessed. Meanwhile, Kardashian’s comments are highly relatable to many fans, who are still dealing with anxiety surrounding the pandemic.
