Kanye West has postponed two stops on his Saint Pablo Tour after his wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, Live Nation announced Monday night.

“Due to family concerns, this week’s Philadelphia and Detroit dates on the Saint Pablo Tour have been rescheduled,” Live Nation said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “The Philadelphia show will take place on December 13 and the Detroit show on December 22.”

West abruptly ended his headlining performance at the debut Meadows Music and Arts Festival in Queens, New York on Sunday night. “I’m sorry, there’s a family emergency, I have to stop the show,” West announced before leaving the stage.

Kardashian, who was in France for Paris Fashion week, was reportedly robbed in her hotel room by armed, masked men who entered her room dressed as police. The men tied her up with handcuffs and tape during the course of the robbery and reportedly made off with millions of dollars in jewelry, electronics and money.

Kardashian, who had just posted an Instagram photo of the baubles, was only able to make out the word “ring” from the robbers’ demands.

The reality personality also allegedly “thought she was going to be raped and murdered” during the incident, according to Us. The publication went on to report that Kardashian’s rep said she is “badly shaken, but physically unharmed.”

Sources apparently told TMZ that Kardashian was lying in bed wearing nothing but a bathrobe, when she heard loud footsteps on the staircase, but before she could phone her bodyguard the men were already in the room.

“Before she could finish dialing one of the men yanked the phone out of her hands. They zip tied her hands with plastic handcuffs and duct taped her to make it more secure. We’re told one of the men grabbed her by the ankles… Kim told cops at that point she believed she was about to be raped,” states the TMZ report.

The 35-year-old left Paris Monday morning, landing in New York with husband West by her side a few hours after the robbery.

The Saint Pablo tour is currently scheduled to resume on Oct. 7 in Chicago.
