Earlier tonight, Kanye West stopped his performance mid-“Heartless” at a show in NYC after learning that his wife, Kim Kardashian, had been held up at gunpoint in her hotel room in Paris, CNN reports.
“I’m sorry. There’s a family emergency, I have to stop the show,” West said at The Meadows, a festival in Queens, before the lights onstage went out.
That family emergency is a scary one. As CNN reports, “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,” Kardashian spokesperson Ina Treciokas said.
Fans were initially skeptical about West’s sudden departure from the stage.
But that skepticism quickly changed to shock and support after CNN broke the news of what the family emergency really was.
We’re just glad everyone is OK.
