Kanye West abruptly ended his appearance at a music festival in New York City after his wife Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room, a spokesperson said.
West was performing at The Meadows Music and Arts Festival at Citi Field in Queens Sunday night when he made the announcement.
The spokesperson said that Kim Kardashian was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room Sunday evening. Two armed, masked men dressed as police officers entered her hotel room during the robbery.
Kardashian was described as “badly shaken” after the hotel room robbery, but physically unharmed. She is in the French capital for Paris Fashion Week.
Witnesses tell the Daily News that West told the crowd he was “sorry” there was a “family emergency” and had to “stop the show.”
The Meadows Music and Arts Festival sent out a tweet saying “Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early.”
Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early. Please get home safely.
