Kim Kardashian targeted by masked robbers in Paris jewellery heist

French police are investigating after an armed robbery in Paris during which US reality TV star Kim Kardashian was held up at gunpoint by masked men who reportedly stole jewellery worth several million pounds.

Kardashian has been in Paris for fashion week. She attended the Givenchy show on Sunday evening.

Paris has been a special place for Kardashian and her husband Kanye West, who spent the weekend there before marrying in Florence in May of 2014.

It is unclear if the couple's two children, three-year-old North and 10-month-old Saint, were with Kardashian in the hotel room.

Her spokeswoman said the reality TV star "is badly shaken but physically unharmed" after her ordeal on Sunday night, but offered no other details.

A Paris police official confirmed there was a robbery involving Kardashian, and that an investigation was under way.

Kardashian's spokeswoman had earlier told CNN there were two armed masked men, although it was later reported that there were five.

Kanye West was performing at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York at the time. He abruptly ended his set on Sunday night after telling his fans he had a family emergency.

"I'm sorry, family emergency I have to stop the show," West told the audience.

Kardashian was targeted last week by a serial celebrity prankster who attempted to accost her as she was entering a restaurant.

Kardashian West was also attacked outside a Paris fashion week show in 2014. She was not hurt in either incident.
