Kim Kardashian Robbed at Gunpoint, Kanye West Cancels Show Mid-Performance

kim-kardashian-robbed Fans were alarmed when Kanye West abruptly left during a performance for a “family emergency”- which ended up being that his wife Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint overseas.

Kardashian was visiting Paris for Fashion Week when her apartment was broken into by five armed, masked men who then tied the reality star up at gunpoint and robbed her for $10 million worth of jewelry. “Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers,” Kim’s spokesperson shared with E! News. “She is badly shaken but physically unharmed.”

According to CNN, the man gained access to the apartment-within-a-mansion by threatening the concierge with a weapon, handcuffing him, then forcing him to open Kim’s apartment. Once inside, “Kardashian was gagged and bound at her hands and feet, then handcuffed and held at gunpoint,” according to E!. “She begged for them to let her live and (said) she has babies at home… She thought they were for sure going to kill her,” the unidentified source told the site.

The robbers stole a box with 5 million to 6 million euros’ ($5.6 million to $6.7 million) worth of jewels and a ring worth about 4 million euros ($4.5 million), the Paris police source said.

During the incident, West was performing at Meadows Festival in Queens, NY but abruptly left the stage after learning about what happened mid-performance. “I’m sorry I have a family emergency, I have to stop the show,” West told the audience in videos tweeted by fans.

Parisian Mayor Anne Hidalgo has spoken out about the incident as well. “We worry about the image of Paris. This will be all over the news channels, imagine the negative publicity,” Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, head of the conservative opposition in Paris, told Europe 1 radio.

Kim left Paris after speaking with the police and is now back in the States safe and sound.
