Kanye West has more important things to worry about than music right now.
As previously reported and detailed, wife Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris very early Monday morning.
The details of the incident are legitimately disturbing, with multiple outlets confirming Kim was gagged and bound and feared she would be raped by her captors.
Kardashian called her husband as soon as she could on Monday, after breaking free from the plastic handcuffs that had been tied to her wrists and after speaking with French authorities.
Upon receiving the sort of phone call no husband ever wants to receive, Kanye responded in the only proper way he could:
Despite being in the middle of a show, he told the crowd that he had a “family emergency” and stepped away from the stage in the middle of “Heartless.”
The footage was captured by someone in attendance in Queens:
Now, with Kim physically okay, yet emotionally shaken to her core, Kanye has understandably made a few changes to his upcoming Saint Pablo tour.
The rapper show at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center on October 4 (that’s tonight!) and his engagement at The Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit, Michigan on October 6 have both been moved back.
The former will now take place on December 13 and the latter will take place on December 22.
The Wells Fargo Center confirmed this news and explained a few ticketing details via Twitter early today:
The Saint Pablo tour was previously set to come to a close on November 1 with a performance at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
But no one can rationally blame West for making these changes.
Kardashian is fortunately back home in the United States now, but she has undergone a truly frightening ordeal.
Around 2:30 a.m. on Monday, five armed assailants broke into her apartment.
They dragged her out of bed. They tied her hands behind her back. They rifled through her belongings and made away with over $11 million worth of jewelry.
According to numerous sources, Kardashian screamed and begged for her life, telling the men that she had two little kids at home.
Sources say they only spoke French, however, with the exception of the word “ring,” which they yelled over and over until Kim told them where they could fin the $4 million diamond Kanye had recently given her.
Talk about harrowing.
With Kim safe and sound, the real question now is who is to blame for this incident.
Kardashian typically travels with a bodyguard at all times, but she had sent him away to look at Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner after she went to bed on Sunday night.
So some believe the robbery could have been an inside job, perpetrated by those who somehow knew Kim would be alone in her apartment.
A source close to the reality star told Entertainment Tonight that she is “very, very shaken up” by the incident.
“She thought she was going to die,” the source adds.
“They put a gun to her head while they were searching the apartment. She was crying, begging them for her life. It’s an absolute awful story. One of the most terrifying experiences of her life.
Crazy. Totally crazy.
It takes a lot to make us feel sorry for Kim Kardashian.
But this incident clearly qualifies as a lot… and then some.
