Last night Kanye was performing at the first ever Meadows Festival in New York. Kanye was in the middle of his set while performing “Heartless” when his assistant rushed to the stage to tell him something. After a brief conversation with his assistant, Kanye then made the following announcement: “I’m sorry, family emergency. I have to stop the show”. Then Kanye exited stage left. Check out the video of Kanye’s announcement below.
The crowd was stunned because Kanye was the final headlining act of the night following Chance The Rapper. A few hours later, we learned the nature of Kanye’s “family emergency”.
It has been reported that while in Paris, France Kim Kardashian West was robbed in her hotel room at gunpoint. At first, it was unclear on the number of assailants that committed this unfortunate crime. Some reports stated that there was two gunman while other reports stated that there were five gunmen. The number of gunmen was cleared up in a statement given by Ina Treciokas who is Kim Kardashian West’s spokesperson. Treciokas made the following statement to “Billboard“:
“ 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.”
There are also reports that the gunmen threatened the concierge and forced him to open Kim’s hotel room. Then the gunmen allegedly bound and gagged Kim with handcuffs and tape and forced her into her bathtub. We are not sure yet on the validity of those reports but we do know that Kim was not physically harmed. According to police, the robbers stole several million dollars worth of valuables and most of the items were jewelry. The total amount of what was taken is still being determined. It was reported that Kim K left France after giving her statement to the police.
