Kim Kardashian West has been held at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room amid reports that millions of dollars of jewellery were stolen.
Armed, masked men dressed as police carried out the celebrity in his hotel room on Sunday, reported CNN.
Ina Treciokas, a spokeswoman confirmed the incident to CNN, indicating that Kardashian West was “badly shaken, but without physical harm.”
AFP reported that the Paris police have confirmed that “jewels worth millions” was stolen.
Franceinfo reported that Kardashian West’s bodyguard had been handcuffed during the incident, and that there were five robbers armed with handguns.
Kardashian West has been in Paris since last week for fashion week and had attended the Balenciaga show earlier on Sunday.
The 35-year-old reality star had then sat in the front row at the Givenchy show, with her sister Kourtney and their mother, Kris Jenner, in a show of support of their sister, Kendall Jenner, who was modelling in the presentation.
The family has been uncharacteristically silent on social media since the report involving Kardashian West.
Her husband, Kanye West, had abruptly ended his performance at the Meadows music and arts festival at Citi Field in New York on Sunday night.
He stopped midway through his performance of Heartless, citing a “family emergency”.
This was confirmed by the Meadows NYC on Twitter.
Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early. Please get home safely.
Kardashian West is herself prolific user of Twitter and Snapchat but, at the time of writing, she had not posted about the incident to social media.
However her name was trending on Twitter and Facebook as the report of the attempted robbery spread, with many casting doubt on the story.
Carpool Karaoke host James Corden reminded those making fun of the reality star that she was a “mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend”.
People making jokes about @KimKardashian tonight would do well to remember that she’s a mother,a daughter,a wife,a friend. Be nice or shut up
”Some shit just isn’t funny. I see you trying, but it isn’t,” tweeted Chrissy Teigen, a model who is friends with the Wests.

Fame is interesting. Celebs are supposed to love you guys while also knowing you’d make a meme of our dead bodies to get retweets

In a separate incident in Paris on Wednesday, she was rushed by a man while getting out of her vehicle prompting her security team to step in.
A self-described “entertainment Hollywood reporter” from Ukraine had attempted to grab the model Gigi Hadid in Milan days earlier.
Kardashian West tweeted after the incident: “My security [Pascal Duvier] is a G.”
On Sunday, before the incident reportedly took place, she had joked about Duvier crashing her paparazzi shots.
