The 35-year-old reality star's spokesperson Ina Treciokas told DailyMail.com:
'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.'The event appeared to have happened between the hours of 3 to 4 am (CET).
Several details remain unclear about the incident including if anything was taken from her in the
attack and how (or if) it was stopped by security.
Her sisters Kourtney and Kendall were staying at The Peninsula Hotel in the city but a spokesperson for the hotel said it 'is not aware of any of its guests being attacked in our hotel.'
Meanwhile, on hearing the news, Kanye West immediately ended his concert at Meadows Festival in Queens, New York on Sunday.
Press play to watch the moment the 39-year-old rapper shocked fans as he abruptly cut his set short and walked off-stage because of a family emergency. The crowd was obviously stunned at the shock announcement as Kanye could be seen quickly exiting the stage.
He reportedly cut his headline set 20 minutes early after showing up 30 minutes late.
One Twitter user at the event named Stephen Dacres described the scene as he wrote:
'Kanye's assistant pulled him to the side of the stage then Ye got on the mic saying he had a family emergency then stopped the show #Meadows.'
The Famous hitmaker was the headliner of the two day music and arts festival featuring other acts including Chance The Rapper, J. Cole, Empire Of The Sun, The 1975 and Damian Marley.
