A “terrified” Kim Kardashian was reportedly so inconsolable after being robbed by armed gunmen that her husband Kanye West couldn’t immediately understand what she was saying over the phone.
The reality star broke the disturbing news to West in a trans-Atlantic call shortly after the terrifying ordeal, during which five thieves invaded her room in Paris, tied her up and stole more than $ 10 million worth of jewelry, People reports.
“Kim was terrified,” an insider close to the rapper told the magazine. “She was just hysterical when she talked to Kanye. He said she was really upset and it took him a few seconds to understand what she was saying to him.”
West, 39, was midway through his performance at the Meadows Festival in Queens when he was told what had happened to his wife of two years.
The “Famous” artist quickly ended his set while he was in the middle of his hit song “Heartless,” telling the audience there had been a “family emergency.”
“He wanted to get to her as soon as he could,” the source told People. “He told her that he couldn’t care less about the jewelry; he’s just thankful that she’s okay.”
Kardashian emerged unharmed physically from the horrific experience but was “badly shaken,” a source told the Daily News.
The reality star, 35, returned to New York on a private jet early Monday morning and was reunited with West shortly after landing at the Teterboro Airport in New Jersey.
The couple was escorted back to their Manhattan apartment by a sprawling motorcade featuring at least eight SUVs and dozens of bodyguards.
Kardashian returned to New York on Monday, where she was reunited with West.

Kardashian — who was in the City of Light for fashion week — considered getting robbed on of her “biggest fears,” an insider close to the reality star told People.
“She’s always known the threats are out there, but for something to happen, it’s almost unimaginable,” the source said. “It’s going to take her a very long time to feel safe again.”
Kardashian’s two young children, North and Saint, were not with her when the robbery took place. The five thieves remain at large.
