Kim Kardashian West was held at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room Sunday night, according to her spokesperson.

“Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers. She is badly shaken but physically unharmed,” spokesperson Ina Treciokas tells CNN.

Kardashian West is currently overseas for Paris Fashion Week along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.

Her husband, rapper Kanye West, abruptly left his set early at the Meadows Festival in New York on Sunday night after telling concert goers there had been a “family emergency.”

The Meadows NYC’s official Twitter account confirmed West would not be coming back to finish his set.

Concert attendees shared videos of the abrupt departure. The crowd gasped in surprise.

“Dude just ran on stage and grabbed Kanye and he said, ‘Sorry guys, family emergency I have to leave the show’ and just ran off the stage,” Twitter user Joe Berg said.

“It was wild, too, because Kanye ignored the dude at first like on some ‘I can’t leave’ and dude wouldn’t leave without Kanye leaving with him.”

CNN’s Frank Pallotta was at the concert and tweeted: “Everyone was shock it just ended. No reason given, just ‘family emergency.'”

Just a few hours before the traumatic incident, Kim attended the Givenchy runway show where Kendall was walking. Kim and Kanye are very close with Givenchy’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci. Kimye, as the couple is collectively known, visit Paris regularly and also held part of their lavish wedding there in 2014. The couple hosted their rehearsal dinner at Versailles and Lana Del Rey performed.

Earlier in the day Kim posted a picture of her outfit to Instagram with the caption “Details.”
