PARIS (KRON) — Kanye West was in the middle of a concert in New York when he learned that his wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room.
The 39-year-old rapper was performing “Heartless” at Meadows Music & Arts Festival when he told crews to stop the music.
“I’m sorry, family emergency, I have to stop the show,” West told the audience.
Armed robbers forced their way into a private Paris residence where Kim Kardashian West was staying, tied her up and locked her in a bathroom before making off with more than $10 million worth of jewelry, police officials said.
A spokeswoman for Kardashian West said the reality TV star, who was in Paris attending fashion week shows, was badly shaken but physically unharmed. Police said she left Paris Monday morning.
