Kim Kardashian has been held at gunpoint in her Paris apartment by masked men dressed as police officers. "She is badly shaken but physically unharmed," the star's representative has confirmed. It is not yet clear whether Kim was robbed during the incident; police sources have suggested that jewellery worth millions of dollars were taken by the men. Her children North, three, and nine-month-old Saint are not believed to have been with her at the time.

Upon hearing the news, Kim's husband Kanye West abruptly let his set at the Meadows Festival in New York on Sunday night. He told the audience that he had to leave because of a "family emergency", and his team later released a statement that read: "Due to a family emergency, Kanye West was forced to end his performance towards the end of his set.

"We appreciate the great show he put on for fans to close the inaugural Meadows Festival. Our thoughts are with West and his family."

Kim is in Paris attending Paris Fashion Week with her mother Kris Jenner and sisters Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian. On Sunday she had attended the Balenciaga show before stepping out with Kourtney for a dinner hosted by designer Azzedine Alaia.

By 2.30 am Paris time, she was back in her apartment Facetiming brother Rob Kardashian and fiancée Blac Chyna to congratulate them on their baby shower, according to her Snapchat.  

The incident comes just four days after Kim was rushed by a man while getting out of her vehicle, prompting her security team to intervene. Vitalii Sediuk, a self-described entertainment Hollywood reporter from the Ukraine, had earlier attempted to grab model Gigi Hadid in Milan. "My security (Pascal Duvier) is a G," Kim tweeted after the event.
