Kim Kardashian shared a message of support from a seemingly unlikely source. On Sunday, the 36-year-old reality star’s traumatic episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians aired, showing her retelling the horrifying ordeal she went through last October when robbed at gunpoint.
Following the episode, Kim took to Twitter to share a photo of a group of French paparazzi, who sent her their well wishes.

“To Kim & the Kardashians, ‘We don’t love you because we need you, We need you because we love you’ All the very best, Your favorite french paps,” the message on the photo read.
This isn’t the first time the mother of two has shown her appreciation for the French photographers. Back in 2014, the then-newlywed posted a paparazzi photo from France to Instagram writing, “The paparazzi are so nice and respectful to where I felt comfortable bringing North out. Thankful no one yells and scares her.”
Tonight's episode is going to be very tough for me. However, I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my own words could be twisted. I have always shared so much & I'm not going to hold back when this was probably one of the most life changing experiences for me. I would never wish this experience upon anyone, but have learned some valuable lessons & feel so blessed to be safe home with my babies & husband. To my friends, family, and loved ones I can't thank you enough for being there when I needed you the most. To the French police, thank you for your incredible hard work. *This was our last family photo taken in Paris
