Kelly Clarkson is quick to defend Kim Kardashian West against those who say the 35-year-old reality star's penchant for oversharing on social media may have led to her being robbed at gunpoint inside the apartment she was staying at in Paris, France.
"People overshare ...but it's asinine to say someone deserved that or asked for that," Clarkson tells ET's Jennifer Peros of the burglary. "That's, like, someone's mom and sister and daughter."
A source close to Kardashian West told ET that the mother of two -- who flew back to New York City on Monday morning -- was half asleep when men in masks came into her bedroom and duct-taped her mouth and bound her feet and hands. "All she kept saying over and over is, 'I have kids. Take anything you want. Please don't kill me. Please don't kill me,'" the source said.
"No one deserves to be held at gunpoint, even people we really don't like ...[even] if you don't like them," Clarkson says. "It's terrifying and not right."
Clarkson also isn't too surprised that Kardashian West had a reported $10 million worth of jewelry in her possession at the time of the burglary. "Tthey were probably three pieces [of jewelry] just worth a lot," the American Idol alum said in defense of Kardashian West. "It was probably three things, and she can wear whatever she wants."
CBS Radio News correspondent Elaine Cobbe confirmed on Monday that the burglars stole one ring estimated to be worth $4.5 million and a jewelry box with another $6 million worth of items. A source told ET that the ring was, in fact, the Lorraine Schwartz diamond accessory that Kanye West recently purchased for his wife. In addition, six to eight other pieces were apparently stolen, along with one of her phones.
In addition to Clarkson, who's currently promoting her children's book, River Rose and the Magical Lullaby, several other celebrities have spoken out in defense of Kardashian West, while some Twitter users are still accusing her of exaggerating the incident. "Besides the fact that it would not only be uncharacteristic of Kim to lie about something like this, she'd never put herself in this kind of danger," ET's source noted. "They wouldn’t do something like this for a reality show. She was scared for her life.”
