Kanye West abruptly leaves concert due to ‘Family Emergency’


Kanye West abruptly left a concert in New York City after telling fans he had a “family emergency.”

It is not yet clear what the emergency was, but West came on stage 30 minutes late to the Meadows Music & Arts Festival in Queens – then abruptly ended the show 20 minutes early and left the stage.

He was in the middle of performing “Heartless” when he interrupted the song and told the crowd, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Family emergency, I have to stop the show.”

West’s rep did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Kim Kardashian West has been in France for Paris Fashion Week with sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner for the last week.

It’s unclear where North, 3, and Saint, 9 months, have been during that time.

On Saturday night, West partied with LeBron James and the other members of the Cleveland Cavaliers after playing a show at the Quicken Loans Arena.

On Sunday, West was the headliner for the Meadows Music & Arts Festival. He came on stage about 30 minutes after his scheduled time and told the crowd “thanks for rocking with me tonight.”

A festival rep then came on stage about 10 minutes later and said the set was cancelled and that West was no longer on site.
