Concertgoers at Kanye West’s Oct. 2 show were left confused and stunned as the rapper abruptly cut his set short for a ‘family emergency,’ which, we later found out, was that his wife, Kim Kardashian, had been robbed and held at gunpoint in Paris. Watch the moment he stopped the show here.
Kanye West, 39, was in the middle of a concert in New York City when he got news that something terrible had happened to his wife, Kim Kardashian, 35, and he understandably informed the crowd that he would have to cancel the rest of his set. He was right in the middle of singing the song “Heartless” when he cut the music and told the audience he had to leave for a “family emergency,” causing them to mutter in confusion as he exited the stage. Watch it all go down above.
Obviously, we later found out that the “emergency” was that Kim had been robbed and held at gunpoint in her apartment in Paris. She was tied up and locked in her bathroom as five masked men, dressed as cops, raided, stealing $11 million worth of jewelry. Once they left, she was able to free herself and call for help, and an investigation is currently underway.
It’s unclear what Kanye did or where he went after leaving the stage, but the reality star was photographed boarding a private jet just hours after the terrifying ordeal. ‘Ye has a scheduled show in Philly on Oct. 4, but we obviously wouldn’t be surprised if he changed his plans to head home to L.A. and be with his family following the robbery. We will continue to keep you updated as new detail emerge.
