On Sunday evening, Kanye West cut his performance about 20 minutes short at the Meadows festival in Queens, New York. "I'm sorry," he said. "I have a family emergency. I have to stop the show." Update: West has postponed several upcoming tour dates, Billboard reports.

According to a report from CNN with info from French officials, this is because his wife, Kim Kardashian, was "held at gunpoint and robbed by men dressed as police officers in her private apartment in Paris."

West was performing "Heartless" when someone ran onstage and delivered the news, Pigeons and Planes reports.

French news source BFMTV lists Kardashian's wedding ring and a jewelry box -- estimated value $10 million -- among the items reported stolen.

“I condemn the attack Kim Kardashian suffered last night in her hotel,” Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo said in a statement obtained by The New York Times. “She has my support and will always be welcome here in Paris. I have full confidence that the police force, as part of their investigation, will quickly identify and apprehend the perpetrators of these acts.”
