(WWBT/CNN) -

Rapper Kanye West abruptly left his set early at the Meadows Festival in New York on Sunday night after learning his wife, Kim Kardashian West, was held at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room.

"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," Kim Kardashian West spokesperson Ina Treciokas tells CNN.

Kim is currently overseas for Paris Fashion Week along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sister, Kendall Jenner.

West told concert goers that he had to leave due to a "family emergency" and 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.
