Earlier yesterday evening, Kanye West abruptly ended his concert at Meadows Fest citing a “family emergency.” It’s now being reported that said family emergency was his wife, Kim Kardashian, being robbed at gunpoint in Paris by thieves dressed as police officers.
Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early. Please get home safely.

Once Kanye received the news, he immediately existed the stage, as he should.
CNN’s report sheds more light on the scary situation:
“Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers. She is badly shaken but physically unharmed,” Kim Kardashian West spokesperson Ina Treciokas tells CNN.”
Kim was alone in a luxurious apartment in the Eighth Arrondissement, nearly two miles from the dinner, when two men burst in, tied her up and gagged her, then escaped with at least three accomplices, according officials.
They made off with at least $10 million dollars in jewelry.
The police officials and the mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo, vowed to get to the bottom of the crime and to reassure their citizens, and foreigners, that the French capital was safe to visit.
Additionally, the mayor also issued a state regarding the robbery.
“I condemn the attack Kim Kardashian suffered last night in her hotel. She has my support and will always be welcome here in Paris. I have full confidence that the police force, as part of their investigation, will quickly identify and apprehend the perpetrators of these acts.”
Kim gave a statement to the authorities before she left France on Monday with her daughter, North, 3, and son, Saint, who is 10 months old. Neither one of them were present during the robbery.
Only one question remains, why did Kim not have a security detail?
