Kanye West was in the middle of his show at The Meadows when he abruptly ended it mid-song saying there has been a "family emergency." .
According to AP: Masked men robbed U.S. reality TV star Kim Kardashian West at gunpoint in a luxury residence in Paris early on Monday, stealing millions of dollars of jewelry, police and her publicist said. Five attackers struck around 3 a.m. (0100 GMT) inside the block used by celebrities and wealthy individuals behind the city's Madeleine church, a police source told Reuters.
Kardashian West's husband, rapper Kanye West, abruptly ended a performance in New York less than an hour into his set, as news of the robbery spread.
"I'm sorry I have a family emergency, I have to stop the show," West said in video footage posted on Twitter by fans at the Meadows Festival in the city's borough of Queens.
Kardashian West's spokeswoman, Ina Treciokas, had earlier said two masked gunmen dressed as policemen held up the star in her room. "She is badly shaken but physically unharmed," the statement added.
Kardashian West was in Paris with her sisters Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian, Billboard magazine reported, citing their recent Snapchat posts.
Police were guarding the site on Monday morning.
Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early. Please get home safely.
Kardashian West has stayed in the residence at least once before, in 2014, before her marriage to rapper Kanye West. Kanye was performing his Governors Ball make-up show tonight as the headliner of The Meadows Festival in Queens, NY when he suddenly ended his set mid-song. Based on the video below, he was performing his 2008 hit "Heartless" when he suddenly told the crowd "Sorry, family emergency, I have to stop the show."
The crowd seemed to think the sudden walk-off was another one of Kanye's just-being-Kanye moments. But things got real when the festival themselves tweeted confirmation that Kanye had to suddenly leave:
Here's the footage below:
Festival goers said Kanye was close to 30 minutes late for his set and he abruptly ended it roughly 20 minutes early.
