Kanye West cancels show after Kim Kardashian is robbed of millions at gunpoint

Reality TV star involved in incident at Paris hotel

Kanye West cut short a concert in New York after his wife Kim Kardashian was involved in an incident at a Paris hotel in which she was held at gunpoint.

Rapper West was performing at the Meadows Festival in New York City on Sunday night (October 2), departing the stage during a rendition of his song ‘Heartless’, citing to the crowd a “family emergency”. Watch that moment in the fan-shot video beneath.

A spokesperson has since said: “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.”


Paris police confirmed to the BBC that they are investigating a robbery involving Kardashian.

A police spokesperson has also revealed that Kardashian was robbed of a jewellery box worth up to €6 million and a ring valued at €4 million .

Neither Kardashian or West have responded to the reports publicly.


Meanwhile, former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has slated West, saying that he was “not having” the star and his brand of “designer rap”.

It’s not the first time that Gallagher has criticised West. Last year Gallagher hit out at West’s Brit Awards performance, describing it as “utter shit”.
