Kanye West looked distraught as he rushed off stage after learning his wife Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint in her hotel room on Sunday night.
The 39-year-old rapper was performing at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in Queens, New York when an aide rushed out on stage to deliver the news after which he hurriedly told crowds: ‘I’m sorry. I have a family emergency. I have to stop the show.’
In the midst of his energetic performance, a fan recorded a clip of the moment Kanye was in the middle of performing his 2008 hit Heartless when he abruptly cut the set short to come to wife’s aid.
