Spokeswoman says the reality star is shaken but physically unharmed
A spokeswoman for Kim Kardashian West says she was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room on Sunday night by two armed masked men dressed as police officers.
The representative said the reality TV star is “badly shaken but physically unharmed.” She offered no other details. Police told Reuters that five armed men stole jewellery worth several millions of dollars in the attack that took place at around 3am.
Kanye West was performing at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York at the time. He abruptly ended his set on Sunday night after telling his fans he had a family emergency.
“I’m sorry, family emergency I have to stop the show,” West told the audience. Kardashian West has been in Paris for fashion week. She attended the Givenchy show on Sunday evening.
She was also ambushed last week by a serial celebrity accoster who attempted to assault her as she was entering a restaurant. Kardashian West was also attacked outside of a Paris fashion week show in 2014. She wasn’t hurt in either incident.
Paris has been a special place for the Kardashian West and her husband, who spent the weekend there before marrying in Florence in May of 2014.
It’s unclear if the couple’s two children, three-year-old daughter North and 10-month-old son Saint, were with Kardashian West in the hotel room.
