Yesterday Kanye West was doing his thing at the Meadows Festival in Queens, New York when he abruptly brought his set to an end and left the venue. He had a “family emergency” to attend to, he explained. It wasn’t until a couple of hours later that the nature of the emergency was revealed. His wife, reality TV star/model Kim Kardashian had been robbed of her jewelry in her residence in Paris. Though the thugs were armed, she escaped unhurt. Badly shaken, but physically unharmed.
According to some reports from French media, the masked robbers accosted Mrs. West while she was in the bathroom at around 3am. They tied her up and proceeded to relieve her of $11 million worth of jewelry, including the 15k engagement ring that made all ladies jealous and diamond grills. Gold chains belonging to Kanye were also nicked. And where was her security during all this? The night guard watching over the room is said to have been handcuffed but what about her bodyguard? He quickly neutralized whatever threat celebrity prankster Vitalii Seiduk posed to Kim last Wednesday when he tried to kiss her behind as she entered a restaurant. But he somehow failed to deal with the threat when Kim’s life was in real danger. Good thing North and Saint West were not with their mum at the time of the incident. Reports are emerging that the assailants accessed the building by disguising themselves as police officers.
While investigations into the incident continue, attendees of the inaugural Meadows Festival have been expressing mixed reactions at the incident. Many have shown sympathy with Yeezy, posting supportive messages, but others are still griping about not getting the full value of their $300 tickets. Despite the fact that he was on stage for close to an hour before he was forced to leave.
