Lance Bass doesn't think the Kardashian family will ''get over'' Kim Kardashian West's gunpoint robbery for ''a long time''.

The 36-year-old beauty - who is married to Kanye West - endured a horrific ordeal in Paris, France, last month when she was tied up by masked men in her apartment and had $10 million worth of jewellery stolen from her, and now the former *NSYNC star has revealed the Kardashian family are all still ''devastated'' by the incident.

Speaking on TV show 'Access Hollywood Live', the 37-year-old singer said: ''I spoke to Kris [Jenner, Kim's mother] right when it happened. Of course, the family was devastated over it. I mean, it's something that I don't think people are going to get over for a very long time. That's got to be a traumatic experience.

''But, you know, they're all together and are obviously a very supportive family. You couldn't ask for a better family to go through something like this together.''

Kim - who recently made a low-profile appearance at her half-sister Kendall Jenner's 21st birthday bash - has been ''staying out of the limelight'' since the ordeal, something which Lance says is because she is ''recovering''.

He added: ''She's kind of staying out of the limelight for right now and just kind of recovering from this. This is going to live with her for a very long time. It's very sad.''

Meanwhile, Lance - who has previously claimed he is ready to ''start the process'' of having children with his husband Michael Turchin - admitted he ''couldn't imagine'' what 60-year-old Kris must have felt knowing what her daughter had been through.

He said: ''You couldn't imagine your own child going through something like that. All the worst things go through your head of what could have been.''
