US reality TV star Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint on Sunday night at a hotel in Paris, where she is attending Fashion Week, according to CNN.

The 35-year-old media personality escaped uninjured from the incident. The identities of the perpetrators were not initially known. 

"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," her spokesperson told CNN. 

 Meanwhile, her husband, rapper Kanye West, abruptly ended a performance in New York citing a family emergency.

"Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early," the Meadows Music Festival said in a post on Twitter, adding "Please get home safely."

"I'm sorry I have a family emergency, I have to stop the show," West said in video footage posted on Twitter by fans who were filming the performance in the New York borough of Queens.

West had been on stage for just under an hour when he said he had to leave.

Fan reaction on social media sites was mixed, with some saying emergencies can happen to anyone, but others complaining they had paid $300 for tickets and didn't get their money's worth.
