"Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers," the spokesperson said.

"She is badly shaken but physically unharmed."

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

The 35-year-old reality TV star was reported to have been in the French city attending Paris Fashion Week with her mother, Kris Jenner, and her sister, Kendall Jenner.

Her husband, Kanye West, abruptly ended his performance at the Meadows Festival in New York on Sunday night.

The rapper told the audience that he had to cut his gig short as he had a "family emergency".

A number of fans caught on video the moment he announced he was leaving.

In a later statement, the event's organisers said: "Due to a family emergency, Kanye West was forced to end his performance towards the end of his set.

"We appreciate the great show he put on for fans to close the inaugural Meadows Festival.

"Our thoughts are with West and his family."
