On Sunday night, Kanye West was in the middle of a concert performance in New York City when he suddenly wrapped up and walked off stage, citing a "family emergency."
Soon after, the details of that emergency emerged — and it was indeed very serious.
Kim Kardashian, who has been in Paris for fashion week, was held at gunpoint inside her hotel room. According to E! News, it was "two armed masked men dressed as police officers" who perpetrated the offense. The reality star was "badly shaken but physically unharmed."
New details emerged overnight: The French Interior Ministry said that five men used a weapon to threaten the concierge, and then handcuffed the man and forced him to let them gain access to Kim's apartment. The two men who entered the room made off with one of Kim's rings, worth about $4.5 million.
She'd been flashing her diamonds on Instagram just days earlier.
They also stole a jewelry box containing $5.6 million in jewels. And they stole cell phones as well.
Kanye was on stage in New York and not present; sources say neither were the couple's children North and Saint.
Kim was also the victim of a much more benign attack last week in Paris.
