Kanye West Ends New York Concert After Gunmen Attack His Wife "Kim K" in Paris
Fans of Kanye West were left concerned and also disappointed after the rapper abruptly cut off his performance at the Meadows Festival in Queens, New York.
According to reports, Kanye was performing his song Heartless when his assistant pulled him to the side of the stage and when he returned he said: “I’m sorry, there’s a family emergency, I have to stop the show.”

Kanye was scheduled to perform until 10 p.m. but he made his announcement and stopped performing around 9:40 p.m. The rapper was the headliner of a two day music and arts festival featuring other acts including Chance The Rapper, J. Cole and Damian Marley.
Now CNN is reporting that Kanye had to end the concert because his wife, Kim Kardashian West, was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room. Kim’s spokesperson Ina Treciokas stated that Kim was held by two armed masked men dressed as police officers and although she is badly shaken, she is physically unharmed.
Just an hour prior to Kanye leaving the stage, Kim was active on Snapchat as she posted a video of herself FaceTiming with Blac Chyna during a baby shower with Rob Kardashian.
Kim is currently overseas for the Paris Fashion Week along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sister, Kendall Jenner.
