Five gunmen tied up and robbed Kim Kardashian in her Paris hotel room early Monday, stealing jewelry worth more than $ 10 million dollars, police said.

Kardashian was overseas for Paris Fashion Week and attended the Givenchy show with her mother, Kris Jenner, and a dinner organized by Tunisian-born couturier Azzedine Alaia, according to RTL France.

The robbers handcuffed a concierge during a early morning heist at a private residence near the Madeleine church. He was forced, also at gunpoint, to lead the suspects to Kardashian’s room, according to police officials who were not authorized to speak on the record.

The suspects then tied up the fashionista and locked her in the bathroom before pilfering her room. The five men escaped on bikes and are at large, the officials said.

A jewelry box containing valuables worth about $ 6.7 million and a ring worth about $ 4.4 million were taken from Kardashian’s room.

Her children, North and Saint, were not on the scene during the brazen robbery around 3 a.m. and nobody was hurt, a source told the Daily News.

“She is badly shaken but physically unharmed,” the source said.

The source initially said two assailants disguised as cops were behind the holdup.

Paris cops did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Kardashian blew kisses to future sister-in-law Blac Chyna in a Snapchat video posted about an hour before the robbery.

Kim Kardashian’s Snapchats sent about an hour before the robbery were dedicated to Blac Chyna’s baby shower. 

“Hate when I post a video & accidentally mute the sound! I was wishing Rob & Chyna a happy baby shower from Paris,” Kardashian said in her last Snapchat dispatch.

Upon hearing news of the robbery, her rapper husband, Kanye West, bolted from a sold-out concert he was headlining in Queens citing a “family emergency.”

Witnesses said the “Famous” artist was abruptly pulled aside by an assistant while performing his 2008 hit “Heartless.” He then stopped the music, dropped the microphone and ran off stage during the Meadows Festival.

“I’m sorry. Family emergency. I have to stop the show,” West said.

The disappointed fans, who dropped anywhere from $ 140 to $ 260 to attend the Meadows Festival, were then forced to leave early.

“Dude just ran on stage and grabbed Kanye and he said, ‘Sorry guys, family emergency I have to leave the show’ and just ran off the stage,” Twitter user Joe Berg said.

“It was wild, too, because Kanye ignored the dude at first like on some ‘I can’t leave’ and dude wouldn’t leave without Kanye leaving with him.”

Some concertgoers expressed suspicion, though, that the drama was another publicity stunt.

Meadows Festival officials tweeted that West had to end his performance early, also citing a family emergency, and told concertgoers to “please get home safely.”

“Kanye West was forced to end his performance towards the end of his set,” a Meadows statement read. “We appreciate the great show he put on for fans to close out the inaugural Meadows Festival. Our thoughts are with West and his family.”

Days earlier, serial pest Vitalii Sediuk made a daring, caught-on-video attempt to kiss the reality TV star’s backside outside a Paris Fashion Week event.

Kardashian was walking into L’Avenue when Sediuk attempted to buss her famous butt. Kardashian’s bodyguard tackled the man mid-pucker.

Sediuk has made a name for himself accosting celebrities.

His other targets have included Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith and America Ferrera.

He ambushed Kardashian outside the Paris fashion week in 2014. She was not hurt in the bizarre encounter.
