Kim Kardashian Robbery: Kanye West Cuts Short NYC Meadows Festival Performance Citing 'Family Emergency'
Kim Kardashian West's rapper husband Kanye West stopped and left his Meadows Festival performance Sunday night after learning that his wife was robbed and held at gunpoint by men dressed in police uniform in her Paris hotel room.
West had been invited to The Meadows Music and Arts Festival at Citi Field in Queens, a two-day event that ended Sunday. He apologized at the middle of his performance and abruptly left to attend to his family's emergency, CBS News reports. The audiences were then puzzled with what kind of emergency dragged the artist out of the stage as he left with no further explanation.
"I'm sorry I have a family emergency, I have to stop the show," West told his fans as he left the stage. This was captured in a video footage posted by a fan on his Twitter account.
Fans present during the event expressed their disappointment, while some others claimed emergencies could happen to anyone. The event organizers also took to Twitter to release a statement in defense of West and express their appreciation of his performance as well as their regards to his family.
The reason behind Kanye's family emergency was initially unconfirmed until reports from Paris aired on TV that Kim was robbed at her hotel room by men posing as police officers. Paris police said the reality star was in her bathroom when the robbers assaulted her.
The TV personality was reportedly tied and held at gunpoint by five men, who then bagged her valuables costing $6.7 million and her ring which costs about $4.4 million.
"Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening by two armed masked men dressed as police officers," Kim's spokeswoman Ina Treciokas said in a statement, as reported by CNN. "She is badly shaken but physically unharmed," she added.
Kanye was getting to the middle of his song number "Heartless" at the music festival when his handler pulled him to the side to break the news about Kim being robbed.
