Earlier this 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.
According to CNN’s Joe Sutton, Kardashian, who was visiting Paris for Fashion Week, was unharmed.
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.”
This explains a lot considering how suddenly Kanye flew off the stage. Twitter user Joe Berg painted a picture of a frustrated, then extremely concerned Kanye:
“It was wild, too, because Kanye ignored the dude at first like on some ‘I can’t leave’ and dude wouldn’t leave without Kanye leaving with him.”
As of these reports, it doesn’t seem like Kardashian and West’s children, North and Saint, were present at the time of the robbery. There are many rumors already circulating, but currently, it is unknown what, if anything, was taken from Kardashian during the robbery. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
