She told her family she heard footsteps pounding up the stairs:
“My heart started to get really tense. I knew something wasn’t quite right.”
At one point “I was looking at the gun, looking down back at the stairs. I have a split second in my mind to make this quick decision. Am I going to run down the stairs and either be shot in the back—it makes me so upset to think about it—but either they’re going to shoot me in the back or if I make it and they don’t, if the elevator doesn’t open in time or the stairs are locked, then I’m f–ked! There’s no way out.”
She asked the guy from the concierge–who was handcuffed and translating for her– “I have babies. Please, they can’t understand me, but tell them I have babies at home. Please, I have a family. Let me live!”
She revealed they covered her mouth with duct tape, “And then, he grabs my legs and I wasn’t, you know, I had no clothes on under. He pulled me toward him at the front of the bed and I thought, ‘OK, this is the moment they’re going to rape me. I fully mentally prepped myself—and then he didn’t.”
They put duct tape around her legs and held a gun to her head, “I just knew that was the moment. They’re just totally going to shoot me in the head. I just prayed that Kourtney’s going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed.”
“I have a family. I have my kids, my husband, my mom—I’m not going to make it out of here. I know how these things go.” That was her last thought before they finally picked her up and put her in the bathtub before fleeing with the jewelry.
That truly sounds like a nightmare. Think what you want of her and the family, I think we can all agree we’re HAPPY that she made it out of that okay.
