Yeezy abruptly ended his set at The Meadows upon learning that his wife was in trouble
Kanye West had to press pause on his concert at The Meadows NYC late Sunday night due to a “family emergency”. It was later reported by CNN that Kim Kardashian West was held at gunpoint by “fake” police, who had found their way into her hotel room in Paris, where she has been attending Paris Fashion Week.
The two men were masked, and dressed up as police officers. It has not been confirmed whether or not Kardashian was robbed, but a representative for Kardashian has informed press that she is “badly shaken but physically unharmed.”
Footage of West shutting down the concert in the middle of performing “Heartless” – only 10 minutes into his set headlining for the Meadows Music & Arts Festival – was posted to Twitter by @Genius, and the concert’s cancellation was confirmed by The Meadows:

This shake-up comes only three days after Kardashian was harrassed by prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who attempted to plant his lips on her bum while she walked through the streets in Paris.
UPDATE: According to Associated Press, police say up to £5.2m worth of possessions, mostly jewellery, has been stolen.
