Kim Kardashian Concierge Says I'm a Victim Too Staying Calm Saved Us

Kim Kardashian has no reason to feel suspicious of the concierge who let gunmen into her apartment this week ... so says the concierge himself.

The 40-year-old apartment gatekeeper has written an open letter to Kim, trying to assuage her doubts that he's simply a victim. Kim has made a point of saying the concierge remained almost too calm when confronted by the robbers.  

The concierge wrote, "Dear Kim: When you feel the cold steel of a gun at your neck, it is the moment when remaining calm can mean the difference of life or death, both our lives."  In the letter, published in Closer magazine, he ends with "I hope you are feeling better."

As we previously reported, Kim turned to the concierge and said, "Are we gonna die?" He responded in a calm voice, "I don't know."
