Kim Kardashian has reunited with Kanye West after being held at gunpoint during a robbery attack in Paris on Sunday.

The reality star flew into Teterboro airport in New Jersey Monday to meet up with her husband following what's been a terrifying 12 hours. She was joined by Kris Jenner, Corey Gamble and lots of security as she reunited with her husband, and E! News has learned the pair was headed to their New York City apartment.

Friends La La Anthony and Jonathan Cheban were also seen walking into the Tribeca building, where media were camped out all day.

Kardashian West was gagged and bound at her hands and feet, then handcuffed and held at gunpoint by two armed masked men dressed as police officers, her rep confirmed to E! News Sunday.

A source told E! Kardashian West was terrified she was going to be killed. "She begged for them to let her live and [said] she has babies at home. Then they wrapped her mouth in tape and put her in the bathtub." Scared and alone, Kardashian feared the worst. "She thought they were for sure going to kill her," the source said.


The 35-year-old "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star was "badly shaken but physically unharmed," her rep added.

Kardashian West was in the city for Paris Fashion Week.

The French Interior Ministry said five men threatened a concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open Kardashian West's private apartment. Per "Today" show, the Paris Prosecutor's office confirmed two of the men gained entry to her room. One of Kardashian West's rings, worth an estimated $4.49 million, as well as a jewelry box, worth an estimated $5.6 million, were stolen.

A source told E! News Kardashian West was "really shaken up" by the incident. Her children, North West and Saint West, were not in the room.

According to NBC 4 New York, the five men escaped on bikes. They are still at large.

Kardashian West has not spoken publicly about what transpired.

After the men left with "all her jewelry," Kardashian West "broke out of her bindings and got out," the source told E! News. Later, after speaking with Parisian police, the reality star boarded a plane. Kardashian West's sister, supermodel Kendall Jenner, left Paris separately Monday.

Before news of the robbery became public, Kardashian West's husband, Kanye West cut his set short during the Meadows Festival in Queens, New York. West said he had a "family emergency."

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo condemned the attack on Kardashian via Twitter Monday, saying she's always welcome in Paris. "This very rare act occurred in a private space and does not in any way call into question the work of the police and the security of the public space," she said.

On Sunday, E! News reached out to Kardashian West's mother, Kris Jenner, who said she "will be OK."
