Kim Kardashian West is in Paris with her family to see sister Kendall Jenner in Paris Fashion Week, but that idyllic trip received a horrible interruption Sunday night from "two armed masked men dressed as police officers." When word of the incident reached husband Kanye West at the Meadows Festival in New York, he abruptly walked offstage, citing a "family emergency."

The Kardashians confirmed the incident to CNN:

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.

When Kanye left the stage around 10 PM in New York, it would have been 4 AM in Paris, so presumably the masked men entered at night while the star was sleeping. The last Fashion Week even she had attended that night was the the Givenchy women's wear runway event, where Kendall was walking, with her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney:
