Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West has left France after being held at gunpoint and robbed by men dressed as police officers in a private apartment in Paris, French officials said.
Kardashian was staying at an apartment inside a luxury private mansion that can be rented out for days or weeks at a time.
Two men entered her room at No Address Hotel, bound Kardashian’s hands and feet with tape then locked her in the bathroom before stealing a jewelry box worth $6.7 million in jewelry and a ring worth $4 million, police sources told La Parisien.
Her purse, two cell phones and 1,000 euros were also taken.
Kanye West abruptly ended his headlining set at Meadows Music & Arts Festival in Queens, New York on Sunday night upon hearing the news about his wife’s scary encounter. He was in the middle of performing “Heartless” when he interrupted the song, telling fans, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Family emergency, I have to stop the show.”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.
“Due to a family emergency, Kanye West was forced to end his performance towards the end of his set. We appreciate the great show he put on for fans to close out the inaugural Meadows Festival,” the festival said in a statement. “Our thoughts are with West and his family.”
On Sunday afternoon, Kardashian gave a shout-out to her security team, posting a picture on Instagram of one of her bodyguards, Pascal Duvier, and joking, “This guy is always in my shot!”
Earlier last week, her bodyguards quickly pounced on well-known celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk when he tried to plant his lips on her behind.
