It is unclear if the couple’s two children, three-year-old daughter North and 10-month-old son Saint, were at the home at the time. Police were guarding the site on Monday.
By 2:30 a.m. Paris time, just minutes before the robbery, she was back at her hotel room and Facetiming with brother Rob Kardashian and his fiancée Blac Chyna to wish them congratulations at their baby shower, according to her Snapchat.

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.
