In the early hours of this morning at 3am Kim Kardashian was robbed at gun point by masked men at the luxury apartment she was staying in, Paris where she had been attending Fashion Week.
It is being reported that 5 masked men pretending to be policemen held the reality star at gunpoint, ties her up and locked her up in a bathroom, before making away with millions of dollars of jewellery.
Her rapper hubby, Kanye Wes who was performing at the Meadows Festival in New York at the time, abruptly ended a performance in New York less than an hour into his set, as news of the robbery spread.
Video footage shows him telling the audience,
I’m sorry I have a family emergency, I have to stop the show.

Kim Kardashian held at gunpoint gets worldwide press. People dying everyday due to war gets nothing. Our fault for being celebrity obsessed.

Don't feel sorry for Kim Kardashian. If you flaunt it and shove it in people's faces then what do you expect? #cow

Kim Kardashian is a mother, a wife, daughter and sister. Despite the fact that you don't like her, being held up at gun point is not funny.

Just because Kim Kardashian's rich doesn't mean its funny that she got robbed. Would it be funny if it was your sister? or your mother?

If you're laughing at Kim Kardashian being held at gunpoint just because she's Kim Kardashian we've all learned VOLUMES about your character

Whether you like Kim Kardashian or absolutely hate her, nobody deserves to be held at gunpoint. Dont forget she's a mother, a wife, a sister
