DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that three men broke into Kemsley’s $6.4 million Encino Hills  home just before 11pm PT on Thursday night while she and her children slept. 

Kemsley had only just returned from a trip to London, where she attended her nephew’s wedding on Tuesday night alongside her husband, PK Kemsley.

PK was still abroad at the time of the attack and is now headed back to California to be with his wife, who is said to have been ‘traumatized’ by the incident.

In her first post since the invasion, Kemsley said she appreciated the outpouring of support she has received and added that her family needed to start the healing process. 

Kemsley said: ‘I have thrown myself straight back into work as I want our family to return to normality as soon as possible. 

‘With the love and support of my husband, my incredible family, friends, fans and followers, I am confident this is the right thing to do whilst I independently work through the trauma.’

Kemsley told TMZ on Friday night that she has since hired 24-hour security to bolster their protection. 

‘Lots of precaution. We will avoid anything that could put us in this situation again. That’s for sure.’

She added that the one thing going through her head during the invasion was that she needed to keep her children safe, as she was forced to beg for her life and told the three invaders who held her at gunpoint ‘don’t hurt my babies. Don’t kill me. I’m a mom.’

According to their mother, Jagger, seven, and Phoenix, five, slept through the ordeal.

When asked if she planned on moving, Kemsley said she and husband Paul Kemsley – AKA PK -,  who was in London at the time of the late-night attack, were going ‘to take it one step at a time.’

‘We still have to figure everything out. It’s very, very new,’ she added.

PK, however, seemed more determined to put his wife and children out of harm’s way by leaving their mansion in Encino Hills.

‘I would think we might [move],’ he said, but revealed he doesn’t know where to yet.

His reality TV star wife admitted she might’ve been targeted by the criminals because of her posts on social media. On Instagram, Kemsley regularly shares her lavish lifestyle and outfits with her 1.3 million followers. 

During the invation, the intruders entered the home around 10.50pm by smashing through the children’s classroom door. 

Two of the suspects walked into Kemsley’s bedroom while she was sleeping. She woke to them standing at the end of her bed.
