Kanye West doesn't often smile for the paparazzi—and on Monday, he had less of a reason to do so. Dressed in street clothes, the solemn rapper stepped out in New York City, less than 12 hours after he abruptly canceled his set during the Meadows Music and Arts Festival. At the time, he cryptically told the audience, "I'm sorry, family emergency—I have to stop the show."
Fans soon learned why Kanye cut his set short 20 minutes early: his wife, Kim Kardashian, had been robbed at gunpoint in Paris. E! News has confirmed that five men wearing ski masks and police jackets were involved in the robbery about 3 a.m. local time. Two men entered her room at No Address Hotel, bound her hands and feet with tape, then locked her in the bathroom. The bandits stole $10 million worth of jewelry and other personal effects before fleeing the scene on bikes. Needless to say, Kim was terrified. As a source told E! News, "She begged for them to let her live and [said] she has babies at home…She thought they were for sure going to kill her."
