PARIS, FRANCE (ABC) -- Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint in a private mansion early Monday in Paris, according to a spokesperson, in a brazen burglary that saw multiple suspects run off with approximately $10 million worth of jewelry.

A spokesperson for Kardashian West confirmed the incident, saying "two armed masked men dressed as police officers," were behind the hold up, and adding, "She is badly shaken but physically unharmed."

Five individuals dressed as policemen entered Kim Kardashian’s private mansion overnight, a French judicial source confirmed to ABC News.

The thieves stole a ring worth approximately 4 millions euros (about $4.5 million at the current exchange rate), and a box full of jewelry worth approximately 5 million euros ($5.6 million).

Kardashian West was in the city for Paris Fashion Week.

Also on Sunday, Kanye West cut short his set at a New York City music festival due to what he described as "a family emergency."

According to Billboard, West ended his set at the Meadows Festival in Queens 20 minutes early, at 9:40 p.m., during a performance of his song "Heartless," and announced to the crowd that he had a family emergency.

The Twitter account for the Meadows Festival posted, "Due to an emergency, Kanye West had to end his performance early. Please get home safely."
