North West Saw a Broadway's 'Matilda' in N.Y.C. Hours Before Mom Kim's Nightmare Robbery

A source tells PEOPLE Kim Kardashian West is "still messed up" from a gunpoint robbery she endured early Monday morning in Paris

Kim Kardashian West went through the most horrific ordeal of her life early Monday morning, but her daughter North, 3, was safely out of danger’s reach.

A rep for the Shubert Organizaion in New York City has confirmed to PEOPLE that Kardashian West’s oldest child with husband Kanye West attended a performance of the Broadway hit Matilda on Sunday just hours before her mother was robbed at gunpoint thousands of miles away in Paris.

“She was there with two other children, a nanny and a security person,” reports the rep. “After the performance they went backstage and met the children’s ensemble and [the actress who played] Matilda. … The kids were excited to meet her.” (The rep could not confirm whether the other children were North’s cousins, Mason and Penelope Disick.)

Kardashian West, 35, returned to New York City immediately following police questioning and just hours after the frightening robbery on Monday morning.

“She’s still feeling completely messed up,” a source close to the family tells PEOPLE. “The situation was absolutely horrible. It was such a helpless feeling for her. It was such a terrifying situation.”

The Wests are currently camped out in their Manhattan apartment, receiving support from mom Kris Jenner as well as members of their inner circle Jonathan Cheban and La La Anthony.

Another source close to the family told PEOPLE on Monday: “Of course her family is all there for her, and Kanye is there for her, too, but she’s going to deal with the aftermath of this for a while.”
