This evening, Kanye West prematurely ended his set at New York’s Meadows Music Festival citing a “family emergency.” Now, CNN reports that the rapper left the stage after learning that his wife, Kim Kardashian West, had been held at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room.
A spokesperson told CNN that Kardashian was held by two armed men posing as police officers. She is said to be “badly shaken but physically unharmed.”
Update – October 2nd, 11:55 p.m. CT: According to People, the couple’s two children were not with Kardashian at the time of the incident.
Update – October 3rd, 7:15 a.m. CT: French officials told CNN that five men were involved in the incident. They threatened the hotel’s concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him, and forced him to open Kardashian’s room. Two of the men then entered her room and pointed a gun at her head before locking her inside a bathroom. They made out with two cell phones and jewelry worth upwards of $10 million dollars. After speaking with police, Kardashian has left the country.
Kardashian was in town for Paris Fashion Week. Kanye made a brief trip overseas to visit her late last week.
