Kim Kardashian Experienced The Anxiety Disorder ‘Agoraphobia’ During Quarantine

It was recently revealed that Kim Kardashian experienced agoraphobia during last year’s quarantine that stemmed from her 2016 Paris robbery. Agoraphobia is a fear of being in situations where escape might be difficult or that help wouldn’t be available if things go wrong. It is also defined as an extreme or irrational fear of entering open or crowded places or of leaving one’s own home. In a newly released bonus clip from the series Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian shared that she battled with the anxiety disorder amid the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown. She said,

“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.”

She continued and said her anxiety became worse when she and her soon-to-be ex-husband Kanye West left their home for the first time following 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.”

She added,

“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.”

As previously reported, in 2016 Kim Kardashian was tied up and put in the bathtub of her hotel room while in Paris by five armed robbers who reportedly posed as cops to gain entry. The intruders stole $10 million worth of jewelry, including a $5 million engagement ring from Kanye West, that night. Kim has spoken about the tragic incident on KUWTK and shared that she feels she can no longer trust anyone.
